The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic have touched every area of our life. It’s forced us all to evaluate not only our current place, but also our prospects for the future. Michigan State Athletics is not immune from those calculations. Sadly, as a University and an athletic department, we’ve reached a decision that MSU Athletics will no longer sponsor men’s and women’s swimming and diving as varsity sports following the conclusion of the 2020-21 season.

Spartan Football is back! For a while it didn’t look like that was going to be the case this year, but here we are preparing for a game week for the first time since the Pinstripe Bowl. The Spartans open this season at home with a game against Rutgers. All in all, probably the best way to ease into this odd year, the first under head coach Mel Tucker.

There’s a good chance the wideouts could be the strongest position group on MSU’s offense. The presumptive top-three of Reed, Nailor, and Mosley should be one of the better trios in the Big Ten. Reed is a proven weapon in the slot, Nailor is arguably the fastest player on the offense and Mosley is a big, physical outside target who performed well as a true freshman. Beyond those three, there isn’t much proven depth but a good amount of promising talent.

The Michigan State football team’s entrance to Spartan Stadium is a tradition. Players and coaches depart the Kellogg Center a couple hours before kickoff, cross the Red Cedar River and toss pennies on the Spartan Statue while surrounded by fans before heading into the north end zone of the stadium. That won’t happen on Saturday when Michigan State hosts Rutgers in the season opener.

After playing musical chairs up front throughout the 2018 season, MSU was again forced to shuffle its line far too often last season. Seven different alignments started games for MSU last season due to injury and underperformance. Chris Kapilovic comes in as a highly-regarded offensive line coach, and last year at Colorado he proved he can make an impact in just one year.

Collins is, without question, one of the most important players on MSU’s roster. He gives Tucker and Co. something every new staff would love to inherit — a bona fide all-conference-caliber skill player to serve as an offensive cornerstone. Even better, he’s a running back, so it doesn’t take much effort or wizardry to force-feed him the ball, even with this unorthodox lead-up and shortened season. “Snap, turn around, hand it off to Collins,” is a game-plan that doesn’t require much time to master.

Tucker said he would not release a depth chart at least early in the week, potentially longer. That is every coach’s dream — to have an opponent with no film to study. There isn’t even a spring-game tape to look at or TV footage of practices. Everything that has been disseminated by the program has carefully chosen and edited to hide much of what is actually happening on the field.
