Three Gopher Questions

  1. Rushing defense (again)? -the weekly question of can we stop the run? LLe'Veon Bell is almost the best back in the conference and accounts for a lot of MSU's offense. Can we slow him down?
  2. Will MarQueis Gray be a bigger part of the offense? - We saw a couple plays last week with Gray getting the ball after being teased that we'd see it more often after the switch to Philip Nelson. Well, we have nothing to lose, let's open up the playbook.
  3. So, will we open up that playbook? - I don't mean with fake punts that everyone sees coming, I mean throwing the ball around a little and letting the offense have a bit of fun. Michigan State has probably the best defense in the Big Ten, so let's open it up and see if we can move the ball on them.
