Nightly Roundup: January 5, 2020

Nico Collins is coming back for his senior year, as expected:

I love Charles Woodson, but his affinity for Marcus Ray is borderline ridiculous:

Sam Webb put together a list of five coaching candidates to take Chris Partridge’s spot. Hit the LINK for the full rundown, but here are the names:

  • Roy Anderson
  • Devin Bush, Sr.
  • Steve Clinkscale
  • Cato June
  • Aubrey Pleasant

I would rank them in this order: Clinkscale, Bush, Pleasant, June, Anderson.

SBNation put together a list of the top 10 most irrelevant athletes of the decade, and MSU’s Glenn Winston made the cut (LINK). Spoiler: he had 1 career NFL carry, which resulted in -8 yards and a fumble. Screw that guy and the Spartan he rode in on.

Thanks to je93 for the generous donation via Paypal! I appreciate the contribution despite the self-imposed trip to purgatory.

Kansas City Chiefs defensive end Frank Clark is a pretty fun player to watch if you like pass rushers. On Monday night against the Los Angeles Chargers, he made 5 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, 1 pass breakup, and 5 quarterback hurries, one of which resulted in an interception.
