When the only touchdown scored during your spring game comes from an offensive lineman on a 3-yard run, one might wonder if Michigan State might have issues on offense. However, defense is one of the five key things you could take away from this year's edition of the annual Green-White game.
However, Spartan Digest has some things besides X's and O's in our first look things that happened Saturday in Spartan Stadium.
Spartans offensive line coach Mark Staten really works to make the spring game a fun and exciting event. He drew up both offensive plays that had Donavon Clark and Jack Allen with the football in their hands.
Mark Dantonio continues to be more comfortable as the face of the Spartans football program. His entrance with the students caught the attention of many in attendance and in the media on Saturday.
Shilique Calhoun was soaking up all the media attention following the spring game. With a giant smile on his face and the willingness to stay and answer every question and then some, Calhoun knows his final days wearing the Green and White are closing in and he's trying to enjoy every single minute of it.
Madre London looks to have taken the first steps in becoming the Spartans main running back after rushing for 70 yards on nine carries. With an average of 7.8 yards per carry, London will get the early looks from the Spartans offensive staff when camp opens up.
Mark Dantonio wanted 50,000 fans in the stands for the spring game and may have received his wish. While officially announced at 48,000, those in the media area felt the Spartans under counted as the lower bowl of Spartan Stadium which holds 60,000 was very full. Multiple members of the media felt the count was closer to 52,000 and proved Spartans football is continually growing and catching the interest of more fans than ever before.
