The problem with Michigan State football this season is less about the quarterback dilemma surrounding Brian Lewerke and Rocky Lombardi, and more about the giant step back the entire Spartan offense has taken compared to last year.
If Brian Lewerke’s feeling pain every time he throws the ball, and not performing at his usual level — in the passing game at least — he should let his backup Rocky Lombardi play until he’s 100 percent.
Since the 2016 election, one party has systematically failed to support a healthy democratic process. The Republican Party cut a deep divide through the electorate with a party-wide refusal to condemn the actions and rhetoric of President Donald Trump when sorely needed.
The State News endorses Democratic candidates Brianna Scott and Kelly Tebay, but their party — unlike our endorsement of all other candidates — is not what gets them the nod.
This season falls on Cassius Winston, the junior point guard from the heralded 2016 class that thus far hasn’t quite lived up to expectations.
Despite losing talented forwards Miles Bridges and Jaren Jackson Jr. to the NBA after last season, Tom Izzo's more experienced team this year will be just fine.
Backup quarterback Rocky Lombardi shined Saturday in Michigan State's 23-13 win over Purdue, in his first-career start for the Spartans. But don't expect him to take the starting job from Brian Lewerke just yet.
I knew I wanted to be a reporter. And MSU is the best in the state for that. Though the Michigan Daily is quite the paper, it cannot compare to the rigor The State News treks its students through.
If it weren’t for the trademark arrogance and complacent recruiting tactics of the University of Michigan in the 1960s, I may very well be a Wolverine.
The MSU and University of Michigan rivalry is arguably one of the biggest rivalries in sports, academics and anything else you can possibly imagine within the state of Michigan. There’s very little love lost between the fans and students of the two universities, causing a lot of bad blood.
