The weight on your shoulders is finally gone.
The fear of missing a bowl game for the first time since 2006 has dissipated. You didn't celebrate after the game, you breathed a sigh of relief. The top goals weren't reached, we know that. But Saturday's 26-10 win over Minnesota was still a very big one, just not for reasons we expected before the season. Mark Dantonio guaranteed it, and his players backed him up.
Behind a career day for Le'Veon Bell and an all-time great performance from the defense, MSU finally pulled away, breaking a streak of seven straight games decided by four points or less and earning the program's sixth straight bowl berth.
Side note: I thought those Minnesota unis looked great, and their total set of jersey/pants combos are really good.
First, looking back at my keys to the game.
