2008 Game 8: MSU vs. Ohio State
Reserved Optimism for the OSU Game… This is the most difficult team the Spartans have faced…
Prediction: Spartans Win Home game: MSU 24 - Buckeyes 20
The Spartans can beat the Buckeyes, but this is going to be a Back Alley fight.. A very physical game…
Interesting posting from the Men of the Scarlet and Gray : http://menofthescarletandgray.com/
Sounds as if there are internal conflicts inside the OSU locker room adding to the on field woes.. There is no doubt about the caliber of the Buckeye team, they are good, something has happened to have them fall off the tracks of a national championship pace…
Original I had them picked to win the Big Ten and head to the BCS Championship game: http://blog.spartymsu.com/2008/08/04/2008-spartan-football-predictions-ohio-state.aspx
Numbers again going into this game:
The way the Spartans are improving, and the way OSU is stumbling, The Spartans have an excellent chance to win.. I am cautious since this is such an evenly match game… And this is an important Game and will predict the future of both teams.... If they win.. could the Spartans be in the Rose Bowl, with JoePa going to the BCS Championship Game ...???
* The Spartans have played teams that run the Spread: Indiana and NorthWestern…
* The Spartan Defense is improving faster than expected….
* The Spartans are playing as a unified Team…
* Hoyer is a good QB, and getting more accurate…
* OSU did not score an offensive Touchdown in win over Purdue.
* Spartan Secondary is healthier, Otis, Davis, Rucker are back.
* OSU dissension the Locker Room… Whos the QB leader… Whos supporting who…?
* OSU: DE Wilson out, OL Boone out, OL Adams out….
* OSU OL allowed 3 Sacks on Pryor….
* Yes, OSU RB Chris Wells is Awesome, We have Ringer.. More Awsomer....
* Yes, OSU ML James Laurinaitis is a Super LB… hes one guy…
* Yes, Malcolm Jenkins is a fantastic CB, but Dell is a great receiver….
The Spartans match up well in the is game… The Big Mo is with the Green and White….
Got to give it to our Spartans:…..
