Some things are just meant to be. Michigan State was meant to be in this Title game. After all, they’ve earned it! Michigan State’s October schedule was brutal, but they survived. Wins against Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, and a slip against Nebraska are clues, but honestly, they could've easily been undefeated during that stretch of the schedule.
Wisconsin has earned it as well, but their motivation banter is lacking in substance to what the Spartans are promoting this Saturday at Lucas Oil Stadium for the inaugural Big Ten Title trophy.
Spartan Fans aren’t you just worn out…tired? Yea, I’m with you, it was in my last blog. ENOUGH!
How much is enough? Wisconsin wants to view this game as if they want pay back for a Hail Mary pass completion for a Michigan State victory earlier in the season 37-31. I say… GREAT!
Michigan State is about to annihilate the Wisconsin Badgers and here is why:
1. The first matchup seemed close, but it wasn’t. Michigan State basically gave Wisconsin 14 points (official's bad calls included). It will not happen again!
2. Lucas Oil Stadium plays to the Spartans strengths. If Wisconsin thought the Spartan defense was fast before, just wait until game day! The Spartans will dominate the speed differential on all fronts when it comes to artificial turf play.
3. The Spartan offense has answered the bell. Michigan State is peaking offensively (i.e. 41 pts per game average the last 4 weeks) and there's no doubt its better offensively compared to the first time these teams met in East Lansing.
CUT IN HALF
I guess it is hard for some to fathom, but Wisconsin’s offensive production will basically be cut in half due to Michigan State’s defensive efforts. Michigan State’s defense has done it all year, against every team, including Wisconsin! The Big Ten's leading rusher, Montee Ball, will be unproductive again.
What? How can this be?
I guess I was just imagining things, like when Montee Ball was knocked out of the first matchup.
MORE PUNISHIMENT is about to FOLLOW for Mr. Ball and it will be with MORE AUTHORITY! Sorry Ball fans, I just call em like I see em.
Is Bret Bielema really going to play the Pay Back card due to an earlier loss this season to MSU on a Hail Mary pass?
You have got to be kidding me!
It’s only another strength favoring Michigan State in this matchup. MSU is about to unleash a frustration against Wisconsin, which goes back to their Rose Bowl appearance a year ago.
WHY, you ask? BECAUSE IT WAS NOT EARNED, and that’s a sore point for Michigan State. It is time for Michigan State to remove all doubt. This may just be my two cents, but this weekend's game will NOT include MSU launching HAIL MARY’s this time around.
