The Only Staff takes their respective stabs at how the 2014 Michigan State Spartans will fare.
Blake Baumgartner: 11-2 with a loss to Oregon, one loss in the Big Ten and a Big Ten Championship Game win over Wisconsin.
Pete Rossman: 11-2 in the regular season. Lose at Oregon and against either Michigan or Ohio State, win the Big Ten title game against Iowa.
HeckDorland: 9-3 on the year.
KJ: Long-time readers know that I am an avowed non-predictor of game results. Last year, I had a shtick about it we included in these posts. I think I'll spare everyone that this year. Go Green.
Joe Tuohey: Put me down for 9-3 (6-2) on the season.
Jim McEvoy: I'll say it: 12-0. Sadler plays quarterback in the Nebraska game and we win by 50.
Josh Moon: Upset Oregon, drop one conference game. Win the conference but miss the playoff deeply angering the fan base. Lose a letdown bowl game. 12-2.
Jameson Draper: MSU goes 11-1, upsetting Oregon but dropping a soft game late in the B1G schedule. They miss the college playoff because the polls hate losses late in the season.
Jeremy_Dewar: 11-2 on the season. Lose to Oregon and Nebraska or Penn State. Win the Conference title but miss the playoff. Win the bowl game.
Jeremy Warnemuende: 10-2, with a loss to Oregon and a disappointing effort on the road against Maryland. The Spartans will get a shot at their real rival, though, and beat Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship.
Tim Conner: 10-2 regular season record.
Dan Baker: 10-2 (7-1), lose to Oregon and either Maryland or Penn State, win Big Ten title game against Wisconsin, miss the playoff but play in the Cotton or Peach Bowl.
Ben Wilensky: 10-2 regular season, with losses to Oregon and Penn State (!).
