"There's a multitude of questions surrounding Michigan State's offense, and the coordinator changes are among them. While Bollman's hiring was greeted mostly with skepticism, it's important to note that Dave Warner will call the offensive plays. It's fair to ask whether Michigan State has modernized its offense enough, and we'll learn more this fall, but few complained about the Spartans' offensive structure in 2011, when the team won the Legends division and the Outback Bowl. I wouldn't expect that structure to change much under Warner, who worked under Dan Roushar and has been on the staff for years. But Michigan State's coaches also are stressing the quarterback run more, and the need for quarterbacks to improvise when plays break down rather than always waiting for plays to develop. Offensive creativity is a must in today's college football, and Michigan State needs to move more in that direction."
