Saban was the coach but didnt have the commitment. I think a guy like Steve Mariucci would be perfect for the Spartans. He has always been charismatic and a great recruiter, and I think he could do better in college than he did in the pros. Plus at MSU his best friend is right next door in Breslin. MSU would have the coach and commitment they so desperately need. That would be a good foundation to build on to become a power once again.
U-M worked incredibly hard to prevent MSU from joining the Big Ten. The Spartans responded by winning the conference's football championship during its first full season. Meanwhile, few people knew there was a football team in Ann Arbor when MSU and ND played their 10-10 "Game of the Century".

Can MSU have a strong football program in a state it shares with U-M? I would say Fla/FSU, Ala/Aub, among others, says "why not"
