Nick Hill exhibited a little bit of school pride yesterday when he got a rather large tattoo of a spartan warrior along his right oblique. Hill, a redshirt freshman, contributed mostly on special teams leading the team with 38 kick returns for 999 yards. He saw limited work in the backfield, carrying the ball 29 times for 118 yards.

Michigan State's Derrick Nix nearly ate and drank himself out of college basketball.
"It was close," Nix said. "I almost fell off the edge."

Michigan State running back Nick Hill probably isn’t going to be switching schools anytime soon. Unless, of course, he’s switching to 300 U and then, well, all bets are off.
