VIDEO: Klatt says MSU is nation's best current program
Seven people voted Michigan State as the nation’s top team. Fox Sports analyst Joel Klatt was one of them.
Klatt, however, didn’t stop there. He believes that Michigan State — not defending champion Ohio State — is the best current program in college football.
“I looked at the last year, year and a half. The best program in college football over that time frame is Michigan State,” Klatt said. “They’ve only lost three games in the last three years. Last year they lost to the two final participants. They’ve got one of the best wins in the country beating Oregon at home.
“They have earned the No. 1 spot.”
Klatt also went on to say that he believes MSU coach Mark Dantonio is the best in college football. Why? Location, location, location.
“I think right now, they have the best coach in college football,” Klatt said. “…because of what he’s doing, and more importantly, where he’s doing it. He’s building this in East Lansing. This is not Ohio State. This is not a blue blood.”
Does he have a point?
