Dienhart: Michigan State Spartans' offseason to-do list

Michigan State is the defending Big Ten champ, coming off the program’s first College Football Playoff appearance.

Big Ten links: Satellite camps, Connor Cook draft slide & more

With satellite camps back on, Ohio State is planning to conduct one at south Florida power St. Thomas Aquinas. According to Cleveland.com, there have been other reports that Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh would like to attend the same day, but that’s not going to happen, as entertaining as that may sound.
