Well thanks to the "five-o," I mean, Crimson Tide for that 2010 buzz kill. But fear not Sparta, it was a season to remember and added motivation for 2011.
To begin, five facts that put the 2010 season in review:
1. 11-win season (most in school history)
2. First Big Ten Championship since 1990
3. 16 All-Big Ten Conference Selections
4. Head Coach Mark Dantonio receives the 2010 Dave McClain Big Ten Coach of the Year Award
5. MLB Greg Jones receives All-American Honors
If you ask me, these facts equal a successful season and a lot to be proud of.
Sure a bowl win would have capped arguably the best season in school history, but baby steps; and next season should be even more exciting.
Now we turn the focus to the 2011 offseason and some New Year's Resolutions.
