The Oregon Fish and Wildlife commission is finally set to vote on a plan for managing wolves in the state, after years of contentious meetings. The Oregonian/OregonLive reported that the commission is expected to vote in March 2019. The main sticking point has been over when and how lethal action can be taken against wolves that kill livestock.

Chris Solari Detroit Free Press Published 6:00 AM EST Jan 2, 2019 SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Mark Dantonio did not want to talk about his coaching staff. Or any chance that he might be changing it. The wounds of a 7-6 loss to Oregon in the Redbox Bowl felt too fresh, as did the frustration of watching a floundering offense destroy the dominant work of Dantonio’s defense. “I don’t think you make those decisions right now. … I don’t think those are fair questions right now,” Dantonio said Monday at Levi’s Stadium. “I’m not up here to answer questions about our staff, I’m up here to answer questions about this football game.” It is something he will need to address soon, whether he plans to keep co-offensive coordinators Dave Warner and Jim Bollman or other offensive assistants after the worst output of Dantonio’s 12-year tenure at MSU. Because the Spartans are at a crossroads. Yes, injuries can be blamed in … [Read more...] about Michigan State: Mark Dantonio must reassess balance of loyalty
Graham Couch Detroit Free Press Published 6:49 PM EST Dec 31, 2018 SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Lansing State Journal columnist Graham Couch gives his initial thoughts on Michigan State football's 7-6 loss to Oregon in the Redbox Bowl on Monday. This offense, this offensive staff, can't continue like this MSU’s offense, after a month of preparation and healing and game-planning, looked an awful lot like MSU’s offense all season. Again overshadowing a remarkable defense that also looked a lot like it had all season in a 7-6 Redbox Bowl loss to Oregon. The issues are deeper than a month’s work, truer than hope. This wasn’t a listless offensive effort by the Spartans. They seemed to play the second half with urgency. LJ Scott ran angry. Dave Warner turned his offense uptempo. MSU wanted to do this. Want-to isn’t the problem. Your turn: Rate MSU's performance in Redbox Bowl vs. Oregon MSU’s problem is that a month did nothing to change who it … [Read more...] about Michigan State’s offense woefully similar in Redbox Bowl loss
Chris Solari Detroit Free Press Published 6:34 AM EST Dec 14, 2018 Michigan State wrapped up final exams Friday across campus. The last test this season for the Spartans’ football team is a bit more than two weeks away, against Oregon at the Redbox Bowl on Dec. 31 in Santa Clara, Calif. But Mark Dantonio and his staff also get a sneak peek at the future Wednesday when the second college football three-day early signing period arrives. Tom Izzo and his basketball team, in the meantime, are off until Sunday, then only have two more games until the new year. Scheduling quirks – with the Big Ten going to a 20-game conference slate, MSU having to play in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge and also going to the Las Vegas Invitational, as well playing the one-year-delayed game at Florida – left December relatively open for the ninth-ranked Spartans. And the academic calendar left the sporting calendar fairly silent this week. Yet there remains plenty on fans’ minds … [Read more...] about Michigan State mailbag: How did football win 7 games?
