Sunday night U2 takes the stage in Spartan Stadium, and many of us at or formerly of the blog (LVS, KJ, and myself specifically) will be there. I know the Irishmen may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I think we can all agree that it's a great showcase for MSU and East Lansing. Onto the links!

"We’ve had some open gyms and we’re looking good," Green said. "The recruits can't play with us until they’re officially on campus in the fall. We’ve got some good players. Our recruits are wings and forwards, not big guys. That’s OK with me. That’s all we need.
