Michigan State continues to be recognized on the various preseason watch lists that just make all of us football season would start already, but it's more than just the football players getting the love today. CBS Sports ranked the top sports schools from the past year, and MSU finished second behind only Stanford (We'll take the Rose Bowl, thank you very much.). People will tell something like this means next to nothing, and they would be absolutely right. But while it doesn't matter as much as a Big Ten title or a deep run in the NCAA tournament, it's still an indication of how complete MSU athletics is at this point.
Like all rankings, the CBS Sports one has its flaws, but Izzo's comments are good, as usual.
I love that he picked two Spartans as the best offensive linemen he's faced ... and two more as the best running backs.
Terry's performance in the spring was exciting and worrisome. Don't want to see the future get hurt playing receiver.
You know Dantonio has had some special players when Le'Veon Bell doesn't even make the list.
Nothing we haven't read before, really, but I don't care.
The Ray Guy award should complement the Heisman on Sadler's trophy shelf nicely.
My favorite Spartan I never got to see play live.
