SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Tonight ends a difficult year for Michigan State’s football program, probably more exhausting for the coaches and players and fans alike than many other 6-6 seasons.
Expectations were for much more than this. And MSU’s struggle to score touchdowns only played into the frustration.
As I wrote in today’s LSJ, I think this football program still passes the ‘eye test’ and has a chance to get back on track in 2013. But the offense has to improve, from its QB to creativity.
One of the questions that’s not easily answered is if expectations for MSU’s football program have become unrealistic? Expectations are that of an individual, so I’m not sure it can be answered fan base-wide. But I’d be curious what you think about this.
As for our year-long prediction contest, Green Guy was our winner with two wins. Hopefully we’ll have a feature on the guy here soon — unless he chooses the Chris Solari autographed photo instead.
Rckbuilder picked the Minnesota game closest, predicting 27-12.
Where do you see this program? And what do you see happening tonight?
I picked TCU 19-16. Just can’t see MSU scoring more than one touchdown right now. Maybe I’ve seen too much this season.
I’ll be hosting a live chat before for the game (9 p.m. ET) here at Greenandwhite.com. Hope to see you then.
