I was just looking over the box score of the Michigan State v. Notre Dame game. I had no idea that Dayne Crist shredded the Spartan Defense. 461 yards against a statue? I'm pretty sure that Denard presents more challenges that Dayne Crist. (Obviously) IMHO I think Michigan will have more passing yards than rushing yards this week.
I also think that the same methods that Sparty wants to use against us will be employed against them this week. I think we pass first, run to convert third downs and keep their offense off of the field. This game, to me, will look much more like the UCONN game.
