WASHINGTON - Careful to not let a rare legislative accomplishment go unnoticed, President Obama will jet to an agricultural research hub in Michigan on Friday to sign into law the long-delayed farm bill and deliver a speech on the importance of rural America to the economy. In his brief trip to Michigan State University in East Lansing, Obama will outline a new administration-wide effort to boost exports from rural America and point to a new report from his economic team on the growth in the agricultural sector.

When Notre Dame plays Michigan State in Spartan Stadium at East Lansing, Mich., Saturday, the Irish will be waking the echoes, among them one that Notre Dame might prefer not to hear. It has reverberated around Spartan Stadium for 20 years now, mocking Notre Dame's 1966 national championship team. Notre Dame, remember, is a school of proud traditions, one of which is that the Fighting Irish don't just fight, they fight to win. No one ever questioned the pluck of the Irish.

The 100th Rose Bowl came down to a fourth down and the most predictable play call in Pasadena on Jan. 1 since they resumed football in 1916 after years of chariot and ostrich races. "Everyone in the building knew it was coming," Stanford tailback Tyler Gaffney said. Two bullheaded teams that refused to give an inch put everything on the line over 12 inches of territory at the Stanford 34-yard line in the Rose Bowl's north end. Stanford rolled out its "elephant" backfield package and Michigan State's defense rolled up its green sleeves.

A federal judge in Kalamazoo, Mich., will consider whether Magic Johnson's name should be officially added to a lawsuit accusing him of giving a woman the virus that causes AIDS. The former Laker star has acknowledged that he is the man identified as "Richard Roe" in the lawsuit, filed in October of 1992.

Michigan State opens the football season in three weeks against USC, and George Perles can't wait. "This is probably the biggest opener in the history of this school," the Spartan coach said of the game at East Lansing. "I wouldn't trade that game for anything. "ABC. Monday night football. Labor Day in the state of Michigan. I get chills when I think about it. Labor Day in the state of Michigan. September 7th, Michigan State makes history with its first home night game."

Fou Fonoti is the only player from California on Michigan State's roster. The senior right tackle from Lakewood said Sunday that he had entertained about 50 family members since arriving in Southern California for Wednesday's Rose Bowl game against Stanford. "It's been great to share this experience," he said. The 6-foot-4, 298-pound Fonoti played at Lakewood Mayfair High and Cerritos College before choosing Michigan State over UCLA, Arizona, Washington State and Rutgers.

Smarty, meet Sparty. The race for this year's 100th Rose Bowl game was not nearly as exciting as the race for tickets to this year's 100th Rose Bowl Game. Stanford, the defending Rose Bowl champions, may have even been outsmarted by ticket-hungry fans from East Lansing. Michigan State, after all, is making its first Rose Bowl appearance in 26 years. It was reported last week that some Michigan State fans took advantage of a Stanford plan that offered tickets to anyone who put a $100 deposit to become a 2014 Stanford season ticket holder.

Tennessee probably couldn't run up the score this year even if it wanted to, what with star back Jamal Lewis out because of a knee injury and Georgia possibly being the better team. Bulldog fans have been waiting a long time for this day "between the hedges." Tennessee has won seven in a row in the series and last year Volunteer Coach Phillip Fulmer greatly annoyed Georgia Coach Jim Donnan, letting quarterback Peyton Manning direct a fourth-quarter touchdown drive in a game that ended up 38-13.

For the second straight game of Lou Holtz's tenure as Notre Dame coach, the Irish had a chance to pull out a victory in the closing seconds and failed. Todd Krumm's second interception of the game, with 1:26 left at the Michigan State 20, preserved the Spartans' 20-15 victory over Notre Dame Saturday. Krumm returned his first interception 44 yards for a touchdown early in the game.
