Spartans return to practice field with a ‘sense of urgency’

The Michigan State football team returned to the practice field on Monday for the first time since the Big Ten Conference announced last Wednesday that the 2020 season would begin on Oct. 24.

The Spartans had been in the midst of a strength and conditioning program that began on Aug. 12, the day after the Big Ten postponed the season on Aug. 11. MSU held workouts last Thursday, Friday and Saturday before resuming practice on Monday for more than two hours in helmets, jerseys and shorts.

"It feels great to get back out on the grass with the team," said Spartan head coach Mel Tucker. "The guys were into it. We got a lot out of the practice today. Just a really good sense of urgency, attention to detail; we got a long ways to go, but I feel that we made a good step today."
