While many say the advent of media days is the beginning of football season, the truth is we’ve still got more than a month until a real-life Michigan State Spartans game.

To help us all get through it, the Big Ten Network is premiering "Green and White Days," a show dedicated to the team’s preseason training camp. You can check out a little preview here:

G&WD promises "all-access" so hopefully we’re in for some real behind-the-scenes footage of how Mark Dantonio and crew shape and motivate their players. This quote from Big Ten president Mark Silverman in the Detroit Free Press sounds promising:

"It’s our second time we’ve done it, and we thought it would make sense to follow the team that won the Big Ten last year," Silverman said. "MSU is always very open with us and letting us come in and show a lot of behind-the-scenes and special-access kind of content."

Ohio State was the star of a similar show last season. The three-part series debuts on BTN at 7 p.m. Aug. 18 and will have one episode per week.
