As if Michigan State didn't get enough flack this offseason, we made it worse by lacking a Spartan authority. No longer. MSULaxer27 is now on board as our MSU guru. Our newest contributor was born and raised on Long Island. He attended MSU after a seven year stint in the Army. While at MSU he played lacrosse and wore number 27, hence the handle. He graduated with a B.S. in accounting in 2000 after celebrating an NCAA basketball championship in Cedar Village with 14,000 of his closest friends. He currently resides in Alabama.
