The Michigan State football team has lost two games in a row, and to be quite frank, in brutal fashion. The Spartans have been outscored 73-35 combined in the past two contests to the Washington Huskies and Minnesota Golden Gophers. MSU never even threatened to win in either game.

Through four weeks, Michigan State is 2-2 with two blowout wins against inferior foes and two lopsided losses against opponents with a pulse. It’s been a sobering past couple of weeks. But this tough start to “Year 3” of the Mel Tucker era isn’t unprecedented. It’s actually all too familiar. Mark Dantonio actually suffered the same fate in his third year at MSU.

We’ve got a tricky one in College Park coming up — a faltering top-15 preseason team in MSU vs. a solid team known for faltering as the season goes on in Maryland. Potentially miserable weather. And a whole lot of question marks.

It’s clear that the running game is a key piece of Michigan State’s offense, whether it be wearing out the defense, creating more open looks for Thorne or simply sustaining momentum. However, the Spartans finished with just 38 yards on 14 attempts against Minnesota. The week before, MSU ran for just 42 yards on 29 carries at Washington. Under Head Coach Mel Tucker, the Spartans are 1-8 when the team finishes with under 100 rushing yards.

There’s no doubt Michigan State football is in a slump. After back-to-back losses to Washington and Minnesota, it’s clear the Spartans have some work to do at practice this week if they want to get back on track against Maryland on Saturday. A 2-2 record is not where the team likely saw itself after Head Coach Mel Tucker set some high expectations for the team pre-season. With the schedule only getting more intense from this point, MSU will need to turn it around this week if it still hopes to meet them.

Maryland suffered its first loss of the season last week and had two key offensive playmakers sidelined. Quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa and starting receiver Rakim Jarrett were both injured in a 34-27 loss at No. 4 Michigan and didn’t finish the game. Coach Mike Locksley on Tuesday wasn’t definitive about their status when Maryland (3-1, 0-1 Big Ten) hosts Michigan State (2-2, 0-1) on Saturday.

Bethea remains the only defensive player to outright win the Big Ten Chicago Tribune Silver Trophy as its most valuable player without playing on a conference championship team.

This is quite literally the smallest roster Tom Izzo has ever had. He has decided not to utilize all of his open scholarships in order to ensure his team is tightly-knit. There’s no choice but for everyone to be close, warm, personal friends. And that’s a good thing. Izzo’s best teams have played together for years and gelled at an extensive level — go back and look at the 2000 national champs and the 2009 Final Four team.

Everything Mel Tucker wants Michigan State’s run game to be, he saw in Minnesota while preparing for the Golden Gophers a week ago. “They’re gonna run inside zone and stretch, and you just gotta stop ‘em,” Tucker said five days before PJ Fleck’s squad came to Spartan Stadium. “… (Running back Mohamed Ibrahim) runs the ball the way you’re supposed to run the rock. I’m very impressed with the way they play the game and the way they run the football. … Yep, I love it.”
