Michigan State probably never had a realistic shot to win last night's football game. As their head coach Mark Dantonio put it afterwards, once the Spartans were forced to rely on their passing game and the Ohio State defensive line could just pin their ears back and go nuts, the game was pretty much over.
But it took a quarter or so to get to that point, and it was interesting to watch Ryan Day and company figure out the Michigan State defense. The cool thing about this team offensively is that they never stop trying to find what will work, and once they do they hammer it into the brainpans of their opponents until a half dozen or so touchdowns have been scored.
It is also extremely fun to watch.
