BYU and that is not going to be an easy out. MSU could be looking at 3 losses in a row.

Dantonio should have no trouble with BYU at home. MSU wins by 2 TDs, BYU allowed more than 500 passing yards to Toledo on Friday night at home. If MSU is going to make a change at QB, now might be the time to do it.

Sparty hosts BYU (2-3), Sparty should win but not sure that offense will be able to get in the end zone much against teams that have a decent defense.

I seen one of those local reporter types last night when leaving work. I wont say his name but he likes poking Michigan and the Big Ten. Anyway gave Drew some crap, but it was all in fun. Told me "hey I picked Michigan to win a close one (vs Wisconsin)"


2013 last time Sparty wasn't ranked in the top 25

8-4 still would be a good year, and a possible win over Michigan

lmao


Mark Dantonio says fans who watch at home with "a big old beer can or soda pop" will have to "wait it out a little bit" with Tyler O'Connor.

Funny,

I was hoping for you to set expectations for '17 & beyond. I know your '14 & '15 classes were quite strong, '16 pretty sure too. M's '12 & '13 recruiting classes are dominating on the field this season (mostly just defensively) and they'll miss a ton of them team in '17.

I thought the coaching staff did a great job last year to get them to the playoffs, they are equally as bad this year.

I don't listen much to sports radio, but it was on when I got in the car. Absolutely hilarious!!


Mike Valenti Today (so far)


Wheels have falling off

Dantonio is going down with the ship

Thought he was watching John L Smith

Losing to BYU guaranteed

Dantoino has surrounded himself with his "buddys" who could only coach at Kent State

MSU will be lucky to win 6 games

He tends to go overboard on that stuff but some of his criticisms are warranted. The offensive game plan for the last two games was atrocious. It took them until the 4th quarter to realize Gerald Holmes is the best option at running back.

Yea, I think he went way overboard, as long as Dantonio is HC MSU will be fine.

EAST LANSING — Early Wednesday morning, after a photo of a clown holding balloons outside a dormitory surfaced on social media.

A mob of "clown hunters" about 200 students were running around the looking for clowns, but were unable to locate any clowns.


The clown hunt eventually devolved into an impromptu pep rally of sorts, with students yelling "Go Green" or proclaiming that the clown had simply been a sleepwalking Jim Harbaugh

Well it didn't take long for Drew Sharp to declare MSU's season over and that they should play the redshirt freshman backup now and bench O'Connor the rest of the year.

I wonder how long ago he wrote that article.

Nobody actually cares about Drew Sharp or his thoughts on anything sports, please don't give him anymore attention than he already gets.

Unfortunately, there is more than a kernel of truth in Sharp's mailed in column.

He is pretty much stating the obvious in this case.

I thought Sparty was going to struggle but not be this awful; somehow they'll be ready for M.
