MSU football ranked No. 14 in preseason Coaches Poll; We talk tight ends and offensive line

MSU football cracks the top 15 in the first USA Today Coaches Poll of the season. Is that ranking too high, too low or just right for our Spartans? Also, we talk about Tank Brown and the fascinating season ahead for him. What's his positional home, and will finding the field be easy for him ahead of his second season as a Spartan? Tight ends coach Ted Gilmore and offensive line coach Chris Kapilovich spoke with the media today. What did they have to say about their position groups that will have plenty of eyes on them this fall? And we end with answering two mailbag questions, going over what Director of Recruiting Jon Borovich will be doing at MSU and what are some of the biggest "what ifs" in Spartan history.

WOOWEE WHAT A TIME ON THE RECRUITING TRAIL. Michigan State basketball and football each land big fish in the last few days, so we have to talk about it. We start with basketball's star-studded 2023 class that added another big-time commit in Gehrig Normand. What does he do best, and what does this mean for MSU's roster in 2023-24? We then switch over to the football field where Mel Tucker and Co. reeled in two big fish -- 4-star offensive tackle Stanton Ramil out of Alabama and 2024 wide receiver Nick Marsh out of River Rouge High School. Then we end the show with bantering about Xavier Booker and the chance he decommits and the 2023 MSU football schedule. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

BOOM! No. 1-ranked prospect Xavier Booker commits to MSU basketball

BOOM! No. 1-ranked prospect Xavier Booker commits to Michigan State basketball and we break down (and celebrate) his commitment to the 2023 class. What is it that makes Booker elite, and what former Spartans could he possibly be compared to? We also chat about what this commitment means for Tom Izzo and how impressive it was to beat out all the other schools on Booker’s final list. And, finally, what’s next? MSU is in great position with Jeremy Fears and Xavier Booker, but what other players will they look to add to this already-stacked 2023 class. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

We are joined by Carter Elliott of The Sleepers Podcast for an all-MSU basketball episode.

How are we feeling about this top five recruit’s chances to be in green and white? And what about Devin Royal too? Carter was also at the Moneyball Pro-Am recently, so we pick his brain on who has been impressing him the most and who we think will surprise people this upcoming season. We then talk about the news of the PK85 Tournament bracket reveal and discuss what games we are looking forward to the most in another hectic non-conference Tom Izzo has created.

What's up with MSU football recruiting? And making fun of Pat Narduzzi's odd Peach Bowl comments

Michigan State football recruiting took another hit over the weekend as offensive tackle Payton Kirkland picks Texas. With offensive tackle targets getting taken off the board, where do things stand with that position for the 2023 class? And are fans in the right to feel a tad underwhelmed with how July has gone on the recruiting trail? We then also take a gander at Pat Narduzzi's comments about the outcome of the Peach Bowl and how Pitt would win the Big Ten every year. We end with mailbag questions on if recruiting reporters' predictions are ruining the fun and if we'll see four quarterbacks against Akron or not. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Is MSU football recruiting healthy for us fans? What 3 former MSU players would we put on this team?

A really fun show is in store today as friend of the program Austin Smith of The Only Podcast joins the show! We start with talking about Payton Kirkland's commitment date coming up this weekend and that leads into the question -- is MSU's rise in recruiting healthy for us Spartan fans, or are we losing years on the end of our lives? Then we take on two mailbag questions, starting with picking three players from the last decade to add onto this year's Spartan football team. And then we close out the show debating which Big Ten football coaches would make the best (and worst) father-in-laws. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

Mel Tucker and the MSU football staff keep their reign in recruiting rolling with the additions of Jaylon Braxton and Clay Wedin. Where do these kids stack up nationally and what does that do to MSU’s team ranking? And then we take a look at MSU’s third straight big recruiting weekend highlighted by 11 visitors – who are the big names and are we expecting some more commits in the near future? And we end with Michigan State basketball potentially playing on an aircraft carrier again and answering an email question about how we think Mark Dantonio feels about all of this.

MSU basketball or football closer to a national title?; What should Tucker use for recruiting next?

Friend of the program @MattyMehhh joins the show to crack open the mailbag that takes us on a journey. We start with the evergreen question of "Who is closer to winning a national championship -- Michigan State basketball or football?" We then try to help the MSU football staff in recruiting and debate what other vehicles they can use for photoshoots the next two weekends. And if you thought this program lacked Dua Lipa content, we got you covered. Just trust us. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! Built Bar Built Bar is a protein bar that tastes like a candy bar.

4-star LB Jordan Hall commits to MSU football's 2023 recruiting class; Mike Garland retires

Michigan State football keeps its momentum rolling for the 2023 class as they add a top 200 player in Jordan Hall out of IMG Academy. What is there to love about his game, and who did he pick Michigan State over? And what does this do for MSU's class nationally? After 22 years at Michigan State, Mike Garland steps into retirement and leaves a spot open on MSU's staff. What were players and coaches saying about him, and what route will MSU go to fill that position? And before diving into our mailbag to talk about Kenneth Walker's impact on recruiting, we take a quick peak at Spartan athletes and how they fared at the NCAA Track and Field National Championships.

We also prep for another huge recruiting weekend ahead as MSU is set to host 16 visitors -- who are they and how does this compare to other programs nationally and the Big Ten?
