Well, here we are. The big game. MSU’s best chance was for the entire team to catch COVID. Unfortunately, the Spartans can’t even catch a virus. After giving the ball away not five, not six, but seven times to lowly New Jersey State University (actually it was 8, but a penalty wiped out one of the giveaways), the Big Green has to find a way to fix things real quick. Mr. T’s preseason goal to make it to the Quick Lane Bowl, RedBox Bowl, or Fenway Bowl are no longer options, canceled due to the COVID — so we need to find a way to get to 6 or 7 wins to play in the Poulan WeedEater Bowl. It’s said that teams improve the most between game one and game two – unfortunately, there are two teams playing today… Alas, not much hope in Mudville this season.

Chalk this one up to Jesus Harbaugh – the most interesting thing we can learn is… will he remember to wear his khakis today? The ES bets on the khakis.
