Veteran LBs hope to spread energy to young Michigan State defense

EAST LANSING — Mike Tressel always has been a high-intensity coach.

That shouldn't change now that Michigan State's co-defensive coordinator has resumed coaching linebackers, a position group that's expected to be among the Spartans' deepest and most experienced this season.

“We try to be the core of the defense in the linebacker room, we challenge ourselves,” Andrew Dowell said Monday. “Coach Tressel challenges us and we challenge ourselves to always bring energy to practice and let other position groups feed off of us.”

Chuckled when I read that too. I guess I understand what he means by it. Maybe with returning starters he feels that the position players defer to those starters and maybe aren't as intense. Not naming a starter and having two spots open, I can imagine those four guys are putting esxtra time in the film and weight room and in the playbook too. Like you say, from last year, it has to improve. Was disapointed in the play back there, but we never really know true injuries or what was going on back there last year. I think we'll be better. Certainly hope so.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

2 of those I'd be happy with. 3 I'd be ecstatic. 4 and we're winning the Natty in '18.

Agreed, but he's still a Trustee. A coach needs to play the games to stay on the good sides of all Trustees. Further, while we know him to be an asshat, those on the team probably don't know him at all, and he can tell the story how MSU helped prepare him to succeed in business. I'm taking the high road here in not pointing out all the other messy stuff.

Not an asshole, just venting. I wish he wasn't let anywhere near football or anything related to athletics... or MSU.
