Three changes I saw in shaky home opener

First Change: As reported earlier this week, the Michigan State Football team wore a #95 decal honoring the late Bubba Smith on the back of their helmets. The decal looked exactly as suspected, except placed to the right side of the center stripe. Big Ten Network reports that the decal will be worn for the first three games and removed after the Notre Dame game, which was the last opponent Smith faced in “The Game of the Century.”

Second Change: The United States flag sticker, which was on the back of the helmets for the 2010 season, was moved to the right side of the center stripe, above the #95 decal.

Third Change: The field at Spartan Stadium looked different, missing the Block S Logo on the 50-yard line. The absent logo was not the athletics department’s doing, but the University’s Athletic Field Operations who didn’t want “heavy paint on the new grass,” according to Joe Rexrode of LSJ.

Bonus Change: The Michigan State cheerleading squad was wearing new outfits that looked very similar to the outfits worn by Oregon’s cheerleaders.

Our hats go off to Joel Foreman who volunteered his starting position allowing cancer survivor Arthur Ray Jr. to start and play in his first college football game. The opportunity was very emotional for Ray, his family and the entire Spartan nation who followed his progress back to the field.
