I originally started this group of posts based on an article that I read on the SBNATION Big Ten Football blog called the Off Tackle Empire. They had done a survey of their writers to determine what each school thought about the other schools. Here is the link: B1G Social Network. The interesting thing that I noticed was that the only school we had a positive view of was Michigan State. I didn't necessarily agree with that, so I decided I would put together this group of polls to get a better idea of our opinion of the schools in the B1G.
So far the results have been what I expected. I will put together a summary when they are all finished. So this poll will work with the Michigan State Spartans. They have recently been a really consistently good basketball program along with a pretty good football program. I tend to think of them mostly as a basketball school, that does a good job of beating ND in football (along with Navy and Boston College). So, on to the poll: MSU
What is your opinion of the Michigan State Spartans?
