Michigan State isn't having the year most were expecting. The Spartans are just 4-3 through seven games. Back-to-back blowout losses to Ohio State and Wisconsin have folks worried about the trajectory of the program.

It's in times like these that players want to transfer to a new school. The NCAA transfer portal has provided that option.

As of Thursday morning, the Spartans' 5th player this season has entered his name in the portal. This time, wide receiver Cam Chambers is the latest wanting to transfer.

Chambers is Michigan State's 4th offensive player to transfer this season. Others include: receiver Weston Bridges, and running backs Connor Heyward and La'Darius Jefferson. Linebacker Brandon Bouyer-Randle has also opted to transfer.

The Spartans' four offensive player transfers may be due to the team's struggles on that side of the ball. Michigan State has been abysmal in all aspects on offense.

MSU's offense averages just 357.4 yards per game which ranks 100th in the nation. Scoring-wise, the team is averaging 23.9 points per game, good for 98th overall.

Simply put, the Michigan State offense just isn't having fun. There's little creativity and not enough fire-power.

If the Spartans can't get things figured out, more offensive players might be itching to leave town.
