If MD spends one second reading the crap posted here I've lost all respect for him.
MD is actually Nucky.
and he reads Blanch's posts for advice.

"When I was in school they told me practice makes perfect. Then they told me nobody's perfect. So I stopped practicing." --Steven Wright
Great deflection quote.
Sounds like this offense is ready to fly then.
Lost in all this chatter is a major point that nobody seems to want to address
That point is that Dantonio himself can hardly be considered an offensive genius.
He is a defensive coach who himself needs offensive tutoring
But he knows football, and I trust him to see that something in our football strategy is broken.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
So MD is Maverick and Roushar is Goose. Remember what happened to Goose
If roushar had any fucking integrity at all, he'd quit. Or at least donate his salary to someone who deserves it.
Vim -- noun: robust energy and enthusiasm : VITALITY
First year quarterback, inexperienced wide receivers, and a depleted O-line that wasn't elite to begin with. It's easy to blame the coaching when you're losing. Sure he might not be as good as Treadwell, but we won 11 games last year with him as a coordinator, as well as a bowl game, something Treadwell never did. Our problems boil down to inexperience, lack of execution, and leadership.
See, this is strange thinking to me. If I'm MD, I tell the coach in the box to shout out how the D is setting up and I think of what I wouldn't want an O to run if I was setting up that way, or what the vulnerabilities of that D are, then I tell the O to run it. That's hard to do on the field so you'd need someone up in the box, but I think a good D coach could make the O call based on what he saw from the D. Take what they're giving, right?

X 2. If he even has a grad asst spend 15 mins ....
Yep. It's one thing for a player to lurk here but any coach worried about what is posted here is lost.
Roushar is tucked under Dantonio's wing like a damn nasty giblet in a bucket of day old KFC, that about summarizes our offense this year. This shit doesn't fly in the SEC, and that's why they win NC after NC after NC, and we sit and fucking whine and finger point about over signing, and paying players, and running guys off, and blah blah blah. Meanwhile Urban Meyer gets what he wants and MSU can't get but one damn TE to throw to. Coach's make half mill a year and if I had a kid on this team (and I do have a kid in college) I'd be damn pissed at the throwing the kids under the bus crap. Man up. You don't think you have players, then STFU and go recruit. Maxwell is pretty much a damn senior at this point. He's a fourth year Junior who is past the half way point of the season. The injuries excuse is just that, an excuse. The OL struggled from day one, when they had everybody. They should road grade a team like EASTERN FRICKING MICHIGAN with their bottom 40. GRRRRR
Its five o'clock somewhere.
For a split second I read the topic title as "He's fucked under my wing."
So you want us to pay coaches better, run kids off and pay players. Cheat and win until we get caught, right?
Not my point. I want good pay for coaches who are worth it. I do not want us to cheat, and did not mean to imply that. What I meant was, we finger point and cry and accuse other schools of cheating with or without evidence, because its easier to do that than to be honest about our own problems. BTW, guess who runs kids off that suck? Izzo. He has it about right on this.
Fuck off, Roushar.
Why do I keep reading a different word than "tucked" when I see the OP headline?

It is not the dreaded "Vote of Confidence", it's worse. He's saying that Roushar is weak and needs protection. I can't imagine that Roushar will remain in his current role very much longer. A weak football coach is an oxymoron.
Give them NOTHING but take from them EVERYTHING.
I agree. Dantonio has integrity and he has confidence in himself. He's not going to allow anyone to pressure him into making a personnel decision. And you can't get where he is without having made some difficult personnel decisions along the way, so I don't buy the claims by some that his loyalty trumps his will to win.
Who did Izzo "run off" that sucked?
