Walton was never offered. And for the record, I agree with you that your program is trending in the right direction, but what I scoff is the talk that UM has risen, MSU has fallen, etc. It's the same argument that MSU homers make for MSU football being on top after a nice few years.

You can't say Tom Izzo is losing his grip on the state of Michigan until he actually loses a player to the Wolverines. There is no player on Michigan's current or future roster that has an MSU offer. There are several that play for MSU that Beilein has offered. Once Michigan starts taking kids from MSU, then people like me will start sounding the alarm bells for MSU basketball.

This reminds me of Big East 2009 when Pitt, Louisville, and UConn were all 1-seeds with Marquette, WVU, Syracuse, and Villanova also getting bids.
The B1G can have a legit shot of 2 #1 seeds (Indiana and Michigan) with a few others in that 2nd tier (OSU, MSU, maybe Minnesota/Wisconsin)

The unraveling is something that occurred during the JLS/Bobby years where we would be 5-0 or something of the like going into the Michigan game and end up being 5-7 on the year after an excruciating loss to Michigan. The collective let down after the Michigan game has been put to an end in the Dantonio era as he is 6-0 the week after the Michigan game. So this "unraveling" you are speaking about is most def. a thing of the past.

I generally agree. Fonoti may get a medical redshirt since he went down for the season in the ND game I believe, so he should return, which yields only 1 senior departure on the OL. So far, the OL has been statistically performing about the same as last year, so if the same group returns I would expect about the same results from them.
Overall, the offense will probably be pretty vanilla if the coaches don't make a change, while the defense should be good enough to keep them in games.
I see Coach D having a very Tressel-like philosophy in building a football team: have a game managing type offense with solid field goal kicking, and a defense that can keep you in games. Over 2010-2011 seasons MSU was 6-1 in games decided by 3 points or less.
Question for the UM D: I watched pieces of the Illinois game replay and from the plays that I saw, I didn't really see the D-Line getting the push I was expecting them to have (the linebackers were all over the place though). How do you see your D Line next year with the senior departures and young people filling in?
It's always a pleasure chatting with you guys. Thanks for being good hosts.

It's probably a combination of the 4 (Maxwell, WRs, OL, and OC). You can see a noticeable lack of creativity in the offense in the past 2 years vs Treadwell the years before. Right now it seems like the offense is trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. Last year, this worked because the holes were also square. This year he is not adjusting to the personnel.
In the Iowa game, MSU ball leading by 7, 4 minutes and change to play in regulation. First play, rush to Bell gain of 5. 2nd play, incomplete pass, 3rd play incomplete pass. He could have run these same plays last year and attained success because of his personnel, but he thinks he can force them in this year and it's just not working.
I think Dantonio may have the inverse of the Rich Rod problem you guys had a few years back. Dantonio is a defensive minded coach who just relies on the coordinator to run the offense.

This pretty much sums it up. RCMB is good for a few laughs here and there but it is by no means a site to go to for technical football insight. Most of the technical content (recruiting news, player development, etc) is all accessible via a paid membership. TOC would be the MGoBlog-esque equivalent website for Spartan fans.

Monkeys throwing darts at a wall full of plays to run would be more effective.

Correct. There really aren't 2 main starters at the DT spots. It's kind of a a revolving door with Kitteredge, Hoover, Reynolds, and White rotating between plays.

He was out for the Iowa game and was expected as a 'maybe' for Oct 20th. This was the diagnosis 2 weeks ago when he got injured at IU.
In other words, *gulp*.
