Mark Dantonio was so ready to go he literally left his pregame interview

"We gotta go!"

Mark Dantonio is always one to wear his emotions on his sleeves.

During a pre-2015 Cotton Bowl Classic interview with ESPN's Heather Cox, he couldn't conceal his desire to kick things off against the Alabama Crimson Tide.

As Cox did her best to get Dantonio to engage and answer a few quick questions about what to expect from the Spartans against former MSU head coach Nick Saban and the Tide, Dantonio rushed through, clearly having his eyes on saying a few final words to his guys.

And can you blame him?

We've all been waiting weeks for what could be a classic.

A new year. The biggest Spartans football game in years. Coach Dantonio put it best: "We gotta go!"
