07:12 AM ET 05.23 | Big Ten fans may want to remember the name of freshman quarterback Damion Terry. There's been a lot of buzz about [Terry] because of his athletic ability and the fact that the Spartans want their signal-caller to be mobile in this evolving offense. While incumbent Andrew Maxwell is not guaranteed a starting job in the fall, there was a lot of positive talk coming out of East Lansing this spring [about Maxwell]. ... [Mark Dantonio] made his QBs "live" this spring, and that seemed to help Maxwell prepare for the rigors of another Big Ten season as a starter. However, Terry certainly could have packages developed for him if he masters the mental side of the offense. It would take a disastrous preseason camp, though, for Maxwell to not start the season opener.

He doesnt tie his shoes as well?

You asking me? Don't you think DS would have a little better info on this?

Gators are only good for untying shoes in a pile, also gouging eyes.

Maxwell starts the year well. His stats are better than ever, and his leadership skills are manifest. He leads the Spartans to an unblemished beginning, hard fought, with slim margins of victory. Then, tragedy strikes mid-game! An injury Maxwell will not likely recover from before the end of the season. Terry comes off the bench and sparks the Spartans to overwhelm their opponents by three scores. It continues as the season plays out. Terry finds a way to win, even in games that seem to be lost. The Spartans make it to the B1G CCG...

Now, let's see who that brings to the thread. ;-)

Thanks for all the votes of confidence. Dantonio loves to red shirt freshmen. Of the current 68 returning scholly players, only 8 did not red shirt. I will be shocked if Terry sees the field this year. If Maxwell falters, Cook will be next Spartan up.

Well, in that case, God keep Maxwell hail and hearty!
