SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - There's a lot more new at San Jose State during this year's spring football session than just the head coach.
Ron Caragher also has to deal with some lofty expectations for the Spartans in his first year since replacing Mike McIntyre as coach in San Jose.
With the Spartans bringing back star quarterback David Fales from a team that won a school-record tying 11 games, earned the first national ranking since 1975 and got the sixth bowl win in school history, San Jose State will no longer be an overlooked team. And they'll be playing their first season in the Mountain West Conference.
The players who endured a one-win season in 2010 relish the new scrutiny.
