MGoBoard Preview: Michigan State

MGoBoard Preview: Michigan State

Submitted by mrkid on October 6th, 2017 at 2:30 PM

It's Friday afternoon, I'm bored and dying for some more football discussion. I thought we could do our own MGoBoard version of Brian's "Cheap Thrills" from the preview column.

Submit your "Worry if..." moment(s) and your "Cackle with knowing glee if..." moment(s) for MSU. Here are mine.

Worry if...

- Devin Bush gets ejected for targeting

I'm worried the refs will be overly anxious with targeting calls in this game and because of the speed and intensity at which Bush plays the game, I could see him getting hit with a targeting and ejection.

I think we would see a drop off with the defense if Bush gets ejected. I would really hate to see this, mostly because I want to see Bush terrorize Lewerke and the Spartans.

Cackle with knowing glee if...

- O'Korn hits DPJ deep on more than one occasion.

I think if O'Korn can hit a deep ball or two to DPJ (or Gentry), we could really see MSU change what they do on defense and really swing momentum in our favor. I think their defense is vulernable to a player like DPJ getting behind them.

Prediction: Michigan, 27-13

I have seen quite a few over the years.  I think it is time to have a laugh about this rivalry and not be so serious. I will give you a couple of examples...

1.  Q: How do you keep the spartan football team off your lawn? 

     A: Put up goalposts.

2.  Mark Dantonio

Typical Sparty disrespekt, Chris Frey is the latest Spartan to be left off a major award watchlist. Hilarious bonus quote: "[Frey] plays with no regard for human life..." makes one wonder where he picked up that attitude.. link: https://spartanavenue.com/2017/07/19/michigan-state-football-chris-frey…

MSU Does not reach goal of 3-9 players selected in 2017 NFL Draft (But Toledo Did)

A Toledo Rocket Football player friend of mine, happened to mention an anomaly with this year's NFL Draft - that quite simply made my heart grow 3 sizes the day he told me.

In case you missed it, my former team and Alma Mater - THE University of Toledo Rockets - had MORE players drafted than Michigan State.

As a former player (siren alert!!) this makes me proud A.F.

As a Michigan fan, it makes me giggle with glee.

Perhaps next year they can try to get 2-10 players drafted and yet again fall short.
