The 2016 Michigan State Football defense has the chance to be special. Really special. If those sentiments are to be reached the Spartan linebackers are sure to lead it. Led by one of the best linebackers in the B1G in Riley Bullough, the MSU first string is rounded out by Chris "Spartan Psycho" Frey and Jon Reschke. After the starters MSU is still loaded with young men like Andrew Dowell, Byron Bullough, Shane Jones, Tyriq Thompson, newcomer Joe Bachie and Ed Davis is still in hot pursuit of a 6th year of NCAA eligibility. They are tough.
That is why when Big Ten writer Tom Dienhart rated the Big Ten LB's he had MSU at the top.
