RIP Amo Bessone

I was going to post our recap of the Alamo Bowl, but I wanted to instead devote today's column to giving our heartfelt sympathies to the family and loved ones of Amo Bessone, the long-time MSU hockey coach who put Michigan State on the national hockey map.

The man was an icon from another era, when it was Jenison Fieldhouse and Dem Hall, not the Breslin Center and Munn Ice Arena. Bessone coached the Spartans for 28 years, and brought home a national title in 1966 (possibly the greatest year in Spartan sports history).

Thanks for everything Coach. We'll miss you.
