Happy Halloween. I'll be stepping out with Harry Potter and Wolverine (the mutant superhero, calm down) in a little while, but first, reviews are in from MSU fans on the trip to Lincoln. I've yet to hear a negative comment.
This is Denny Schwarze in for Joe. I was at the Michigan State men's basketball exhibition win over Ferris State on Sunday afternoon and here's a few thoughts that I took away from the game today.
MSU's first exhibition starts in a few minutes and Denny Schwarze has a look at Austin Thornton to advance it.
Wow, 255 comments, figured I should throw up a new post.
How far apart are MSU's defense and offense right now? The Spartans are stuffing the Cornhuskers with a third-string walk-on at Star linebacker. And they have 84 yards of total offense even though the line is getting push and giving Kirk Cousins time to throw.
Chris Norman has a shoulder injury and will be replaced at the Star by Steve Gardiner if he can't go today.
Hello from Lincoln and hello to Steven M. Sipple of the Lincoln Journal-Star, who reports and columnizes on the sports entity that comes first, second and third in this state -- Cornhuskers football. Here's our Q&A:
This was not planned, but we have an interesting MSU-Nebraska dynamic in the pages of the LSJ today. Denny Schwarze tells us about little-known Kyler Elsworth -- MSU's next big walk-on, one of the key performers against Wisconsin and a guy who could be wrestling on scholarship elsewhere. Meanwhile, one of the greatest coaches in college football history told me yesterday how he nearly became MSU's coach in 1999.
