Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo was pretty upset that fans in the “Izzone” chanted mean things to Dan Dakich during last night’s win over Ohio State.
But then someone on Izzo’s staff showed him why the Spartan student section was attacking Dakich, and he took a moment in his postgame press conference to rip Dakich himself.
“Danny owes our fans and our students an apology,” Izzo said of Dakich, once he learned Dakich said Michigan State students are too dumb to get into Michigan.
“If I would have known that before the game, I would have embarrassed myself almost as much as he embarrassed himself, and I would have led the chants,” Izzo said. “Calling us whiners and that is kind of unprofessional. But saying our students couldn’t get in there? And he’s doing games for Michigan when his son’s there? That is a disappointment and that is ridiculous.”
