I was wondering what everyone thinks about MSU's team for 2009? They lose their QB and star running back. Beyond that, I am not really sure who else they lose. Their schedule seems favorable seeing as they replaced Cal w/ Montana State for their opener, they no longer have OSU on their schedule and besides ND round out their non-conference schedule w/ MAC teams.
I would think their offense will take a step backwards. They will be in a similar QB situation as us w/ either playing a highly rated freshman or a lightly used backup. They have the advantage of simpler offense that should be easier for the freshman to pickup. I seem to remember their WR's being young. They will take a hit at RB w/ Ringer being gone and having to make up 40 carries a game somewhere else. How will their line be? How will their defense be?
