Every Red Wing, Lion and Tiger has a jersey out there for sale. The team’s success determines the amount of those that get sold and thus can raise a players stock.

While the Spartans may have defeated the Broncos of Western Michigan 26-13, it was clear after last week’s game that Michigan State has issues they need to address. The good news is, they have time.
