Mark Dantonio is the man

It's every media member's nightmare to have a question turned down or to be called out by a coach on national television—but in this specific case, it's freaking hilarious. Blog Photo - Michigan State football: Mark Dantonio rejects reporter's question

Michigan State coach Mark Dantonio was asked about his clock management following the offense's inability to score leading into the half against Northwestern.

His response was classic: "Ask me a different question."

The Spartans went on to win 30-6, so the before-half ineffectiveness proved to be no matter. Dantonio later apologized (in his own subliminal way), telling WJR Radio that he was just frustrated.

"Well I guess I didn't handle it quite right, but you know I was frustrated as well," he said. "Just things don't go always as planned. The wind out there is very cold. The wind was whipping about 20 to 25 miles an hour against us, but still, the third-and-one getting the right people on the field or not, substituting, those type of things, that was just frustrating.

"So I really just sort of stalled, I think. When I got asked the question, I didn't really know what to say. I really just didn't know what to say, and so I guess that came out. So, my bad."

Just for kicks, here's New England Patriots' head coach Bill Belichick in a more painful, extensive interview.
