2012.04.20Spartans' D'Antonio Serves Up Some Smack Talk

Coach D'Antonio of the Michigan State Spartans gave a pointed response to a recent question posed by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett about the probability of a U of M resurgence as a Big Ten football powerhouse. "We're laying in the weeds. We've beat Michigan the last four years. So where's the threat?"

My take: I think MSU fans are too used to focusing on the U of M. I'd bet many would be satisfied with State's football season as long as the Sparty hands the Wolverines a loss. Perhaps we Spartans became that way over the years precisely because Michigan historically is a football powerhouse. They're still a damn good program in the Big Ten. If I had to guess, I'd say that Coach D is probably pretty tired of being asked about the Wolverines. He's been building a Hell of a program in East Lansing, and not just for the inter-state rivalry. It's high time for Spartans to set our sights higher than what's happening down I-94. Michigan State has been playing national-quality football and should begin thinking more about competing with the PAC-10 and the SEC, and less about the maize and blue.
