Enjoy.  It’s enjoyable.

David Brown files this special report for MSU Magazine that chronicled the happenings in and around the Spartans’ trip to the Rose Bowl played on January 1st, 1988.

There are quite a few delicious nuggets packed into this gem of a report.

Perhaps my favorite – after George Perles wraps up a post-victory speech in the locker room that had the emotional resonance of a discussion I recently had with my dentist about a potential filling I may need, Coach Perles fires off an intended-to-be-clever shout of, “Next up, RUTGERS!”

Michigan State opened up the 1988 season against Rutgers – and Rutgers defeated the Rose Bowl champions 17-13.  That kicked off an 0-4-1 start to the ’88 season.

SpartansWire would love to connect with the reporter of this piece, David Brown.

That’s assuming, of course, that this David Brown remains alive.
