With his name surfacing again as some coaches got the quick axe I was wondering if he is overrated or not? I don't have any inside info but I've wondered about this the last few years as the MSU defense has emerged. Dantonio was a defensive guru. He lead some of Tressel's best defenses. Is Narduzzi just benefitting from his mentor? He may be great but if I was a big time program I would have that doubt in the back of my mind. I'm not sure how much Dantonio is involved with the D but I would think he's very involved. It reminds me a little of the Rich Rod/Calvin Mcgee dynamic. I'm not trusting Calvin until he proves it by himself. what do you guys think and does anyone have a more intimate knowlege of how much of this is Narduzzi's defense.
this may be of some local interest
