Let this be a reminder to all Michigan/ Detroit sports fans. Defense wins championships. UM has the 2nd best offense in college football and they can't win a big ten game. Did RichRod care at all about defense? Why would the team's defense get so bad since he took over? It's not like he's trying to install a whole new system and pushing good players out. Don't get it. Sorry, I digress. This is about MSU. A 1 loss season would be a huge success, especially if they can beat a real opponent in a bowl. They'll probably be the underdog because of this convincing loss, the deterioration of ND and UM (2 of their wins), and the absence of OSU on their schedule, so that is what this comes down to- proving that this loss was a fluke.
