Found February 19, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
Tonight, the Michigan St Spartans host the Indiana Hoosiers in what is being billed as the biggest game of the year in the B1G, until next week. Anyway, Sparty fans are pretty pumped up about this game, and their fans are taking to Twitter, even priests. This is an actual tweet by Father Joseph Krupp of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Hillsdale, MI. It isn’t the best usage of words… Yeah, that doesn’t sound good coming from a priest, no? I also like how he laughed off a pedo joke from the first person who replied back to him. Very classy, Father Joe. H/T @JimmyTraina

Report: MSU students set couches on fire, again (Photos)

Michigan State basketball falls short to No. 1 Indiana at home

EAST LANSING — Unfortunately for Michigan State basketball fans, there won’t be a “R.I.P ta da competition” popping up on your timeline tonight, a phrase that senior Derrick Nix tweets after every MSU victory. However, one thing Spartan fans did get tonight is one of the best basketball games of the season, even if it wasn’t in MSU’s favor. Led by Victor Oladipo’s 19...

The curious case of Zeller and Nix: Who’s at fault?

Disclaimer: I find it pretty ridiculous that I am writing these words. I find it even more outrageous that I spent a good portion of my afternoon watching a nine-second video over and over and over again to try to determine if Derrick Nix did or did not hit Indiana’s Cody Zeller on purpose Tuesday night. But with that being said, it’s an interesting topic for debate the day after...

Film Session: Sheehey’s perfect afternoon

Will Sheehey finished a perfect 9-of-9 from the field en route to a career-high 22 points in Saturday’s blowout win against the Boilermakers.

Sheehey scored on the break and in Indiana’s halfcourt offense — often making smart reads from the wing to sneak around the defense and score. A look at three smart...

Oladipo leads No. 1 Indiana past No. 4 MSU

EAST LANSING, Mich. On two legs, Victor Oladipo might be the best player in college basketball. As it turns out, the Indiana junior guard isn't bad on one leg, either.
