I am unfamiliar with the Leyland situation, all I know is for years on BN there were threads calling out Tress for keeping Bollrus around. Common theme: should be prosecuted for stealing a salary from the university.
Who hires a shitty OC just to announce he won't be calling the plays
He wasn't hired as the OC. MSU hasn't announced anything, and the sources said that he is joining the staff but not sure in what capacity. The rumblings are that he will be Co-OC along with Dave Warner and will coach the TEs and help with gameplanning, while Warner will do most of the playcalling on gameday.
However they announce it, welcome back to 1999. Hope it works out for you boys.... lulz
so basically the MSU staff is a big cluster funk and noone has a clue.....
Uh, Dantonio probably has a clue. no one ITT has a clue, because nothing's been announced yet.
I have a buffalo nickel that says Bollman and Dave Warner Co-call a doozy of a designed run on 3rd down called "Dave."

I hope we use "Walrus Poop" in some capacity.
no satan slants?
Walrus Poo is prolly more effective than Bollman Co calling plays. I feel lulz for you Spartys.
you're out of the loop.
The buckeye fan base is full of ignorant white trash for the most part, not that different than UM. This dude my be the worst OC ever, but we are simply not going to just take your word for it.

showing your frustration about MSU making poor choices doesn't mean you should speak without thought, by doing this you are ignorant white trash.
Man you really do have a stick up your ass full-time these days.
I would guess he has something else up his ass....
Well he has something.
He actually used to be a great poster. Then Same Old Sparty returned and he turned into the whiny poster you see now.
Basically if you had Leyland move to another team, you'd have a vocal contingency glad he's gone and tell whatever team he landed that they're making the worst hire/mistake ever.
I always ask them how did he stay in the business so long, how is he getting to the world series and they always have answers about how it's never him responsible for ANY of the success for the club he's managing.
Bottom line I'm sure he has his issues, but I also have to assume that he's doing something right if he's been in the business this long.
I'm sure the truth lies somewhere in between the arguments of the extreme haters and the blowers.
This guy is a trip, anything dealing with bollman he expresses his anger by referring to the lower digestive track and scatalogical insults. Look at his name LOL!
"Trick Play" - slants.

I don't understand why you guys are OK with this. Just because the guy that is consensus bad will not be calling plays doesn't mean you guys should be happy. He's a coach released from his past 3 jobs and even if you want him for recruiting, you already recruit decently in Ohio and he doesn't recruit. In the hypothetical scenario he did, I don't know who Bollman is going to recruit that Dantonio or one of his guys couldn't already from the Ohio area.
I'm not bashing MSU, just saying you might as well hire a guy that at least adds to your recruiting or coaching. Bollman does neither. And you guys are defending him saying "He's just going to be our oline coach." Fine, he's your oline coach, but aren't you guys pissed at Dantonio for not hiring an oline coach that actually adds something? How about a guy with connections in a state like California or Florida or Texas? Maybe a guy that can actually get Caleb Benenoch and Pat Kugler to visit campus? That might be a good direction for the offensive line at MSU. Aren't you pissed at Hollis for not allowing Dantonio to court a "coordinator" that isn't met with laughs by literally everyone and was released from his last 3 jobs?
If you're happy with him, fine. I just think when all the other Big Ten fans are this happy, it probably means something

I think you have to look at it from an MSU perspective. couple of things I dont' expect you guys to understand, and that's fine, but The amount of trolling on this subject is semi bizaar. If he's bad, so be it, be happy abou that. But just look at what we see at MSU: When he was here, he started building up a program, under Saban, that ws in the muck for about 3 or 4 years. We could see the improvement. Many of us were disapointed he went to the NFL because we saw improvement. (I understand what you guys saw may be the opposite.) When he returned to coach against us, I personally was bummed out. OSU then took off, and even won a NC with him and Dantonio, two coaches that were popular and, at the time, innovative in approach to coaching posititons. That's what we saw at MSU. Then, loosely following his career, we see that Tress, a very good coach, kept him on for quite awhile, and who can argue with the success he had there under tress. Now you guys tell us, he was only responsible for the 6-7 season, not the successful ones. O.K., we can see that from your point of view, but I personally find it a bit weird. He didn't do crap, when you were winning, but he sucked balls because he was in the mix when you had your horrible season with all the suspensions.
We're looking at it from two perspectives. I will never understand the non coaches here who think Tressel had this conservative offense with all the great recievers and complicated formations and passes out of the backfield. Tress kicked peoples asses because of some great offense. When you go from great success to a horrible season, I can see looking at coaches and hearing stories of coaches arguing in lockerrooms and placing blame. It's what we do. I also think Dantonio isn't a stupid man. To do what he did at MSU in 6 years is remarkable in my opinion. I'm not saying he's made us a dominant taeam in the big ten, but anyone who knows MSU, and what you guys did to us in JLS last year, knows that he's done as much or more then Saban ever did here. He needs to prove this next year, as last year was a step back. That's why every time you think Dantonio has made a bad move or has taken the gas pipe, he seems to be a step ahead of us all with a "little giants' or a "mouse trap" or that damn fake punt against Michigan last year that should have made us both 7-4.
I understand your view point, but as a Spartan who has suffered our football program way more then I've enjoyed it in the last 40 years, you need to see what many of us are seeing too.
