The fact that Texas is the 4th best program in that state and will continue to be in the near future takes the wind out of your "structural advantages" argument.
Also, to speak about Penn State as some inherent structural power is ignorant at worst, laughable at best. MSU has more national and Big10 titles than Penn State. Scandals aside, Penn State hasn't been relevant on the national stage in 21 years. Hell, by this logic we should all be shaking in our boots because Princeton and their 28 national titles might start taking college football by storm again.

This is awesome.
If he passed away while still coaching, would this be an NCAA violation? Semi-serious question

Time to scrap the program and sell Spartan Stadium to the Lugnuts.

The B1G is not very much down. The B1G is top heavy. 3 teams just finished in the top 15 (tied with the S-E-C) and 2 were in the top 5. This past season disproved the perpetual myth about the B1G being a down conference.

Taking a step down after finishing in the top5 in back to back years wouldnt be earth shattering. I get Narduzzi but who else are you referring to regarding attrition? Next year's team will have more seniors on it than the 2011 team. Should be another solid year.

you've got some excellent standards Mr. Yost if you think Oregon didn't do anything special tonight. Mariota had 400 all purpose yards and 3 TDs.

Surprised nobody mentioned McElwain to UF. The guy won 2 NCs with 2 different 1st time starters at QB and I remember that offense absolutely crushing the vaunted UF defense in the SEC Championship.

Good for him. The natural progression is to go from a Power 5 coordinator to a head coach at a small-ish school before moving up to bigger jobs. Starting at Pitt seems like a good first job. He can always stay there if he succeeds and not treat it as a stepping stone.

EMU was projected to win 2.5 and still fell short.

Pretty good hire for them IMO. Florida had success previously with offensive minded coaches (Spurrier/Meyer), then switched gears to a defensive minded coach (Muschamp), and is back to an offensive minded guy.
He won 2 NCs with 2 different 1st year starting QBs and put up 500 yards of total offense on the #1 defense in 2009. He's more of a pro-style guy but puts up spread type numbers.

Most sports (in one way or another) are literally moving an object from one place to another. It's amazing how many emotions and dollars are tied into and invested in this concept.

Not entirely true. Take a look at the 2015 recruiting talent pool in Alabama and compare it with the talent pool in Michigan.
Auburn took a grand total of 6 Alabama kids in 2014 and Alabama took 7. Using a state's recruting profile is not the best way to measure the relative success of teams in that state.

Groce is 15-21 in the Big10 in his two years with players like Rayvonte Rice, Brandon Paul, and Tracy Abrams. This upcoming season could be a make or break year for him if he doesn't step it up.

Just embarassing. These entitled students don't know how good they have it and don't know who John L. Smith is.

We've somehow ended back at #9....where we were ranked before the Oregon game.
Of the 8 teams in front of us:
- Baylor plays @ OU
- Texas A&M plays @ Bama and @ Auburn
- Notre Dame plays @ FSU
- Auburn plays @ Bama
I realize that AP rankings mean nothing now, but the point is that the teams ahead of us are guaranteed some losses by virtue of playing each other while MSU will be favored in every game the rest of the season. In the end I can still see MSU landing at #5 due to strength of schedule. A year similar to 2010 where we had a statement game at Iowa and didn't get it done.

Not not much room to make a step forward so taking a step back isn't too wild a prediction.

I think the doing more with less meme belongs to the football coach rather than the basketball coach. Never once have I heard that MSU basketball does not bring in top-flight talent. The reason that doesn't translate into NBA success has to do with player development of the freshman phenoms (Marquise Gray, Kelvin Torbert, etc). That doesn't take anything away from his hall of fame level collegiate accomplishments.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Where are you getting this||
Where are you getting this meme from about Izzo doing more with less? I would say he normally targets the 4-year type players and molds them into 1 on 1 defenders before giving them much playing time, but I wouldn't call that "less".
