I am not trying to bash. Somehow Michigan can take a class of 28 now. Some are saying 29.

One of the more unexplainable facts of the recruiting world.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Naw, I know, I'm just laughing at the whole situation. I could probably come up with 8-12 guys who have either been constantly injured or buried on the depth chart; no different than most of the programs in the country. Not going to spin it any other way that it's what every major squad deals with. MSU had very little attrition in '10 and '11; looks like certain positions have too much build up.
MSU's LB depth is crazy deep
Didn't you guys say the same about the rest of your football team last year after losing everyone?
Wisky coaches are bailing left and right.

A DUI is about the tamest thing to come out of the MSU football program.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
It's too bad the old thread is toast. "MSU has crazy depth at OL. Burkland and Treadwell could start at a lot of other schools. Maxwell will easily step in. We know this because he's good in practice. Mumphrey and Fowler will easily step in for Cunningham and Martin."
Can Bielema just take the entire university down to Arkansas with him?
The depth at LB is higher than anywhere else on the team.
Safety depth is also very high.
Think about how bad the OL would have been this year without so much depth; it would have been inappropriate to show to children.

laconophilia is everywhere...
Looks like MSU's 2013 class could be making some pretty significant additions during the month of January...
Jan 18 could be monster day
I just looked up Madison, Wisconsin on google maps. I never knew it was in Arkansas...
There just isn't that much of a difference between a 4-star and a 3-star. These sites are a pathetic joke. They are a general guide and nothing more. If they could accurately rate these kids, they'd be on the recruiting trail, not working for some 2 bit production where extreme fans come to rip on each other.
I know we will discuss the rosters this winter/spring/summer, but Michigan's LBs are up there with MSU's, imo. No seniors in the 2-deep next year, I believe.
Bolden will make a run at WLB or MLB,
Jenkins-Stone should be in the 2-deep, but he will be pushed by the incoming freshmen McCray and Gedeon.
No seniors in the group, with Morgan and Ryan being Juniors, Ross, Bolden, and Jenkins-Stone Sophs.
I left off Ringer, not sure where he will be recovering from his knee injury.
Is Spartan nation concerned at all about their bball team yet? We are already 2 months into the season and MSU is still having trouble with teams like 5 loss BGSU. They're running out of time to get the kinks out before they go up against the gauntlet of Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Minnesota, and Indiana.

were Morgan and Ross starters this year?
most of the games Mrgan started but Ross started a few
This post was edited by msucantmakebcs 16 months ago
Morgan started all 10 games he played in, led the team in tackles per game average.
Ross started the 2 games that Morgan missed, played in every game.
In terms of overall depth?
Sure. Michigan returns 4 guys who had quality playing time last year, 5 if you include Cam Gordon who may or may not come back for a fifth year. After that, it is just numbers. (Poole, RJS, Ringer, McCray, Gedeon)
Yea, MSU returns 3 (Allen, Bullough and Jones), plus Ed Davis who's seen about as much time as Tai Jones did last year. #s are there for MSU as well.
I'd put both groups in the top 3-4 in the conference going into next year. Pretty surprised at how bad tOSU's LBs were the past few years; Shazier is legit, everyone else is a lot of "meh". PSU loses a bunch. Wisky's Taylor and Borland are good. Think there's a pretty big drop-off after that; Nebraska needs a MAJOR LB upgrade if they're going to field a good D in this conf.
