With a few returning players and some key additions, the tight end position could turn the corner in 2021. Since Josiah Price’s departure from the program, Michigan State has struggled to find much consistency at the tight end position. Price is the Spartans’ all-time leader in career touchdown receptions for a tight end and will be remembered as one of the best in program history.

The Spartans return three starting defensive linemen, experienced depth behind them and made a notable addition from the transfer portal. Although their run defense and pass rush declined last year, Michigan State will look for those numbers to improve with the defensive line appearing to be a strength heading into the fall.

Sometimes it’s a text message late at night, when one of them can’t sleep. Or a phone call when the pain is intense or the sorrow overwhelming. Renee Hill and Karen Sadler are living a shared experience they wouldn’t wish upon anyone — navigating life in the years after losing a child. You likely remember their sons.

The Spartans coughed the ball up more than just about everyone in college football, averaging a turnover about once every five possessions. That’s just not a sustainable number for a team that’s hoping to turn things around and get back on track offensively and it’s why the offense was so horrid against the likes of Iowa, Rutgers, Indiana, and Ohio State.

It is no secret that the Michigan State Spartans have struggled to run the football for several consecutive seasons, including last season when MSU averaged just 91.4 yards per game (ranking 122nd out of 127 FBS teams) and a mere 2.68 yards per carry (ranking 124th). In fact, the Spartans didn’t have a single running back on the roster who scored a rushing touchdown in 2020.

The Spartans return their top four wide receivers in terms of production, along with promising youth and veteran depth, to go with additions from recruiting and the transfer portal.

Summer is here and the time is right…for crunching some numbers related to college football. Over the years, I have developed a rather complex system for analyzing an upcoming college football season. Now that we are into the month of July and the preseason magazines have hit the stands, it is time to break out the slide rule and see what insights we can gain about the 2021 season.

The Spartans went just 2-5 in his first season, but the slack had to be cut because he didn’t get an offseason and was hired after National Signing Day. Not only did he not get to practice with his team last spring and most of the fall, but he couldn’t recruit face-to-face because of a pandemic and still managed to piece together a decent class. Now the Spartans are looking like a capable squad after all the needed attrition and additions via the transfer portal and in recruiting.

No team scored fewer points in the Big Ten than Michigan State did (18.0) or averaged fewer yards of total offense (330.6). The Spartans hope to have addressed the root of the problem by changing quarterbacks and spending a busy offseason in the transfer portal.
