Not the greatest sports weekend in East Lansing. First, the Spartans basketball team loses to Division II Grand Valley State on Friday night. Then their football team suffers a crushing, come-from-ahead defeat at the hands of rival Michigan. State had a 10-point lead with 7:40 remaining in the game, but Wolverines running back Mike Hart claimed it was never in doubt. "Sometimes," he said, "you get your little brother excited when you're playing basketball and you let him get the lead. Then you come back and take it from him." Which is what the U of M did, pulling out a 28-24 victory on a late touchdown pass from Chad Henne to Mario Manningham.

Wait, did we say Darren McFadden had the best weekend of any running back? Scratch that -- the Pirates' Chris Johnson did. In a 56-40 win over Memphis, Johnson ran for 301 yards, scored four touchdowns, had 12 receiving yards and 95 kickoff return yards. Which means he accounted for 408 total yards and 24 points. Even better than McFadden ... but there's no way Johnson is sneaking into the Heisman race. Saturday was his first game with more than 150 rushing yards all season.
