There's a reason as to why the Michigan State Spartans are almost always considered capable of winning an NCAA national championship: coaching. 

Starting with Tom Izzo, a Spartans cornerstone, Michigan State has leadership second to none—at any level. Izzo is arguably one of the finest coaches in all of basketball, not just at the collegiate level. 

That being said, count that as a factor that revs the Spartans' engine heading into 2013-14, a season in which they're once again among favorites to conquer the Final Four. 

The Spartans have two returning stars in sophomore guard Gary Harris and senior forward/center Adreian Payne that have conference player of the year potential—the lack of offensive firepower shouldn't be a problem for Izzo this season. 

This slideshow will examine other strengths that could drive Michigan State to Cowboys Stadium in April.
