Michigan State’s Defensive Line is Just Ridiculously Good

jerel_worthy

It was truly sad that the Michigan St. community lost Bubba Smith this past year, because the current Michigan State defensive line is destroying opponents in the “Kill, Bubba Kill” spirit. Sure the unit was pretty solid last year, but this year they are even more dominant.

(BTW, you can bid on Bubba Smith‘s trophies and awards here)

In 2011 the State DL is stopping the run and rushing the passer in a fashion that would make Biggie Munn (“Biggie, Biggie, Biggie, can’t you see?”) and Duffy Daugherty proud.

Bid on Bubba Smith’s Colts, NFL, Michigan St. Trophies, Awards

This past August, we tragically lost a gentle giant in Bubba Smith. Perhaps the greatest Michigan State player ever. The “Kill, Bubba, Kill” chant is etched within Spartans and college football lore. Later, Smith made his mark through the Colts and the Police Academy movies.

And when you see the tremendous amount of awards and trophies left behind in his estate, you see just how much he accomplished in his short life.

The estate sale includes the 2007 Bronko Nagurski Legends Award, Senior Bowl trophy, signed passports and Pro Bowl trophies.

Undefeated Michigan State is having their best season in a generation, rekindling warm memories of the glory days under Biggie “somehow your words just hypnotize me” Munn and Duffy Daugherty. Back then, the East Lansing school won five national titles during a 15 year span (1951-1966).

The last national title winning team was known for their “Kill Bubba” chant, glorifying all-world defensive lineman Bubba Smith; probably the most iconic player in Spartan football history.

Today, the Spartans again have a stellar defensive line. What’s scary for the rest of the Big 10 is how good they are despite being so young. Led by sophomore tackle Jerel Worthy, a potential top ten pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, and sophomore rush end Tyler Hoover, this unit is very deep yet still a ways away from reaching the their peak.

All-Everything Linebacker Greg Jones said it best:
