2012 Michigan State Team Preview

Michigan State is coming off back-to-back 11-win seasons for the first time in school history, but apparently not everyone is sold that the Spartans are among the Big Ten’s elite.

In a media poll, Michigan received more than twice as many votes to win the Legends Division and head to the conference title game, despite the fact Michigan State has beaten its rival four straight seasons.

However, sixth-year coach Mark Dantonio hasn’t changed his team’s goal — reaching the Rose Bowl.

“It’s always been our conversation in our locker room,” he said. “I think you have to make your goals and you have to climb a ladder. The first thing that you have to do is you have to get to that championship game before you can go to the Rose Bowl. We were able to do that last year. If you’re fortunate enough to get to the Rose Bowl, that’s when the conversation of a national championship is going to come into play. And so we’ll let things play out.”
