Yeah, I hate getting rejects that coached the top cornerback in the country, had one of the best defenses in the country three years in a row, just won top recruiter in the country by Rivals, etc. we should be very sad with who we've gotten this year.
If you say so. My take of your ex-MSU guys:
Ellis Johnson: Good coach. That's the one guaranteed home-run hire among them. EJ is a damn fine coordinator.
Charlie Harbison: 2007 was good with him, but given how bad 2008 was defensively, I'd say 2007 was left over Ellis Johnson. Could be wrong about him since my data set is limited.
Melvin Smith: He's ok, but attributing Banks success to Smith is like attributing Newtons success to whomever was your QBs coach was in '10. Banks is talented enough to be damn good regardless. Smith isn't a bad coach, but he's not a superstar either. There's a reason he's been a position coach his whole career.
JB Grimes: ROFLMAO. Not a good judge or developer of talent and a
ing HORRIBLE O line coach. Grimes OLs are as leaky as submarine screen doors. It was like an annual event during the Croom years. 3rd offensive play of the season, linebacker would get loose, blast our QB and break his collarbone. Hope your QB is a tough SB. I'd bet money he's the first one fired off the staff and probably with good reason.
