Michigan State’s Mark Dantonio and Washington State’s Mike Leach conducted a dual interview with KUSI’s Brandon Stone. It was rather uneventful until Stone tried to squeeze in a question about Jim Harbaugh’s khakis. Then things turned exceptionally painful.
Dantonio, fresh off getting pulled into a Twitter beef with the Michigan man the last time he mentioned the Wolverines, wanted no part of the fun. Nevertheless, the reporter persisted, at one point asking if Leach was wearing khakis to intimidate Dantonio, who has won 8 of 10 against Michigan and is 2-1 against Harbaugh.
Don’t let the pained expression fool you. This is exactly what the Spartans coach wants. Michigan State needs disrespect — perceived or otherwise — like oxygen. The addiction is real.
