Ohio State is the reigning national champion, and Alabama is the hands-down most successful college football program over the past decade. But according to Fox Sports' Joel Klatt, Michigan State is the best program in college football right now. Klatt joined Colin Cowherd Thursday and told listeners that he voted the Spartans No. 1 in the country because he thinks they've "earned" it. He also praised the job that head coach Mark Dantonio has done in East Lansing.
We imagine that this won't go over very well in Columbus, Tuscaloosa, and a few other big college football towns.
Michigan State has certainly had a stellar run, posting a 24-3 run over the last two years. But the Spartans might need to win a national title before others start to agree with Klatt.
