Mark Dantonio goes ‘next question’ on reporters in brief press conference (Video)
Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio must have been pretty dissatisfied after his team’s 23-7 win over Eastern Michigan on Saturday, because he gave mostly terse answers to the media in his postgame news conference.
The entire press conference last about two and a half minutes. It featured an opening statement from Dantonio, and then one semi-involved response to a question. After that, it was all downhill. Not one of his answers was more than a sentence. You can watch the press conference below:
As you can see, Dantonio kept the one-sided session brief by saying “next question” seven times. He hardly entertained reporters’ inquiries. It’s easy to see why he was upset.
Michigan State is 3-1 after losing to Notre Dame last week, and they struggled to beat Eastern Michigan. They were down 7-3 at halftime, and they didn’t take the lead until the final two minutes of the third quarter. The team’s problems with catching the ball continued as they had six dropped passes, and things don’t get any easier against Ohio State next weekend.
Dantonio better chill out otherwise he’s liable to get another heart attack.
Helmet smack to Game On!
