In an unexpected development my beloved Spartans defeated Indiana in football earlier today, 56-21.
MSU is now 4-6 with at least two games remaining. It was their first victory since September 28.
Charles Rogers caught his 24th and 25th career toudhdown passes to tie and break Kirk Gibson's record for the most tds by a Spartan receiver. The real significance of this is the effect it will have on television announcers covering MSU games. For as long as I've been watching nearly every game one of them brings up Gibson holding the record in an attempt to look smart while the second person in the booth acts amazed that the former baseball star could hold the record. Now I assume they will bring up that Gibson used to hold the record so the prattle can remain the same.
"It's all smiles in the Spartan broadcasting booth," longtime MSU football play-by-play radio announcer George Blaha said in the final seconds of today's game. I assume the same thing could be said of the Spartan sideline.
