While some Michigan State Spartans fans might be ready for the season to end regardless of what happens this weekend, MSU’s coach would keep on going if he could:
“I wish we played 18 games, then I could work 17 weeks in a row,” Mark Dantonio says in the above clip posted by 730 WVFN.
Okay, that was a joke. But his next statement wasn’t.
“I’d like to continue to play and try to play ourselves into something, because I don’t think we’re that far away,” he said. “I really don’t. I see good things out there.”
Dantonio, ever the competitor, points out the Spartans are set to play their fourth top-10 opponent this weekend, and repeats that he doesn’t think his team is that far away from success.
“I think you want to keep on competing. I’m quite sure a lot of our players would not want the season to end.”
