“His toughness aspect has got to come,” Dantonio said on Monday at Big Ten media days. “You can’t be a wideout, mentality-wise. He has a skill set that is up here. So when you have that kind of skillset, everything needs to come with you to be a complete player.”

Dantonio has repeatedly described last season in the same way, as an anomaly. And, there is evidence to back him up. In 2007 he took over a program coming off three straight losing seasons and has posted a combined record of 90-42. He has had just two losing seasons in that time, a trio of Big Ten titles, a Rose Bowl victory and went 36-5 in the three years combined prior to last.

Big Ten Media Days are complete and Michigan State is just five days away from opening fall camp. The Spartans and coach Mark Dantonio are in a much different position than a year ago when they were coming off a Big Ten title and trip to the College Football Playoff. They’re now looking to rebound from a 3-9 record and tumultuous offseason in which four players were kicked off the team and are facing criminal sexual conduct charges.

Michigan State’s freshman class is less than a week away from taking the field for the start of its first fall camp and they won’t be there to simply watch and learn. “I think we have a lot of players that have the potential of getting on our football field early in their career. … I’m very impressed,” Dantonio said Monday during Big Ten Media Days in Chicago. “As I’ve said – maturity, discipline.”

“We don’t want a team with five leaders talking,” Frey said. “We want a team where nobody is afraid to stand up and say their mind. We want everybody to have their own voice and speak their own mind.” MSU is trying to fix a mind-set.“We are working on bringing back the Spartan Dawg mentality,” Frey said. “There has been a lot of people who have talked recently. There have been freshmen who stand up and say something.”

After the 2016 season, a class of 14 players looked like the maximum. Then came the mass exodus of players with remaining eligibility, either by dismissal, transfer or early departure to the NFL. The room in Michigan State’s 2018 class continued to grow. Now that the Spartans’ current roster looks set, Dantonio comfortably projected that the 2018 class will “probably be around 20 or 21” players when National Signing Day comes around.

There were no promises coming from Mark Dantonio on Monday, no guarantees about what might transpire over the next few months. The Michigan State coach took the podium at Big Ten media days ready to deal with plenty of questions, and few were about the wild success he has brought to East Lansing since taking over in 2007. Instead, the focus during nearly two hours of questioning was about a dismal 3-9 record in 2016 and the miserable offseason that followed.
