MSU announces that the spring practices are open to the public again this year. For all of the football related things that Dan Mullen closes to the public, I love that he gives the public a look in the spring. I went to 6 practices last year and it really gives you an inside look at the players progression, the coaches and their styles, and how the players and coaches communicate on the field.
There are so many things to watch this year many are glad the spring remains open. The position battles should be intense. There are 2 juco transfers (Jeremy Chappelle and Justin Cox) that are being counted on to compete immediately. We get to see how David Turner differs from Chris Wilson and the way the defensive linemen react to him. Billy Gonzalez takes over the WR position and the group lost 5 seniors leaving competition wide open. I could go on but you get the point; there is no shortage of story lines.
These practices are open for a reason. It’s 100% for the fans. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this privilege and go support the players and coaches.
