Interesting questions from a couple of fans about this weekend's game in East Lansing. Perhaps, you'll find the answers compelling. Perhaps not:
John (Michigan): Hey Brian, after Michigan State's dismal performance Saturday, and Ohio State's struggles as well; how does each team come out on top? Does OSU once again use Braxton as their crutch and MSU use Le'Veon? Or by some miracle will each team be able to find someone else on their offense who can ease the workload?
Brian Bennett: Pretty simple for Michigan State: Defense has to dominate, and the receivers have to play their best game of the season. Ohio State has to load up against the run and make Maxwell beat them, and Braxton will have to Braxton, with some help from the running game.
Jared (Work): Teams have been running quick release offenses against the OSU defense to negate the d-line. MSU runs a pro-set. Could this be the week we see the d-line get to show what they can really do against a pro-style offense?
Brian Bennett: Ohio State really seems more suited to go against a run-first, pro style offense with that big defensive line. The linebackers and safeties haven't been great tackling in space, and the Spartans aren't going to spread you out. Seems like a good matchup for a Buckeyes D that has underperformed.
ghostofsparta (Sparta): Hey Brian I was wondering what you thought of Dantonio's post game comments. I know AR was kind of pissed about it based on his twitter comments. But you have to realize that MSU sucked for 3 and a half quarters against an EMU team that has allowed 40 Points per game. Dantonio wasnt too pleased about it and the questions were kind of generic. So the question is, are the comments a big deal like some make it out to be?
Brian Bennett: I thought it was childish and unprofessional. It's not about the media's questions -- coaches have a responsibility to explain what happened to the thousands and thousands of fans who follow their program and support it financially. Dantonio is better than that and is usually pretty good with the media. There was no reason for him to act like Lane Kiffin.
