That’s the easiest part of Dennis Dodd’s job this week, CBSSports.com‘s senior college football columnist. All he has to do it get people pissed off by writing insensitive, foul, and untrue attacks on good people who are on track to become major football head coaches after the Spartans’ appointment in Pasadena, Calif. next January. The Spartans’ trip to then-No. 18 Michigan showed that nothing was wrong between Mark Dantonio and Don Treadwell and lent some further definition to the Big Ten race. Otherwise, Dodd has to be really worried. He has got to know by now that CBSSports.com has a fallback, a first runner-up should he not be able to fulfill his duties as senior columnist.
