No other team in college football is more anxious to forget about the 2012 season and start fresh once again in 2013 more than the Michigan State Spartans.
After finishing nonconference play with a 3-1 record, Michigan State could not get anything to go its way against teams from the Big Ten Conference. The Spartans finished 3-5 in league play, but their losses came by a combined 13 points.
The Green and White capped a roller-coaster year off with a 17-16 victory over the TCU Horned Frogs in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl, which should do wonders for Michigan State's confidence and morale as it prepares for the upcoming campaign.
Do not expect to find the Spartans in any of the preseason polls leading up to this season either. Michigan State did not receive a single vote in the national rankings after starting last year as the No. 13 team in the country.
All that being said, what are some realistic goals for the Spartans this year? Click ahead to find out!
