Thoughts halftime Ohio State, MSU

The Spartans have played an excellent game so far. I'm sure a lot of MSU fans are feeling a little uneasy because of the long drives by the Buckeyes, but Braxton Miller is going to do those type of things. What's the saying? You can't stop him; You can only hope to contain him. Michigan State has contained him. State is still leading 17-10. It's not as bad as it seems. It's actually good.
- The Spartans didn't just sit back and let the Buckeyes self-destruct. They took it to Ohio State. I loved the play calls for the deep passes. It's classic football. And it kicked OSU when it was down.
- Can Urban Meyer look any more uptight on the sidelines? His team is taking on his demeanor at times tonight.
- It's unbelievable how Michigan State's defense does close on ball carriers in the open field. Even on Ohio State's scoring drives, you could see it. Miller would have scored on his long run against any other defense. Cory Brown would have scored on an earlier catch-and-run.
- Miller is a terrific player and not a bad thrower, but I think Connor Cook is the better passer. It's water under the bridge now, but you have to wonder why MSU's coaching staff didn't see it earlier.
