Sports Illustrated cover gets Mark Dantonio’s name wrong
The playoff-bound Michigan State Spartans made an appearance on the Sports Illustrated cover, but there was just one problem: they didn’t get coach Mark Dantonio’s name right.
The cover teases a story about “How Mike Dantonio Rebuilt The Spartans.” That’s a rather significant misprint.

Mike Rosenberg, who wrote the story, assured people on Twitter that the cover was being reprinted and the mistake does not occur in the actual story.
@DjShannrock Our fault. We're re-printing. As you might imagine, I don't write or see covers before printing … the story has it correct.

The Spartans have a program that has a huge chip on its shoulder and they thrive on disrespect, real or imagined. This will probably end up on a bulletin board somewhere.
