After the 2013 defensive nightmare I have to admit I was a bit envious of MSU's d with Narduzi until I read an article on 11W that reminded us that only a few years ago MSU's d with Narduzi was a clown show. I am convinced that OSU will return to their silver bullet form in short order. So I am happy coaches are getting paid in East Lansing, I think that it is highly likely that in a season or two Ash will collect his payday.
One thing that I think would be cool is a stitched buckeye leaf on the jersey for each win the player has been a part of during their tenure. Seniors would have more than freshmen, you get the idea. I think is would be a real honor to players that stay all four years. I could be wrong but I think it would be unique to Ohio State, which in a sense would be a tradition because I think they were the first to have stickers for their helmets right?
Dude you are one informed fan. Your post reads like an article at 11w. If they are hiring you should fill out an application.
Bravo sir bravo. This works on so many levels there is the Nick Marshall level then there is the Cam Newton level.
Miller may never be an NFL QB but lets not sell him short either. Yes I know that his stats the last 4 games were flat but he has gotten better every year and I expect he will continue to improve.
The last two games have shown us that we are still in the process of rebuilding. I am sure this team will continue to improve as issues are addressed. We need to be patient and let one of the most successful coaches of the modern era do what he does best.
All jokes aside about our DBs footspeed why the eff do we line the DBs up 10 yards off the line of scrimmage? It's not like they are breaking on short passes for big plays
JV defense baby!
I could be wrong but I just can't see MSU going toe to toe with the bucks year in and year out. Their facilities are not as good, recruiting is not as good, and for the exception of the d coordinator position coaching staff isn't as good. Every couple of years they will get frisky and challenge for a big ten title. I like Dino as much as the next guy but this is the same team that didn't win a home big ten game last year.
I totally agree. If we hire a d coordinator in the near future they will be set up for success. The talent is there and more is on the way. I know MSU is in love with their program right now and their coaches are underpaid at the moment but I would get nervous about handing out big pay days after one really good year. Does anybody think MSU can sustain this success consistently over the long haul?
Rumor has it Narduzzi is going to be making 800 k to coach the d in East Lansing next year. Not sure any school will lure him from Sparty
I did not know Cook was related to Gardner.
Wilson's season ended flat because he was kicked out of "The" game and was probably not utilized as much in the conference championship because he was in the dog house with Hall. I also think that he impacted games more than his stats would indicate because defenses had to key in on him when he was in the game. No other player on the offense could provide the dimension that Wilson did.
Yeah I was really disappointed with Wilson this year. He only averaged 9 yards everytime he touched the ball. Hopefully he can improve over the summer.
With Raekwon in the mix it seems like have a surplus of premium talent at the linebacker position is the idea some guys will move to other positions?
Maybe I am overly optimistic but I am 100% certain the d gets fixed. We have a head coach obsessed with perfection, highly tallented young players with more on the way, top knotch facilities at a tradition rich school in a tallent rich state. How is this problem not solved in the very near future?
