They were originally gonna expand Robertson Stadium but a study proved it would make more sense to raze it and build a new home on the site of their old one. 

Wasn't that old of a stadium. Built in 1942. They demolished it after the 2012 season, and played home games in 2013 at Reliant and BBVA Compass.

I do have to ask this - is "HAHAHAHAHA Connecticut" an appropriate reply to turning it over and then yielding the 2nd touchdown of the game as a result of your FIRST offensive play? I found it funny actually, but only because I still think of last year and our game sometimes.

He just said that MSU has been a top ten defense since Dantonio has been at MSU. In fact, MSU was a middling defensive team until their fourth season when they made the jump to a good defense.

That was a terrible hit - but it looked straight on.  So, hopefully its only a hyperextension and no ACL/MCL damage.  I hate Sparty, but I don't like to see people get seriously injured no matter what jersey they wear.
