Michigan State Football 19-16 Over Maryland Terrapins Official Game Thread

Hondo S. Carpenter

Spartan Stadium

East Lansing, MI

The Michigan State Spartan Football disastrous 2019 season will thankfully come to a regular-season end today. The Spartans look to get to 6-6 so they become bowl eligible for the 12th time in Mark Dantonio’s 13 seasons at Michigan State. A loss would make it only the second time in the Dantonio tenure (2016) that they failed to make a bowl.

The Terrapins are depleted by a less than stellar roster and have played with as many as four different QB’s this season. While the Terrapins certainly are in the midst of a rebuilding time, the Spartans should be on cruise control in Dantonio’s 13th season.

With a win, the Spartans will probably spend the bowl season not on a sandy beach, but in the Motor City. The Quick Lane Bowl is played on December 26, 2019, at 8 PM ET at Ford Field in Detroit. That game can be seen on ESPN.

Lombardi, Day and Thirne should all transfer. If they can't play or the won't play them and keep what we got.

Lewerke just threw a second interception. I don’t understand why we are helping them. We need all the help we can get including a different QB

This coaching staff better lead the next run with someone besides Lewerke

Hondo you said the stands are empty well if we don’t do something whoever is there will leave at the half. That’ll be discouraging...

Not much to say about this game. Just an ugly game with two bad teams.

There's a lot of question marks on this roster moving forward, but I don't think one of them is at WR. White should take another step next year and there's a lot to like with Mosley and Barnett.
