San Jose State Media Day Wrap Up
What did San Jose State do on the first or two media days?

Live coverage of the summit got underway when student-athletes took part of the 2017 Social Media Room. The San José State show featuring Andre Chachere and Nate Velichko aired on Facebook Live Monday night.
Chachere and Velichko played some games in the Social Media Room. The duo had a lot of fun playing games and even had a thumb war. A female reporter asked them if their mother was watching this, and they both looked flabbergasted, asking “Wait, what? Uhh…I don’t know.”
San Jose State head coach Brent Brennan was also in attendance.
Despite all the fun and games, this is a reason why the Spartans aren’t playing for one of the Power Five conferences (The Big Ten Conference, The Big 12 Conference, The Atlantic Coast Conference, The Pac-12 Conference, and The Southeastern Conference).
Take, for example, the amusing yet inadequate moment starting at the 2:50 mark. Chachere handed the football to Velichko, who described what was a basic play—slide the linebackers down and cut through all of the defense to score a touchdown.
Both guys are seniors this season. Chachere returns as a cornerback whileVelichko remains as an offensive lineman. In terms of honors, He was named to the Bronko Nagurski Trophy preseason watch list as a candidate for the best defensive player in NCAA football and the Paycom Jim Thorpe Award as one of 45 defensive backs while Velichko was named to the Wuerffel Trophy watch list as one of 108 players from the Football Bowl Subdivision. Anyway, these two guys did a good job for their team.
Brennan has a lot of work to do as the Spartans hold a 38-61 record with two bowl appearances during the past eight seasons. He’s reportedly still looking for a star quarterback to lead the team.
