Michigan State football player sentenced in Aspen bar fight | AspenTimes.com Brian Linthicum has to do a year of probation, can't drink "excessive amounts of alcohol" (whatever that means), and has 40 hours of community service along with anger management and alcohol education classes. Max Bullough's sentencing is next week, and I'm guessing he'll get less than Linthicum as Bullough wasn't charged with third-degree assault, merely being a minor in possession and fleeing the police.
The senior quarterback — who is trying to bring the ’90s phrase "Boo Ya!" back to the football field — generally was agreed upon as the offense’s biggest smack talker.

MBB: Big Ten Announces Home and Away Designations for Big Ten/ACC Challenge Michigan State will play their Challenge game at home, and I'd expect it to be in the Breslin Center. Assuming it is (and I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't be) it'll be the first Big Ten/ACC challenge game in East Lansing since 2007, when the 10th ranked Spartans beat 24th ranked N.C. State 81-58.
Notes from Michigan State - Big Ten Blog - ESPN Adam Rittenberg came to East Lansing yesterday, and one of the most interesting quotes came from -- who else --
Michigan State had several successful plays that it didn't run very often. "We're working on trying to get those plays involved more in our offense," Cousins said. "If we're so successful at them, why are we not doing them two or three times a game rather than once every two games?"
