Michigan State Begins to Prepare for Improved 2013 Season
The Michigan State Spartans are back to work. There has been close to no break for the team that finished 7-6 in a disappointing 2012 season with a final win coming against TCU in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.
Head coach Mark Dantonio let the media get a sneak peak of the kind of work that the football team has been doing for the past couple of weeks starting at 5:30 a.m. each day.
The agility drills last about 90 minutes every morning and lead some players to believe that there is a method behind the madness that Dantonio puts forth. At each different drill station, there sits a trash can for players who don’t think they can stomach the breakfast eaten beforehand.
Above a couple of the trashcans is a sign that reads “Champions are built on a thousand invisible mornings.”
This is a motto that many players are buying into despite the intensity and devotion that each individual must showcase in order to be a part of this team. Michigan State quarterback Andrew Maxwell told the Detroit Free Press about his experience:
“When you start your warm-up lap and see buckets kind of stationed at different positions, you’re like ‘Uh-oh’. When they’re anticipating a puke coming on and set the bucket there before the workout even starts, that’s when you know you’re in for a treat.”
This is just another day on the campus of many colleges as football workouts have already begun around the country. This could be a positive sign for the Spartans down the line if the players put in the effort and buy into what Dantonio has been preaching: hard work pays off.
