Happy New Year!
Back from my trip to the Capital One Bowl. Great time, even if the result for my Spartans wasn't optimum. It was, however, a right next step. PSU and OSU crushed MSU early in the season and the logical next step was to go toe-to-toe with a big boy. Who knows, if State converts early field position into TDs instead of FGs, maybe the upset happens. Either way, great memories for the entire family due to the endless autographs and photo opps that we got.

For those interested, I made some press over the holiday's too. The first was as a result of a search for the biggest Spartans fanatics. If I can find the email I sent the writer as to why I was one they should select, I'll post that here!

Biggest fan story in LSJ

No @*#% Davis and Tisdale this week. Week 2 basketball picks.

Ohio State 64 at MICHIGAN STATE 70-Breslin fans will have anxious moments, but the dream start continues for Sparty.

PURDUE 66 at Penn State 63--Improved Nittany Lions hang tough, but Boilers hold on in "manhood" game.

MICHIGAN 72 at Indiana 66--Wolverines know that this game will matter at Selection Sunday.

Northwestern 64 at WISCONSIN 72--Carmody definitely getting no love from the early Big 10/11 schedule.

Minnesota 57 at IOWA 58--When in doubt, pick the home team.

Houston Baptist 54 at OHIO STATE 82--Visitors definitely need all the prayer they can get.

Kansas 62 at MICHIGAN STATE 72--Jayhawks still dangerous at Phog Allen, but become dust in the Michigan winds.

Indiana 60 at ILLINOIS 75--Orange Crush get payback for last year.

Iowa 56 at MICHIGAN 64--Another must win for Wolverine NCAA hopes.

Wisconsin 68 at PURDUE 72--A little nervous about picking three straight vs. Bo, but Boilers must play this week like they were in the NCAA tourney.

Penn State 65 at MINNESOTA 70--Big game for someone's post-season resume.
