Michigan State Using Tony Lippett As Scout Team Denard Robinson

I don't know if there is anybody out there that can truly mimic Denard Robinson's speed and shiftiness, but Michigan State is trying its best to replicate what they will see on Saturday in practice by having Tony Lippett play Shoelace for the scout team.

"He was a spread-type quarterback in high school," Dantonio said. "He's extremely quick. Good burst, those types of things. Denard is an outstanding player. He makes people miss. The one thing about playing him, if he makes a guy miss, he has the ability to go the distance." 

Lippett ran track in high school and is expected to redshirt this season.
