Ohio running back Bobby Brown has recently been in contact with Michigan State. What have the Spartans told Brown about their interest? We get the latest from the power back.
A bit unexpectedly, the Michigan State Spartans flamed out against the Duke Blue Devils last Friday night without much of a fight. Few things went right late and midway through the second half, and it was obvious the Spartans would be going home.
Perhaps the best news from the defeat, though, was that Michigan State would only graduate one senior off a roster in transition which...

Michigan State Spartans head coach Tom Izzo is in Atlanta to be a Final Four analyst for ESPN and apparently he ran into 2 Chainz. No word on how much time they spent together, but this is definitely not a photo I ever expected to see.
