Dynasty Update: Year One in the Books

Well, the first season of the Hayden Fox era is over at Minnesota State and the people of Screaming Eagle Nation have little to show for it. MSU finished 4-8 and dead last in the Big Ten Leaders division, with several of the losses coming in blowout form. Purdue shut State out through three quarters, Northwestern stole a win in overtime, and Michigan State crushed the upstart Eagles. Despite the low lights, however, there were a few positive things to build on as we head into 2012. The Eagles were a top-3 rushing team and the defense finished in the top-30; this led to improved recruiting and a slight bump in the overall team ratings. Fox definitely has the program headed in the right direction, but will he get them there before the fan base's patience runs out?
