Fresh off pure domination in the Big House, I’ve come up with a new slogan for Sparta going forward.
The Spartans redefined execution today. They ran at will, they blocked ferociously, they broke tackles, they created turnovers, and, perhaps most importantly, in the words of an inebriated Spartans fan in Washington, D.C., they made you say “Heisman, my ass” about Denard Robinson.
Here are the knocks on State. “They had the luxury of five straight home games.” Yes, now they’ve walked into the largest NCAA football stadium and knocked off No. 18 Michigan. “Wisconsin was overrated.” A vauge argument, but beyond that, okay, now they’ve beaten two ranked teams. I mean, what other knocks are there? I’ve heard “they aren’t that good.” “The defense sucks.” Blah, blah, blah. Why not?
So here is what State’s schedule looks like:
@ #15 Iowa
@ Penn State
Does anyone see a team on that schedule that makes you say, “No wayyy they beat that team.” If there is, you really have a soft grasp on college football. That’s a very winnable schedule for a very talented team that has done nothing but take care of business this year.
Rose Bowl. Why not? National Champions. Sure, why not?
