There was a conspicuous act of bravery in the second half of this week's World Cup championship game.

The French team, which won 4 to 2, was bold and deft. Many of their players are immigrants, or children of immigrants, from Africa. Their victory was also seen as a triumph over bigots in France, who have vilified and attacked immigrants.

The Croatian national team was dauntless. Several of their players were from families who were refugees when their country was torn by war.

“I think the state of Spartan Athletics is very, very strong,” new Michigan State University athletic director Bill Beekman tells me on MSU Today. “Our two marquee revenue-producing programs, football and men's basketball, are performing at a very, very high level and a level where they're competing for Big Ten and national championships. I think those two teams can go into every game during the season with the belief that they're going to win. They're very strong programs led by extraordinary individuals of great integrity.
