O'Connor trying to emerge as Cook's successor at Michigan St - Yahoo Sports
''The background of my phone has been the goals that I've had for this spring,'' the Michigan State quarterback said. ''I do feel like I've accomplished those things, so I feel very good.'' O'Connor wrapped up spring practice Saturday, throwing for 138 yards and a touchdown in the Spartans' spring game. His Green team lost 14-11 to the White team, but O'Connor put up the best passing numbers of any of the quarterbacks. With Michigan State needing to replace NFL-bound star Connor Cook , the spotlight will be on O'Connor as the season approaches. And those goals? They're about what you'd expect from somebody trying to become a starting quarterback. ''I wanted to be the man on offense. I wanted to be the man on the team. I wanted to be the guy that someone could come to on and off the field,'' O'Connor said. ''Be more consistent, be more accurate and then, obviously, school as well.'' Cook's departure leaves Michigan State facing uncertainty at the quarterback position for the first time in a while, and that might be the biggest threat to the team's run of recent success. The Spartans have won at least 11 games in five of the past six seasons.
