Football mlive.com —  Michigan State will have its work cut out if it is to maintain the efficiency of its self-styled "No Fly Zone'' secondary, as unanimous All-American cornerback Darqueze Dennard and reliable, hard-hitting strong safety Isaiah Lewis have moved on to Cincinnati Bengals' training camp. Junior cornerback Trae Waynes (14 career starts) and senior free safety Kurtis Drummond (21 starts) have been ranked among the top 10 defensive backs in the nation by NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks, but both will have significantly harder jobs on their hands.

Football espn.go.com —  The Spartans finished No. 3 in the FBS in pass defense last season, though the "No Fly Zone" lost two key members in Thorpe Award winner Dennard and safety Isaiah Lewis. Still, Kurtis Drummond might well be the best safety in the Big Ten, and Trae Waynes is ready for his star turn at cornerback. Darian Hicks will hold down the other corner spot, with a spirited competition for time at the other safety slot. With the combined brain power of Mark Dantonio, Pat Narduzzi and Harlon Barnett, we expect Michigan State to keep the title of the league's top secondary.

Men's Basketball mlive.com —  "I'm still waiting to hear; hopefully in the next month,'' Forbes told Mlive.com on Tuesday night following his Moneyball summer league game. Forbes, who signed with the Spartans on June 13 after two seasons at Cleveland State, has applied for a hardship waiver, as he has an immediate relative in the Lansing area dealing with an illness. Forbes has two years of eligibility remaining, but if the NCAA denies his waiver request, he would be mandated to sit out this season.
