I'll wait for SPARTICUSS to weigh in before I make a determination.

Ok, you're just blatantly playing to the mob now. Lol.
Sorry if I wasn't blown away by the results of Bret's big coaching shakeup. His team finished 4-4 in the worst B10 in years, good for third in its division. Their wins were over Illinois, Purdue, Minnesota and IU. And of course they lost to the worst OC in college football history at home.
MSU fans are in no position to criticize anyone else, but I think it's comical that anyone would point to Bielema's coaching changes as some great success. They started the season as a mediocre team and ended it as one - they just happened to play in the Sanctions Division. Maybe you're arguing the new assistants enabled them to hold off IU in the division race?
Beilema has made a career of capitalizing on a Big Ten that lacks continuity and has programs that continually shoot themselves in the foot. He may not be a great coach, but he is smart enough to run wild over the idiots in the big ten.
Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
Look at the rushing stats before and after the move.
Look at the QB stats before and after the move. If Stave wouldn't have gotten hurt it would have been even more glaring.
Look at the points scored before and after.
Then talk to me.

Bump for Broyles ACL.
Screw everyone and everything!
Look at the competition.
Stave off the drugs man.
I've come to the conclusion that everybody on this board can find a way to make stats look favorable to their cause.
You should start a thread about people using stats in regards to Roushar.
I disagree. 64% of people using stats on this site are incorrect and therefore make their cause appear less favorable.
Haha. Like freakanomics

Oh yeah, he got fired after Northern Iowa and Oregon State.
And DOB got benched after Northern Iowa, Oregon St, and Utah St....those three games were definitely the toughest stretch of competition this season.
I think he was implying look at the competition that you were going up against these last few games (outside of NEB)
EDIT: Oregon State actually was a really good team too, in hindsight. Not debating that the move seems to have worked for you guys, just saying.

Hey, if you're happy with 4-4 and third in the division after the coaching change, so are we. We're trying to fire an OC for ranking us in the 100s for total offense, and you guys finished 98th and seem thrilled. Kudos.
So you completely ignored what I told you to look at because it didn't fit with your narrative. Well done.
You claim the competition was easier after the changes. It wasn't.
You claim that I was talking about record. I wasn't.
Try to follow the conversation and points being made next time.
I don't think the competition was significantly better - and those that were you lost to (OSU and PSU). Again, your only B10 wins were against the worst of the worst, and your offense was ranked 98th nationally. If that is improvement in your book more power to you.
If you consider teaching how to hold excessively as fixing then yes they did.
I'd like to see you banned for 6 months.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
