I know fall is coming…not because of the weather, not because the kids are in school.
I know it’s coming because of the anticipation of the start of the season of my favorite football team, the Michigan State University Spartans. I’ve had September 5th marked on my calendar ever since the 2009 MSU Football promo video came out.
Fall marks the start of Mark Dantonio’s 3rd season as head coach of my beloved Spartans. In that time, he’s taken the program from mediocrity to respectability. I’ve enjoyed watching him take control of this football program and hopefully he’ll enjoy the sustained success Tom Izzo has had with the hoops team.
I have a ton of wonderful memories…
– Win in 1990 against Michigan in Ann Arbor where Desmond Howard dropped the catch for a 2 pt. conversion
– Charles Rogers catch in the back of the end zone against Notre Dame in 2002
– MSU victory over then #1 Ohio State in Columbus
– Always have to mention the infamous “clock” game when MSU legitimately had 1 second left when Smoker threw the pass to T.J. Duckett to win over Michigan
There is nothing like stepping on to the campus in East Lansing on game day…students and alumni tailgating, old friends getting together.
Here’s to another wonderful fall and…
Let’s go State!!!!
MARK YOUR CALENDARS…RALLY FOR ROSSOW ON OCTOBER 3 VS. MICHIGAN!!!!!
