It seems to me like something is up with Fleck. I can't remember the last time a coach was considered a hot up-and-comer like this and wasn't plucked from his small school.

Maybe he's putting the brakes on any talk right now. Cotton Bowl will be the most exciting thing for that program ever. Gotta be focused on that.

Yep, and that's going to turn off some schools who want their new coach to get started right now.

Well, that's the feeling I get from him. Maybe in practicing their due diligence, schools have read this thread and reported back to their respective search committees what you and I have said about him. We're powerful men, you and I are, DWags.

Anyone else see one of the post game interviews with Fleck after the MACtion championship? The guy asked him if he would be coaching the Broncos in the bowl game and he hesitated for a solid 3 seconds then said something like "we're just enjoying this win right now". Seemed clear to me that his mind was elsewhere.

So the bye week is in week 2, just like 2016? Seriously, fire Hollis. No by weeks should ever occur before week 5 at least.

Should this thread be renamed to just the 2017 football thread? Or are we going with the optimists' approach?

Planning for south end zone addition on the agenda.

MSU board to meet Friday

Personally, I rather see the east side fixed up and we don't need more seats anyway. Maybe the south expansion is just some kind of concourse though.

Dantonio added Lewerke would have kept playing if didn't get hurt and has earned "being the guy." So he's No. 1 headed into spring

Graham Couch ‏@Graham_Couch 2m2 minutes ago
Dantonio ends presser with this: Brian Lewerke's done enough to be the guy to beat out. He's the guy.
