MVC Excel look and feel grid

I am looking for a clean example of a grid that is configured like Excel.

The grid will show 5 columns.
Scout Group#,  Email, F Name, L Name, Phone Number.

The grid will always show 20 rows.
(1) To add a new child, just type in any blank row.
(2) To edit a row just type of the existing data.  
(3) To delete a row, just blank out the columns.  Just like a basic ASP or Windows Grid.  

  I am pretty rusty at coding but I do have the JQuery DataTable showing the desired information.  I have not found a way to read the grid data back to the controller.

Can you point me towards an article or example that will do a task like this?  Including how to read back the entire grid during postback?

I do not need advanced features, performance is not a consideration.
Thank you.

The simple inputs shown in the example work perfectly well in a table.

<table>
        <thead>

        </thead>
        <tbody>
            <tr>
                <td><input type="text" name="[0].Title" value="Curious George0" /></td>
                <td><input type="text" name="[0].Author" value="H.A. Rey" /></td>
                <td><input type="text" name="[0].DatePublished" value="2/23/1973" /></td>

----
 public ActionResult UpdateInts(ICollection<Book> ints)
        {

            return View(ints);
        }
