I always believe Sparty when I see it.
I disagree, I dont see any reason to believe they are better in 2012 than in 2011. They simply will not replace Martin on the Defensive side this season. They have some talent that came in, but its not going to replace what Martin brought to the trenches, not this season. They are weaker at WR as well.
They they might not be much worse this season, but they were the benificiaries of some good breaks to have the season they did in 2011. IMO that was an 8-4 type team last year, and are probably looking at 8-4, 9-3 this season.
I dont know that I would have Nebraska ahead of them but I certainly have MSU as the better team again this year.
