Andre Ware chose Michigan State as his favorite in the Big Ten followed by Ohio State and Nebraska. I'm sorry but I cannot see them repeating what they did last year. While their offense will be pretty damn good they loose the heart and soul of that defense. 

Hopefully Michigan can step up this year and play to their potential and put Sparty back in their place.

I see Nebraska and Ohio State on top of the Big Ten this year. I hope we can fill the third roll but thats a stretch. I truly think we have the talent for it. Its just can we string the pieces together. 

I love how Greg Mattison stated that our trademark will be how we we hit. 

and I also loved when Hoke said we can't be beat if the other team doesn't score. I have not been this excited for a new season in a very long time.

I think they've neglected to take into account Sparty's schedule.  I can't believe they really think MSU will win the Big Ten with this schedule:

@Ohio State









They'll be lucky if they finish 4-4 in the Big Ten.  Minnesota, Indiana and Northwestern are the only games they'll be highly favored in.

minus the Tat Five, though. If the game was in EL, I'd say Sparty would be favored by a score. In Columbus, I still think they'll have more talent on the field than the Bucks without Pryor, Herron, Posey, and Adams (throw in Thomas for the hell of it).  If they win that, they get a open date before Michigan and then Wisco at home with a new QB ... I'd like to think they'll struggle early like WolvinLA suggests they might  ... just not confident it's set up to happen.

I normally don't have a rooting interest the ND/Sparty game, but this year I hope ND demoralizes them.

few big comebacks last year and theyre a 4 loss team. I don't think they got any better this season although Cousins is a Senior I don't think it will be enough. Any chance their RBs take a step back?

I see more teaching in the videos this year than the past 3 combined. Is the media making it a point to show, are the coaches asking for them to show it, or was it not going on the past 3 years?

It's difficult to assume that this kind of instructions was not a part of the previous regime, but give the player testimonials in the video clip, it's safe to assume that the instruction was not there or it was pretty much worthless by today's standards. Given that the last season's coaches preached fundamentals as a focus on their plan, it seams like it was the latter and now that the right combination of talent, instruction, and technique is finally here, I could only rejoice at what this program has transformed to.

Thanks for the video, too. Meyer doing the road show, what's up with that!?!
