Mike Lantry, 1972
Hopefully not literally. Or figuratively, for that matter.
Did he just tell Denard to go f$&k himself? Dantonio's really rubbed off on him already!
But seriously, it's good to see Arnett back closer to home where he belongs.
Surprise! Surprise? Hmm...
What?? If he sits out a year he wouldn't even have played with Denard. What a doofus
He's most likely to play right away
He submitted a petition for a waiver. Who knows what the NCAA will do.
particularly when I don't beleive it has been decided that he can even play next year. But as was clear from the Detnews article on why kids did not choose UM or MSU, the kids may not always be truthfull about the reasons they chose one place or another.
Thin at WR, and would only play with Denard for one season. Seems to me the MSU logic is already sinking in. Makes no sense.
Maxwell's going to do five yards out of bounds.
great analysis on your college decision bud
If he doesn't want to play for UM, then go away. But his reasoning is ridiculous!
I don't think that's any of his business...
What does that even mean? Does he not want Denard to graduate after this year or something?
The reasoning is illogical on his part.
I would have been happy to get him, but I am not extremely disappointed either.
Well he is already starting to talk like Dantonio. That was quick.
The hell is he talking about?
Nothing like an ability to do basic math.
So many of these kids get so much smoke blown up their butts, it is amazing that some actually make good decisions.
He didn't want to give up playing time to Denard, or he didn't want Denard to pass to him? Which one is it?
I think he meant he wasn't going to have as many opportunities to catch the ball with Denard as QB. Everyone is misinterpreting a rather innocuous statement. What he meant was "Denard is going to do [what] Denard [always does]," i.e., not be a primarily deep passer. Or at least, that's how I parse it, based on watching its etymological usage on "Jersey Shore."
Put some people in front of a camera, and they just really know how to fu** things up (and here, I'm also thinking Brian Kelly).
Not primarily a deep passer? How did we win the Sugar Bowl or beat Notre Dame?
Throw for 2000 yards and 20 touchdowns in his first year in a complex system, showing that the potential to exceed that next year after a year and half practicing this system? And then giving the offense over to Devin Gardner, who some say has the potential to be a more polished passer than Denard and will be hungry to show the world what he can do? And then hand it over to Shane Morris, who has all the tools to be the perfect quarterback for Al Borges?
If that's what he meant by "Denard is gonna do Denard," then I couldn't agree more.
He want's to play RIGHT AWAY. Probably a 3 and done at Michigan State, if he's as good as he thinks he is.
So fvck him .. what do you want me to do , cheer for him. Fvck msu.
The "v" makes it worse.
That comment alone shows why he belongs at STAEEE
Can't wait for Sparty to get taken down at the Big House in 262 days
I am glad he will play for MSU to witness their downfall to us in the coming years. The MSU reign is over and like many before him he won't know what it's like to beat Michigan.
Have fun with mediocrity.
Ah, I'm always looking for reasons to despite MSU personnel. Thank you young Arnett. Embrace your Sparty.
I have to agree, Denard is probably going to do Denard a lot better than the guy MSU is bringing off the bench after 3 years as a backup.
Okay whatever the kid can go to the school he feels most comfortable at, and it's his decision (admittedly a very tough one). Having said that, he's either lying about his reasons or was lied to and is very gullible, because neither one of those makes any sense.
shows how much he knows about being a team player. and shows his selfish side. the team the team the team!
wasn't he the guy who openly favored Devin last year as well?
You just can't please some people...
He picked another school where he feels he has a better opportunity to play his style of football.
Nothing wrong with that.
Except, well, Sparty...
Is this 3 weeks ago? Boy that Sugar Bowl was a fun game.
When Dantonio is at his post-game presser in Ann Arbor this October, and is asked if he is upset about the loss, something tells me that "No; we got DeAnthony Arnett in February" is not going to be his answer.
Sounds like a dirty sparty already...that was fast....
He wasn't bashing Denard, he was simply saying that he is going to run a certain type of offense. That offense, by the way, had a leading receiver of 699 yards and 34 receptions. MSU had 3 WRs leave that had more than that.
Like it or not, Denard had quite a few bad passes this year. The offense wasn't a great offense for WRs. After Denard leaves he is being replaced either by a freshman or another Duel threat that hasn't shown great accuracy yet. MSU, meanwhile, has pretty good QB depth (Maxwell was a pretty good recruit). And while he is a new starter, he is a junior, and a pure passer. Also, he has worked with Maxwell before. Their offense is pretty WR friendly as well. He also has a legit chance to step in and start as their top 3 WRs leave this year.
So basically you guys are all just being really, really overly sensitive about this. He made his choice. It wasn't necessarily a bad one. Michigan is heading towards an offense that would make someone like Arnett choose Michigan over MSU, but they are probably 3 years away from that coming anywhere near full effect. So everyone chill out just because MSU got a good player over Michigan. And also don't say he isn't a pretty good player. Let's of petty and over-sensitive people on this board, particularly for a pretty good day.
You know who else hasn't shown much accuracy (or much of anything)? Maxwell at MSU. You, as well as Mr. Arnett, don't really get it. To say you don't want to go to Michigan because of Denard is questionable because, at most, he would be throwing to him for a year. At MSU, he gets Maxwell, who hasn't done shit. Ever. Here he would follow up Denard with devin, who hasn't shown much yet, but was much higher ranked than Maxwell. Then he would follow that up with the best QB prospect in the nation. At MSU, they have jack and shit behind Maxwell. These are all reasons to question his reasoning. No one really cares he picked them, but his reasoning is just dumb
Clearly this guy is not a pr specialist and clearly he was saying his now arch rivals qb is not a good passer. And clearly this guy has a no ability to see the forest through the trees. Denard will be a headman candidate and his Wrs will get some love. Maybe 600-800 yards of love but it will be b s qualifying love not the gator bowl. Then factor in Gardner and Shane for two years, plus the Playing time opportunity? Guy is clearly to worried about stats and nfl career before qualifying to be able to worry about it. Guess you can't blame a young kid for worrying about only getting 600 yards but I thought that is just what he did at ut last year with a pro stule qb? I love his talent but he sounds like priorities might be ajar Individual stats guys no longer need apply.
