Publish date:

The Big Ten college football season is less than a month away, which means the Michigan State Spartans are closer to kicking off their week one matchup against Rutgers. 

How will the team look? Will the league face any COVID-19 battles like many sports around the country already have? 

We'll have to wait and see. 

However, there are rumors this is the most conditioned Michigan State football team in years. 

Following the Big Ten's decision to postpone the season initially, MSU joined strength and conditioning coach Jason Novak for a six-week training regimen in the weight room. 

Fans are eager to see the results of the extra time given to the Spartans before the league changed their minds. 

Spartan Nation publisher Hondo S. Carpenter, Sr., and Spartan Nation senior writer Jon Schopp are here to discuss the state of Michigan State recruiting. 

When Mel Tucker arrived, he brought an abundance of recruiting experience with him. Due to his coaching history, the Spartans now have a national reach, which MSU fans haven't seen in a very long time. 

Schopp believes the Spartans are in a position to reap the benefits of Tucker's abilities, something that is evident by the momentum he's gained in recent weeks.
