Mark Dantonio has been preaching resiliency long before he was the head coach at Michigan State.
Each week, he references adversity multiple times during his press conference, so one can only imagine how much his players hear it during the week.
The Spartans now face the most adversity of the young season as they enter Big Ten play after their first loss of the season.
The conference opener against Iowa is that chance to not let things slide the way they did a season ago.
In our weekly one-on-one with Dantonio, he discusses his relationship with Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, why the Hawkeyes and Spartans are so similar, and how he hopes his young players learn from their mistakes this week.
