It’s that time of the summer once again. Big Ten Media Days are almost upon us. We’re going to get our first taste of Michigan State football, even if it is just an appetizer.
This is the time of the offseason in which it feels like football is finally right around the corner.
Shortly after media days, fall camp starts and pads start popping.
Let’s not get ahead of ourselves, though. Michigan State is preparing for Big Ten Media Days and it’ll be sending a few representatives to Indianapolis and these guys are legit candidates to be captains and team leaders this year.
Spoiler: there’s no quarterback.
JD Duplain, Tre Mosley, and Cal Haladay will be joining Mel Tucker in Indianapolis and representing the Spartans in a couple of weeks. This is not a surprising group of attendees.
In fact, Haladay has been the leader of the defense (along with Xavier Henderson) for the past couple of years, Mosley has been the veteran of the receiving corps, and Duplain has been a fixture of the offensive line since he got to Michigan State. Each will have a major role in 2023.
Michigan State football is in good hands
You really can’t go wrong with any of these guys as they’re all excellent players as well as great people. They’re going to represent the university well.
And this group just goes to show that the 2023 team is in good hands. These are legit leaders.
Some fans may have wanted a quarterback to represent the Spartans at Media Days, but that just wouldn’t make a ton of sense with no starter named yet. No hints have been dropped and you can probably expect that to be the case until kickoff in Week 1.
Michigan State is sending 11 combined years of college football experience to Big Ten Media Days. You just love to see it.
