The Michigan State football team fell to 2-1 with a 20-19 loss to Louisiana Tech today. MSU gave up 13 points in the final two minutes.
[Quarterback Luke] McCown pulled Louisiana Tech (2-1) within 19-14 with a four-yard TD pass to Julius Cosby with 1:09 to go. The Bulldogs failed on the two-point conversion attempt but recovered an onside kick on the ensuing kickoff.Not that it matters, but it was 19-7 before Louisiana Tech scored a touchdown and got the extra point to make it 19-14. After the next touchdown they did not even attempt to kick an extra point or score a two-point conversion.
On a completely unrelated subject, it is sad to see publications like The Economist ignoring the discrepancy between the amount of additional money U.S. President George W. Bush said he was asking Congress to cough up on Sunday and the amount his White House said they were asking for on Monday.

"A federal judge called upon District Mayor Anthony A. Williams and Police Chief Charles H. Ramsey yesterday to publicly admit that police wrongfully arrested as many as 400 people during demonstrations at a downtown park last year," Carol D. Leonnig writes in yesterday's Washington Post.
On some level I find it funny that Israel now says it wants to expell Yasser Arafat after spending the last 17 or 18 months confining him to his compound. 8:15 p.m. 09/13/03
