I'm guessing you're an M2, so tell me...

Kalis may be working his way back into the lineup at RG, moving Magnuson over to LG and bumping Bosch out of the lineup, but you didn't hear that from me.

No, not really. Later though I asked him if he ever receives coaching input from his players (seniors, captains) and all he said was "Yeah. We talk." And then he stared into my soul for a few seconds.

The first string units take a handful of snaps against each other every day at the end of practice and when doing situational drills (red zone, goal line, two-minute). Positions groups will go against each other by depth chart, too (starting receivers against starting corners, starting O-line vs. starting D-line). I'm pretty sure the coaches are fully aware of what matchups they like to have in practice in order to give everyone the best looks.
|2 years 13 weeks ago||Addendum||
I went back and forth about whether or not to include this, but I guess I asked it, so ... here it is:
MGoQuestion: Brady said he thought the game plan was correct, but hindsight is always 20/20. Knowing what you know now, what would you have done differently?
"I won't answer that question. I won't answer it. That's a loaded question. There's no way to answer that. Obviously we thought we were doing what was best. Looking back with 20/20 [hindsight] has an effect on Nebraska. It has no effect on Michigan State."
Al Borges hates me!

1. Just wondering if pregame prep has changed over the last couple years.
2. They got fooled by MSU last year, presumably because Dantonio was like, "hrgmph i'll show you fake punt."
Also, sometimes I ask questions just to hear the sound of my own voice.

|2 years 22 weeks ago||I've thought about||
I've thought about attributing other reporters, but I decided against it because people are sensitive about these things. A great question to one person may seem like a stupid question to someone else. Plus most of them are not there looking for penetrating and intellectual discussions about football. They're there to get quotes for their stories, and sometimes coaches answer crappy questions more willingly than good ones.
Anyway, the guy who asked that question was Craig Ross, who is the man.

I made a mental note to check that but then I had to go to the bathroom and apparently pissed away my short-term memory. Anyway, fixed.

DaMario Jones looks like the freshman receiver most likely to get playing time this season.
The other non-Gordon spot seems to be improved from his bowl game performance.
Other than that I got nothin'.

Wouldn't worry about Clark at 3-tech. He's strong and not that much lighter than Jibreel. He could be effective there as a mismatch vs. guards on passing downs.

|2 years 24 weeks ago||Sorry, I should have||
Sorry, I should have clarified: 2nd best backup. Glasgow has been taken snaps at both left guard and center and is better suited for guard than Braden. In fact there has been word percolating from practice that Glasgow managed to execute a reach block effectively. Anyway, I think the rationale for moving Braden to tackle was because 1) tackle is his ultimately destination, and Michigan is short on tackles next year, 2) Bryant is a better guard and is better at pulling, and 3) Glasgow can backup at left guard if center doesn't work out.
|2 years 24 weeks ago||Yeah there was some||
Yeah there was some reshuffling because of Bryant's absence. I'm just saying that Braden hasn't practiced at guard since Bryant took the spot about a week ago. With Bryant out I'm sure Braden is at least the 2nd best option at left guard. He did spend most of spring practice there, after all.
