    Don’t bring logic in here...the media has been telling us all day that paying a bunch of money for a coach, even when your school can more than afford it, is stupid and it’s not fair that the Big Ten and the SEC have more money than the rest of college football.

    Dantonio bought MSU a ton of goodwil, because most schools would get obliterated if they went all out for a 5-7 coach

    Honestly Mel Tucker have a hilariously mediocre interview I was expecting like diet James Franklin with a grizzled edge. Whatever hire stud recruiters probably better off the mic no jim Bollman

    I think you were trying to say his introductory press conference was not impressive which is true. Wish they had taken more time so he could prepare better.

    He did sound more comfortable after he finished the prepared statement and got into q&a, also I think he was better than that in Colorado. He did say a few good things, I'm still excited.

    Yeah, it wasn't very good at all...I don't know why they felt the need to do that yesterday as opposed to today. Dude accepts the job in the early morning hours...has to clean out his office in Colorado/everything else that comes with it...gets on a jet in the afternoon to fly across the country and then you basically throw him in front of the cameras to give a big speech. It could have easily waited til today.

    The premise to me is ridiculous but so is college football so the idea that Mel Tucker being hired away might cause the Pac-12 to do something crazy is the offseason I need. Go pay Texas and Ok 50% of league revenues to get them to leave and start the insanity.

    The only possible thing more indicative of B1G dick swinging would be Rutgers hiring someone who didn’t grow up eating Taylor ham.

    For anyone wondering why MSU fans have been saying the Blackwell stuff is purely a garbage tactic to publicly shame Dantonio and the university in a hope to settle.

    We've been approaching the point where its just flat out better to be a coach at a mid-level school than a big school for a while. I think we're there now.

    There are 3 or 4 coaches in the Big 10 who are going to make $100 million over their careers by being just pretty good and pulling an semi-notable upset every other year. Joe Tiller was born 30 years too early.

    Mid-level program, not mid-level coach. Fleck and Brohm were the main ones I was thinking of, but any coach who can (or wants to) stay in their current job for the next 15-20 years or so should pass that mark. Chryst, Fitzgerald if he wants to negotiate, Frost maybe if he delivers a good year soon. Some will get fired, some will move on to bigger jobs, but some will stay at a place where they can just be pretty good and continue to get raises and extensions.

    And if your post was just a reason to call either Harbaugh or Michigan mid-level, then good work.

    MSU basketball nets $10 million a year.

    MSU football nets $40 million.

    (Per local news source)

    If you compare %, Izzo is killing it

    have to pay to maintain or improve your top sports revenue generator.

    Yeah this is like when people start clutching their pearls comparing football coach salaries to the school president. They're just not apples-apples comparisons. If Izzo wants the big $$ he should have thrown his hat in the ring last week.

    Michigan is a mid-level program. Harbaugh might be a mid-level coach

    Last time this happened we ended up with a significantly better candidate than the one who turned us down. I expect more of the same here.
