With that Butch Davis back in the picture and Tuberville slapping graduate assistants live, starting a player straight out of jail or making cracks at an opposing players height isn't an issue anymore. Or ever was, according to some MSU fans.
Also, Dantonio probably knows by now he's at a huge recruiting disadvantage with Hoke and Meyer offering every elite player in sight, and if Bielema can get hired at 3 million plus a year, he's not gonna be there much longer.
Odds on him opening 2014 as MSU's coach? If not what school could fire their HC next year look for a defensive minded coach?
