These are good times for the Michigan State athletic department. Last week, Mark Hollis was named 2012 athletic director of the year at the Sports Business Awards. The football program is enjoying historic consistency, having reached a school-record five consecutive bowl games and racked up a record 11 wins in each of the past two seasons. Although the basketball team had a disappointing finish in March, Tom Izzo's program is primed for a big season in 2012-13.
