We have already speculated on who would replace Jim Harbaugh if the NFL rumors earlier this month had been true. For fairness sake, we have mocked up a list of candidates for the Michigan State side of the equation in the circumstance that Mark Dantonio departs the Spartans program. So if the leading man of the Spartan Nation starts Doomsday in East Lansing and he leaves the Green and White today, who would replace him?

Again, we will analyze the practicality, fit, and prowess of each potential hire and rate them with our “Doomsday rater” to show who could potentially be a great fit for MSU.
