Michigan State Spartans Season Prediction, What Will Happen

There are a LOT of massive glitches that have to be fixed for an 11-2 team.

Obviously the pass defense has to do something right, the boatload of penalties have to stop, the late season losses Ohio State and Purdue were way too galling.

Michigan State is paying Mel Tucker $95 million to figure it out.

The contract created the stability for the long play here, and there’s a nice blend of things happening here. Tucker and the staff are going for the quick fix through the transfer portal, all while a strong recruiting class is setting the tone for the next several years.

It’s always flaky to throw in a mindset or attitude into a win total and prediction equation, but this is another good team that gets to be fueled by the disrespect that’s going to come with all the love given to the rest of the Big Ten East.

There are just enough dangerous games to keep the Spartans from getting back to 11 wins, even if this team might be better than the 2021 version.

The schedule is tougher.

Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Minnesota are all home games, but it’s asking a ton to take all three. Even if the Spartans can come close, at Washington – it’s a better team this year – at Michigan, at Penn State, at Maryland, at Illinois – yes, Illinois – are all going to be fights

Forget the record and what it might be. Michigan State will be better, the team will battle every week, and this is about to be a fun season.
