Tedford names Riley the starter

Per Okanes at Bear Talk. Both quarterbacks will play no doubt, and Nate will be the best backup in the nation. I have said for two years that the 2009 team will be a sight to behold. Giving Riley a season under his belt will only make that more likely.

I also think this gives Michigan State a lot more to think about this week, since there is less film on Riley. Plus Tedford told me at the Coaches' Tour event this summer that they didn't install much of the playbook when Riley played in the Oregon State and Air Force games last year. That makes a lot of the Riley film pretty useless for the Spartan defensive coaches.

Good call by coach, as usual.
