NCAA Football: Rose Bowl-Stanford vs Michigan State

Merriman: 5 stars from MSU's spring football game

The defending Big Ten and Rose Bowl champion Michigan State took the field on Saturday afternoon in the annual Green-White spring football game at Spartan Stadium. There were plenty of stars on both sides of the ball, including quarterback Connor Cook, who hooked up with tight end Josiah Price for a game-winning touchdown pass with 27 seconds left to lead the White team to a 20-13 win over the Green Team. Here’s a look at five players who stood out in today’s MSU spring football game. [ MORE: Dienhart: My take from MSU’s spring game ] 1. Darian Hicks, CB,

Dienhart: Michigan State defense still has it

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Those were real, live hits on quarterbacks in today’s Michigan State spring game. What else would you expect from a Spartans program renowned for its toughness? At one point in the second quarter, quarterback Damion Terry absorbed a wallop that sent him to the sideline. The famed “Spartan Dawg” defense that roughed up Stanford in the Rose Bowl still has it, in case you were wondering. This will be the last time we see Michigan State until Aug. 29, when the Spartans open the season playing host to Jacksonville State on a Friday. And, frankly, I’m

Sparty

Sparty takes handoff, and runs for touchdown

It isn’t a Michigan State spring game without a Sparty play. In what has become a tradition under Mark Dantonio, the Michigan State mascot lined up in the backfield and took a handoff in Saturday afternoon’s spring finale. While Sparty scored on the scamper, let’s just say, Pat Narduzzi’s defense didn’t look like a Pat Narduzzi defense on the play. The unit probably felt bad for him after it put a licking on him the last two years. See Sparty’s last three runs in this post.

Michigan State's Rose Bowl ring is kind of impressive

BTN’s Lisa Byington gave Michigan State fans a sneak peek at the team’s Rose Bowl ring during Saturday afternoon’s spring game. The ring, which the Spartans haven’t seen yet, is quite impressive. It’s large, too. Like, really large. See a few pictures of the ring in this post.

Northwestern players vote on union question

In a historic vote, Northwestern football players cast secret ballots Friday on whether to form the nation’s first union for college athletes – a decision that could change the landscape of American amateur sports. “You got to give the people what they want!” one of the players shouted at reporters, who were kept away from the players as they entered a campus building to vote. Some waved and another busted out dance moves. [ MORE: Read all of our unionization coverage ] Results of the unprecedented vote won’t be revealed any time soon.

Dienhart: How will Michigan look next year?

Mitch McGary turning pro puts another big chink in Michigan’s hopes for next season. The Wolverines already have seen Nik Stauskas and Glenn Robinson III turn pro, two of their top players from last season’s Big Ten championship squad that advanced to the Elite Eight. The team also saw Jordan Morgan graduate and Jon Horford opt to transfer out for his last season. John Beilein’s 2014-15 team will be built around the trio of Caris LeVert, Derrick Walton, Jr., and Zak Irvin. Spike Albrecht also will play a key role. It will be vital for Mark Donnal to take the
