New hope for Michigan State football and Big Ten

When the Big Ten decided to sit out this season due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all B1G fans felt a punch to the stomach. No college football for any of our teams? No College GameDay on Saturday morning at a Big Ten campus? That sounded dreadful.

Well, after suffering through that news there may be a bit of hope for Big Ten football, according to Yahoo Sports college football reporter Pete Thamel.

Although it is still just a discussion, this is the brightest suggestion of a return of Big Ten football since the decision to cancel.

As a Michigan State football fan, I am crossing my fingers that things pan out and the Spartans play some semblance of a season. Spartan nation is shaking with excitement to see the changes new head coach Mel Tucker brings to the field.

Crisp fall Saturdays wouldn’t be the same without football even though we may not hear the chants of “Go white, go green” at Spartan Stadium. Most assured, we all are hoping the chancellors and presidents decide a return to the gridiron is feasible.

Where will that have Michigan State start, I am not sure. If they decide to stick to the same in-conference schedule and start at Week 1, the Spartans would have their first game at home against Minnesota. Sparty hasn’t faced up against the Gophers since 2017 where the Spartans won 30-27. Minnesota has become a much better team since PJ Fleck’s first year.

We need all the hope we can to get Big Ten football back, so please have your fingers crossed and your rabbits foot near by. And always remember, Go Green!
