I don't know if you remember this, but Michigan lost to Appalachian State the first week of the college football season this year. It was a pretty big deal because the Wolverines were the highest-ranked team ever to lose to a Division I-AA opponent. I'm sure there were a lot of people in East Lansing happy that day to see their in-state rival fall so low. Well, Michigan State's basketball team lost to Grand Valley State 85-82 in double overtime last night. What's that? You've never heard of GVSU? That's probably because you've never been to the G to the muthafuckin' Rap (Grand Rapids, MI). You probably also never heard of it because the Lakers are a Division II school. Did I mention that Michigan State is ranked #8 in the pre-season AP Top 25 poll and expected to win the Big Ten this season? Two things I will never say again: "Those poll makers know sure know their business!" and "The Big Ten looks strong this year!"
Astute readers will remember that I encouraged you to begin referring to MSU's football squad as the "Achaeans" after their loss to mighty Northwestern a month ago. That recommendation now applies to all their athletic teams, unless you live in Flint and don't want to get shot. Well, shot for a reason. -KD
