We are heading into the second half of the season and Michigan State football needs to just wipe the slate and start fresh.
Although the Spartans are 2-4 on the season, they need to move ahead like they’re 0-0 and try to finish the second half with a winning record. If Michigan State finishes with a winning record in the final six games, it makes a bowl. If it doesn’t, it misses a bowl.
A lot is on the line moving forward.
So let’s get bold for the final six games of the regular season.
5. Elijah Collins takes over as RB1
After six games, it’s clear: Elijah Collins needs to be the starting running back.
The Spartans have had a less than effective run game and he’s been the unfortunate odd man out for the most part. He’s taken a back seat to Jarek Broussard and Jalen Berger when he should be getting the bulk of the touches.
Unfortunately, he’s had just 16 carries for 103 yards and three touchdowns this season. He is averaging a touchdown basically once every five carries. That’s insane efficiency.
I think we’ll finally see the staff giving him the nod as the starter and he’ll take over as RB1 and even put together a couple of 100-yard games in the final half of the season.
