If you’re reading this, it means you are paying attention to Michigan State football for whatever reason. Each game has gone from bad loss, to tough loss, to “we let that one slip away”, to a comedy of errors that even had Matt freaking Millen saying “That’s some bad football.” Millen knows bad football and the Spartans surprised him.
It truly has become a Detroit Lions-esque feeling of “How are they going to lose this one?” and it’s something different every time.
Maryland was turnovers, Iowa was offensive ineptitude, and Rutgers was a hodgepodge of turnovers, coaching blunders, and just sloppy play overall.
Yes, the coach staff did not put players in the best position to win, which is the opposite of their job and these are kids we are talking about, but the hard truth is that there’s only about 10-15 players out of 116 on the roster that belong on an upper-tier Power Five roster. Does any player on this team crack the starting lineup on Michigan? Ohio State? Washington? I won’t even entertain the thought of any of these players seeing playing time at Georgia or Texas.
Katin Houser and Jordan Hall are great and all, but they’re young and made plenty of mistakes on Saturday. Houser should have had at least two interceptions but I’m OK with him being aggressive with these throws. He moved the ball and the offense had two separate 14 play drives which was a goal for the offense in the first four weeks and couldn’t get it done.
I have so many grievances with this team but I’ll get into it later.
For now, let’s see how Michigan State graded out on Saturday.
