Michigan State University President Lou Anna K. Simon and Spartans Athletic Director Mark Hollis tackle the issue of concussions and head injuries with MSU neurologist Dr. David Kaufman.

“This is a problem that almost always goes away after two to seven days,” Kaufman emphasizes. “90 percent of people do very well; the remaining 10 percent may have some residual symptoms that last more than a week. It’s an exceptional person who has a longstanding issue with post-concussion syndrome.”

And AD Hollis talks with Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, who reflects on his 25 years as conference commissioner.

“It’s been an opportunity and a privilege to work for these great universities,” Delany tells Hollis. “Change is ever present; we’ve expanded and built a network, and we’ve expanded opportunities for women while keeping those for the men intact.”

And MSU Turfgrass guru Kevin Frank offers autumn lawn care tips.

Right now (late September, early October) is the best time to fertilize and attack the weeds. “If you do it now, you may not enjoy the revenge factor of seeing the weeds curl up and go away,” jokes Frank. “If you go out there now and spray them with a broad-leaf herbicide, though, next spring you’ll likely not even notice the weeds.”
