Dan Roushar says he feels 'terrible' for Michigan State fans

Gregory Shamus

A disappointing performance by Michigan State's offense this season has left coordinator Dan Roushar apologizing to fans and supporters of the program.

Michigan St. Spartans offensive coordinator Dan Roushar apologized to fans and others who support the program on Monday for the team's miserable offensive performance this season, according to Diamond Leung of MLive. The Spartans are 5-6 this season despite having the 10th-best scoring defense in the nation.

"You feel awfully bad for the kids. You feel terrible for our Spartan Nation. Certainly it isn’t the way we drew it up," Roushar said. "I feel awful for our kids. I feel awful for the people that follow us and certainly feel bad for our fans and the support that we get."

Michigan State's points per game average of 19.7 is currently 108th in the nation, behind teams such as Tulane (2-9), Akron (1-10), Army (2-9) and Boston College (2-9).

While the team has leading rusher Le'Veon Bell, who has rushed for 1,382 yards, the Spartans are just 80th in the nation in rushing because the rest of the team has ran the ball for just 159 yards on 91 carries this season, an average of 1.7 yards per attempt.
