That salary number may not be 100% accurate. So, does Bill Beekman have the balls?
No, he does not
Team Luke Fickell
Yall just need Harlan back
He shhhhould be on his way
Nah, that’s ok. Thanks for offering.
There has to be better out there than this
I was thinking we should see what it would cost to bring Nick Saban home but then I remembered he hasn’t proven he can win at the NFL level yet
We are Michigan State, we can’t / won’t pay anything near the big boys, so the options will be limited.
I said Jim Leonhard or Bryan Harsin, what do you think devine?
He’s doing well at cincy but so did butch jones
Don’t care for either of those tbh
Wow, that cut deep
It’s also basically the exact same story for how we hired Dantonio...former OSU d coordinator, turned solid head coach at Cincy.
Was pretty confident about those two, now I don't know what to think
Everyone wins at Boise and everyone plays good D at wiscy
Wouldn’t you wanna go away from that?
I think they might have to go with a good coordinator. Maybe aranda? It's a good job as long as Michigan isn't dominating the state
Dantonio is currently campaigning for a big facilities investment. It becomes a lot more attractive if he can get it done in the next few months.
Naw, Dantonio has been bad the last 4 years, but before that he won 3 big ten championships, made the playoffs once and he’s like 10-4 vs Michigan. I have no idea if Fickell can even achieve half of that, but to start over using a similar recipe seems worth it.
Dantonio is clearly checked out and just waiting to cash in his retention bonus he gets in the middle of January.
Everything we've heard is that Fickell wouldn't leave Cincinnati for Michigan State.
There will always be Walmart kids in state that will go to Michigan no matter what. Have to keep other schools out of the state and be #2 option in Ohio. We are neither of those things at the moment.
Would Fickell even leave UC for MSU?
my friend in the AD doesn’t think it will happen
Everything I’m hearing is no.
That's the problem. Nobody can achieve that. If we go high risk high reward, the ceiling is still the ceiling. Dantonio got it there. But the higher probability is we hit the floor again...4-7 wins a year
The game has passed him by too, he was a pretty good coach, sad to see him go like this
I would assume he is still very bitter about taking the L in Columbus so no.
Wisconsin is the model, right? Great offensive lines, great running backs, great defense. You guys were doing that not too long ago. Michigan shunned that model and they haven't been recruiting offensive lineman that well.
Fickell wanted the wvu job. Why wouldn’t he go to MSU?
Should go after Matt Campbell
Because he loves Ohio.
Would be a great hire, but also probably someone who would use MSU as another stepping stone. He’ll most likely also have better offers anyway.
Yes, but honestly we never recruited OL that well either.
We also can't afford him. He already makes more than Dantonio and we will be looking for a cost savings, not increased spending.
We should have Tom Izzo teach the football team that drill he makes the basketball team do with football pads or something
Or put the football team in basketball pads and let DDC drape his nuts on their face while dunkiNg
Why do you say he makes more? I thought he was in the 3.5MM range?
I got $5 on it
Lipp hope you fire Dantonio’s bum ass and make a great hire.
Fine if we move on but fuck Fickell. Hard Pass
I thought dantonio base was lower and the $4.4 number included other incentives. May be wrong, but I don't think we can make the bump lifestyle changing regardless.
