Mindblower: Lew Alcindor a Spartan

It wouldn't have been exactly on the up-and-up, but Seth Davis' new book quotes former UCLA guard Lucious Allen as saying that a lack of pocket money almost had him and Lew Alcindor (soon to be...

Venting: U-M football must die

I can't hold it in any longer: AARRRRRGH! Reading yet another story saying that the Big 2 and Little 8 days are back has me nearly homicidal. Are you sick unto death of hearing how February verbals...

Vintage MSU football art

15

Here's a page of great MSU football art from 1925-1960. Sadly, these "posters" are currently unavailable until the company gets licensing from the university. But they're a very cool cross-section of different eras, and would probably do fine as wallpaper for your computer. Thanks to mgoblog.com, which tipped me off by posting a graphic from the site.

Dumb question: dorm rooms

As an alum pushing 50, I know the MSU dorms have undergone crazy changes to attract today's student. But I was wondering: Do any of the dorm rooms still have that stenciled LOCK YOUR DOOR message...

Best MSU Baller You Never Heard Of

Back in the early 70s, MSU basketball was unpublicized for Detroit area kids like me. All I knew was that they had a coach who played his 5'7 son at PG, and this guard named Mike Robinson put up a...

How MSU put baseball on the radar gun

3
(Bump for cool Spartan knowledge. For more on Marshall, read the book Ball Four -- you won't regret it. -- Pete) On April 3, MSU alumnus and former Cy Young winner Mike Marshall offered this version of how the now-ubiquitous radar gun got its start in baseball. In 1967, at Michigan State University, I took my first high-speed film. In 1971, I took the high-speed film that launched my major league career. Shortly thereafter, Professor Bill Heusner had me present my findings to the College of Education monthly symposium. Shortly thereafter, for his Master thesis project, Professor Wayne Van Huss helped Mickey Sinks, a Michigan State University baseball pitcher, design a device that measure release velocity. Professor Van Huss taught me undergraduate and graduate Exercise Physiology. He asked me to help monitor Mr. Sinks work. After seeing Professor Van Huss's device, I told him and Mr. Sinks that they should use the radar gun that the police use. Michigan State University Head Baseball Coach, Danny Litwhiler had a friend in the Michigan State Police Department that headquartered about two blocks from the MSU baseball field. The rest is history. Never shy, Iron Mike is still giving baseball hell with outrageous critiques and a radical new system for eliminating pitching injuries forever. Check him out sometime, at drmikemarshall.com.

Two M-16s Smuggled Into MSU-UM Game

National Guardsman masquerades as Honor Guard, gets onto field. Says he "really wanted to see the game, but didn't have a ticket." Unreal.

Coach runs afoul of Yahweh but prudently dodges brimstone. Another EDSBS classic.
