I don't know if you've heard but MSU now "owns" the state for football recruiting. Unfortunately I have to hear Sam Webb and Andy Evans go overboard. They act as if there is no chance that MSU could ever become a dominant program again and that M could never fall back into their pre-Bo malaise.
I doubt the MSU faithful were too worried about M becoming the dominant program in the state early in Bo's tenure. M probably hadn't won twice in a row against MSU in quite some time. Duffy could get the best players in the state and had a pipeline to the south that M didn't have. It didn't take long for the Spartans to fall and M to become dominant.
I don't like to admit it, but this is a very critical time for the football program. Another bowl-less season will bring out more anger in the fans who suddenly "always doubted RR was the right choice." It would be interesting to see what how much pressure would come down on Martin. I hope we don't have to find out.
