Michigan State football vs. Michigan football: ‘It’s not a game’
Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio has taken a swipe at Michigan, calling the Spartans’ football program a “bunch of losers” in an interview with the Associated Press.
Dantonio is in his sixth season at Michigan State, and the Spartans are just one loss away from finishing with a record of 14-3.
They are tied with Alabama for the Big Ten’s worst mark at 2-14, though they are on track for a win over the Crimson Tide on Sunday.
Dantonios hopes to add to that streak this season.
“I think we’re going to be in a position where we’re playing well.
We’re going into the bye week with a really good feeling about our team,” Dantonians told AP.
“I think it’s going to help us and we’ll be back to where we need to be.
We have a chance to make the bowl game this year, which we didn’t do last year.
I think we have a great chance to do it this year.
It’s not going to mean much for the season.”
While Michigan State isn’t the Big 12’s best team, Dantonius said his team isn’t necessarily the worst in the conference.
“It’s just a bunch of losers,” he said.
“You’re always going to have those who go down the wrong path and have a little bit of self-doubt.
We all have our own stories, and we’re all going to come out of it stronger than we were.
I just know we’re a good football team, and I know we can do it.”
Dantonios was named the Big East Coach of the Year in 2013 after leading the Huskies to a 10-5 record and an appearance in the College Football Playoff.
He has a 6-7 record in his last eight seasons at Michigan.
