  1. Hi Katy. Michigan State University plans to add significantly to its existing human skeletal collection within the next 48 hours. It is Alabama vs. Michigan State in the Cotton Bowl tomorrow. After an encounter with Derrick Henry and the Crimson Tide, about all that will be left of the Michigan State football players will be their bones. But hey, the MSU paleopathologists will have a field day assessing the bone trauma. Are you going to the big game?
