“Starless MSU” or “The bizzare stats of Michigan State”

I’m being intentionally random with my posts now becuase I’ve been so heavy of late. I needed a break. I’m sure I’ll be back in the zone after this weekend.

Anyway, check out Michigan State’s football stats. They are weird.

Their top passer is Drew Stanton. He’s passed for 291 yards but has no touchdown passes and two interceptions. He also happens to be their top rusher, gaining 226 yards on only 22 carries (10+ average). And he’s found the end zone THREE times on the ground.

But they have TWO OTHER quarterbacks who’ve thrown for over 200 yards this year and they have TWO OTHER rushers who’ve topped 200 so far.

So, in summary, they have three quarterbacks who have nearly identical passing stats and three runners (one of which is a quarterback) who have very similar stats. And their top quarterback has no touchdown passes but three rushing touchdowns.

MSU’s reciever situation is pretty normal.

What does this all mean? They have no stars.
