    I'm all in on DM (like I have a choice), but these two new pick-ups are underwhelming to say the least. The WR at least is supposed to be really fast - which begs the question: Why doesn't anyone else worth a damn want him? I'm determined to stay as positive as possible, but we ain't beating UGA and FSU with mid-range 3 stars. We've been down that road to nowhere before. Just saying.

        FYI - I am not mad that he left, I am mad that he lied about the reason and that he trashed UF after leaving.

        Oh, and since 2011, Dantonio has won 2 conference championships (one vs Meyer) whereas Meyer has only won two with a much better roster. Meyer has a top 3 recruiting class every year.

        And who is responsible for that? His secretary? Recruiting is part of the job, perhaps Dantonio should get off his ass and try it some time. Then maybe he wouldn't have 3-9 seasons.

        Meyer won two NC's for us, that far outweighs how he left in my view. I'd take that trade-off every single time. Meyer doesn't get judged on conference championships.....like Saban, it's NC or bust. Dantonio will never sniff one.

        If MSU wants to reach the mountaintop, then they should go get Meyer and send Dantonio to the Sun Belt where he belongs.

          Problem with MSU is that apparently all they've been going after is ass:eek4:

            He is an elite recruiter, one of the best. No one other than Saban has ever recruited like him.

            He is also the best ST coordinator ever.

            He demands great defense and puts functional (if conservative) offense on the field.

            He is an ******* and a weasel but you cant act like the man cant coach.
