–Let’s start off with another Michigan State update.
–Even though Saturday officially is the last day of training camp, the first regular season practice basically is tonight because Cal begins putting in its game plan for Michigan State. The big question about tonight’s practice is whether the players running with the first unit are the ones we can officially call starters. Of course, the coaching staff reserves the right to change its lineup around at any time, but you also prefer to have some stability when you are preparing for an opponent. If one of the quarterbacks works exclusively with the first team, we may have an answer. Jeff Tedford will answer those questions after practice, and I, of course, will provide an update as soon as possible.
–One media coverage note: The ABC broadcast team calling the Cal-MIchigan State game is Ron Franklin on play-by-play, Ed Cunningham on color and Heather Cox on the sideline.
