The Spartans have shown steady improvement under Mark Dantonio, going 7-6 in 2007 and 9-4 in 2008. The defense, with eight starters returning, should be solid, but the offense will have to replace Javon Ringer, the workhorse running back who had an insane 390 carries last season, the most in Division I-A. Michigan State is one of five teams to have never played a Division I-AA opponent since the NCAA adopted the division setup in 1978 (the others being USC, UCLA, Washington and Notre Dame). But the Spartans fall off the list Sept. 5 when they play host to I-AA Montana State. Thanks to Harry and Brian!
While "Joe the Plumber" and "Sarah Palin" were popular costumes on Halloween, Michigan State fans had something else in mind. Check out "Michigan Touchdown." If you don't know what were talking about, click this link. Thanks to Bill.
