Prior to Saturday’s matchup between the Michigan State Spartans and Michigan Wolverines, there was a bit of extracurricular activity at Spartan Stadium.

As you have probably seen by now, some Spartans players got into a little shouting match and scuffle with some Wolverines’ players, including Devin Bush Jr., near midfield. Reports are that some MSU players “clotheslined” a couple of Michigan players and even ripped the earphones from on player’s head.

Following the conclusion of the game, Wolverines’ head coach Jim Harbaugh was asked about what happened before the game. Harbaugh was clearly not happy at all about what when down, calling it “bush league” and accusing Spartans’ head coach Mark Dantonio of “smiling” while it was all going down.

When Dantonio was asked about Harbaugh’s accusations of him smiling, he was clearly upset and called the comments, “BS.”

Well, leave it to the Twittersphere to find evidence on just about anything.

In the video below, Dantonio appears to be smiling as he walks about five yards behind his team, though he may just be squinting because of the Sun.

Take a look at the video below. Is Dantonio smiling or is he just squinting because of the Sun? You be the judge.


GAME ON! Jim Harbaugh calls out Mark Dantonio for ‘bush league’ move, Dantonio fires back

On Saturday, the Michigan Wolverines opened up a can of whoop ass on the Michigan State Spartans. When all was said and done, Michigan outgained Michigan State 395 yards to just 94 as they rolled to a 21-7 win in East Lansing.

There were plenty of fireworks during the game, but some of the biggest came before kickoff as the Spartans joined arms to walk across the field. According to reports, they were 10 minutes late and some of the Michigan players, including Devin Bush Jr., were already on the field.

As the Michigan State players approached midfield, the reportedly “clotheslines” a couple of Wolverines’ players and even ripped the earphones out of one player’s ears.


After the Spartans players finally finished walking by, Devin Bush Jr. took it upon himself to deface the Michigan State logo with his cleats.


Following the game, Wolverines head coach Jim Harbaugh talked about what happened during the pregame and while doing so, he called out Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio for smiling while it was going on.
