Tom Izzo Takes Dan Dakich To Church
Michigan State won a critical game against Ohio State beating them 74-66. After the game, Spartans coach Tom Izzo addressed some of the things said by ESPN’s broadcaster Dan Dakich who seems to have gotten under the skin of the Michigan State faithful. The facts were tweeted with him back and forth then they chanted some things at him leading to Dakich’s comments about ‘They couldn’t get into Michigan.’ Izzo had some words about the whole thing.
Even though I’m a Dakich fan every now and again (He’s the classic broadcaster where sometimes, I really think he’s smart and on to something then other times he’s way off-base), this is wonderful. You usually don’t hear a coach so candid like Izzo was right there. He’s a fiery guy, but I can’t remember a time where he used his post-game presser as a vehicle to call out someone in the media. This is also due to the fact Izzo is such a media-friendly guy.
But you know who loves this the most? Dakich. He gets all of the attention off of this and it’s a wonderful thing for him for the remainder of the season unless ESPN makes him apologize which they shouldn’t do and let’s hope there is a little bit of thick skin. It should be fun, and I understand Izzo getting upset, and it’s damn entertaining.
