Did Mark Dantonio Guarantee Victory?

Over the years, Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio has proved to be a master motivator when it comes to putting a chip on his team's shoulder. But did he mean to do the same thing for Ohio State this morning when appearing on ESPN?

Before Michigan State rivalry win two weeks ago at home vs. Michigan, the Spartans were fired up when Michigan players drove a stake into the Spartan Stadium ground just before kickoff.

Not that MSU needed any more motivation before a rivalry contest the team has started to dominate in recent years, but Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio made sure his team noticed what happened on the way to the 35-11 win. He even used it as rationalization to put a late exclamation mark on the proceedings as the Spartans left the first-team offense in to score a touchdown in the final minute.

To Ohio State tight ends coach Tim Hinton, a former Dantonio assistant at Cincinnati, it was a classic Mark Dantonio moment.

"I do know Mark very well," Hinton said. "The thing that's really interesting about Mark and that group, they have a unique way of saying, 'OK, I'm going to put the chip on my shoulder somewhat. There's going to be something that comes out of this press conference, I'm going to guarantee you they're going to put on a bulletin board somehow some way the world's against them.

"That's been their MO since the day I've known him, and they're going to do a great job of playing that out."

Ironically, then, Dantonio -- a coach so intense and staid that he once denied a player a start because he didn't wear a tie to a team function -- might have provided some motivation this morning to Ohio State on ESPN's "First Take" when he was goaded into something close to a guarantee that Michigan State would win.

It was harmless, really, playing along to both the ESPN anchor and the crowd in East Lansing on a show that isn't exactly known as "Meet the Press" as far as the seriousness of the discourse. And of course Dantonio thinks his team is going to win, much like Urban Meyer likely believes the same.

But at least one Buckeye already took notice.

And with the game already meaning just about everything to each team -- the winner will stay alive in the national and Big Ten races, the loser likely out -- it's not like the Buckeyes needed any sort of extra motivation. But in 2008, OSU didn't need it either as the No. 12 Buckeyes went to East Lansing to face the No. 20 Spartans, but it happened anyway before a 45-7 OSU win.

That's the funny thing about bulletin-board material. It's a motivating factor when you win and nothing is you lose. Meyer's famous wall of disrespect -- some of which he says was fabricated, perhaps jokingly -- that inspired his Florida team to a national title game upset of Ohio State in 2006 is now the stuff of legend.

So we'll see what happens Saturday when the ball is kicked in the air. It could be something or it could be nothing.
