As one of the favorites to win the national title in 2014, Michigan State will be a team adored by its fans and disliked by opponents.
With stars such as center/forward Adreian Payne, shooting guard Gary Harris and point guard Keith Appling returning, Spartans coach Tom Izzo has a capable core that's more than qualified to dominate the Big 10.
The Spartans also have a strong supporting cast: guard Travis Trice, guard Denzel Valentine and forwards Matt Costello and Alex Gauna.
What's not to like about that?
Throw in wildcards Kenny Kaminski and 2013 recruits Gavin Schilling and Alvin Ellis, and Izzo appears to have a team ready to run through March.
