ES is working on a Game Day preview as we speak; the nuts and bolts will be at the Huffington Post. In the meantime, the ES was asked to comments on the upcoming matchup between our Spartoonies and the Buckeyes. Here's a hint, with comments about our struggles vs Eastern:
"EMU didn’t do anything. Rather, the main issue with Michigan State is its receiving corps. In the past two games – Notre Dame and Eastern Michigan – there have been a DOZEN dropped passes… in each game. I mean, right in the receiver’s hands. My dead grandma could catch those passes. Former Spartan receiver Charles Rogers could still catch those passes, even if he was on crack and dragging his seven illegitimate kids behind him. For the most part, Maxwell HAS hit these guys in stride, beautiful passes (his best game so far was against Notre Dame), only for these lanky wideouts to drop them, doing Maxwell no favors. These drops have killed drives, not allowed Bell to break out, and asked the defense to step up after giving up poor field position..."
