Football season starts today!
Well, technically it's called Spring Football, but it is still an important time for the MSU Football program. The first practices since the season ended at the Capitol One Bowl begin today. According to the released schedule, the team will play this week in shorts and limited pads and will be in full pads at the start of next week.
There are several positions battles of interest, notably the battle for QB between Keith Nichol and Kirk Cousins. The fight to replace RB Javon Ringer may be just as important, but most likely will not be decided at all in spring ball, as two of the top contenders for the position are incoming freshmen who will not arrive on campus until fall.
Keep an eye on the newcomers who are already enrolled and should participate: DE Corey Freeman, WR Donald Spencer, and WR/CB Patrick White, and transfer TE Brian Linthicum.
MSU's Spring Football game is April 25th at 1:30 p.m. in Spartan Stadium.
