Michigan State Spartans Should Enter Conference Play With Just One Loss
There is really only one team that is capable of pulling off an upset against the Spartans now and until then and that is the Texas Longhorns. Texas may have a good record at 9-1, but it has yet to play a ranked opponent, which means it has yet to beat a ranked opponent. Still, I am sure the Longhorns will have a much better season than last year.
The Spartans are still one of the most talented and experienced teams in college basketball and they should still be a favorite to earn a No. 1 seed in the 2014 NCAA Tournament.
Regardless, this team should enter Big Ten play with an 11-1 record. It will then open up conference play against Penn State, which should be a rather easy game for the Big Ten’s best team. However, it will get much tougher after that. The Spartans will then play Indiana, Ohio State and Minnesota in back-to-back-to-back games.
This conference may currently have three teams ranked in the top five, but Michigan State is arguably the best one and it would not be a surprise if it won the title this year. Still, it will not be easy as Wisconsin and Ohio State are just as talented as anyone. Plus, I am sure Michigan will eventually show up this season and Iowa should not be counted out.
