Post Sparty Football 2016
The Spartans, as usual, flying under the radar to start the 2016 season.

Game 1 - show nothing against Furman, typically Sparty start to the season

Game 2 - dominate Notre Dame with 36 straight points before going conservative and taking the foot off the pedal. Might be there toughest road game of the year.

Next up, Wisconsin.

SOS - Same old Spartans...

Was nice to see them (or anyone) Pummel ND. ALways had respect for MSU and like Dantonio as a Coach. Like him even more as a person after hearing Ian Fitzsimmons ont he radio last night talk about his Daughter writing a letter before each game to Dantonio/The Team, and that on Sat Morning Dantonio called her to make sure she was still "Wearing her Brace everyday", before he told her he would make sure they "Beat Notre Dame" at the end of the call.

It was also nice to see UM come back after a disastrous 1st Qtr. I mostly like what I am seeing out of the team this year, but they are in a tricky situation where I still think we are over-rated at #4. I don't think we are ready to handle OSU yet (but could be by The Game) and expect MSU to be a very hard game as well. I Still think its good for all 3 teams if all 3 are strong each year (UM, MSU, OSU). Looking forward to UM-MSU this year, and some payback.

In my fantasy land, there can be no better season than both Big Blue AND Sparty beating the hell out of the Buckeyes! They need to make that happen!

Very good win against ND. Didn't think the result would be like that but I like that it ended up that way. Gonna be tough game vs Wisconsin.

O'Conner is playing a lot better than I was projecting and I'm really liking the WRs. They're catching almost everything thrown their way.

Wisconsin showed the weaknesses that ND didn't. O'Conner wasn't very accurate and made a lot of mistakes. Couldn't get ground game going. Also, should give Wisconsin credit - to have a true freshman make his first start and win in East Lansing is pretty impressive.

Spartans actually had more first downs (21-15), yards, less penalties, but the Badgers made the big plays and killed MSU on third and fourth downs.

Made a mistake. It was Mylon Hicks. Still a former Sparty. I think he just graduated with this year's rookie class didn't he?

Considering the Bears lost this past week, that made the MSU loss hurt a little less. Still sucks though.

Id hope so. I cant believe the margin of victory with the stat line telling an entirely different story. The again UM had the game won last year so you never know whats gunna happen with football.

Buckle up your chin straps Sparty. Every team that has played the Wolverines this year, was handed their worst defeat of the year by the Wolverines!

Have you watched the Spartans from the Indiana game forward - I don't think chin straps will help.
