Just a few short years ago Michigan State was one fateful play away from a Big Ten championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl.
Throughout the 2013 season Mark Dantonio told his team that "you will be the ones" to finally take the program back to the "grandaddy of them all" after a 25 year absence. He even went as far as to pre-record a message from the field in Pasadena months before the start of the 2013 season to show to the team once they locked up their spot. All season the team's motto was "Chase It".
Here's an excellent video highlighting their journey over the past two seasons, complete with some great sound bytes from Dantonio.
