2. A 4-3 defensive scheme
While I loved Jacoby Windmon at defensive end for a couple of games, it was easy for opposing lines to key in on him when everyone else was hurt and basically shut down the pass rush.
Now that he’s back at his natural linebacker position, I feel like he’s only going to take his game to the next level. His first taste of the position since his UNLV days was against Wisconsin and he looked like a star. He finished with 11 tackles and a pick and he turned that defense around quickly against the Badgers.
Michigan State needs a 4-3 much more than it needs a 4-2-5 because the Michigan rushing attack is elite. The Spartans need a 4-3 to stop the run. Plus, the 4-2-5 hasn’t helped against the pass anyways so why even continue using it?
The 4-2-5 scheme needs to be put to rest and we all saw what kind of success Michigan State can have with a 4-3. Keep that going and make that the default scheme.
