....in 2 straight years, while beating 3 Top 10 teams. Yet to you, somehow, their coach is on par with Kelly. If the two coaches traded rosters, Kelly'd probably be 0-4 against him.
Yes, Kelly's Cincy teams did better, likely because Dantonio's pro-style offense is not as good a fit as Kelly's spread offense for a tier 2 program: they can't get the big bodies or depth required to run a physical offense.
As for recruiting, Saban didn't have Top 10 classes in East Lansing, either.
But, hey, feel free to denigrate Dantonio while he racks up 11-win seasons and wins BCS bowl games.
