That message board is down right scary. Delusion , it's in the red cedar.
i like 'em both
That message board is down right scary. Delusion , it's in the red cedar.
FWIW, I checked out the poster's email address and he does appear to be a Michigan high school football coach who would have been in the room for this.
speedy turn around and who is giving the deuces behind dantonio?
are correct, sir. Sparty Shore.
Pretty sure it's Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
I think I love you.
Was it too soon for that? I'm sorry. That was awkward, wasn't it?
Stay Class Sparty
Hecklinski? More like Heckling-Me!
I am dying to see a video or hear an audio of this.
Detnews and Freep both up with articles of the incident. Looks like this one just might have some legs
Who is this Charboneau guy that wrote that? It's pretty subtly proDantonio. Doesn't mention the fact that Dantonio already had a chance to speak before that, and it says it was a forum, as if to suggest that all the coaches were supposed to be involved but Hecklinski was stealing the show. It was a speech. If it was an open forum I think the organizers would have probably had all the other coaches onstage already don't you? Dantonio really is the douchiest of them all.
Ps. Does anyone else have a problem clicking on detnews links? Every time I click them my browser shuts down and I have to reset it... This is actually the first time it didn't happen, but when I clicked the link again a second time it shut down. Not very tech savvy over here but that seems strange to me.
Honestly, all the articles are really wishy washy on the details. It doesn't really sound like any of the authors were actually there, just second hand reports and quoting of the MLive article. It really just seems like they don't have a good handle on the specifics of the situation rather than any bias one way or the other.
Seems like it was a time for all the coaches to briefly introduce themselves and Heck went on to give a presentation/speech before the actual panel started. Too much biased opinion out there bending this one way or another. Misunderstanding on all sides is what it seems to boild down to. An actualy video/audio of this panel would clear this all up for everyone.
He's a joke
I believe Charboneau is the MSU writer just like Chengelis is the Michigan writer for the Detroit News.
Chengelis knows she is writing for the News. Charboneau on the other hand, acts more like an MSU employee.
Mark Dantonio is going to need surgery to re-attach his dick after stepping on it so violently in front of so many people whose good regard he needs. People who are going to be furiously texting, emailing, and talking about his ridiculous little snit for weeks and months.
I would flat out call Dantonio a douche to his face. I know people always say, "Yeah it would be different if you met the person face to face, blah blah."
Not this situation, I would rip into this guy.
Is there going to be video of this somewhere? I'd love to pass it around to some of my Sparty acquaintances.
...and his flamming bag of butthurt twords Michigan.
And not surprisingly, their reactions are ZOMG DANTONIO IS SO AWESOME FOR STANDING UP TO BIG BROTHER YEAH WE'RE DONE TAKING SHIT FROM scUM!!!!!!
I actually can't wait until we blow them out in the big house next year. Dantionio might be my least favorite sports figure in the world right now. The dude actually has a half-way decent team but he's so angry at Mike Hart still that he won't even smile.. no wonder he has health issues. That isn't healthy!
You've had two good seasons. Don't forget the losing record you put up 3 years ago. I'd be concerned about your slipping basketball program. Your Football program has never mattered and it never will. Your coaches are getting to be downright embarrassing.
Once again, a Michigan coach shows decorum when none is given in kind by a coach for our much-esteemed in-state rival. Scenes like this make me love my alma mater even more, as she taught me to be a better person than that, among other things.
The Det news version makes Dantonio look curiously in the right. it at least leaves room for it. Curious how Hecklinski was made to look like he got his hand caught in the cookie jar.
From this account, he appears ridiculously juvenile. I wonder if this verson will appear in the media. I am so sick of spin. I just hope the story comes out and puts Dantonio in him place.
It's never too late to edit Dantonio's wikipedia page regarding the incident.
Regardless of how it gets spun by the media, what matters is how it was perceived by those in attendance in that room. If MD looked like as much of a douche as the OP indicated, then the damage is done, and that could affect recruiting in the only place in the country where at least a few people give a shit about MSU.
Immature, but funny none the less. I never liked the little brother comment when it first came out, but in hind sight, it was genius.
The MSU culture has evolved into a community of insecure people. It's sad really.
It's great to be a Michigan Wolverine!
around here, they have always been insecure. They just have a poster child now.
It's never been about what they accomplish its always been about how it compared to Michigan.
Which is why they will always be Little Brother no matter what happens on the field
Not only did I grow up in Lansing but I was a State fan until it came time to pick a college. Then I got serious and turned from green to blue and haven't looked back since. But yeah, they should have a picture of Sparty as the definition of "inferiority complex."
I was supposed to head down to the clinic. Four of the guys I coach with made the trip. I'm disappointed that I missed more than just the bars tonight.
Glad that UM took the high road in this especially when MSU always tries to take the low road.
Appear to be the ultimate Woody Hayes Wannabees. But Woody won big for a long time Dickhead Dantonio.
Izzo, I don't get it. I am waiting for his tackling an opponent that is on a fast break.
Kickin' in the front seat
Kickin in the back seat
Which seat should I take . . .
Wonder if Dantonio would have tried that if Hoke was talking...
Anyways, this is a partisan Rorschach test. It does display to high school coaches what their kids will be getting themselves into though.
Hoke would have pointed at him and Dantonio's last two 4-star recruits would have disappeared.
This USA Today article puts him in a worse light than the OP. Seems like the event organizer went on to kiss his ass though, trying to smooth it over for him.
Dantonio = Kanye West
Jeff, I'm really happy for you and I'll let you finish, but MSU recruits nationally now!
Here is what I do not get... If you really wanted to be the smart coach, you would pay attention to what your rival has to say... write it down, go home and figure out the weaknesses and benefit from those weaknesses.
The coaching staff in E.L. has the same maturity level as the elementary school down the road from me...
This is the kind of guy that when you get to 48 points, you go for two to put 50 on him.
USA Today has a story about the incident, and Dantonio comes out as dickish as you would expect, and I certainly would see why coaches would be a little taken aback.
Not only did Dantonio give a 15 minute presentation, but he was supposed to leave after he was done with that.
Wow. I had assumed that this whole thing might have been getting slightly exaggerated, but if those are anything close to direct quotes, that's damning.
"OK, here's what we're going to do," Dantonio said. "We're going to get other people up here. We're going to talk about more than the University of Michigan.
"How many guys got a guy that's going to play in the Big Ten?" Dantonio asked the high school coaches. After a couple raised their hands, Dantonio said: "One, two - so the two guys can go back there in the corner and talk about that. All of us right here, we're going to talk about recruiting for everybody. Let's go."
To interrupt a guy in the middle of a presentation point blank like that as if he's the king of the conference is simply unprofessional no matter what way you look at it. And that's putting it nicely. Especially in the way he did it.
Inferiority complex much?
What a dumb ass. If he was smart he would have been taking notes.
