Hope Martinez knows that Coach Coombs is in the business of planting flags, getting signatures on dotted-lines, kicking assses and sending D-backs to the NFL.

Notre Dame and Northwestern aren't even in the same universe as Coach and the sooner Martinez figures it out the better it is for everyone.

I don't think it said in the article when the longevity bonus was put into his deal but it was probably put in there 4 or 5 years ago as a pay-to-stay incentive and they had some good teams back then.

If you show his average comp over the past 5 years including that 1 time bonus I think he still looks like a decent deal vs many other P5 coaches -- Bret B down in Arky, Muschamp at USCe, Jimmy at scUM,  Jerremy Pruit at Tenn, Helton at USCw, etc..

Yes, he's taken some questionable characters onto his teams but recruiting E.Lansing isn't easy so he's going to have to take some risks vs blue-chip programs like us, Bama, Texas, USCw, etc who can be more selective.

That's a lot of coin and the team seems to be on the decline in the recent couple of years but Dantonio has won 67% of his games there which is very tough to do at Michigan State. 

When Saban was there he only won 58.5% of his games

I think it would be very tough to find another coach who's going to go up there, stay for a long time like Dantonio has, win a the rate he has and win some B1G titles like he has.

There have been less than 10 universities that have qualified and played in the new college playoff and under Dantonio MSU is one of those schools.  

I think those MSU fans have probably gotten their money's worth out of Dantonio.  He's been a much better bargain then Jimmy up at scUM.

How does the saying go?   “The NCAA is going to be so mad about this that they’re going to give Rutgers the death penalty”?

Comment 14 Jan 2020

Let's not jump the gun and presume guilt until all the facts come out.  We should all know better.

If this fuked up stuff was really going on there will be plenty of time and justification to rip their program later.

I haven't seen the kid play but he sounds like a wrecking ball.

If someone would have seen Jerome Bettis' height/weight and 40 time I guess they would have written him off but look at what he did.

I don't know if the 19 y.o. "Bus" is a good comp for 19 y.o. Miyan but it sounds like they have a similar running style and build.

I (Clark Griswald) came in tied for 51st....

You might not have heard about it (/s) but I got totally jobbed in this one game -- OSU v Klempsun where the refs were crooked and cost me about 25 points (50 point swing).  If you didn't see it you should watch that game and then write a letter to your congressman.

Then f'ing Indiana had to lose by a point costing me 35 points (70 point swing).

To all of you in the #1 to 50 slots, good job!!  I'm coming for you next year though!

I think Herbie handles this the way my dad did when he was the coach of my baseball teams when I was a kid.  He was always the hardest on me and he told me as long as he was coaching the team that's the way it was going to be.  The bias if there was any was always going to go the other way.

I think that is Herbie's approach.  He should just come out and say it that his intention is to be objective and if there is any bias in his calls and commentary he is going to err on the side of the other team to avoid looking like a homer.  

Comment 03 Jan 2020

Where are the top HS RB's in the nation located?  Day should give Coombs area responsibility for those locations and let that crazy sombitch go plant his OSU flags in all those places.

Even though he was the DB coach I am pretty sure Coombs had area responsibility for Detroit and went up there and pulled Weber out of the scUM Cass Tech pipeline.  

Coombs can recruit anyone anywhere.   Really hope he's back.

Comment 02 Jan 2020

that ball movement was blatantly intentional...let's run up move the ball forward a half yard so we already have the 1st down when we snap it.  No way that was unintentional.

Comment 02 Jan 2020

It is to protect the play calls from the opposition.  I’m not sure how effective it is but I was listening to the Citrus Bowl on ESPNU and the Alabama announcers were talking about it and said Harbaugh was putting the screens up to protect the play calls

i wonder if there are accusations of SEC teams doing surveillance and steeling play calls since I only heard about this In the Alabama and Georgia games.

Dabo’s probably a great guy to grab a beer with or if he’s your neighbor or if he’s the head coach of your team

if he’s the head coach of your rival he’s a real dickhead 

Comment 30 Dec 2019

I hate Clemson and I’m sure I’m in the minority but if we had to lose I want to lose to the champs.  If Clemson rolls over LSU we were that close to winning it all.  It’s painful to lose the way we did but losing closely to the champs will help our recruiting pitch.

”we are this close to winning it all. If you come here it puts us over the top”. 

Comment 20 Dec 2019

This is Clark Griswald, I just finished stringing-up the lights and getting cousin Edie some more eggnog so now I’m going to submit my winning picks.  

You guys are going down!  Don’t be surprised when you see Clark Griswald at the top of the board.  I won the pig in the poke trip to Germany now I’m gonna win this one too.  You guys can fight over 2nd place.

Can you make one with the hit on Coan and the end of the game that shoes Brutus covering his eyes?
