Dantonio World: The Most Lenient Place on Earth

MSU Coach Mark Dantonio doesn't regret reinstating Chris Rucker back on the team the day he got out of jail and two days before the biggest game in Spartyville since LBJ.  And why would he?  It's a special, magical place in East Lansing...



In a related story, former Tosu RB Maurice Clarett said he is looking into the purchase of an alternate reality machine in order to start his career over as a Spartan.

Thank you Yost, thank you Yost for that one!

Truly outstanding.

oh, too funny.
But I have to say that Disney is my happy place. So much so that we will be there on November 27, to help ease the pain.
Please don't ruin it with images of Dantonio.

Did you all hear about the renovations to Spartan stadium that were just approved?

They are going to put barbed wire along the top so the player feel more at home.

Hey GoBlueBob....get your own material. I used that one a while ago...Although I said concertina wire instead of barbed wire....

:)

And to continue along these lines, I heard that Michigan State was going to change their uniforms to a bright orange.

They had a nice piece on Mo Clarrett on sportscenter yesterday. It's a shame he didn't attend MSU he would have been reinstated immediately.

Yost said...

That's hilarious, BAH! In fact, might have to update the post. Thanks!

Mik... I knew I had heard it someplace but it just seemed to fit. I am not above steeling jokes from others.... in fact I do it all the time.

Clarrett needs to borrow the Delorean.....

The only reason Rucker was in jail is because Dantonio forced him to serve his time before allowing him back.

Thats as obvious as the day, yet some people really cant grasp it. Or they refuse to.

Its both bias and stupidity. Since this happened in season, Rich Rod would suspend the player 1 game and smile for the camera. He'd push the case to the offseason and the media would never mention a word.

Dantonio suspends a kid 3 weeks and forces them to serve their debt to society before returning. Very few other Coaches are that strict. Yet the media reports it as "Dantonio pulling players out of jail"
