MWiatrak2077 10 Even under the best Dantonio teams, the Spartans never got flashy. Whether it was a 27-23 upset of #12 Michigan @Ann Arbor, or a 24-21 brawl against 2-10 Purdue (this happened in the same season), Michigan State just finds ways to win. They're gritty, they're disciplined, they may not have the flashy talent composites, but damn if they're not well-coached, organized, poignant, and clutch. So did the Spartans just find a way to win yesterday? No. They absolutely destroyed Akron. That was not just a "just get by" type win, that was a dominant, flashy, disciplined win. After a weirdly close matchup against Western Michigan last week, the Spartans took it upon themselves to rid any doubts by shutting out an FBS opponent 52-0. You can say, "yeah but this is Akron", and that's true, but MSU rarely makes statements like this. Their only hiccup was an exceptionally lousy performance from QB Payton Thorne, whom threw 0 TDs, 2 INTs, and 212 yards. In spite of this, they managed 500 yards of offense, 6 rushing TDs, and doubled Akron in first-downs (32-14). I won't comment on whether the Spartans are real or not, as their two upcoming games @Washington and v. Minnesota will do all the talking on where they stand this season, - but, aside for some QB September rust, I don't think you could've asked for a better start.

bretticus33 14 The MSU rushing attack was wonderful. Payton Thorne was far from it. MSU has a strong enough ground game and defense to make some noise in the Big 10, but what does Sparty do about their QB situation because Thorne isn't cutting it.

Our-Gardian-Angel 14 Michigan State did what they should have done to a MAC basement dweller. Not much to see here. A primetime game at Washington next week is obviously a much better measuring stick. (Week 2: Michigan State 52, Akron 0; Record: 2-0)

PSUMediaPA 12 A clean shutout and blowout of Akron despite the Zips getting down the field a few times. The Washington road game will be their first true test.
