Wonder who Chris Peterson is targeting as a new WR coach.

By the looks of his twitter page. I think Sparaco transferred back to Colorado. https://twitter.com/DanteSparaco and he's not on the roster.

Did I read somewhere that there is a press conference tomorrow?

Hard to imagine that he would have been happy with his playing time after starting at CU the year prior.

Dante was never going to be guaranteed playing time on the defensive line when he arrived at MSU as a transfer. A ton of talent but he had to compete. Kyle Finch and him battled for the #2 spot behind Sterk and Kyle won the competition fair and square. I hope Dante eventually gets a chance to show off what he is capable on the football field because he has an intriguing skill set. Just needs to put it all together.

The next step for MSU will be to build the desire for quality players to want to stay on the roster and at minimum be on depth rotation.
Tough to build patience at that age. I was the same way.
I had high hopes for Sparaco.(Assuming it is true he is gone.)
Get over that hump and MSU will be a perennial top 4 team.

This is why the next step is to have continuity on the roster year to year. Very little turnover. How do you do that? Small amount of transfers and develop from within at each class level. MSU's roster is very close to being there. It takes time.

Yep! I agree 100%
Two obvious schools in the FCS have accomplished this, one unnamed :-k the other looks to be Kennesaw State from scratch.

Stay on the roster, still get some rotational playing time, put in the sweat equity and make the grades, and as a senior you are the starter. That is pretty much what happens at NDSU.

Then you get to fool all the geniuses that say "they'll be down next year, they're losing a ton of seniors". You never have to rebuild--you're loaded with under classmen who could be playing but don't need to.

Seth Schneider from UI/Capital High has transferred to MSU and will be going through winter workout with the team. He was listed as a LB on the UI roster. Per their participant roster he has played in few games last year.

It occurred to me as I looked for a tweet on Kane's feed, how many of the signees he retweeted announcements for from signing days that aren't still on the team that were under ash's tenure. And how many are still here from that class he was here for with Choate

On a related note, I was thrilled when we got Finch as a PWO out of high school. I am glad he broke into the rotation the last couple of year. Sucks to lose Dante but Finch can play at this level no doubt about it.

I believe Kyle got a partial. May have to double check though.
