Prior to the 2015 season, the Michigan State Spartans certainly weren’t expected to go 12-1, win the Big Ten championship, and be playing in the College Football Playoff. They have exceeded all expectations this year and they have a chance to win their first national championship since 1966.
Spartan fans certainly aren’t very happy with the way they were talked about before the season began. One fan took all the media criticism from the beginning of the season and made a hype video for the team to use as motivation for the CFP next week.
It is pretty unlikely that the Spartans will come into this came slacking off. Head coach Mark Dantonio will have his team ready for Alabama next week and you can be sure to see a great effort from them.
If any of the players take the criticism to heart, they will certainly be motivated to face off in the Cotton Bowl. They take the field against the Crimson Tide on Thursday, December 31 at 8 p.m. EST on ESPN.
