Quote of the game:
“The game’s beating us right now.” – MSU head coach John Cohen
Song to describe game: He Stopped Loving Her Today by George Jones – Since the game didn’t shake out in MSU’s favor, I figured sad love song was in order. There aren’t many like this one.
What it means: MSU has a lot to figure out, but the season is young. This week features six games and the Bulldogs will have a chance to right all the wrongs.
