Football freep.com —  It's fascinating to listen to the Spartans talk. Every so often, without fail, they mention "Coach D" in passing. They bring up something he has taught them. Something he has engrained in them. Dantonio has built a powerful, well-oiled machine at Michigan State. It is a team fashioned in his own likeness. Intense. Focused. Hardworking. Never satisfied. And forever feeling slighted. The Spartans are ranked No. 8 in the country, but they still act and talk as though they are the underdogs.

But prior to that, we didn't run the ball with any consistency."

"It didn't go good in the film room," Narduzzi said.
