Video: Bet you've never seen Tom Izzo's boys like this

We’ve all seen Adreian Payne, Keith Appling and Gary Harris in their Michigan State basketball jerseys plenty. But none of us have seen them in Michigan State football uniforms. Until now. @MSU_Basketball tweeted out a terrific YouTube video that was played at Spartan Stadium on Thursday night. See it in this post.

Pretty cool, huh? And, yes, we’re sure fans are joking that the Spartans offense would be better if Keith Appling was the quarterback and Gary Harris was a receiver, as they’re portrayed in this feature.

All jokes aside, this is a fantastic video. It’s all part of the “Michigan State Spartans Stand Together” philosophy, and I hope to see similar ones in the future.
