Okay, so I took a few weeks off. I was distracted by starting a new job and a little thing called the Major League Baseball playoffs and the World Series.
Who would have thought the World Series would have interfered with paying close attention to Spartan football?
Turns out, it was a good thing this year.
We last left off before the Michigan State/Michigan game in Ann Arbor. Michigan State lost that as expected, then got blown out by Number One Ohio State at home the following week.
Last week, many people thought MSU turned the corner after the amazing comeback against Northwestern. MSU was down 38-3 in the third quarter and rallied for a 41-38 win, evening their record at 4-4 and 1-3 in conference.
They turned the corner right? They had shaken out of the post-Notre Dame funk, right?
Not so much.
The Spartans were crushed by Indiana (Indiana?) this weekend 46-21. They now stand at 4-5, 1-4 in conference.
If only the World Series could have gone on a few weeks longer, we could have avoided the end of the season all together.
