TEMPE, Ariz. — I’ve seen pictures from Michigan today. All I can say is, I’m sorry. And really grateful to be in Arizona right now, sans shovel or ice-scraper or mittens. Sixty degrees never felt so warm.
Michigan State’s football team practiced again today at Corona Del Sol High School in Tempe, a few miles from where it’ll play TCU Saturday night in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.
Above is one of a few videos from the beginning and open part of practice.
The bigger news out of the MSU football community today is the passing of former Spartan linebacker Reggie Garnett, who died on Christmas morning. Garnett, a standout linebacker for the Spartans from 1993-96, was a Type 1 diabetic and succumbed to complications from the disease. Colleague Joe Rexrode put together a good piece today on this really sad story.
As for this year’s Spartans, Pat Narduzzi, Max Bullough and Andrew Maxwell were among the Spartans made available for interviews today. All the starters for both teams are expected to be available Thursday. Look for coverage at Greenandwhite.com and in the Lansing State Journal throughout the next few days.
Hope you’re safe and warm.
