I'm asking this because MSU has been doing the sort of winning the last couple of years that often leads to complacency. OSU looks to me like they suffer from champions' malaise* this year. Florida State looked like that last year to me at times too. I wouldn't be surprised if MSU is plagued by that this season.
I know MSU has had some injuries this year, but have they also looked like they're waiting to turn it on, so to speak, when they play Michigan (and whomever else they consider worthy of their full attention)? Or do their flaws seem to be more about their injuries, the loss of Narduzzi, losses to graduation, etc.?
Any insight you can provide on this (as well as unrelated gifs, snarky comments, jokes about koalas, questions about the heath of my mother - she's fine, by the way) would be greatly appreciated. Spasibo.
*Yes, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
