There wasn’t much to complain about last season for the Michigan State Spartans. They went 12-2 but got hammered in the college football playoff semifinal by Alabama. Mark Dantonio has to look for a new quarterback with Connor Cook now at the pro level. Does he go straight back to Tyler O’Connor, who will be a senior and started when Cook was hurt all season? How will running back LJ Scott look in his sophomore season after scoring the winning touchdown in the Big Ten title game to get the Spartans to the playoff? The team’s biggest games are mostly at home with the lone difficult road game being at Notre Dame in mid-September. It will be the early litmus test that Dantonio needs.
