Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has wasted no time at all in affirming that 2012 NFL Draft pick Robert Griffin III, is the team’s starting quarterback, “period.”

The Redskins wrapped up their rookie minicamp over the weekend by putting the Heisman Trophy winner and number-2 overall pick as the top QB on the depth chart.

Griffin is ahead of fourth-round pick Kirk Cousins and last year’s starter, Rex Grossman. The latter two will battle for second and third string spots.

RG3 picked up several other awards his final season at Baylor in 2011, was a concensus All-American, 1st team All-Big 12, Davey O’Brien Award and the Manning Award.

MICHIGAN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes ready for Cousins & Cunningham


QB Kirk Cousins

The Big Ten Conference season begins this coming Saturday, as the Michigan State Spartans travel to Columbus, Ohio for a 3:30 p.m. contest on ABC-TV in Ohio Stadium.

Both teams survived the pre-conference schedule with 3-1 records.

The October 1 game marks the 40th meeting between Michigan State and Ohio State. The Buckeyes lead the series 27-12, including a 13-7 record in games played in Columbus. The Buckeyes have won seven in a row and 12 of the last 14 meetings. The Spartans last win in the series came on November 6, 1999, 23-7 in Spartan Stadium. The last MSU win in Columbus came over the #1 ranked Buckeyes on November 7, 1998, 28-24.

The top two players getting the ink for Michigan State is QB Kirk Cousins and WR B.J. Cunningham.

Fifth-year senior Kirk Cousins, now in his third season as the Spartans starting quarterback, has a chance to win more football games than any other signal-caller in Michigan State history. Cousins has compiled a 19-10 record for a .655 winning percentage in 29 career starts. A school record 21 career wins is held by Jeff Smoker, (2000-03). His career winning percentage (eighth) and career wins (11th) rank among all active NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision quaterbacks.

Fifth-year senior B.J. Cunningham, a native of Westerville, Ohio, which is a suburb in North Columbus, leads the Big Ten in both receptions (7.3 per game) and receiving yards (107.0 per game).

WR B.J. Cunningham

In addition, Cunningham ranks among the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision Top 20 in both stat categories: tied for 14th in receptions and tied for 16th in receiving yards. Cunningham leads the team in receptions (29), receiving yards (428) and 20-yard receptions (6). Nineteen of his 29 catches (66 percent) have resulted in either a touchdown or a first down. Cunningham has caught at least one pass in 38 straight regular-season games, which ties him for the fourth-longest active streak in the NCAA FBS.


* Michigan State is a crowd favorite around college football. The Spartans have ranked among the NCAA’s top 25 in attendance each of the last 55 years, including a #19 ranking in 2010, averaging 73,556 fans per game. The Spartans rank number-17 in the NCAA in total attendance as 514,894 fans went through the turnstiles for seven home games.

* The Magic number is 24 points for Michigan State. Since 1990, the Spartans are 117-32-1 for a winning percentage of .783 when it scores at least 24 points and 18-86-1 (.176) when it scores fewer than 24 points. During that 22 year history, MSU has compiled an overall record of 135-118-2 (.533).

#17 Michigan State beats “Big Brother #18 Michigan for third year in a row, 34-17

The Michigan State Spartans under head coach Mark Dantonio, accomplished something Saturday afternoon what no other team at the East Lansing school has done in 47 years; beat their “Big Brothers” from Ann Arbor, the Michigan Wolverines.

The University of Michigan has long considered Michigan State their “little brothers” especially in football.

But since Mark Dantonio took the job after leaving the University of Cincinnati, the Spartans have been competitive and finally took control of the series in 2008.

Saturday’s 34-17 win in venerable Michigan Stadium was even sweeter.

Head coach Mark Dantonio returned to the Spartans after missing the last two weeks following his heart attack he suffered September 18 after the Notre Dame game. He viewed the game from the press box while listening in on the headset.

Michigan State now 6-0, 2-0 in the Big Ten Conference have a clear path to at least a share of the Big Ten championship. They beat Wisconsin last week and don’t have to play Ohio State. The only game that could trip them up is at Iowa on October 30.

Saturday’s game between the Spartans and the Wolverines had both teams coming in undefeated for the first time since 1999.

Wolverines quarterback Denard Robinson had a tough day, throwing three interceptions and having his longest run of only 16 yards. He had not faced a defense as talented and disciplined as the Spartans, who kept a couple of spies around the line of scrimmage to watch him.

The Spartans offensive unit, led by Groveport-Madison graduate Le’Veon Bell, ran for 173 yards on 25 carries. Quarterback Kirk Cousins was unstoppable completing 16 0f 21 passes for 232 yards. Michigan State did not have a turnover.
