Mark Dantonio has a dream of how to settle it on the field.

It’s a dream of an America where only one SEC team is allowed to qualify for college football’s playoff.  Nobly phrased, of course.

“My vision is that you should be the champion of your league before you can be the champion of the country. That would be my vision if I was doing it. It might not happen like that.”

It won’t, Mark.  Be patient, though.  When the playoffs expand to an eight-team field, that’ll probably be large enough to accommodate a Big Ten school.

    Mark Dantonio is an errand boy, sent by Jim Delany the B1G grocery clerk, to collect a bill from Baghdad Bob

      I think MSU has a great chance to play in this year’s mini playoff. And if they win out, I feel they will have earned a spot.


      • I know we’re supposed to hate all things B1G related, but I’ve actually developed an affinity for MSU the last few years. I admire what Dantonio has done in building that program, and I would argue Narduzzi may be the best DC in the country. The defense they have built over the last 4 or 5 years without a bunch of 4 and 5 star guys is dang impressive.

          This. MSU is probably my favorite big 10 team in football and basketball. I love the blue collar gritty attitude, oh and the fact that they served urban a tasty tasty slice of papa John’s humble pie.

    I like Dantonio as well, his thoughts about the playoff are really pretty legit. The committee is going to make sure there are never two SEC teams in the playoff. There will always be four teams from four different geographic regions of the country to ensure maximum tv viewership and revenue.

    Or, you could do like the ESPN turdbrains did and match the two SEC teams right off the bat – except they are both from the West (like the East has no chance in Atlanta) and an SECCG has already been played.

    Yep, they have a way to downgrade the possibility already.
