My observations from last night.
Best player on the field was Broncos WR Corey Davis. Hands down. Not quick, but always found a seam and has great hands. I think he ended up with half of WMU's total yards. 2 star, 70 rated by 247. I think he may end up being a good one.
The MSU defense is just as good as last year if not better. The WMU TD at the end of the game was against a lot of our 2nd and 3rd teamers. I'm not a stats guy but a 26-7 victory would've 'looked' much better. WMU also gained 56 of their 204 yds on that drive. I'd rather keep the starters healthy and give up that TD.
Someone commented on the pass rush. MSU had 20 sacks last year. There were 5 last night. I'm not worried about the defense but who knows....with as much time as they'll be spending on the field they could suffer. The MSU offense is the biggest threat to the MSU defense.
There is no word in the English language to adequately describe MSU's offense. It's beyond ugly, abysmal, boring, etc. I'm not going to waste my time talking about it as most of you have already identified the issues. I have a bad feeling about USF next week.

That's like saying MSU is nipping at M's "heels" academically. MSU is a top 75 National Institution. In a vacuum MSU is a good/great school. When you have a one of the best (top 20?) schools in the country less than an hour away I can see how it is overshadowed.
GVSU is #35 in Midwest regional schools. Behind Kettering, Mercy and M Dearborn to name a few.
Depending on your major or desired college experience, GVSU may be the right choice over MSU. GVSU is a fine school in a nice area. I, along with most rankings, would disagree that MSU and GVSU are on the same level.

Hollis has been an innovative AD. Cold War, Basketbowl, Aircraft game, etc. MSU will never be on M's level financially but he has been able to make them one of the top 20 valued athletic programs. Not bad for a school with a dumpy football stadium and a lackluster fanbase.
To accuse him of exploiting our troops for fame and money is a little disrespectful.
He's done several derpy things like bringing in the Situation, Gerard Butler or tweeting Burke. Honoring Veterans Day and our troops is nothing to hate him for.

I joined specifically to respond to this topic. I am truly sorry for your loss. Full disclosure, I am a Spartan. More importantly, I have a son with CF. It's a horrible disease. As someone mentioned above the CF community is making advances every day. Hopefully my son and many others will live longer and more 'normal' lives.
I wanted to point out that the CF center at U of M is amazing. Our Doctors are second to none and the entire staff is wonderful. Kudos to U of M and the Mott facility. I know my son is in good hands.
