2013 is starting to feel like 2010 more and more. Same record, a steady regression on one side of the ball, and now recruiting seems to be falling off a cliff down the road (likely) because of it.

I had assumed this would happen for a while. I don't know why so many people are so shocked by this.

Well he's a college football fan so we know he's a fickle person to begin with.

There is no way he had an msu offer. Dantonio only recruits 2 and 3 star recruits and "coaches them up."
|1 day 22 hours ago||Which is a totally realistic||
Which is a totally realistic expectation given what we have seen of their defensive coaching to date.

They really can't find a single bank that will finance their move?

Has Danny Clark checked with eleven warriors yet to make sure it was actually a committable offer?
Besides I thought it was a bad thing to get early commitments?

There is always something exhilarating about taking someone else's words out of context for your own personal gain.

September 2015 can't get here soon enough.

No, he meant "passed TO this guy."

I think Trey Burke made a mistake going pro and that he's overrated (as an NBA player). He's going to be back in college in 5 years finishing his degree while not playing (obviously).
Also, I fully expect Jabrill Peppers to be a bust.

If Matthew Broderick is not in this one then it is a complete travesty.

Does the guy holding the sign have grounds for a lawsuit? I would for sure be on the phone with a lawyer if I were him.

I have a friend (well, acquaintance) who went to KSU. And I agree, because of that ****** alone, this is a MUST win.
|1 week 2 days ago||Great. I'm looking forward to||
Great. I'm looking forward to staying up until 1:30am to watch Michigan take it to the wire and probably lose in a game in which they have 5 or 6 dozen chances to win handily, and then my kids will get me up at 6:30 like they do every morning. Can't wait.

Ah I see. I suppose my argument did change slightly throughout the debate as my original point was shot down in flames.

FTR I agree with you.

Seasons as head coach in a BCS conference
I think we have a much better sample size for one than we do for the other.
|1 week 2 days ago||You are correct on the star||
You are correct on the star rating fact and I was wrong to post that without checking my facts in advance, however I still believe that no team, no matter how good the coaches are, can sustain CHAMPIONSHIP levels of success on a yearly basis with how msu is recruiting.
If it were really about development and talent was only in the eye of the beholder, then Rod Marinelli would have at least 4 super bowl rings right now.
|1 week 2 days ago||It isn't a black and white||
It isn't a black and white issue. Sparty is good because their coaches are unbelievably good at fundamental skill development and creating as close to a flawless system as you can with the players they have. I'm not saying they aren't gonna be good for the next few years, I'm saying they are not going to be winning championships like this. You can be a 9-10 win team without winning championships.
|1 week 2 days ago||Dantonio has established a||
Dantonio has established a program that is going to produce 8-10 wins a year for a while; even if he retires in the next year or two the table is set with a solid coaching tree. However they cannot sustain a championship-level of success with how they have been recruiting and will likely continue to recruit in the foreseeable future. They capitalized on a good amount of talent during the Rodriguez years and the OSU coaching transition that it is paying dividends now, and they have done a good job of developing low-rated recruits but as the talent they have accumulated begins to cycle off the roster they will take a step back.
Don't get me wrong, their coaching is phenominal and they should expect to be in "the discussion" for years to come but I think they won't be going to another Rose Bowl for a long, long time.

I have this weird feeling we are gonna pound them in their stadium next year.
|1 week 2 days ago||Yes. There is really nothing||
Yes. There is really nothing tangible to show for it. The thing is OSU is at a pinnacle point. Michigan is the team that is rebuilding right now. This season has to feel like the 2006 season did for us (except they beat their biggest rival).

24-1 is hard to pull off but it deserves an asterisk that this is the worst Big Ten in decades.
|1 week 3 days ago||I was gonna say, if Gus||
I was gonna say, if Gus Johnson is "unbearable" what does it take to be bearable?
|1 week 3 days ago||That is not an unreasonable||
That is not an unreasonable thing to hope for. Knowing that Roby is going pro, and assuming that Michael Bennett and Shazier may also go pro, an already mediocre defense is going to lose a lot of talent and experience and the thing that made this offense so unstoppable this year- Hyde and that o line, will be gone. As we have learned having good recruits who are young without many juniors and seniors to fall back on can turn out very poorly.
|1 week 3 days ago||They have earned it. I am||
They have earned it. I am much happier with them winning the Big Ten and getting their Rose Bowl than seeing Urban go 25-0 and play for a national title. Both teams will be rebuilding next year. There is a very good chance he will be going into year 4 without a conference championship.

Did Gus Johnson just refer to msu as little brother?

I thought we were done calling them lil bro.

At Alabama, his chances for INT's would be helped by Hand's pass rush.
At Michigan, his chances for INT's would be helped by Big Ten QB's.
