    Probably didn't want to reshuffle everything, but absolute piss poor timing.

    Those that said he was just looking to get his bonus and bounce were right. Should have paid him early and started the search in December.

    Don't really follow recruiting all that much but signed the majority of our class in the early signing period. Only one really talented kid, RB from Georgia who is fast, who I would imagine won't sign now.

    MSU should just let Tressel be the interim coach for 2020. Too much shit around the program right now to try to land a good up and comer.

    They should hire the female RB coach from the 49ers. Be groundbreaking.

    I saw the bonus was $4,300,000 if coaching on January 15, 2020.

    Worth it!

    Edit: Now see someone shared that info above as well.

    Matt Campbell is appearing at a Catholic Men’s Conference. Take that info as you will and reassess if you’d like him on your team.

    The frontrunner to replace Dantonio is Luke Fickell, according to sources with knowledge of the athletic department’s thinking. No deal is in place, the sources said.

    Mike Tressel has been named the team's acting coach as the school searches for a permanent replacement.
