Spartans Make a Splash with Seven Letters of Intent

In a relatively quiet offseason so far for Michigan State baseball, the Spartans made some noise with the signings of seven highly regarded prospects for the 2015-2016 year.  These seven players signed to National Letters of Intent fill a need the Spartans will have following this season according to head coach Jake Boss.

“This is another talented class that addresses the needs we will have going into the 2015-2016 year and, most importantly, six young men are from the Midwest, with four calling the state of Michigan home,” Boss said. “All seven of these student-athletes will represent Michigan State in a positive way moving forward, and we are thrilled to call them Spartans.” Read More…

One more regular-season game for the Michigan State Spartans football team as they head into Happy Valley as 13-point favorites over Penn State on Saturday afternoon. A win by any means takes Dantonio’s squad to a praiseworthy 10-2, but can the crew cover the spread and establish their right to a Selection Committee Bowl for this holiday season?

Pistons are Thirteen Games In, Still Struggling to Find Stride

Detroit Pistons first round draft pick Spencer Dinwiddie has only played in two games this season for a measly 22 minutes total and two points. In what arguably should be Andre Drummond’s best season so far, last season’s league runner-up in field goal percentage and in rebounds has been putting up poor numbers. The squad as a whole is ranked 27th in scoring and eighth for turnovers.

If head coach Stan Van Gundy wants to continue his perfect playoff attendance this year, the Pistons need to improve quick before a losing atmosphere once again sets in and the franchise loses hope. Read More…

No Dawson, No Ellis, No Problem for Spartans
