I knew they scheduled their own non-conference opponents (and the date and venue of those games), but I didn't know they decided WHEN they play their conference opponents. That seems to me like an idiotic (NOT gutsy) move by the athletic director. I looked at the schedule and figured their season would be over after that gauntlet of games. But it makes me ill to think that the Spartans CHOSE to do it that way. They will be lucky to go 2-2. But it probably doesn't matter because they look pretty bad, anyhow.
