Michigan State will be entering their 2012 football season with the highest of expectations.
They will be returning to the field as defending Legends Division champions as well as Outback Bowl champions. Mark Dantonio, going on his sixth year as head coach, has done some great work at Michigan State.
With all of the past accomplishments behind him, he and his staff know that the most important move for the program is to continue the forward progress. The end goal is to produce a program that competes for championships on a yearly basis, and that seems to be in reach for Dantonio and his Spartans.
Now that spring practices have ended, the team begins to map out their schemes and plans to repeat another successful season. They will be introduced to new challenges that they hope to overcome as well as goals they wish to achieve.
Here are some possible outcomes the Spartans are hoping to experience and others they would prefer to avoid.
