how is northwestern holding up with injuries coming into this game?
Who is, with Bell? I didn't look at the depth chart I just looked at your reply.
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
BANG....not into the coaches show too much but it would be a good question for Coach D'....why not Kings at KR?
It's Hill OR Bell at one return spot and Caper at the other. Elsworth isn't listed on the 2-deeps at returner, which I believe he was against Nebraska. I was just saying that MD went through a phase where he was putting bigger guys back there this season.
That worked fine with Devin Thomas in 2007, but he was 6'2 218 and was very fast. Love Bell, but he's not a returner.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.

Colter got banged up a bit and had to come out against UM. Looked like an ankle/knee. He finished the game though. Venric Mark also got dinged up and had to come out for a stretch.
Biggest injury concern is CB Nick VanHoose. He's a RS FR who's by far their best cover CB; he's been out the last few games with a shoulder problem. If he's not playing, things look very favorable for the MSU passing O.
I would hope so.....Gardner pretty much had his way as have other teams this year. Did you guys actualy WATCH their game the other day? They had numerous guys limp off and not return to the game...including #44 their stud LB'er who looked very gimpy. They are banged up boys......no excuses this week.

Bye was much needed. Quite frankly, if it comes after the Wisconsin game, I think MSU beats Nebraska. Being down to Mitchell White at FS is not a good place for MSU to be in; he and Hicks blew coverages on that final drive. Can't blame them; they're the 5th and 6th safety options behind Lewis, Drummond, Jones and Williamson for a reason.
Very encouraged by the OL play vs. Nebraska. 238 yards on the ground, 5.5 YPC for the team, 0 sacks allowed? Treadwell at LG turned out to be the key to success; that allowed Jack Allen to move to C, where he's most comfortable. Happy to see Dan France, who struggled vs. Wisconsin's speed rushers, get the better of Eric Martin, Nebraska's top edge rusher.
+1....thought the same thing as I sat there and watched that game Rocky: our defense moved like they were in quicksand. To have a bye after TEN games is ..........ASSININE and I've been bitching about it all year. What's the point of even having one at that point? I think teams that had a bye 2-4 weeks earlier are fresher and have an advantage: period. As I said, no excuses this week: we are fresh and ready to go I would think and hope.
Now, now, no need for revisionist history here. We WON the game. The refs just took it away.
It was only after the redshirts got burned that the inital starters stepped up their game. Competition is good. Besides, we have some good looking receivers coming next year along with Madaris coming off his redshirt.
The counter is that Ohio State also had their bye in week 10 and is 10-0. Then again, MSU has Wisconsin and UM before the bye and tOSU had them afterwards . . .
