“@joerexrode: Dantonio says of Roushar: "He's tucked right here under my wing." In other words, criticize Dantonio if you want to criticize Roushar.”
Looks like Danny Boy isn't going anywhere.
That's what I would expect a great coach, leader, and role model to say. Then after the season is over and the cameras are off Dantonio can address the situation privately.
demote his ass and bring back enos or treadwell.
Looks the opposite to me...that tells me that he recognizes Roushar's failure and that he will be the one that is held accountable and hold others accountable.
The dreaded "vote of confidence" from MD perhaps? (dreaded for DR of course.)

Well anyone who thinks we are going to fire Roushar mid year is a retard. At this point you have to ride it out. In the offseason, who knows.
Yeah, to me it sounds like he is admitting to protecting him and has noticed the critisism...Also "taking someone under your wing" usually means you are going to teach them something. Hopefully he can teach Roushar how to call more drives like the 1st one of the 2nd half.

35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
Hopefully he teaches Roushar how to update his resume.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
This is probably good news. He knows there is an issue.
"Tip number one: Stop writing your resume in crayon."
"Slow down, would ya?"
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
I'm afraid that's wishful thinking. Of course it could also mean MD knows he has to carry Roushar because he's just not up to it.
Why isn't every drive something similar to that one?!
How do you teach a guy to be creative? "Dan think of the play you'd call in this situation... and throw it away. Then think of what you'd never call in this situation that could get the yards needed and call that."
If you're fly fishing, and you come to a spot that has lots of cover for Trout to hang in, and there's a bubble line in the water indicating a seam between 2 currents, that collects bugs and acts as a chow conveyer belt for the fish, you fish it until you stop catching the trouts!
When you call an imaginative drive and score a TD, you call all the drives similar to that until you stop scoring TD's, then you make the adjustments you need to score again.

Is this a metaphor for, "Roushar is staying, our season is fucked, you may now drink the for basketball season?"
This quote has convinced me MD reads the board and is fucking with everyone.
I've thought this for a long time. Guy HAS to lurk. Probably even called that fake punt so he could read about his gargantuan balls again.
what i dont get is how the play calling can be so glaringly obvious. its not just a run vs. pass or a 2 TE vs. 5 wide set.....its the schemes and the play design, not the formation or the kind of play......yet clearly we have the right plays installed, they just arent being chosen? that makes me wonder if Roushar really has his "own" playbook that he installed and chooses plays from, or if it is a case of him picking plays off of a chart, like you or i would do on fucking NCAA 12.
clearly the right things are there, because we've seen them run, they just arent being called. we used to run the WR screen almost 6-7 times a game, usually for 5-12 yards a play....now we never, ever run it....almost never run out of the shotgun anymore -but go watch the game film against scUM in 2010 (i just did), tons of draws and traps out of a 1 back 3 wide set.....rarely see play action with 3 WR -that always seems to be on max protect and then no one is open anyways......its just mind boggling

We're fucked, and I will believe that until Dantonio decides to prove otherwise.

Enos wont make it much longer at central
This is what a great leader does. In this one sentence Dantonio has conveyed to the public that Mark Dantonio is the leader of this team not Dan Roushar and conveyed to the rest of his coaching staff and future coaching staffs that in the public eye he has thier backs. It also shows that he knows that he has raised the bar around East Lansing and he is ready to be held accountable for that good or bad. At the other end of that statement it also shows he knows there is an issue and he is handling it where it is supposed to be handled between him and Roushar. You don't fire an under performer without first putting them in a position to succeed and coaching them on what they need to be doing, where they have the opportunity to show they can be successful or they can't be successful. Sounds to me like Dantonio is in that process with Roushar.
Sad but true...
Haters gonna hate!
I hope you're right, though you're reading a ton into that sentence.
A real man never has to be "tucked" under another man's wing!!!! Roushar step up and answer the questions like a man or quit.
Coach D, if you wanna go down with the ship then fine do it, just dont be surprised when it starts taking on water.
coach d must be scared shitless after reading this post.
His Gargantuan balls will keep him afloat.
Im sure he's glad a poster with a kermit the frog asking for anal is defending his honor
