See Marcus Bingham Jr. on the street, standing almost 6 feet, 11 inches tall, and he knows the assumptions you’ll make about his game. See Bingham on the basketball court, and he’ll flip those expectations upside down. He sees himself as more of a – really – big wing in the vein of Kevin Durant and Brandon Ingram than a Tim Duncan-type waiting to fill out his slender frame. “I just look at it as I’m different – like a lot of people that’s 6-11 can’t do what I can do,” Bingham said.

Michigan State only lost one member of its 2017 offense, but it was a big one. Brian Allen was the rock, not only on the offensive line, but for the entire offense. Before Brian Lewerke could take over the team, and even after, it was Allen who was quite literally the driving force for Michigan State. But somehow, even after losing Allen to the NFL, the Spartans offensive line may actually improve in 2018.

The first time I saw Kirk Gibson in the flesh, he was rampaging toward me, near-naked and jeering; the second time, he limped to the plate and hit one of the most dramatic home runs in history. One moment was heinous, the other heroic. In each he seemed unbound by humanity’s usual norms and limits, bigger than life, incomprehensible. Both events occurred three decades ago. Now it was a late-March morning in 2018, and as I approached a dugout, I recognized the broad back of Gibson, sitting alone.

Greg Roy has no regrets. The former Michigan State walk-on guard wanted to play Division I basketball, so he gave up his guaranteed spot at Division III Adrian College to enroll at MSU as a regular student. He made the roster via tryout, and made his debut late in a home blowout of Illinois on Jan. 7, 2016, in a baggy No. 51 jersey with no nameplate. Roy went on to appear in eight games from 2016-17, making one field goal and one free throw in 10 total minutes of play.

In a season where UM dropped three of its last four games as MSU was chasing another double-digit win season, the inspiration factor the Wolverines opted for was…aerating Spartan Stadium’s turf. Everyone in the stadium — save the few players beating their chests like they won another off-season championship — was confused. What did they just do? Why did they do it? Hell, why are we even playing this game?

Ohio State received 191.5 points and 23.5 first-place votes in the division.

Penn State was third with 141.5 points and Michigan was fourth with 140.5 points. The annual Cleveland.com poll, which included 28 writers who cover the conference, serves as the conference’s unofficial preseason poll. The Big Ten does not conduct an official preseason poll.

While Mark Dantonio has made Michigan State a perennial contender in the Big Ten in his 11 seasons leading the Spartans, he’s hardly done so with the luxury of picking from the best of the best when it comes to recruiting. That indulgence is available to only a few teams — namely Alabama and Ohio State. However, Dantonio and his staff have become as adept as any at finding the player overlooked by most, a “diamond in the rough” that comes with few stars but fits the Spartans’ system.

Among the first tasks for Michigan State’s freshmen upon arriving on campus earlier this summer was to hop on a scale for their first official weigh-in as a member of the team. And for three of those freshmen, a second task came shortly thereafter: make that number on the scale bigger. For three of Michigan State’s incoming freshmen — Foster Loyer, Gabe Brown and Marcus Bingham — putting on more weight has been a key offseason emphasis on the road to potential playing time in 2018-19.
