I agree. That's why I made the post....
I'd be fine with a corpse taking over.
Was this thread really necessary?
We all know he's not getting the job and the meltdown on here will be epic
In college football, I think it's fair to give people at least 3-4 years before canning them. Year 3 is where you see a lot of growth. Firing a guy after 2 years isn't right.
True, he had an inexperienced WR corp. & QB. No one will argue with you on that topic. But where the debate stands is if you had those restrictions, then shouldn't you tailor an offense to be friendlier to their talents? A good coach gets the most out of their players. Something he failed to accomplish.
3-4 years in college athletics is a lot more than 3-4 years in a regular job. If you are at a program for 3-4 years you have the chance to leave your stamp on the program. Whether good or bad.
Roushar also has a bad history of crapping the bed when it matters. See: Nebraska and ND from 2011. It's not just the talent on the field.
tRCMB - Visit at your own risk of being disgusted.
Yeah I should have made it clearer that I was seconding your comment.
The board needs a scapegoat and people are uncomfortable criticizing the players. It's 09 Duzzi all over again.
We can take any mid-major OC at any time we want. There are plenty in the MAC, CUSA, etc. who totally outclass him as an OC. The guy just sucks, replacing him is easy. Getting rid of him is hard.
Coaches never get fired within 3 years unless they say "I don't know" at press conferences or do something unethical. Roushar has had one good season, one bad.
Would this NFL job be considered an advancement in either position and/or $?
Last year was the worst MSU offense I have seen in my lifetime, and I'm not young. There is no way it was all on the players. No way.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
Nebraska 2011 was the worst day in the Roushar era.
He sealed his fate with me in the bowl game where he called the bubble screen play in our own end zone to start the game...
Earlier in the year, Kirk Cousins shared his thoughts when he spiked the ball out of frustration on a delay of game penalty, all because DR couldn't decide which play to call in a timely fashion.
Okay, since others do it that way, we should do it that way too.
I guess you just know more than Dantonio then.
Punisher99 will have you believe that was a good call.
As others have pointed out, Giant Moose is missing the logic boat on this...
the fact that he is interviewing for a position coach in the NFL speaks volumes about the confidence the program has in his ability as an offensive coordinator. If Roushar isn't able to get another job, I'm looking for Dantonio to shuffle the coaching the staff responsibilities and name a new offensive coordinator.
So Nebraska and ND mattered, but not Wiscy (x2), UM, Georgia, etc.?
I'm indifferent to Roushar (which causes people to think I love him), but that's just a dumb statement. There were far bigger games, than ND or Nebraska in 2011, where the offense excelled.
I'm sure Coach D appreciates you speaking on his behalf.
haha I was waiting for you to make that claim. I know much less than Dantonio, but it seems like you believe that everyone who has an opinion that differs from him is automatically wrong.
ND game isn't even a conference game
There have been far bigger games than that one
This, jeez it's like having a conversation with Joseph Smith...
