Fall camp has begun and Michigan State football is entering the 2023 season with tempered expectations after going 5-7 last year.
For the Spartans to exceed expectations, they’ll need to have an injury-free fall camp while finding the right quarterback to lead the offense. This team’s potential is high but the floor is also low if they can’t get things figured out.
Here are the three storylines I’ll be following throughout fall camp.
3. Can the Spartans stay healthy?
Last year, there was a major issue early on when it came to health. The Spartans couldn’t seem to stay healthy as seemingly dozens of key players went down with injuries. Not only did key players go down, but the backups suffered injuries, too.
By the end of the season, Michigan State was left with a depleted roster.
Mel Tucker has been open about limiting injuries this season during fall camp and I’m curious to see if his new approach keeps the team healthy.
If Michigan State can stay healthy through fall camp and head into the season with some depth and no major injuries, I feel good about this team’s chances to exceed expectations. It’s when the injuries start piling up that I am pessimistic.
