It tells me everything I need to know about your program if you think a Sugar Bowl bid makes that season successful when you couldn't even get to Indy to play for B1G Championship and Pasadena.
Who gives a F**K? OSU assistants went to see him last week too. The point was the kid was impressed that on SIGNING DAY, those other coaches took time out of their busy day to show the kid what he meant to their programs. I don't think MD likes recruiting, he acts like it's a hassle.
You're really reaching now, Tressel himself has said multiple times how strong of a recruiter and evaluator of talent MD is. You're basing this one one tweet he sent out, you do know what they say about assumptions, right?
So if you knew I was f-ing around, then why bother?

Why do you blame everyone else for your failures?
1999, don't get rolled by Purdue and Wisconsin and you're not bitching today
2010, don't get rolled by Iowa and you're not bitching today.
2011, don't lose to Wisconsin in the CCG and don't get rolled by Notre Dame and Nebraska, and you're not bitching today.
Your program has controlled its own destiny in all of it, and has failed time and again. Don't bitch to us because you follow an also ran program.
If your season was so successful, why you here telling us how unfair it is?
Tressel was also known for putting together coaching staffs that were full of yes men....Every time I see MD interviewed, he looks like he is just sick of everything. Yesterday he couldn't even act like he was excited about any of his recruits. They asked him "Which of your recruits do you see being able to make an impact maybe in their Freshman year".... MD pulls out this gem "The Kicker we got ........ " THE KICKER???? That's the recruit that he was most excited about??? You are correct, he is a Tressel guy... Tress always said the punt was the most important play in football....good luck with your kicker, hope he's your MVP this year.
I clearly stated what defined success for me. I said that we lost the Rose Bowl fair and square in 2011, but that after playing and winning the Rose Bowl, my next priority was to get a good matchup against a good team and win, we did that by beating Georgia. I didn't say that season was unfair, you're mistaking me for another poster who said that.
I did say that the series of events that lead to us not going to Pasadena in 2010 was unfair, so regardless of not going to the Rose Bowl that season, I still see it as a major success as we won the B1G and we were the best team that year. If you disagree with that I'd like to know why you think we didn't deserve to go over Wisconsin.
He also mentioned a lot of other players, you just chose to misquoted him. He talked a lot about Dennis Finley making an impact on the O line. He talked about all 3 of our running backs begin able to make an impact as they are larger backs and all our experienced guys are smaller, so he will need one of the freshmen to compliment Hill and Thompson. He also said a lot about Damien Terry coming in and seeing how he progresses with the offense, as well as the difficulty of having any freshmen start on our defense because it is hard to learn with all the looks we run and they will need a very high football IQ to be able to get in early in their freshmen year so it was up to them to stand out in the spring and fall to do that.
If all of a sudden you are bailing on Tressel's opinion when he brought OSU so much success than I don't even know how to respond to that. you're just rationalizing however you need to rationalize to fit yoru decision of disliking Dantonio because you think you know him based on some off the wall assumptions of his personality in a press conference you clearly didn't watch all the way through.
This explains why Mich fans didn't cry after losing to Ohio State in 2006 that they still should get to play for the NC

I still laugh about Mich fans bragging about being in that Sugar Bowl, as if the entire nation was drooling at the matchup of Big 10 Legends Division runner up vs ACC runner up....
So in other words, MSU should have to go 13-0 to get to a BCS game every year, since they don't have as large of a fanbase as Michigan.
Michigan can go 11-2, lose to MSU, and still sneak into bowl games over them for one reason: more money
Its a crock. Change this garbage system.
Yeah which team ended up being better this year? Georgia or VA Tech?
How'd your team do in your bowl game?
Nice avatar, btw. Are you into those emo guys with the super skinny pants?

Keep crying while I wear my Sugar Bowl Champions hat.
Yost is always watching over
Louisville fan, are you?
**MSU coach Mark Dantonio went to see 2014 four-star wide receiver commit Drake Harris Friday. Per a source close to Harris, Dantonio showing up meant a lot and is just one of the many reasons why Harris remains committed to MSU.
Well, we won the 2000 Orange Bowl and the 2012 Sugar Bowl.
Can your team say that?
And lol @ poking fun at my avatar. He's a pyschopath and he makes Hannibal Lecter look like a pussy. But don't take my word for it. Take the word of a Pulitzer Prize winner.
And so, in a way, begins...
Btw, has everyone noticed what's happened here?
This was a thread between the 2 big boys on the block wondering if they would become too strong for all the other kids to take on.
Little brother couldn't handle being left out of the conversation and just had to interrupt.
The inferiority-complex is really showing through Sparty.

And I never said your 2011 season was unsuccessful, I don't know why you got hung up on it.
I feel that tOSU was the best team in the league that year. Wisconsin was the second best team. MSU was the third best.
Awful lot of crying Spartans for this being a Michigan board.
Yea, keep blaming the system instead of your program for the 3 losses that kept you out of a BCS bowl. Sounds solid.
You know whats funny, over on the Spartan board they are complaining about how Meyer's going to tell the rest of the B1G coaches (except Hoke of course) to step their game up in recruiting.
No wonder they're little brother to you guys.
