The State Of Michigan State Spartan Football:  Waiting On Mark Dantonio

Hondo S. Carpenter

After the 2019 season thankfully came to an end in New York City at the Pinstripe Bowl, all the attention inside Spartan football got focused. Focused on fixing the myriad of problems facing the once-dominant program.

Dantonio talked about the future in New York after the bowl game. He said, "I'm always excited about the future, to be honest with you. I always look forward to the next challenge, the next goal in your life, bringing people with you. "

He went on to add, "I think that's something that you always do. I think that's a natural progression for every football coach or every CEO maybe in the country: What's next."

He also said, "I keep talking to our players about, What is next? How do you handle your challenges coming down the road for you? That's how we'll spring forward. That's always how we've done it."

So while the Spartan Nation waits to find out what changes Mark Dantonio will make to his staff, he has gone about recruiting and checking the transfer portal for any fresh talent he can find to help fix the problems.

In the above video we are joined by long time Spartan Nation senior writer Jon Schopp.  We do a deep dive into Michigan State football.

Every successful CEO knows when he has to change the executive staff in order to adjust to the market conditions and the competition. The same is true in football or any other sport. I know because I am a former NFL Player and former successful CEO of a Billion dollar corporation. If you can't adjust then it is time to retire. Dantonio needs to look in the mirror and be honest with himself and the Spartan Nation. Duffy did that in 1972 and retired gracefully. A loyal Spartan


Amen. So true.
