Getting this rolled out to celebrate the Rutgers win, the Spartans starting 3-0 in the Big Ten and Miles Bridges return.

It’s a bit sloppy and I will continue to work on the design, but I figured I would get it rolled out and work from here.

Thank you to everyone who sent me emails asking for the site to remain. I hope I can get this working as well as the old site.

One note: The main links will not take you to the story yet. Instead look for the source link at the end of the excerpt in every post except for the collection of links like in the game summary.

I still welcome any comments and feedback at spartansportspage@gmail.com. Thanks for being patient.

Go Green!
