Linking Laconically Is Taking a Moment to Remember

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

We send off Lacey with a celebration.

The celebration of Lacey Holsworth's life was last night at the Breslin Center. It featured a bible reading from Travis Trice, a moment of silence dunk, and a 43-minute video that told the story of Lacey's life.  Here's what I think:

- There will now be a moment of silence dunk at my funeral.

- It was a fantastic way to say goodbye to someone who meant so much to the Spartan community.

- No matter if the tribute to Lacey on The Rock is painted is over, or when the next season starts, or the tenth season, or the fiftieth, the immediacy and intensity of the emotions felt last night will ensure Lacey is not forgotten.

Here's some links to kick off the weekend:

I wrote the MSU part of this. Note that the "STATE" part of Michigan State is not optional, and BTN needs to play the Korie Lucious game once every three months at a minimum.

There's an easy way to fix it - just send the worst teams down to the MAC after each year. Done and done.

NCAA President Mark Emmert went onto Twitter this morning to hold a Q&A. It went as well as you'd expect.
