The game was over.

Except, well, it wasn’t over at all. Illinois stormed back to score 27 points in the final 15 minutes to shock the Spartans and win 37-34.

After the game, Spartans coach Mark Dantonio had to speak with the media. Did he want to?

Probably not.

At one point, Dantonio was asked about what he would tell the fans, students and alums about the future. His response was intriguing, to say the least:

What does this mean exactly? Does Dantonio know that his days are just about over at Michigan State? Will he get fired? Will he be forced to leave?

Is Dantonio just upset after losing a game the way his team did? It could be any of that. But, one thing is for sure: Dantonio is frustrated.

He did talk more about the officiating than he did about Michigan State’s future:

Again, Dantonio is upset — as he should be. Is he so upset that he wants to be done at the end of the year? Those rumors will undoubtedly continue in the weeks ahead.
