Tennessee is not recruiting well just because they got 18 dudes
That is all
What happened to the comment I replied to...
lol at nfl level defense
I've been wondering for a while how he hasn't gotten snapped up for bigger things. I've never believed that Dantonio is the brains behind the operation. I think Narduzzi has had this team over its level for a sustained period now.
... When OSU beat "unbeatable" Miami... D'Antonio knows Defense and is a Tressel disciple... And look what U of M did with him for 10 years...
This offense looks absolutely pathetic for having 2 weeks to prepare for this game. Completely unacceptable.
Maybe they'll hire Borges as a tackling dummy.
Anything to get him away from MSU.
I'm not sure he has the persona for those jobs. He'll probably go to a middle pack type program like a ASU, Oregon State, UNC, etc
Why do that unless he is unhappy living in the city of East Lansing? If he does what you say that is a lateral move. He would have to start all over again and why do that.
Personally I'd rather have a greater number of good programs in the Big Ten and have Michigan be the leader of that rather then have the Big Ten suck and for us to lead a bad conference and then get smacked around in the non con and bowl seasons.
Head coach at BCS school is far better job than Sparty DC
I think he is just letting his players play...he's not over coaching them and making them think too much about technique..they are just playing football...we over coach and take the aggression away making them think about what to do before they do it and it slows our players down..
He's not going anywhere. He gets off on ruining our lives.
Fuck that - we should!!!
i want him to stay at msu, and i want us to beat the crap out of them.
if we can't, well, then we just aren't the michigan we think we are.
We aren't the Michigan we think we are.
We're exactly the Michigan a lot of us think we are. You would have had to ignore the previous half of the season to think otherwise
I want Narduzzi at sparty for forever. Shame on us for starting a thread about being pissed he is still the D coordinator at sparty. Awful. Embarrassing. We shouldn't be wishing him away. I hope he stays and it forces us to elevate our level of play.
also, MSU's defense is literally the best college defense I have never seen.
It's our O line
Let's see them go up against Oregon then we can talk. Sadly the possibility of that this year isn't entirely unrealistic.
MSU's defense is literally the best college defense I have never seen.
Where were you in 1997?
U of M is just weak. Don't attribute today's game to the best college defense you've ever seen. Bama of recent years, old Miami, LSU, ... Way better... U of M is just not very good...
This game is sealing the deal that he's not there next year. I'm hoping this is Michigan States last year at a shot at a Rose bowl.
I'd like to be the first to tell you that St. Urban is going to put up 40 on that defense in the B1G CCG. I don't like either team winning but that's what is going to happen.
I'll be taking tOSU and whatever the hell the points are (probably tOSU by 12).
still be below their average. No, this Sparty team is for real; I think they are going to be more of a challenge to OSU than you think.
They can take Borges with them as well
Is this a question or statement?
We should hire him!
Do you remember earlier this week when I said how good he was, everyone was saying he was not a great coach? Pepperidge Farm remembers.
I know. Where are all the MGoIdiots who thought we were going to put up 28-35 points on MSU?
Narduzzi would be the worst recruiter either of those programs have ever seen. Can you imagine him winning over a mother in a recruit's living room? He's a dick. He can recruit 3 stars and low 4 stars because for the most part they don't have better offers or they want to be part of a good defense. 5 stars know they can be part of a good defense somewhere else and not play for a dick. Same thing goes for Dantonio. The only place he's going is to a different D-Coordinator job or the head coach of MSU.
Every SEC coach is a dick, but they can still recruit. Prestige helps.
Narduzzi is not one of them
Saban is a huge prick, doesn't seem to stop him. You make a player better they will go there. Proof is in the pudding. Family-style coaching may be getting us recruits but no translation to the field. We got outcoached.
Saban is or appears to be a huge prick to the outside world. However, I think if you look at recruit reactions and player statements, I think you would find that he is plenty personable in person. You don't garner the jobs, success and the allegiance he has without being able to work a room and relate to people.
Saban is like a less friendly version of Bill Belichick. Belichick is a dick to reporters and such, but behind closed doors, he's hilarious and extremely personable. Saban strikes me as somewhat similar to that in appearances, but probably less friendly and more serious.
most of the good coaches are dicks. People want to play for winners.
True, most are but not all. Belicheck is kind of a dick, especially to the general media during pressers, but for the most part, a few of the media who have gotten to know him on a more personal level and have more access to Pats practices say he is actually a great guy to be around.
I went to State. $atan is a dick. Sorry to interrupt.
That's terrible. I want him gone, but I'm not wishing that on anyone.
Again, fuck you. Also, kindly leave.
Pro tip: Stop drinking.
Edit: the guys that i was replying to got banned.
Fuck you man. That's not funny at all to wish that on anyone. Not cool.
The worst thing I have ever seen on this blog
Have fun in bolivia.
You're taking this game way too seriously
Go for a walk and get some air, dude.
Go to hell.
Wow. Worst comment ever?
Yup, that one-upped the child-support comment from the AP thread.
Jesus, dude. Why don't you go have a seat in East Lansing for a while. Cheering for injury? They'd welcome you with open arms.
I feel like texas will want art briles
I know I read this in a few different places over the last year or two but I cannot find the links so take this with a heaping grain of salt, BUT:
I recall reading/hearing that, while he is a fantastic coach, he is also a terrible recruiter (duh). He "doesn't have the personality/mentality of a head coach," whatever that might mean.
My guess is that he simply doesn't want the extra activities of a head coach. Maybe what is above is somewhat true and he knows or thinks that he wouldn't make a good Head Coach and would prefer to focus on coordinating.
OR MAYBE (wild theory here) Narduzzi is actually the unofficial head coach (or co HC) of MSU. Dantonio has said that Narduzzi tends to take on more responsibilities than his position demanded in the past so why couldn't that include some Head Coaching duties?
As I stated in an earlier thread on the same topic these type of topics are pathetic because it makes the fan base sound like UM cannot compete with MSU coaches. "Why hasnt ABC coach been scooped up by someone else" infers "...so we dont have to deal with him anymore." Maybe UM needs to find their own Narduzzi then? Or their own Dantonio. For all we know Dantonio is the mastermind and Narduzzi just is the face.
MSU was very close to firing 2009 (or at least the fan base wanted it badly) - so I dont think he suddenly turned into a genius alone but we'll soon see. There is literally no where to go but down for Narduzzi after this year's senior loaded #1 defense - Oregon and OSU are on their schedule next year... well OSU will be on their schedule this year too in the championship game.
The bigger picture is look at what other team's coaches can do with less talent than ours. That should be the subject of this...not hoping / wishing / asking why someone cannot whisk away a rival coach so that our games become easier. Which is what all these threads are at the subconscious level.
Tnese threads do suck.
Narduzzi is good at his job but he does have the advantage of a Senior laden defense that he's coached well and who played great.
This sort of thing runs in cycles in the college game (citing here our one time nemesis/hot candidate for DC everywhere Manny Diaz and also Florida HC Will Muschamp - both of whom have had limited success since departing Miss State and Texas respectively).
If Narduzzi was smart he'd stay at Sparty; particularly given Manny Diaz' experience.
For HC, not even close. MSU would be crushed by the top 10 teams. Michigan having a bad HC and OC (the two sdsu guys) doesnt mean hes good.
