The media switcheroo that has annointed Dantonio, has me wondering how long this guy has a free run at MSU. He has done a nice job of winning the media war with his tough talk, but the reality is that his resume is sorely lacking. Here is what I see so far.
Sounds tough with family values and discipline.
Team has had as many off the field troubles as ever.
Sounds tough we want to win running the ball and defense.
Can't run the ball, passed well and defense has been up and down.
Beat Michigan twice.
Folded huge in almost every other big game.
Fell well short of preseason expectations last year.
I was curious if they lose to Michigan this year and finish 5-7 does he just keep plodding along or does he feel the heat? Personally I think he is a decent coach and doing a good job for Sparty, but I find it amazing the difference in perception between him and John L when other than the Michigan wins(which could have gone either way for both of these guys and Dantonio has faced much worse Mich teams so you could say MSU actually performed better against Mich under John L)they are strikingly similar on the field and you could say maybe more disciplined under John L off the field.
