Football spartanavenue.com —  It wasn’t a shock to anyone last week when Mark Dantonio named Tyler O’Connor the starting quarterback for Michigan State Football. Sure, right when the 2015 season concluded with the Cotton Bowl defeat, everyone had their own opinion on who would, should and could be the starter in place of Connor Cook but after a strong spring game and summer, it was obvious who the No. 1 guy should be.

Football impact89fm.org —  Mark Dantonio loves using multiple tight ends, and if there was ever a year to do just that, this would be it. On a youth-ridden team with little experience, feast your eyes on Josiah Price and Jamal Lyles. Price and Lyles are outliers in East Lansing entering their fifth years in Spartan uniforms.

Football mlive.com —  If Michigan State proved anything in 2015, it's the importance of special teams in big games. It won its two biggest regular season games on special teams plays: its touchdown off a muffed punt to beat Michigan, then a game-winning field goal against Ohio State. It wasn't a banner year overall for Michigan State specialists, and they'll look for more consistency overall in 2016. But no one can argue with the recent results in big games.

Michigan State’s quest to get to the College Football Playoff appeared to be over just days into last August’s preseason camp. Jon Reschke swooped in and took over the starting job. Chris Frey zipped in and out. Riley Bullough anchored the middle of the defense and helped make Davis’ injury a forgotten side note en route to the Spartans winning a Big Ten championship. They’re all back this year. And they’re hoping Davis joins them soon.

Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio hears that advice. Smile more. Loosen up. Don’t let things bother you. But he shrugs and says, “I am what I am.”

Football lansingstatejournal.com —  Malik McDowell wasn’t actually talking to reporters or NFL teams when he declared earlier this month that he wouldn’t leave Michigan State early for the NFL unless he’s projected as a top-three draft pick. McDowell doesn’t seem like one to pander for effect. And, I’m told, he doesn’t read headlines. Or pay any attention to what’s written about him. So this column will stay between us. He was talking to only one person on Aug. 8 — himself.

He chose the Texans over the San Francisco 49ers and three other teams' contract offers based on their strong history of keeping and developing undrafted free agents.

The 12th overall safety in the country according to the 247Sports Composite, expectations have been high for Cox since Day 1.
