    Is the MSU leadership aware about how awful the bathroom situation is at Spartan Stadium? I read nothing on improving that with this renovation.

    Gene, let’s get the game in Cleveland or Cincy if we put it in Detroit. You care so much about the community with you hard line 7 home games a year view, how about applying that reasoning to other things. Schedule Akron & BG instead of Buffalo and Florida A&M while I am on the topic. Support Ohio like you claim you do.
