MSU winning it all? Why not?

Spring football left us with some questions answered and some unanswered, as usual. It also left me with a bit of a revelation -- based more on how people reacted to Denicos Allen than on what he said. A lot of players on a lot of teams talk about winning national titles, and most of them fall somewhere in the overly optimistic>>>delusional range. MSU's players have earned the right to say it out loud and at least receive a look (one eye raised, one side of upper lip raised) that says: "Hmmm, hadn't really thought of that, but it's not totally crazy."

MSU winners: Mayhem, women's golf

Anyone remember the buzz Seth Mitchell created as a freshman linebacker in MSU's preseason camp in 2001? The severity of the knee injury he suffered during that camp? The explosion he showed at times in 2003 even though it was obvious his football career couldn't go on much longer? This guy might be a heavyweight champ some day soon.

Baker caps the day

Edwin Baker to the Chargers in the seventh round, No. 250 overall. Just three picks away from Mr. Irrelevant but I'm sure he'll take it. This gives MSU six players drafted, the most since seven went in 2000. (The record, for the record, is 10 -- in 1973 and 1952).

The big question? Who got hurt? Will Gholston has a bruised right knee, according to information BTN sideline reporter Lisa Byington got on the field. Denzel Drone hurt his left leg and was on crutches afterward. Larry Caper barely played, the word from Spartan Radio's Adam Ruff is a slight concussion. Le'Veon Bell also barely played and was limping a bit after the game.
