Even the most vehement skeptic would have to admit they didn’t see this scenario coming: Michigan State’s football team needs a win Saturday at Minnesota simply to become bowl-eligible.
If you’re a fan of MSU program and care about its long-term success and perception, this should be an important game for you.
It’s a big deal for a coach to be able to say they’ve never had a losing season, that they’ve always reached a bowl game, even in the down years. That shows stability and strength.
This is a big game for MSU. Just for different reasons than we wall thought it might be a few months ago.
How much are you still invested? What does MSU have to do Saturday to win? And what’s your prediction?
Entering the final week of our prediction contest — with the winner being featured on this blog (or receiving a Chris Solari autographed picture; their choice) — GreenGuy is in the lead among our group with two wins. AAsparty, Marky Mark, Lancelot, MD, MLM89 and last week’s winner, behind the green curtain, have one each.
If someone picks the score exactly this week, it’ll be worth two wins.
