    That salary number may not be 100% accurate. So, does Bill Beekman have the balls?

    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.

    It’s also basically the exact same story for how we hired Dantonio...former OSU d coordinator, turned solid head coach at Cincy.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
