Spartans lose big lead, lose 4th straight game.

Yeah, I’m not going to do what I normally do, which is try to find the silver lining. And I certainly don’t have the energy to write up a full recap. I’m just not in the mood for all that after this one. MSU found a new way to lose a game, a game that many thought we were going to win handily when the score was 24-6. Nope, MSU blew the lead and fell to 2-4. Now if MSU is going to make it to a bowl game, they will have to beat at least one of Ohio State, Penn State, or um, in addition to all three of their other games.

So right now I don’t have the ability to try inspiring hope. I am sad and upset at the dysfunction around the MSU football program. Well, at least MSU switched quarterbacks today. And I even will say that Katin Houser looked impressive for someone making his first start. Unlike Noah Kim these last three weeks, I won’t put any of the blame for today’s loss on Houser. Maybe MSU found its quarterback for the next few years. That is if he stays.

Speaking of people leaving, I don’t think MSU is going to make any changes to the coaching staff before season’s end, though I certainly would not be upset about it. But let’s conduct a survey anyway. Let’s say MSU was going to axe a member of the coaching staff, who would you vote off?


Which MSU coach would you get rid of right now?
