Given all that's happened (locker room pooper, criminal investigations, multiple players leaving) I want to see how the season plays out, I have zero expectations outside of above .500. LJ will be our go to guy, he alone will win us 4-5 games. Other than that, I want to see how the players work together on and off the field, does the culture Dantonio worked so hard for stick around (come back, really) after such a hard season/offseason or do they cave. That'll mean a lot for me going forward. If he can find those leaders and they can rise to the occasion, I'll feel good.

I'm in "we'll see" mode right now.

Obviously more to the story and I doubt MSU can say anything. We aren't turning away DL unless there are reasons. I'm sure Solari will get to the bottom of it Rolling Eyes .

That said, people were putting way too much stock in Peat. Similar to Copeland last year. He hasn't played a down of D1 football and hasn't played football in over a year.

Yep. Fuck it. We'll play with who we got. We'll be fine. Keep trimming fat and let's go.

Clearing house academic progress isn't cut and dry. Its possible MSU thought he was good to go until his packet hit the NCAA Clearing House and the NCAA decision wasn't what MSU expected.

Its too bad for Peat because it sounded like he was happy to come back and the defense could have used him.

My guess is they never fully guaranteed him a spot and were not pleased that he was telling people he would be enrolling. I'm sure we'll find out, because this seems like a situation where a well placed leak or two would help get the other side of the story out to the staff's benefit.

Yep. Something always seemed off about him coming back. Comp and others kept hitting that it wasn't a done deal....then it seemed like it was...now it is not. I'm just not surprised in the least.

I await your Comp leak.
