When Michigan State’s Green and White spring game rolls around on April 26, head coach Mark Dantonio wants to see the stadium packed.
Here’s what Dantonio told MLive:
“I want to see 50,000 at the Green and White game. I think that’s where this program needs to go.
“I guess we’ll have to ask the Spartans fans, are we confident or not? I guess we’ll ask them if they are up for it or not. We’ll lay down the challenge.”
Athletic director Mark Hollis concurred:
“I think there’s so many variables that go into a spring game attendance. I know the enthusiasm’s there, I think that was reflected out in Pasadena (Calif.). But if it’s pouring rain, I don’t think we’ll have 50,000, but we might.
“If it’s sunny, I think we have the potential to exceed a number like that. It’s an amazing campus and people have been cooped up in their homes for a long long time, so if we have the blessing of a great day, I think we’ll achieve some very good numbers.”
Spartans, what is your profession? Attend, attend, attend!
