The Spartans are in the enviable position of returning both a reliable kicker and punter. Sophomore Matt Coghlin made 15 of 19 field goals, including 5 of 7 from 40 yards out. Senior punter Jake Hartbarger, who was dynamic early last season with ball placement, has a booming leg that doesn’t always show up. The questions with the special teams units are more about the return game. MSU hasn’t scared anybody with a returner since Keshawn Martin left campus after 2011.
