The Michigan State Spartans come into this year with a very talented team. Coach Gangsta has talented players at the necessary skill positions to take the Spartans to the B1G Championship this year and content for a Nation Title as well. They will mainly have to contend with Northwestern in the Legends division this year for the right to play in Indy in December, but Coach Gangsta should have amble time to prepare for that high touted game as they do not play Northwestern until week 6. Michigan State and Northwestern are the only two teams ranked in the Legends division while the Leaders division currently contains 4 ranked teams. Who ever comes out of the Legends division between Coach Gngsta4Lyphe and NYJuggalo45 will have a tough match-up for the B1G title. OFFENSE Lead by RS Junior QB Connor Cook and his deadly accurate arm, B1G defenses should be put on notice. This is a Spartans team that will be able to score points, and lots of 'em. Not only do they start one of the most accurate QBs in the country, but their starting RS Senior running back Nick Hill is a speedster with greater than 90 ratings in most rushing categories including break tackles, elusiveness and spin move. These two are accompanied by a deep mature wide receiving core that will give defenses fits. They can stretch the field by sending guys deep with enough talent to also run guys under-neath. Defenses will have to pick their poison. There will be work to be done on the recruiting trail this year as 3 of their top 5 lineman are all seniors, as well as their top 3 wide receivers. Although, Nick Hill is only a Junior he is also expected to leave for the NFL draft following behind Larry Caper, Jevon Ringer and Edwin Baker who all also left early. DEFENSE Pat Narduzzi and Coach Gngsta4Lyphe have created and recruited a well oiled machine. The Spartans have top talent at every position with no weaknesses evident. Led by Senior OLB Tiawan Jones (88) and Senior FS Kurtis Drummond (88), look for opposing offenses to try and spread the Spartan defense thin and expose gaps. With a deep roster full of young talent, Michigan State will be a force for years to come. PREDICTIONS With games against #2 Washington Raidernation, #3 Notre Dame, #9 Northwestern NYJuggalo45, #5 Wisconsin GMONEY 15 and #10 Penn State dj illmatic 23 - look for the Spartans to win at least 7 game this year, but no more than 9... My guess is a 9-3 record and 2nd in Legends division behind Northwestern.
