Football Media Day: Dantonio Press Conference - MICHIGAN STATE OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE
Full transcript of Dantonio's Monday presser. I wish the official site would release these more often.
Spartans' Mark Dantonio: Freshman William Gholston 'looked great' in first practice | MLive.com
"Like the guys wearing No. 2. Returning wide receiver Mark Dell, for one. Five-star freshman recruit William Gholston for another. And Mylan Hicks, another high-profile freshman and defensive back, had No. 2 on as well. Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio said it wasn’t to confuse anybody. 'I know the difference between the guys and that’s all that matters,' Dantonio said. 'They said they were No. 2s. They are wearing No. 2s. It will sort itself out.'
Ha, really? Nobody thought that this would be a problem? That the two biggest defensive recruits wouldn't end up on the field together this season? This will lead to some epic RPS matches to "sort itself out."

While Roushar acknowledged he would like to have a definite starting five as soon as possible, he conceded this may not happen until real games get under way. Dantonio echoed the same, stating, "I think you can play a couple games, especially on the offensive line, work people in there."
Or, you know, at quarterback. [/stillbitter] Also, Mark Staten has a son named Maximus. Maximus!
