Pretty candid response. Some takeaways....

- Couldn't find a position/break into the playing group

- Transferred because of PT... not some wild mass exodus conspiracy some believe

- On not having a relationship with Coach D.... Somewhat surprising/interesting given Coach D's perceived nature. But there are 100 kids on the team, not all are going to have the same level of relationship. He also kind of contradict himself by in saying he is "cool", "funny" and a "players coach". I'm sure he feels this way, but Coach D's ability to relate to players is not a concern of mine.

- On preferential treatment of certain players... Show me a team that doesn't. There are none. I believe a long rope was given to guys that have produced in the past like Cox and McDowell and they eventually hung themselves. Cox didn't travel to Maryland (or Rutgers?) and McDowell sat the end of the season "with an ankle injury". I fully expect this has been nipped in the bud.

- On Coach D not being heavily involved in the offense... No surprise, and nothing new here. But I bet he is more involved on the overall philosophy and game planning outside of practice than he sees/knows.

- Team gave up after the IU loss... again no surprise, we all saw it.

- The locker was not as divided as everyone likes to believe/pin last years woes on. Several of his comments back this up. Frey also touched on the whole Bullough/Trump thing at the BIG media days. I'm sure there was some issues. When you lose, it is never pure harmony and there were a few that needed to go. But the lockerrom was not ready to implode. This was mostly messageboard fan excuses IMO.

- Coaches aren't sitting on their ass, getting complacent, took the year off... more messageboard fan bullshit.

Freshman CB Josiah Scott a Spartan with talent, swagger

If Scott continues to respond and ends up in the starting lineup, he’ll be the first true freshman to start at corner for Michigan State since Dennard started twice in 2010.

Dantonio believes Scott has the right makeup for the job.

“He’s very mature, going to work extremely hard and is very sure of himself and confident,” Dantonio said. “He has a skill set like that. Plus, he’s been here for six months already and he’s sort of a guy that at least has gone through spring practice and has adjusted.”

Where to start?
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.

Children.....it's the same in any sport in the pre-season.

Every year all the baseball players show up at spring training in the best shape of their lives.

Christ if you can't be an optimist in the pre-season why even bother being a fan?

Nothing wrong with fans being optimistic(although I'm not about football) , it would just be nice to see these writers do better.

My smartass response is: Why wasn't it Team First before now?
My serious, thoughtful answer: Interesting article. With the way Jones talks to and explains things to younger players, it makes me wonder if he's a coach-in-the-making. Shane Jones: MSU HFC, 2037 – ?

I know we already do well with Moeller kids, but imagine having that type of bond with the school. Plus, I just like having an Ohio guy as our coach.

I am honestly asking myself that exact question.  Like OTPT I cant even click on these articles.  I am sure I will be a fan again by the time the ball is kicked off but I have no interest in talk after last season.
