Let's take a look.. 2008 v 2012
2008-Hoyer- 180/353, 2400 yards, 51%, 9/9 TD/INT ratio.. note Cousins had 300 passing yards as well with 2/1 TD/INT ration
2012- Maxwell- 234/446, 2600 yards, 53%, 13/9 TD/INT ration
2008- Ringer- 390 att, 1600 yards, 22 TDs
2012- Bell- 382 att, 1800 yards, 12 TDs
2008 top 4 WRs-
Dell- 36 rec/679 yards/3 TDs
2012 top WRs
Then in 2009.. MSU had 410 yards of offense and averaged 30 ppg.. without Hoyer and Ringer
And we went from 9-3 to 6-6 from 2008 to 2009....
I'm honestly shocked we had 2 WR's over 500 yards this season
What was the offensive line situation in 2009? Was it as imperiled by injuries as it was this season? The defense will keep MSU in every game this season.
Why are you comparing Hoyers senior year to Max's junior year?
Yeah, but we also had a shitty defense in 2009. That was back when people were still calling for Narduzzi's head. Even with Gholston and Adams going, our defense for next year is light years ahead of that 2009. We won't give up 42, 42, 38, and 29 points to Penn State, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Central respectively like in 2009.
For the same reason I've been doing it for 3 weeks now. The WR and RB situations for Hoyer and Maxwell were damn near identical.
Can't we wait until at least spring before we start with the "breakdowns." The corpse of the 2012 season isn't even cold yet.

You're in college. The window of opportunity to drink and do drugs and take advantage of young girls is getting smaller by the day.
