Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio doesn’t seem the least bit worried about being a double-digit underdog to Ohio State this Saturday.

“I don’t worry about that…I didn’t know the spread, but there you go. We’ll just have to roll the dice,” Dantonio responded when asked about being a 16-point underdog to Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes.

I love this reaction from Dantonio. It’s a classic football guy move. Of course he doesn’t have time to worry about what the spread is or if Ohio State is favored. That’s the business of the degenerates and fringe class members like myself. Leave gambling to those of us with nothing better to do.

Winning coaches spend their times game planning. Chumps spend their times worried about outside noise, such as spreads. I figured Ohio State was going to win this game, but all of a sudden I might have to shift some money towards MSU on the moneyline.
