"Michigan State men’s basketball freshman forward Kenny Kaminski underwent successful surgery on his right shoulder on Sept. 7 to repair a torn labrum. He will be out of action 4-6 months."

We're reporting in tomorrow's Blade that former Ohio State defensive lineman and Whitmer standout Kenny Hayes is transferring to Toledo.

Per the Toledo Blade. That would make this earlier report incorrect. It's possible he planned on going to MSU, but Mark Dantonio wouldn't answer a question about Hayes earlier this week.

I thought I'd fanshot this because it isn't technically a fanpost and well....it might be considered spamming. I'm trying to do the whole twitter thing again especially with football season starting. Post your names so I can start following some rational/insightful/funny Spartans. @RickTBMartel

37. The combined average minutes played per game of Michigan State's Derrick Nix and Adreian Payne last season. Expect that number to increase with Draymond Green gone, and for the Spartan duo to make up one of the most formidable frontcourts in the country.

The Michigan State defense has made tremendous strides in recent years under coordinator Pat Narduzzi. It is difficult to even elaborate much on how they were good or what made them good in 2011 -- they were simply strong at just about everything. The Spartans have improved from 63rd in Def. F/+ in 2009, to 42nd in 2010, to 13th in 2011. Recruiting has certainly improved in this time as well (Gholston was a five-star get, while players like strong safety Isaiah Lewis, and starting linebackers Max Bullough and Chris Norman were four-star recruits), and that certainly doesn't hurt. But while tackle is a concern, this should still very much be a Top 20 defense -- a unit that can win games if the offense meets a minimum standard.

Coaches love Green because he is the embodiment of every coaching cliché about ‘hard work trumping talent’ out there. He wasn’t originally a primary recruiting target of Michigan State. He wasn’t supposed to be a good perimeter shooter, but he made 37 and 39 percent of his 3-pointers his final two years of college. He wasn’t supposed to be an elite college talent, but arguably no college player had a greater statistical impact on his team than Green this past season. He wasn’t supposed to be a NBA player, but here we are.

Bo Ryan is making $2.1 million per year, a rate that should demand he figures out how to successfully operate his program in spite of a teenager changing his mind. Wisconsin basketball is not going to crumble because it might have to face off against a former player one day.

On Nov. 11 in San Diego, North Carolina and Michigan State tipped off the season aboard the USS Carl Vinson; the same two teams will end it in New Orleans, where they will meet for the title.....The Spartans can't match North Carolina in lottery picks, but they can go toe-to-toe in toughness, Coach Izzo earns his second title, 76-74
