Tom Izzo rips Dan Dakich (video)

New, 42 comments

Tom Izzo should have been enjoying the Spartans’ 74-66 win over Ohio State on Tuesday, but instead, he was upset with the latest stupidity from Dan Dakich.

The much-criticized ESPN analyst took some uncalled for jabs at Michigan State with a recent string of tweets, including one about Spartans students who weren’t smart enough to attend Michigan.

After Tuesday’s win over the Buckeyes, Izzo made sure to call out Dakich during the postgame presser, and it’s gold:

During Ohio State free throws, Spartans fans chanted, "We hate Dakich!" instead of trying to distract Buckeyes shooters. That’s what got Izzo’s attention about Dakich’s tweets, which have since been deleted.

“I was kind of getting upset at the chants of ‘Dakich.’ Until I got into the locker room and somebody read me his tweets," Izzo said after the game. "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.”
