Thoughts following Wisconsin's victory over Michigan State in Big Ten title game

Note: Will have a full column posted later

- If Michigan State didn't win this game this year, you have to wonder if they will in the near future. Michigan is upcoming. Nebraska is going to get better, not worse. That's in the division. Overall in the Big Ten, Urban Meyer is coming to Ohio State. Blown opportunity by the Spartans.

- Yeah. I did tout Michigan State's Mark Dantonio over Michigan's Brady Hoke for Big Ten Coach of the Year, but his team did make key mistakes down the stretch, the biggest being the running into the kicker penalty. Not good. The facemask penalty, too.

- State's defense should have shut Wisconsin down. They clearly had the edge in quickness on defense. Just didn't play well.

- It was a good season for Michigan State, but just remaining on the same plateau. The Spartans had to win this game in order to take a true step forward. The Spartans didn't, and it was there for the taking. A disappointment.
