Michigan State Football: Dantonio to keep quarterback controversy in house

Another week of Michigan State football has passed by and still the quarterback situation looms in the air. After less than stellar play from both Michigan State quarterbacks who played in last Friday night’s rainy 26-13 over Western Michigan, it still potentially leaves the starting job open to all four guys. And even if that wasn’t the case, don’t expect Michigan State head...

Michigan State’s new QB might be one of them (Watch)

Football season is well underway, as the first weekend of action is over for college. Michigan State’s defense was outstanding in the Spartans 26-13 win. The offense? Not so much. The defense actually outscore them 14-13. Both Andrew Maxwell and Connor Cook struggled at quarterback and the fans and media are calling for a change. Maybe they should choose from these guys who are...

Michigan State’s QB choice isn’t as tough a decision as it looks

I’d like to say this is a good problem for Mark Dantonio, but I don’t speak with that much confidence. With less than two weeks before the Michigan State Spartans open their season against the Western Michigan Broncos, they are without a starting quarterback. In fact, the decision is getting murkier the longer the process goes into summer practices. When the Spartans broke Spring...

That’s when he came across what appeared to be a mannequin sporting the Spartans new digs for the upcoming season. Sporting quarterback...

Spartans eager to move on after close calls

Michigan State quarterback Andrew Maxwell is well aware of how many close calls his team was involved in last season. The Spartans' first seven Big Ten games were decided by four points or fewer, and since they lost five of them, it would be easy for this team to expect a rebound in 2013. Maxwell, however, is taking nothing for granted. ''They really are inches - but...

The theme of this year’s spring game? Uncertainty...
