Dantonio a man of substance in a division of sizzle

Post by DWags on 2016-07-17, 01:32


https://www.landof10.com/big-ten/in-a-sizzle-division-all-michigan-state-coach-mark-dantonio-does-is-produce-steak-after-steak




Alas, a ride, for all its power, cannot tweet from movie theaters and restaurants. It cannot put on a Cristiano Ronaldo jersey and throw a wicked satellite camp in Madrid. It cannot bend the ear of a 4.3-cornerback one minute and the ears of power brokers at ESPN the next.

A ride won’t take off its shirt. Or climb a tree. Or roll with Michael Jordan. Or play social media the way Hendrix played a Strat.

And that’s what’s strange. Dantonio has led a program to 11 or more wins in five out of the last six years, a Sabanesque run without the Finebaum death glare. And yet he risks being cast as the right man in the right place at the wrong time, a steak coach in a sizzle division.

It says something about the state of Spartan football — and about us, and not in a good way — that one of the few major grenades most objective outsiders could lob at Dantonio these days is that he isn’t Jim Harbaugh or Urban Meyer.


Which, when you really think about it, is just silly. Monty Python, slap-a-man-in-the-face-with-a-fish kind of silly.

Why do I get the feeling that out of the three Bo would like to hang with Dantonio the most.

I don't know how or where you found that DWags, but I'm glad you did.

I get your point but I don't think Dantonio would like to hang with Bo.

ps. In this day and age, the 9 straight bowl games argument is pointless.

MSU's Mark Dantonio attends event to honor 'man of peace' Dale Harvel

When Bridgett Harvel walked into Bronco Lanes for a fundraiser in honor of her late husband Thursday night, someone was waiting for her.

Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio had made the trip from East Lansing to Warren to pay tribute to her husband, Detroit King football coach Dale Harvel, who suffered a fatal heart attack after a 7-on-7 scrimmage last Friday.

Because his MSU players will be arriving on campus Saturday, Dantonio will be unable to attend the 11 a.m. funeral at the Second Ebenezer Baptist Church. But he wanted to pay his respects to a man he has known for 25 years, dating to his days as an assistant coach at Kansas.

King was a regular recruiting stop for Dantonio while at Kansas, Ohio State and Cincinnati, and nothing has changed as the head coach at MSU. He always looked forward to seeing his friend.

“It was just him welcoming you into the school and making you a part of it,” Dantonio said. “This is a tragic loss.”

The two became friends when Harvel was Jim Reynolds’ defensive coordinator for 23 years. Harvel became head coach seven years ago.

This on top of what Donnie Corley's dad tweeted the other day.

Dantonio already has a better record than Bo ever did at this point in their Big Ten careers. Probably why wolvies dispise him so much.

Yet today in another harbaugh fluff piece Chris speilman proclaims Michigan is back. I knew that asshole was upset when msu defeated Michigan again. He wants the old way of doing things to return. Fuck that prick.

Not sure how Urban Meyer is sizzle. All the dude has done is bend the B1G over his knee and he's won multiple NCs.


'sizzle' is UM and PSUs coaches until they win something. I have a feeling Franklin will never get there. Harbaugh eventually will.

Wake me up when your messiah beats MSU or OSU. Until then, STFU about Harbaugh.

I agree on the first two.

Big House is a much better stadium than MSU though. You arent packed in like sardines once inside the stadium trying to get to your seats and you cant actually go to the bathroom without waiting a half hour.

Of all the stupid shit you've said, this one is right up there. Watching a game in the big hole is as uncomfortable as it gets. Packed in way, way too tight. And it's all so they can run up the attendance numbers. Forget about the SS comparison; it's one of the worst experiences in CFB.

Dude, just come out of the closet already. Admit you are a U of M fan. You may find it liberating.

Most people would argue SS is one of the worst experiences. Trying to walk around before gametime and you are jammed shoulder to shoulder, and the vending/bathroom experience is god awful.

Ive been to every MSU/UM game at the big house since 2004 and have never felt more or less 'packed in' when in the seats than SS.

But I know, its an unpopular narrative with MSU fans.

You can talk about whatever you want Bob. Free speech and all.

I just happen to think that making fun of people's appearance for ten years is a bit over the top.

Have you ever spoke to away fans that have gone to games at SS? None of them are good reviews. The food vending and bathroom situation are freaking terrible at MSU. Thats just a fact.
