Michigan State’s Connor Cook Was Not Happy About Getting Asked How He’d Fare In Ohio State’s QB Competition

Connor Cook was one of Michigan State’s student-athlete representatives at Big Ten Media Days in Chicago today.  The Spartans’ quarterback was surely asked a lot of questions that he wasn’t a fan of. That’s what happens when you gives hundreds of reporters good access to a player, after all.  One question reportedly upset him more than any other, though.  Asked Connor...

The Big Ten Conference announced its preseason Players to Watch list today, with 11 players earning recognition (it’s usually 10 but there was a tie this year) from a “select media panel,” including two from Michigan State. The Spartans had a pair of players represented on the East Division list — defensive end Shilique Calhoun (READ: Calhoun’s role as a leader) and quarterback...

Michigan State Football: Most irreplaceable player (not named Connor Cook)

Over the past couple of months, Matt Hoeppner and I have been getting you primed for the Michigan State football season by offering different viewpoints on the season. Though there’s plenty of talk about the ability of Tyler O’Connor, Damion Terry and even Brian Lewerke, a potential first round quarterback is always going to be irreplaceable. So when looking for the most irreplaceable...

Connor Cook is front-runner to be first 2016 QB drafted

Every year, we seemingly enter the season with a clear-cut favorite as the top quarterback in college football. This year, Michigan State Spartans signal-caller Connor Cook seems to be that guy. According to MMQB’s Andy Staples, Cook is currently “the front-runner to be the first quarterback taken in the 2016 draft.” Staples went on to praise Cook for turning around the...

Michigan State’s Connor Cook has skills to excel in the NFL

Michigan State Spartans quarterback Connor Cook is one of the top signal-callers in the nation and many believe he will be in the first-round discussion. In fact, had Cook decided to enter the NFL Draft this season, he likely would have been the No. 3-ranked passer. Instead, Cook returned to Michigan State for some unfinished business. As a senior, the 6-foot-4, 218-pound passer...

WATCH: Michigan State QB Connor Cook is Not Taking Crap From Anyone!

Rivalries will often bring out the best in players as they will often find another level to turn their engine up to against their hated enemy.

Michigan State Football loses at Oregon, but sky isn’t falling

Everything seemed to be going so well. The Spartans were up by two scores in the second half looking for a program defining win. Then it all turned on a dime, or rather, Marcus Mariota turned on a dime. On one third down play Mariota, the Heisman Trophy candidate, escaped the MSU rush and found his running back for the first down. It was all Ducks from there. It’s hard to point...

Connor Cook was 'really pissed off' about dirty, late hit

Michigan State fans have to be happy with how the team looked in its 45-7 win over Jacksonville State last Friday, but during the game, they certainly had reason to be nervous and angry about an incredibly late hit on quarterback Connor Cook.
