EAST LANSING — On Wednesday, the jury spoke and the verdict was in. In this case, however, the jury was the Michigan State football team and the verdict was the captains for the upcoming season. Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio tweeted  that senior middle linebacker Max Bullough, senior defensive back Darqueze Dennard and senior offensive guard Blake Treadwell were voted team captains for the 2013 campaign. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as these three seniors were the student-athletes that Dantonio chose to bring to the Big Ten Football Media Day in Chicago. While Dennard and Treadwell have been named captains for the first, and last time, Bullough has been named a captain for the second time in two years. Along side Bullough last season was senior linebacker Chris Norman and junior quarterback Andrew Maxwell. Maxwell, now a senior, was more than likely left off of this list due to the four-way quarterback battle that is currently taking place in MSU’s preseason camp in which he is potentially fighting for his college career. MSU’s quest to become Big Ten champions begins Friday,  Aug. 30 when they welcome Western Michigan to Spartan Stadium for an 8 p.m. matchup.
