Jim Harbaugh blames ‘bush league’ Mark Dantonio for pregame scuffle

Jim Harbaugh headset

It’s safe to say that the pregame incident between Michigan and Michigan State was not forgotten by the Michigan side after their 21-7 win over the Spartans.

The two teams scuffled before the game as Michigan players clashed with Michigan State’s pregame “Spartan walk.” Michigan alleged that the Spartans came out ten minutes late to interfere with Michigan’s warmups, and he took full aim at the Spartans and coach Mark Dantonio after the game, calling their actions “bush league” and saying that his respect for them had dropped.

Dantonio was asked to respond in his own postgame press conference, and he wasn’t buying Harbaugh’s line of attack at all.

These are two coaches that have never particularly been fond of each other heading two teams that feel the same way. It’s even more true when this was only Michigan’s third win in the last 11 against the Spartans after historically dominating the rivalry. Michigan clearly wanted to make a statement, were motivated to do so, and were happy to say so after their two-touchdown victory.
