    What do the analytics say about Pat Shurmur, Mike Tressel or Harlon Barnett?

    I don't think he would have much data on Shurmur, Barnett. Tucker being in the college game since 2015 does allow him to form a stronger opinion one would guess.

    Well Barnett has been in the college game longer than 2015 and just got let go by FSU and that data was not kind on him.

    Ultimately who the hell knows how this will turn out. He likely will either succeed wildly or boom in a bit way. But excited to have him after the candidates we thought we were getting.

    I went and looked up the coaching grades that he and his partner had for the guys you mentioned. Barnett has a career coaching grade of D+, Tucker D+. Mike Tressel has a grade of A but less than three years of coaching data so more time is needed to fully judge.

    Dantonio was graded at B.

    You're correct just because they aren't highly graded doesn't mean they can't succeed. Anything is possible but not always probable.

    The only MSU coach to win it besides Saban and Dantonio was JLS against unequivocally the worst PSU team in modern history. :warn:

    Probably not, but I'm just excited that the university was willing to make that kind of commitment financially. Shows they do not want to fade into complete irrelevance like i feared.

    I'm so fucking jacked about this hire especially if MSU hires a hyper aggressive and relatively dirty recruiting staff. Thank God dantonio's boring dry lazy stale ass staff is out! I want wild west level cheating and crippling paranoia throughout the B1G east powers and this might have solidified it. Fickell would have been pretty boring compared to what we are about to see

    I was actually hauling demo stuff to the dump this week in a MSU shirt and the garbage man yells at me “Go Blue!”
