Evin Groves, the talented but often injured running back for MSU, retired from football Monday due to recurring knee injuries, MSU announced today. Groves burst onto the scene as a true freshman in 2005, rushing for 326 yards and 5 TDs in the final three games of the season, where he got a chance to start. Bobcat fans will always remember his performance against the Grizzlies in 2005, rushing 35 times for 143 yards and a TD, the best performance by a freshman in Cat/Griz history.
