    Yep. I remembered doing that. I missed by a long shot. By a universe. I'm glad I was so far off the mark and I am very very proud of them. Sometimes you hit. Sometimes you miss. That's the fun of predicting. It's funny how people are quick to point out your misses but they rarely, if ever, bring out the ones you called correctly.

    By the way. Gazoo pointed it out several posts ago.

    Have a nice day.

    I've heard a lot of nice things said about Dantonio but you many have come up with the greatest compliment yet, Tuna Helper. I would love to compare their accomplishments side by side when Dantonio's career ends.

    Yes, but let's see what Dantonio does. Of course he likely won't approach Bo's numbers but it will still be fun to look. Remember though. The league as a whole is much more competitive now ( back then it was only Michigan and Ohio State) and Santonio doesn't have the luxury of getting tons of five star recruits. He is lucky to get a four star or two.

    I think Nemos right. Dantonio will be a legend at MSU every bit as much as Bo is with Michigan. I know the expectations are different and the bar is lower so it would be foolish to compare the two against each other. ..at least for now.

    But George Perles is a legend at MSU. He ended up 68 - 67. He won two Big Ten championships. Dantonio's record is much much better. He's only one one championship but almost got two. I think he has surpassed Perles. Right now it looks like Dantonio is building a great program.

    Dantonio has a near 70% winning percentage at MSU so far.
    Bo was at 80% at Michigan for his career.
    Lloyd Carr was 75% at Michigan...
    Duffy Daugherty had a 61% wins record at MSU...
    I consider him their benchmark for coaching...
    ...
    In 21 seasons at Michigan...Bo only had 4 teams below 2nd place......
    Every player at Michigan during his tenure won a Big Ten Championship.

    Calling Perles a legend is a huge stretch. He was good, but a legend?

    Remember...We are talking Michigan State. Not much of a history here other than Duffy...until the last few seasons.

    Dantonio (2 conference titles, 7 bowl games) compares well to Perles (2 conference titles, 7 bowl games).....notsomuch to Bo (13 conference titles, 17 bowl games).

    Dantonio is 57 years old. He'll be 58 during the 2014 season. His Record is 64-29 at MSU.

    I will project 10 more seasons at MSU, which will make him 68 years old...and ready to retire.

    During the next 10 years, he will have a 97-31 record...for a 76% winning percent.

    He will retire with an MSU record of 161-60...

    ...Compared to 122-40 for Lloyd Carr at Michigan.

    Since nobody has more than roughly 100 wins at MSU...

    Dantonio WILL become the MSU benchmark...Kind like Bo is at Michigan

    That's exactly what I was babbling on about but without the nice data to back it up. :cheeky-smiley-012:

    I am really hoping that He stays on at MSU for those 10 years.
    It's time for the Big Ten to challenge the SEC in football.
    Hopefully, 4-5 schools can put up similar numbers over that time.
    I'd like to see Brady be the one at UM..........

    I hope he stays too. I think he will. I think he enjoys the kids too much to go pro and he doesn't need that anyhow after one heart scare. I have no way of knowing this but he doesn't seem the type to jump ship. At $4 million a year I don't think cash will be an issue. Chip Kelly was happy in college ball but I think he needed the challenge. I don't think Dantonio feels he needs a bigger challenge. Ohio State will more than keep him busy. Michigan will be back and there will be others. Yeah, I think the Big Ten is challenging enough. Plus he is trying to build a powerhouse for years to come.

    On a scale of 1 to 10 level of concern of him leaving is a two (2). And only that high because I haven't heard it from his lips that it is permanent. Plus we don't know what in unforeseeable events will come down the pipe.

    I was actually talking about his chance of success long term, and being able to stay on at MSU.
    Looks like you have ultimate confidence that he'll be able to remain...or
    You feel confident in another Nemo...MSU prediction.

    Now I know how Drath felt when we kept posting hot cheerleader pictures in his Philadelphia Eagles thread.
