Michigan State enters the 2018 season with some pretty high expectations to meet. So don’t blame starting quarterback Brian Lewerke if he’s a little peeved that things didn’t go too well at the team’s first scrimmage.

Lewerke spoke with the media following the Spartans’ first scrimmage on Tuesday, and he wasn’t too happy with how the offense performed. Though he understands that the offense isn’t always clicking at this point in the year, the returning starter would still like things to run a little smoother.

“It was a little frustrating for me,” Lewerke said in a video posted by MLive.com. “Still need to start clicking on offense. But that’s why we practice, that’s why we’re here, to fix those things.

“Offense just struggled a little bit, but it’s stuff you’ve got to fix. We’ll hopefully be able to do better in the next one.”

Lewerke didn’t go into much detail regarding the scrimmage or describe what issues his unit was having, but he certainly knows the offense can be more proficient.

“Just not finding a rhythm,” Lewerke said. “Couldn’t really pass the ball, couldn’t run the ball very well. Just all around.”

Fortunately for Lewerke and the rest of the offense, the Spartans still have a few weeks to make the necessary tweaks and start operating a little smoother.

Michigan State opens the 2018 season on Friday, Aug. 31 at Spartans Stadium against Utah State.
