[Bump. Good stuff from OTE. --LVS.]
"MSU is not a one trick pony or a team that tripped and fell onto 11 wins."
One trick pony? No. Tripped and fell into 11 wins? I'm not sure I'd call it "tripped and fell," but MSU was three plays away from going 8-4.
Still, that's doesn't change the argument made by OTE, that MSU has the talented pieces in place to make this a competitive game, and Alabama hasn't exactly come together as a group. Personally, I think if MSU plays a flawless first half and successfully establishes the run, then this could be a very competitive game. But it's going to take MSU's best 60-minute effort of the season.
