It's a little hard to imagine Michigan State's Mark Dantonio -- a man who comes across as, let's say, "dour" even in the best of times -- jumping up and down in unbridled joy along with his delighted players in a postgame locker room celebration.
But crushing archrivals Michigan 29-6 to seize control of the Legends Division race appears to have done the trick nonetheless. Via the Instagram account of Johnny Dantonio, who writes that, yes, that's "Uncle Mark" in the middle of the postgame melee:
Dantonio has always publicly named the in-state rivalry with the Wolverines the Spartans' biggest. Looks like he doesn't feel any differently behind closed doors, either.
