All in all a good scrimmage for MSU. The main thing you want to see is good competition. Neither side of the ball dominated the other and we saw good competition out of the 2nd teamers as well. The fact of only 1 healthy scholarship QB did hurt but I thought the walk-ons did a good enough job for the guys to compete. Beautiful weather led to a great crowd on the East Side of DWS and 1 of everyone’s main thoughts was the progress of the stadiums expansion. It will be awesome when it gets done.
Offensive MVP- Brandon Holloway /Derrick Milton – The Maroon team running back duo ran for a combined 227 yards and 4 TD’s while running behind the 2nd team O Line. Milton ran hard the whole scrimmage long and Holloway showed his home run threat ability.
Defensive MVP- Jay Hughes- I couldn’t find total tackle numbers for Hughes but I don’t need him. He was the best player on D the whole scrimmage. He stayed around the ball and made 1 play after another. He showed big hits, open field tackles, pbu’s, and had an interception. Great way to wrap up the spring for Hughes.
Final Spring wrap up, depth chart guess, and thoughts coming tomorrow.
