Next week Michigan plays MSU in East Lansing, it will be hostile, it will be loud, and it will be tough. Although MSU have lost 3 games, they will very fired up next week. It will also be Forcier's first away game, and although he says he doesn't get nervous, I'm sure the atmosphere might shake him a bit at the start. Michigan will need to score some TD's early to quiet the crowd and deflate the MSU players morale.
Michigan have already beaten last years win total, and could even start 5-0, which would be great, but the defense has to be solid next week.
On to recruiting now, and will some Michigan State recruits be starting to ask questions about the Spartans after they start 1-3. This could be the defining game of their season, starting 1-4 is unthinkable for team that had such high hopes preseason. One of the best recruits in the state of Michigan is defensive end/linebacker William Gholston. The MSU commit stated a couple of months back that he might still visit some other schools, to make sure he made the right choice. Stealing Gholston away from the Spartans would be unbelievable for Rich Rod and co. A win on Saturday could help?
