Found December 08, 2013 on It's Always Sunny in Detroit:
Michigan State head coach topped off the Spartans Big Ten Championship win by joining his players with a post game locker room dance party.  In what has become the post game anthem for this year’s Spartans, Dantonio got down to “Type of Way” by Rich Homie Quan. This isn’t the first, second or third dance party that Michigan State has had.  12 wins.  12 dance parties.  The Spartans will look to bring their anthem to Pasadena on New Year’s Day after Rose Bowl win over Stanford. Who says Mark Dantonio doesn’t have any fun? [btnjourney on Instagram]

Dantonio dancing his way to success with Spartans

VIDEOS: Michigan State locker room, on field celebration

For Michigan State, the party, Sparty party, in on. East Lansing Michigan burned last night. As was predicted. As usually happens with these things. This year’s Michigan State University football slogan in “Chase it.” The 2011 slogan was “P4RB: Prepare for Rose Bowl,” now it’s here. Guess it’s coincidental, and fitting, that “Chase it” concluded in Indy. the tallest...

Michigan State students riot following victory over Ohio State

Michigan State students celebrated their Big Ten Championship and first Rose Bowl trip of their lifetimes in the only way that they knew how.  My burning couches, rioting and partying.  Can’t say I blame them for reacting the way they did to handing Urban Meyer his first loss as head coach of the Buckeyes. Here was the celebration in the locker room from the Spartans following...

Michigan St revels in Rose Bowl bid

For Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis, the Big Ten championship game was a fitting conclusion to a run hardly anyone saw coming. ''Nothing came easy throughout the season, and nothing came easy throughout the game,'' Hollis said. The Spartans won the Big Ten with a 34-24 victory over Ohio State on Saturday night, and now they'll play in the Rose Bowl...

Buckeyes, Spartans Share Ties

When Michigan State takes on Ohio State in the Big Ten title game tonight, former Buckeye assistants Mark Dantonio and Jim Bollman and former OSU player Rob Harley will all be on the Spartans' sideline. Just as Michigan State did in 1998, the Spartans will be attempting to ruin a national championship berth for the Buckeyes, who boast an unblemished 12-0 record.


This is a memo to Michigan State fans, Michigan State University, Michigan State alums and Michigan State students. Y’all need to come together and stop this DUMB “tradition.” Burning things in the street after losing a college basketball game is classless and reflects POORLY on MSU. And this is a Spartan (sort of, I’m an Illini first and foremost) talking. I did my first...

Meyer, Dantonio To Use Title-Game Experience

The Big Ten Championship Game is old hat to Michigan State, which played in (and nearly won) the first-ever contest in 2011. But while today's game is the first conference title game in OSU's nearly 125 years of football, Urban Meyer has plenty of title-game experience up his sleeve, too.
