Dantonio now appears to be moonwalking away from his slap at Michigan regarding abuse of remote camps and the ensuing NCAA ban that's up for the imprimatur of the NCAA Directors.
He said the “abuse” comment was over his concern that every program would be diving head-first into multiple camp stops each summer.
“That speaks to how many people are headed in that direction this year,” Dantonio said, “not just one specific university. That’s what everybody had on the docket. Everybody was on the docket for that, including us.”
Pretty funny stuff. I am pleased that he
apologized for weasel-worded his way around his misstep, even if he did so by stretching the truth a bit.
Sometimes I think the MSM is actually trying to troll him:
- Western Michigan -- 383
- Oregon -- 432
- Air Force -- 428
- Central Michigan -- 340
- Purdue -- 301
- Rutgers -- 349
- Michigan -- 230
- Indiana -- 389
- Nebraska -- 499
- Maryland -- 289
- Ohio State -- 132
That would be the South Carolina-SC. Dantonio is an alum of SC so this rumor has legs. Heck why couldn't he be considered for Southern Cal?
Oh yes I forgot, MSU is a destination not a stop.
As other MGoUsers pointed out there is still no game time for the MSU game. It's starting to shape up like this could be a top-15 matchup two weeks from now. The number 3, 6, 7, 8, 19, 21, 23 ranked teams all lost games yesterday so there will be some serious reshuffling in the rankings today.
Michigan will almost certainly move into the top 20, while Northwestern was already No. 16 before their shutout yesterday, so they'll move into the top 15. A win vs NW next week would catapult the good guys into the same position.
What are the odds we still haven't heard a game time because the value of the game won't be decided until next week? Could this be a potential College Gameday game?
