Very compelling game, yes? I like Sparty here. As much as I was all "Notre Dame blew you out, what a bunch of LOSERS," that kickoff return TD was really the difference in the game. I thought State contained Floyd pretty well, say, like I wish we could have done that. And when did Cunningham get super good. He was always stellar, but I never really saw what I am seeing now. He's clearly a pro and I wasn't even paying attention. State's LB play has also been strong, at least to the naked eye, and I thought that was going to be a weakness for them. They have been lethargic as all hell, I will give you that, but I thought they were snatched pretty quick from the Top 25 after a losing a nearly impossible game to win. (ND had to win that, if that would have been us that week, um yeah, not a chance.)
I also don't think it is legit to consider OSU all washed up as many around here have, especially local media, but I think this sets up well for State. Ohio still trying to find itself, State with a ton of experience. O-line weak, but they overcome it and get the W 24-16. I also want that to be the case, because I don't want them stewing for two weeks about a loss and then going Ivan Drago on us in their military gear. A State win tommorow is good for Michigan, IMO.
