And just like that, the season is over. What a season it was!

  • 11 wins, the most ever for MSU
  • A Big Ten Championship, the first since 1990
  • #8 BCS / #7 AP and USA Today ranking after the regular season
  • Beat Michigan for the third year running which MSU hasn’t done since ’65-’66-’67
  • Beat Penn State in Happy Valley for the first time since ’65
  • Beat Notre Dame on an amazing OT fake field goal
  • Beat Wisconsin handily, their only loss on the year
  • Became a team that finishes strong with big come-from-behind wins against Northwestern and Purdue

College football is back and I’m really fired up.

Go Spartans! Go BigTen!

I might even try the BigTen Network on-demand this year for MSU games not televised.

I wonder how Michigan will do this year, and will it be good enough to save RichRod? Or Notre Dame, will they show indications of a return to glory? Or Ohio State / Iowa / Wisconsin / Penn State; will they all live up to expectations? Do you think Nebraska will win the Big12 in their last year in the conference before joining the BigTen?
