Michigan State’s Coach Mark Dantonio had a mild heart attack, just an hour or so after their game with Notre Dame ended. But don’t worry Rock Heads, he is expected to make a full recovery.
So how did the hospitalizing suspense end? With one of the most daring plays that this caveman has seen in a while. Michigan State lined up for a 46 yard field goal that would have tied up the scores and sent the game into a second over time. But they went all or nothing with the fake as Aaron Bates threw a pass to Charlie Gantt for a game winning touchdown and leaving the final score at 34-31.
It reminded me of the time Larry Mize chipped in from 35 yards out on the second hole of a sudden death playoff to win the 1987 Masters. Can you think of another time a golfer went all out to pull a win out of their trousers?
