Morning Playbook – Mark Dantonio doesn’t like Spartans mouthing off on Twitter

As Michigan was being blown away by Alabama Saturday night some of Michigan's rivals from East Lansing were mouthing off on Twitter.Michigan State linebacker Denicos Allen said Spartans back-up quarterback Tommy Vento is better than Denard Robinson. Redshirt freshman safety Kyle Artinian bluntly tweeted "Denard is soooo bad!" and freshman linebacker Jamal Lyles suggested he could play under center at Michigan.

Of course, this was a classic example of young kids not thinking before they tweet, and should serve as an example of how all college football players (and athletes in general) should approach social networking outlets like Twitter. The Robinson tweets have since been deleted but the damage had already been done. Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio was not happy about the incidents.

"Our guys need to keep their mouths shut," Dantonio said. "That blunt enough? … Especially the ones not even playing."

Dantonio also mentioned that Michigan State was embarrassed by Alabama not so long ago, in the 2011 Capital One Bowl. As if we needed another reason to love and respect Dantonio…
