Maybe it was because MI hobbled to an 8-4 record.
Dantonio, who is 8-3 against MI, on Sunday responded to the Spartans' (9-3) drawing the Holiday Bowl, while MI (8-4) is headed to the more-prestigious, New Year's Day Outback Bowl. "Congrats on turning around a 3-9 team, plagued with off field issues. I'll just continue to focus on beating MI and let things sort out". "Good for BIG to have him back".
MI football coach Jim Harbaugh took to Twitter Monday to respond to Mark Dantonio's comments during the bowl selection process. "The records are what they are".
Dantonio's team has beaten Harbaugh's team twice in their three meetings since Harbaugh came to Ann Arbor, including a 14-10 win at Michigan Stadium this October.
"Washington State is excited to be invited to the San Diego County Credit Union Holiday Bowl", said WSU Interim Director of Athletics John Johnson.
After an uncharacteristically quiet stretch on social media this fall, Harbaugh was asked weeks ago if he changed his tact at all in his third year as Michigan's coach.
"We really look forward to welcoming thousands and thousands of football fans to our great city in just a couple of weeks", said bowl Executive Director Mark Neville. Ohio State was left out of the four-team College Football Playoff, setting off a ripple effect with the Big Ten's bowl lineup that saw three teams line the New Year's Six bowl games.
MSU players took to Twitter Sunday afternoon to air their frustration, while Dantonio did his best to deflect it all.
