I'm not totally sure why but the Big Ten Network has been releasing highlight films of football seasons from long, long ago this week. Luckily, 1952 was a great year for Michigan State. The Spartans went undefeated and "earned recognition as the nation's No. 1 team" A.K.A. national champions.
It's about to start all over again on Friday.
They picked a great game to highlight.
It's an interesting analogy, but the analysts over at CBS Sports say Michigan State basketball will soon get over its "midlife crisis" and return to the elite ranks of college basketball.
So, this is a thing.
So much disrespect.
It isn't better than the Spartans' College Football Playoff berth, but it's close.
When you watched the unforgettable end to the Michigan State-Michigan game, did you think you'd never see anything like it again? If so, you thought wrong. Palmer Trinity, a Florida high school, beat Scheck Hillel to win a local championship on almost the exact same play, turning a three-point deficit into a lead as time expired. Deja vu?
A number of changes were made to NCAA basketball rules this offseason, mostly designed to increase the pace of play. This 15 minute (yes, 15 minute) video runs through most of them in great detail, so of course fans will all be happy with officiating this year. Right?
