Before he even picks out his office furniture upon being named MSU head coach, Mark Dantonio told the world he'd put a "countdown clock" up in the MSU locker room in order to tick off the days until the Michigan game.
Then, when asked about the Wolverines' loss this year to Appalachian State, Dantonio jokingly asked if he should have a "moment of silence" for the Wolverines.
Most recently, in the days leading up to last Saturday's M/MSU game, Dantonio asked how long MSU was going to continue to "bow down to Michigan."
Yet when Michigan rises up to the challenge and beats MSU - after having to listen to all the crap above, suddenly Dantonio can't take any smack talk directed back at his team.
In his press conference yesterday, Dantonio expressed his anger over Michigan players pausing for a “moment of silence” at midfield at the end of the game in response to Dantonio's Appy State comment.
“This game is an important game. If they want to mock us, I’m telling them, it’s not over. They can print all that crap all they want all over their locker room — it’s not over. It will never be over here. It’s just starting,” said Dantonio.
Then, when asked about Mike Hart's comments in which he referred to MSU as Michigan's "little brother," Dantonio responded like an 8th grader trying to impress his friends in gym class.
“Does Hart have a little brother or is he the little brother?” Dantonio asked. “I don’t know, he’s…that tall.”
Dantonio placed his hand to his chest to illustrate Hart’s stature.
Ooooooh. Good one, Stifler.
These are college kids. And you basically called the Michigan players out with the clock shit and mocked them with you moment of silence line. So you think the Michigan players might have been a little anxious to do some talking of their own after they won? They didn't say shit before the game - you did. Let me say it again: you put a fucking countdown clock up in the locker room!
So get over yourself. Seriously. And if you can't take the response when you lose (due to some crappy coaching, by the way) then don't start it by talking shit in the first place. Because to bitch about it, when those you mocked first strike back, makes you look a little silly.
Oh, and the fine folks at MVictors had a lovely new idea for your countdown clock...
