Football impact89fm.org —  Last season, Michigan State planned to build on its record-breaking 2014 juggernaut offense by returning a Heisman-contending quarterback in Connor Cook, a stout offensive line and a future 1,000 yard receiver in Aaron Burbridge. Surprisingly, that was not the case at all. In contrast to 2014, MSU lost 115 yards per game, 83.9 rushing yards per game, and 13.2 points per game.

Football michiganstate.247sports.com —  The Michigan State Spartans might have had their most talented offensive line of the Mark Dantonio era in 2015, producing two All-Americans, two NFL Draft picks and another player who was signed as an undrafted free agent. With that talent gone, concerns about the offensive line might even overshadow concerns about replacing Connor Cook, the winningest quarterback in school history. Dantonio, though, is not one of those people worried about the Spartans offensive front.

Football mlive.com —  To understand Michigan State's current timeline for naming a starting quarterback for 2016, you have to go back to 2012. Kirk Cousins had just departed after three years as the Spartans starter, and the Michigan State coaching staff moved quickly to name Andrew Maxwell as his replacement. The decision was made before spring practice started, and Maxwell spent six months as the starting quarterback before he played a game. When he did play a game, things didn't go well: Maxwell struggled as Michigan State went 7-6 in 2012. He eventually lost the job to Connor Cook in 2013.

Football freep.com —  The last time Mark Dantonio ushered in a new quarterback, he had a team good enough to win the national championship. We just didn’t know it. Neither did he. Or maybe Dantonio did know, but felt like his all-world defense that season — 2013 — was so good he could get by with a game-manager at QB instead of a playmaker. We’ll never know how that season might have turned out if Connor Cook had begun August as the starter instead of Andrew Maxwell.
