Saturday's 34-24 win over Ohio State was for this year's team, but it was a culmination of a lot of work by a lot of people. In winter 2006, Mark Dantonio took over a program in shambles and just waiting for the next collapse to come. I've long maintained that the win over Penn State in the 2007 regular season finale was the most important of the Dantonio era. MSU needed to win its final two games to reach a bowl, and it did, the first sign that things were going to be different.
