Hard to knock them for picking Painter for coach of the year. Anyone who can rally the troops like he did after losing Hummel is a deserving candidate.
It might be more appropriate to say that Tressel is stocking the cupboard for his replacement. I would be surprised if Tressel is coaching long enough to see the 2012 class (which should be awesome) graduate.
I can't recall for sure, but didn't Dantonio/MSU vote against changing the tie breaker to the BCS standings (likely b/c he could foresee getting screwed since MSU will rarely start the season in the top ten of the polls). If so, I wouldn't call the process "long-agreed-upon-and-adhered-to".
30% faster? That's pretty precise. Would love to know how you quantified that.
Agreed, neither generation of these uniforms looks that bad standing alone, but it's stupid that they wear them against Michigan. I realize that Michigan is an Adidas school, but I can't see how that makes much difference.
