Linking Laconically is getting chippy

There isn't much hatred between MSU and Oregon, as the two teams have only squared off four times before this Saturday's looming showdown. But with the anticipation of the next meeting, players and coaches seem to be growing tired of all the talk and want to just start hitting each other (Or outsmarting each other, in the case of the coaches. Hopefully). As of typing this, there's still 72 hours until kickoff, though, and there's a lot of time for that hype to keep building. As Mark Dantonio always seems, it's important the Spartans wait until 6:30 ET Saturday to let the lion out of the cage.

They can't wait for media availability to be over with, either.
