Look I have been A long time lurker but don't believe I have ever posted. A loss like this forced me to log in and vent. At what point will we realize MD is nobody special? He just got lucky with some darn special underrated players.. A few questions for all of you experts.
1. Why does he continue to stand behind Rousher and his horrible play calling?
2. Why did it take 4 games before he realized Burbridge is our best WR?
3. Why is Arnett on the sideline?
4. Really LT at fullback?
5. Two 10 win seasons and we still can't recruit better than this?
6. Why the lack of discipline?
Now I will log back off and watch the normal bashing that occurs when one questions the messiah. Before you start let me tell you I am a former ticket holder but no longer live in state, I am an alum, I am a donor, I have been a fan for over 40 years, I played football but now admit I am an armchair qb and believe I am entitled to my opinion due to all the above. IMO we have 2 more SOS years left before others realize he is nobody special.
Not yet....that's the answer

November 3rd, 2014 if we have 5 losses.
Never. He took a mediocre program to 2 excellent years. Firing him would be like when Minnesota fired Mason.
If we come out flat in 2 weeks and lose, then I think he should be questioned.
Back to Arnett. A better question would be why was Kings redshirt burned?
He has made some very questionable decisions this year. His team playss like they dont care. They talk so much shit but cant back it up

The biggest indictment on coaching is 4 and 2 3 timeouts zero for Nebraska and they don't even try to draw offsides? Could have done so multiple times from multiple formations and maybe actual go for it if Nebraska doesn't line correctly. Pathetic.
It's not time to question Coach D. A few plays go differently this season and everyone would be slurping the kool-aid. It's been a shitty year. He's frustrated, the players are frustrated, the fans are frustrated. But I don't see anything fundamentally wrong with the program.
If staffing changes need to be made at the end of the year, they'll be made. I personally expect Narduzzi to be gone; he'll get a head-coaching offer somewhere and take it.
Regarding recruiting ... the only universe in which two 10-win seasons lead to a shitload of talent is the EA Sports universe.
This is a typical sign of immaturity. Twitter, game poses, costly penalties... starts to make you think where are the Captains of this team? No consistency throughout the year... until last week and then the 'SOS' label unfolds itself... again. Shake my head in disappointment like so many MSU fans with the hope of a great season that got away. To think about next year does not leave you with a great feeling of hope.
Questions 1 thru 4 are stupid. If I were a mod, posters that post stupidity would be banned.
Prepare for downvotes. Anything logical and thought out is immediately responded as heretic.
Honest to god- some of you people are crackheads. U can't know anything about football. Sure if MSU was Kansas State, avoid as much good compettion as you can and they let any RETARD in school you can crook-up a winner in short order.
I'm glad Hollis- for all of his arrogant, smarmy cheeseiness is not such an idiot as to think that way.
Well aren't you a solid addition to the board. Now fuck off.
Valid points. For as many great calls MD has come up with during his tenure you would think he'd be more in tune with the little nuances of certain game situations.
Yeah his seat is nowhere near hot and won't be for quite awhile unless something crazily negative happened. I don't question him as a coach but I also don't think he should be totally unquestioned as in I really support him as coach but he is not above criticism.
A lot of questions dude.
MD has earned the right to be trusted. However, this season has been tough. MSU is looking suspiciously like the SOS, that would snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. This is not good.
Let's call a spade-a-spade. This season has been a disaster thus far. I truly feel for fans going to these games. MD begs fans to come out, and this is what they get to see? Way to go coach!
At what point do you realise this isn't a "special" job & you'll never have anybody "special"? And if by some miracle you did get someone "special" they'd leave at the first opportunity (ala Nick Saban).
Dantonio is pretty good, be thankful for what you've got, because it could be much, much worse.
When he played Rucker when he was still in his orange jumper.
He shouldn't have to beg fans to come out. Ferentz has been through WAY worse and he does not have to beg fans.
I don't think they need to beg fans to come out at Arkansas either.

I see that roundhead/donnyrotten/mudjin harbor has created a new schtick to make it look like his stupidity has some company.
