Dantonio will be judged by what he does against Hoke's Michigan.
He can send Rich Rod a "Thank you" Christmas card for giving him 3 victories.
As far as I'm concerned, Dantonio is 1-2 against Michigan Men Head Coaches.

Michigan had a tough time with every program not named Indiana for a good stretch of your defined time frame. You better hope coach d wins this year, otherwise he will have a losing record against every Michigan coach not named richrod.
How sad is it that MSU doesn't allow a TD, and they still lose the game. Lmao
Seriously - we knew their D was good going in, but their O was just abysmal.
As the OP, I want to clarify, the WIDENING gap will be based on talent. UM's last two recruiting classes clearly dwarf MSU's. So if this trend continues, UM with top 5 class and MSU with 30+ ranked classes do you truly believe there will not be a gap? I'm not trying to start anything with you, it just seems very logical to me that OSU/UM are clearly separating themselves from the pack. OSU/UM had 32 of the BIG's 44 Top 300 recruits. That's not good for the BIG. 10 teams share 12 top 300 recruits when OSU/UM have more than that by themselves. Again, that's a gap my friend.
Yes. Yes they do.
The delusion is strong over there, and many of the ones who venture over here truly believe that Dantonio is such a good coach that it doesn't really matter how good his recruiting class is, he'll turn them into stars.
I know right. I mean he did such a great job in turning them into world beaters last year.
I like Dantonio as he was a big part of our NC win...BUT I've got a hint for him.....Yesterday, right after LOI have arrived, I know Urban, Hoke and 2 other coaches called Drake Harris ('14 WR) who is "committed" to MSU....guess who he didn't get a call from? Yup, Dantonio....It's the little things that look the biggest. Drake was impressed with the coaches that took time to call him when they were busy yesterday, so I'm guessing he also took note of who didn't call.
Do you think Lloyd can forward the template of the card that he sends to John L Smith?
Michigan was whooping MSU's a** in football long before Smith arrived.
Yeah, when we lead the series 68-32-5, you can't put that entire differential on Smith.
I don't think he would mind.
Heck, I'm tempted to send John L Smith a Christmas card every year.
Prior to JLS's arrival, MSU had won two of the previous four, and UM had won only once in EL in the previous decade. No wonder you guys are so excited about that "widening" 5 second gap between UM and MSU this year.
1. 1999 was Nick Saban's victory. But you can send a "Thank You" card to Lloyd for going back-and-forth between Brady and Henson.
2. 2001 was clock gate
But remind me...when was the last time State went to the Rose/Sugar/Fiesta/Orange Bowl or won the Big Ten?
This is fun.
MSU won the Big Ten in 2010.

He also had a conversation with Dantonio before he decided to go on any other official visits and Dantonio and him were on the same page. I'm sure part of that understanding was that Dantonio wasn't going to be calling him nonstop when he has already recruited him harder and longer than any of these other coaches who are only now taking notice of him. You guys are playing catch up, not the other way around.
Won the B1G in 2010, and without OSU cheating we would have gone to the Rosebowl, instead a Wiscy team we beat and had the same B1G record went.
Weird. Michigan State has no Rose Bowl berth to show for it...
Oh that's right...State didn't win the Big Ten title outright.
Better luck this year. Or not.
I knew I liked you for a reason.
Umm, 2010 Big Ten Champions?
Trivia question regarding the MSU-UM game in 2001: After reviewing the tape of the game, to which team did the Big 10 issue an apology for decisions of the officials during the last drive of the game? (Hint: It's not Michigan)
When's the last time either of your programs won an OUTRIGHT Big Ten Title in either sport? Ten years ago??
At the end of the conference schedule
Michigan State: 7-1 : 11:1
Wisconsin: 7-1 : 11:1
Ohio State: vacated season
Michigan State won head to head match up with Wisco, but didn't play OSU. Had Rosebowl stolen from us by Delaney waiting till after the bowls to punish OSU and giving tiebreaker to Wisco.
You can believe that somehow this season doesn't count because of this , but that doesn't make you right, just unreasonable with your desire to believe we failed when we didn't.
