Sparty Here - The irony is that Ed pretty much ripped on Cook's footwork, Our ability to close, and DB play in every game he covered us.
We are what are record says. We lost to 2 better teams, and we not one of the top 5 teams in the country. he could make a case for last year, or make a statement that if there is a 8 team playoff, MSU if they got hot and addressed their Secondary could play for title..

Frank -

Agree at the pro level. My feedback was college only.

Comment 18 Dec 2014

I have to say I was surprised by the list since it was fan voting. I was expecting to see Troy Smith rather than Chic Harley. As an opponent watching OSU and reading on history. My 4: Cassady, Archie, Pace, Harley.

 Pace is one of top 3 OL in the last 40-50 years along with Munoz, and Hannah.

Trust me guys.

Dantonio has a very warm spot for OSU, and has internally and externally shared that they absolutely deserve to be part of the 4 teams. Our Entire staff and support groups is filled with OSU bloodlines, and the feeling for both Tressell, and the School has always been with  highest degree of respect.

Right now our players and coaches are playing a fine line in giving respect to Baylor/Cotton bowl, while not disrespecting the BIG/OSU.

MSU Right now is poised to have long term success primarily due to the face of having alignment between Board/ President/BIg Donor/AD. That was the case from infancy until Duffy stepped down in early 70's. Then President Wharton and the football advocates which help grow the school from land grant college to a international university fractured. And despite success in perles era, 4 distinct groups former - Academic admin, Board ( Joel Ferguson), Football boosters, and AD/Coach wanting all power. It was very ugly behind the scenes. Wasn't until late 90's ealry 00's that we began sorting out our power struggles and aligning. Then Hollis/Izzo/Dino were able to build on strong foundation.

This is where I see a big issue in A2 right now, and a little bit in Neb. If you don't have a strong foundation, even a great coach/Ad can't sustain success long term.

I will take a 1 point win all day. Thinking for us to win 45-38... Not sure we can win a game in the 50's.

Comment 09 Dec 2014

Conspiracy?? the only issue is that the Big 12 and its stakeholders obviously did not understand the rules of engagement going back 2.5 years. It was a given not playing a quality in a 13th( conference title) game would negatively impact them. Furthermore, to not stand behind Baylor when they won head to head is purely driven by Bob Bowlsby. Furthermore, I am sure there are longhorn mover and shakers that are happy with the result and do not want to see Bay/TCU win it all.

Comment 08 Dec 2014

Thanks for your support.

Really looking forward to my trip to C-bus for the game next November. Hopefully, It will be a top 10 match-up.

Our game will be interesting, as we were exploited by both meyer, and Oregon this year on the deep pass. The dirty little secret is that our Safties get caught looking to much on blitz and play action especially on hitch, slot, and hot reads. I don't see Petty being as much of running threat as Barret or Marriota. Should be a great game, albet it within a few hours of thier entire student body and alumni base.

Thank Mitch

Glad you had a good time. We try to pride ourselves on being hospitable to all our guests, but truthfully prolly fall somewhere between Nebraska and Wisconsin.

You guys played a great game, and all us, Spartans fans should recognize that.

Good luck the rest of the way.

Comment 13 Nov 2014

Quite honestly - a win over Auburn, georgia or Miss in Atlanta would be awesome!

Comment 12 Nov 2014

HA HA - Actually I was a brainwashed TTUN fan in the 70's as I went to HS in A2 and my dad has a post grad degree from um

Comment 12 Nov 2014

For those interested and living in the Atlanta Area. Feel free to turn on 1160 am at 4:00 pm on friday as I will be sharing my thoughts on the OSU - MSU games amongst other games

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Niblick -

Glad you had a blast. I would suggest hitting the Bacon cheesburger at Peanut Barrel next. Also, depending on OSU bye week. Check out MSU during a early fall game.. when all the scenery is out.


 

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Actually I felt that OSU ( which it did) Watched the oregon tape it would have recipe for taking it to our defense. As stout as we have been, we have also given up many explosive plays this year. Our LB have not maintained great Gap A/B integrity and our Safeties continue to be out of alignment on our weakside blitz. Total kudos to Herman/Meyer and players for recognizing these issues and exploiting them. I am very impressed with JT and his calm demeanor.

Thanks for the comments on the team.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Depends on the optics to better understand state. If you are younger than 35. Then this surely looks like a short run aka similiar to other schools striking it rich when some of the stalwarts are down.

I really believe as long as we have alignment in the leadership at the President, AD, Booster, and Coach level, than this type of run is possible. MSU had that alignment for its first 60's years of its program when they were fighting to become a university and a Big 10 member. They lost their way for many years, albeit with some success with Perles, and a year or 2 with saban. 

Our biggest challenge is that Michigan does not produce the high level of talent to field one let alone two Power 5 schools. Thus, we are forced to recruit heavily in ohio, pa,nj, and now Ga, FL.

I feel confident in the future, and should be very interesting battles once PSU and UM right their ships.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Glad you had fun. Too bad the weather was not better... MSU is known for also having SEC scenery during sept games :)

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Curious - Fido.. was it based on his coaching style, or personality. I can understand the latter.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

Yeah, I think our poor performance in south bend last year cost us the chance to play for title. I am sure delaney was chewing out the Big refs that threw all the laundry on the ND field last year.

Comment 11 Nov 2014

 Thanks for the classy responses... It is not easy, and took me 72 hours to come here. All the schools I have visited have their knuckleheads including both MSU, UF.
It is one thing when it on a keyboard, it is another when it is face to face. I can say I have never had one issue at C-bus, or another rowdy venue (sec). But that is also based on realistic expectations. When traveling have fun, treat every one with respect and kindness, and they will respond.... Oh yeah - handing out free shots of booze doesn't hurt
