As some of you might remember, I'm a Michigan State fan (boo! hiss!) but I try to keep up on all of the Big Ten's blogs to see the goings-on around the conference. Mgoblog is a great source of information, so that explains why I'm here. Now, down to brass tacks.
After watching the abysmal Utah opener and the lackluster Michigan State flop against California, what do you guys think this season holds for the two in-state teams? I think Michigan is going to improve enough to win 6-7 games, since each game is a learning experience for them, and just because I can't imagine Michigan in an ND-esque collapse. Threet will probably have to step up and Rodriguez utilize whatever strengths he can find on the offense. Barring a Spartan face plant against the league's dregs as seems to happen too often, I'm seeing a 7-8 win season for MSU, just because Hoyer can't possibly do worse than the Cal game as a senior, and Ringer alone gives our running game a decent shot at everyone except for OSU. What do you think?
