Later this month, the 2019 college football regular season will begin.

Michigan State’s season begins on Aug. 30 at home against Tulsa. Currently, though, it’s time for fall camp.

Coaches around the country are getting a feel for how their teams are looking now that it’s getting to crunch time. Maybe the QB is looking better than expected. Maybe the defense doesn’t look as crisp.

Perhaps the offensive line is looking more gelled as a unit. Whatever it is, coaches are forming their thoughts on their teams.

On Monday, Mark Dantonio spoke with the media about numerous different topics. One, of course, was about the offense and QB Brian Lewerke:

What does this really say about the offense? Everybody knows that the Spartans’ offense a year ago was bad. And bad is probably a positive spin on it.

Lewerke has to get better, but in general, the whole offense needs to get both better and healthier. Dantonio pointing out that Lewerke has to create this season could lead one to believe that the offensive line ahead of him won’t be fantastic.

Imagine if your QB is forced to have to create in order to be successful. That’s not necessarily a positive comment.

Here was Dantonio about the offense altogether:

Dantonio is obviously holding back here. He has his thoughts, and things may be changed around a bit.

Regardless, change is necessary. And we’ll see what Michigan State has been up to against Tulsa later this month.
