Considering we're less than a week and a half away from the start of football season, it's hard to even think about anything else. However, Tom Izzo got some good news today, as the NCAA granted Bryn Forbes his transfer waiver so the sharpshooting guard can play right away for MSU this season. With Kenny Kaminski's departure, that is absolutely huge news for the Spartans' and their perimeter attack.

Anyway, back to football.
