Video: Is Michigan rivalry personal to Mark Dantonio?

Toussaint said, “We labeled them as a little brother,” and that the rivalry is “personal.” Read more on Toussaint’s comments. On Wednesday night’s #BTNLive, Dave Revsine mentioned Toussaint’s words to Mark Dantonio and asked if he took the rivalry personal. Watch the full interview above and his classic response below.

Dennard, on Michigan rivalry: 'It means everything'

When you think of Michigan State, you think defense. And, there is no better player on the Spartan “D” than cornerback Darqueze Dennard. The 5-11, 197-pound senior from Dry Branch, Ga., is in his third season as a starter and has 136 tackles and 25 passes defended (eight interceptions, 17 pass break-ups) in 37 career games, including 33 starts (22 consecutive). Dennard is the ultimate playmaker on the edge of a defense that ranks No. 1 overall in the nation (215.5 ypg). The unit has yielded just five touchdowns in eight games, allowing an average of 12.2 points. Dennard may

Carollo assesses targeting penalty after nine weeks

The early returns are in, and the new penalty for targeting is having an impact. According to Big Ten officials coordinator Bill Carollo, there have been 54 targeting calls in 534 FBS games in 2013. Fifteen were subsequently overturned upon replay review, putting the number of disqualifications through 534 games and nine weeks of action at 39. Last year in the Big Ten, targeting was flagged six times, according to Carollo. This year, it has been flagged twice: Nebraska’s Stanley Jean-Baptiste at Purdue on Oct. 12 and Ohio State’s Bradley Roby vs. Iowa on Oct. 19. Watch Jean-Baptiste’s hit (Roby’s
