MSU's Dantonio Recovering From Heart Attack

Early Sunday morning following Michigan State's thrilling overtime victory over Notre Dame, Spartans' head coach Mark Dantonio suffered a heart attack and underwent an emergency cardiac catheterization procedure. He is expected to make a full recovery. Dantonio will remain hospitalized for several days and will be out indefinitely. Offensive coordinator Don Treadwill has assumed the interim head coach responsibilities in his absence.

Finally, a victory that deserves the appellation "Heart-Stopping!"

I am an MSU grad and after about 5 years of watching Jim Tressel-style conservatism, I nearly fell out of my chair when he called the fake. Hopefully, Coach D makes a full recovery and the Sparties can finally put together a big year using the momentum from one of the ballsiest calls I have ever seen.
