At this point, MSU, you have a decision to make: Will you own up to mistakes and try to rebuild with the rest of the community, or will you become nothing more than “Michigan State University, Home of the Larry Nassar Scandal”?
Simon, if you’re the Spartan you claim to be, you will step down and bow out gracefully. We hope you make the right choice, because time’s up.
We can do better, and we will. That’s our promise to an audience that’s much more diverse than our coverage suggests. We want to be every student’s voice.
After MSU’s 63-45 win over reigning National Champion and then-No. 9-ranked North Carolina Tar Heels Sunday night, Spartan fans can finally measure the team’s growth since last season.
Certainly not everyone has to like Thanksgiving, just like not everyone has to like Halloween or Christmas or any other holiday. But I think everyone should give it more attention than it’s getting.
The city and university should not feel as if they’re competing entities, one successful and the other failing. They should function as what they are: symbiont.
If you’re the type of fan able to put a positive spin on MSU’s blowout loss to Ohio State, I’ll respect the hell out of that. The journey will be long. An honorable, noble task that should be celebrated, really.
Do not give the city money for its own incompetence. Do not reward them for failing to fix its financial issues. Do not be lured into a false idea that this tax is going to turn their situation around.
So let’s come together to rightfully acknowledge and crown this MSU offense for its desperate need to deliver down the stretch; shock a poor group of fans who just want a comfortable, blowout win.
