The Michigan State coaching staff is still yet to commit to a starting quarterback. The three (main) candidates are redshirt junior Rocky Lombardi, redshirt sophomore Theo Day and redshirt freshman Payton Thorne. Way back in April, I took a lot at each quarterback and made the case both for and against starting that particular player. We are now well into October, and the coaches are still pretty tight-lipped about who is leading the race.
