In one of his latest projects, Davis has put his personal touch on the iconic MSU Shadows.
“It’s got such a legacy and it means so much to so many people. It’s a song that has a lot of nostalgia and tugs at the heartstrings. So I wanted to be careful with it and treat it with care, and I wanted to make it more intimate and bring it a little bit more into the present but also maintain a lot of that history because that’s what it’s all about is the legacy and our memories of Michigan State and what they mean to us. So it had to be handled delicately.”
Then President Simon and AD Hollis welcome Tom Izzo to the show for his annual visit.
“I like my team right now,” Izzo says in previewing his 2015/2016 Spartans. “I really have a lot of depth. We have two freshmen who I think are going to help us immediately. We have some veterans who have been here for four years. And we have some guys sprinkled in between.
“Last year we won more on chemistry than on talent. This year I think our talent is better, but I think our chemistry has remained as good. And that’s a good sign.”
