Narduzzi's defense plays winning football, but that's just 1/3 of the battle.
Don't kid yourself, with USC talent, Duzzi's defense would be immovable. And in the Pac12, he'd have to face pro-style, spread, and read-option teams. It's the best OJT you can get, coaching in the Pac12. He'd be well versed for his eventual move to HC.
This program is already in regression because of Roushar. Narduzzi is worth a few points a game and if this program fails to make the post season next year, it is in big trouble...especially with a resurgent rival in state.
We need Narduzzi to stay another year.
I guess I'm confused....besides message board posters and a couple of msu beat writers, who is saying this is a done deal?
I would figuratively kill myself if this is true
It's "Izzo is hired and a done deal to the Cavs" all over again....Hopefully another reporter is in for a public undressing ala Lynn Henning when NarDawg says he is staying....

hey that's not fair. Where did "Michigan fans" claim MSU would always be .500?
While watching tonigh's Cotton Bowl I had to think Coach Narduzzi had to be questioning his decision to pass on TAMU last year. At A&M he would have had a national stage while "under the wing" of one of the brightest offensive minds in Sumlin. He also would have some inroads to Texas recruiting in the year or two before taking a head coach position.
Not only is Coach Narduzzi our best recruiter, he is also the architect of our ranked defense. I am in the camp that says if we are serious about being a football program on the national stage we can't be losing our coaches to lateral moves.
You literally used figuratively correctly.
FWIW, Hondo says it's complete BS:
USC is football royalty. The 1% of the BCS.
This is hardly a lateral move.
LOL a "journalist" using tRCMB 247 site discussing rumors from a Rivals messageboard as his source....
Even still, gotta feel like Hondo might know more than we do. Hopefully he is right.
That's not exactly a definitive rebuttal.
He says Duzzi is in LA recruiting. Well, I'm sure he is. That doesn't mean that he can't also meet with the USC powers that be while he's out there. Just a little too convenient, since our track record in Cali is damn near non-existent, family ties notwithstanding.
It's not like Duzzi would call Hondo and tell him he's also talking to USC while on a recruiting trip.
It would be pretty douchey to meet with a recruit for MSU and then go meet with USC. I just can't see Narduzzi doing that.
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
I wouldn't be surprised if he was up-front with Dantonio. It's not like Coach D would alert the media or anything.
Coach Narduzzi leaving to be a head coach --> wish him well and thank him for his role in making MSU a better program
Coach Narduzzi leaving to be another school' s DC, albeit higher profile, top 1% of BCS - Makes me question if we are a feeder school
I felt the same with Bielema to Arkansas
The douche from Lansing is trying to ride RCMB coattails to making a name for himself. Rexrode shouldn't have reTweeted him. Sorry, I just doubt that a guy that no one has ever heard of has his first big break on a story like this, and it just happens to occur after it was posted here.
However, the name is out there from USC circles too.
On Monday, Scott Wolf reported that Lane Kiffin would looking for a defensive coordinator without ties to USC to succeed his father, Monte. That, coupled
Did anyone talk to that Cleveland media company? Cleveland Plane Dealer?
scott wolf will do anything to F us over.
There is no definitive evidence he is leaving. Nothing more than message board posters. Stop getting your panties in a twist.
I remember back when I used to be on huge's page on facebook, and the Plane Dealer was spreading all that shit about Izzo I said that only reporter I would trust about it was Rexrode and huge got all over me for it. Kept telling me how credible that newspaper was and how great of a job they were doing. In other words huge is an asshole that doesnt know anything.
Does anyone think this is why Henderson hasn't committed?
I am a huge MSU fan and love this school but if this goes down I am definitely to the point of realizing where we stand as a program. There is a ton that goes into being an elite program and there seems to be few schools in the past decade to take that leap. The only school I can think of is Oregon. I think that if duzzi heads to USC we might as well say we are happy with mediocrity and let it be that.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
You're talking to the wrong guy. I'm not a wanna be Tim Staudt Jr., tweeting that he's "hearing things"...that guy couldn't land an interview with a walk-on towel boy. You think Narduzzi or USC has that clown on speed dial?
Tell your buddy to go make a few friends, and maybe, someday, he'll have a scoop.
