Freshman safety Jaden Mangham is used to adjusting to things on the fly. He made arguably one of the biggest life transitions earlier than expected when cut his senior year of high school short in order to enroll at Michigan State in January. In the midst of the team’s injury plagued season, Mangham’s hard work paid off when he was selected to make his first career start last week against Maryland.

The Spartans have lost three straight games and sit at 2-3 on the season and 0-2 in conference play while the Buckeyes are 5-0 and 2-0 in league action. This is not an ideal matchup for a team that can’t seem to score or defend. But miracles do happen just like the 1998 Spartans who upset No. 1 Ohio State on the road. Tucker was actually a grad assistant for that team so here’s to hoping he can conjure some of that magic.

Heading into the season, the depth chart for MSU’s running back room seemed somewhat clear: redshirt sophomore Jalen Berger and fifth-year senior Jarek Broussard would split a vast majority of the carries. Saturday afternoon, Collins finished with two more yards than Berger on four fewer carries. Broussard had only three rushing attempts.

Jayden Reed leaped for the pass from Payton Thorne, crashed hard to the Spartan Stadium turf and kept sliding. Right into the corner of a metal bench. The result: a cut that was “pretty deep,” one of the more freak injuries in a year full of them for the Michigan State football wide receiver.

Spartans in the NFL: Week 4

3 days ago

As Michigan State looks to shore up a struggling and injury-riddled defense, personnel changes continue to be made. The latest came with two changes to the starting secondary in last week’s 27-13 loss at Maryland as the Spartans (2-3, 0-2 Big Ten) dropped their third straight game. Angelo Grose moved from safety to nickelback and that led to true freshman safety Jaden Mangham making his first career start.

“The most important thing is what we do next,” Tucker said Monday. “Anger, frustration, woulda-coulda-shoulda — all those things — they don’t really help you move forward, because it’s all about what we have to do right now. So you learn from the past, whether it’s good or bad, and you own it.”

With a 27-13 defeat at Maryland, the Spartans have dropped three straight and there are questions about the team’s confidence. “I don’t sense any negativity but obviously when you lose three games in a row, it tests your character and our guys have tremendous character,” coach Mel Tucker said after the game. “That’s what they’ve displayed so far. I don’t expect it to be any different.”

Michigan State football is standing on a cliff. After two losses — in which the Spartans got bullied by Washington and Minnesota — all of the offseason hype and hope could disappear into the abyss. A three-game stretch — Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Michigan — which could have MSU staring at staying at home this winter (after going to a New Year’s Six bowl game last season) awaits.

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.
