I’m here to help you. Not out of the kindness of my heart, but selfishly as I want you all to be on your best behavior and for us upperclassmen not to immediately be able to pick you out as you awkwardly stand there with your phone in your hand as the alma mater starts to play.
We’re exactly one month away from Michigan State’s opening matchup versus Western Michigan, with training camp opening this week. Here are six essential questions to investigate with the season on the horizon.
“We were not very good last year and we know that,” Tucker said. “It is up to us to figure out a way to be more consistent to give our football team a chance to beat good teams.”
Reed said on the field is not where he feels he has made the best strides this offseason. It’s in his confidence and with his own inner peace.
“Someone's got to confront that and so if it's not one of the players, it's going to be a coach,” Tucker said. “Once you get the players doing that, especially your quarterback, now you're cooking with gas.”
In this world of college football, it’s survival of the fittest and the Big Ten has moved forward with ensuring its survival.
The Midseason Watch List will be released on Oct. 25, when voting will begin. The field will be narrowed down to the final 16 candidates on Nov. 8, and then dwindled down to three finalists who will be announced on Nov. 21.
Michigan State’s defensive line was by no means a weakness of last year’s team. On the surface level, the line looks like it excelled both against the run and pressuring the quarterback. The Spartans led the Big Ten in sacks while also ranking 18th in the country in rushing yards allowed per game. If you ask MSU coaches though, it’s nothing worth celebrating.
Michigan State athletics has announced it will now allow Spartan football fans to tailgate earlier on game days and bring clear bags into the stadium, a reversal of the previous policy. The new policies will go into effect for Saturday games during the 2022 football season.
Alcohol sales are unlikely to begin anytime soon in Spartan Stadium with the current law and the need for approval from the MSU Board of Trustees, but Haller looks to get the ball rolling to attempt to improve the game experience.
