The Michigan State Spartans (3-2, 0-1 in the Big Ten) lost by one point to the Ohio State Buckeyes last Saturday, 17-16, making wide receiver Bennie Fowler's crucial drop all the more impactful.
It's something the junior pass-catcher acknowledged following the defeat, according to a report by Diamond Leung of MLive.com:
"I think that drop is unacceptable. Drops are never acceptable."
Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio responded this week as well, according to the report, placing freshman wideout Aaron Burbridge ahead of Fowler on the team's depth chart going into Saturday's road contest against the Indiana Hoosiers (2-2, 0-1 in the Big Ten).
"In the end, the best players will continue to play and resurface," Dantonio said in the article. "We'll see how his practice and everything else goes. Have an opportunity to make a play, you have to make them at some point."
Fowler finished the game against the Buckeyes with two catches for 46 yards.
