Nobody is better at statistics, or kicking the crap out of people
Who's gonna win Wyoming's three electoral college votes in the 2024 Presidential election? Oh, maybe we should just ask statistician savant and East Lansing native-son, Nate Silver, he'll know. East Lansing High School Debate Rules! Also, although technically from nearby Lansing, it's close enough that we'll claim him: Steven "Protect Ya Neck" Seagal, baby!
Although, let's not forget the alumni
Magic Johnson. He went here. No biggie. He was just a legend that even a horrible disease couldn’t keep down. We also have James Caan, Bubba Smith, and Tom Sizemore. Actually, maybe that’s not such a thing to be proud of. But Eminem came here… it was just to drop off Hallie, who goes here now. But we’ll take it.
Or the man himself... Tom Izzo
MSU’s basketball coach is one of the most respected and beloved in the history of the NCAA, and that's based on his sterling win-loss record and community-wide regard as a generally swell guy. Coaching the Spartans was his lifelong goal. He’s like Horatio Alger in a suit. Also, Lupe -- his wife -- is a saint.
