Michigan State suffered an embarrassing 38-0 loss to No. 8 Wisconsin on Saturday afternoon. For a program and head coach that are so highly regarded, the Spartans simply weren’t competitive and looked completely outmatched.
As a result, Colin Cowherd called out MSU and Mark Dantonio on Twitter.
Check out what he had to say below.
Michigan State gets smoked more than it should for a “good” program w a supposedly “good coach”

Ouch. But he may have a point.
Dantonio is regarded as one of the top coaches in college football. But he has yet to help Michigan State fix its offensive woes.
In one of the more confusing moves this off-season, Dantonio decided to retain his offensive staff. But he assigned them all to different roles.
It clearly hasn’t worked.
Michigan State ranks near the bottom of all major offensive statistical categories in the nation. Granted, the Spartans have played several very good defenses so far this season including Wisconsin’s and Ohio State’s.
The Spartans managed to score just 10 points combined in those two games.
Michigan State needs two more wins to go bowling this postseason. But it won’t be easy. The Spartans still have tough contests vs. Michigan and Penn State.
Dantonio needs to figure out his team’s offensive issues if they hope to get back to contending.
