Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio said the Spartans would have won the National Championship last year if the playoff system had been in place.
"I thought we would have been national champions, to be perfectly honest with you," Dantonio told reporters at Big Ten media days. "I think we would have had a shot to do that because I think we were playing, coming out of the end of the season -- that stretch coming out of the season -- we were playing great football and we were believing in ourselves." The Spartans, ranked fourth in the final BCS standings after beating Ohio State in the Big Ten Championship game, likely would have been selected into the four-team field. But MSU would have had to run through a gauntlet that (presumably) included eventual BCS champion Florida State, SEC champion Auburn and 11-1 Alabama. Stanford ranked fifth in the final BCS standings, with Baylor finishing sixth. MSU's offense could be scary in 2014, but they must replace defensive stalwarts such as Darqueze Dennard, Max Bullough and Denicos Allen. Jul 30 - 4:45 PM
