Michigan State Spartans Football Details
While Michigan State has won six national championships in program history (1951, 1952, 1955, 1957, 1965, 1966), most people considered it a basketball school until recently. That, however, changed drastically after Mark Dantonio came on as head coach. Heading into 2017, Dantonio is 90-42 in 10 seasons with the Spartans. (A number that includes last year’s disappointing 3-9 campaign.) Under Dantonio’s watch, Michigan State has had five seasons with 10 or more wins. The Spartans made the College Football Playoff in 2015, and they also won the Rose Bowl in 2013. East Lansing is now a city that features both elite basketball and football teams, and fans should do everything they can to come out and see this group play at Spartan Stadium this season.
Michigan State had a down year in 2016, but that is just a blip for this Spartans squad. They were a bit younger than usual a year ago, but their talented underclassmen got some much-needed experience. Under center for the offense is quarterback Brian Lewerke. He is one of Dantonio’s favorite players, and this team should be improved at the position this season. The majority of the offense will, however, come from running back LJ Scott. In Scott’s first two years with the team, he rushed for 1,698 yards with 17 touchdowns. His coaches often compare him to Le’Veon Bell, and Scott does possess that same explosive style of running. His biggest issue is his stamina, but it has gotten a lot better over the years. Scott’s ability to move the chains also does wonders for a Michigan State defense that has been top notch in the past decade.
