In the final seconds of Wisconsin’s upset victory over the Michigan State Spartans, television cameras focused in on a disappointed  Michigan State head coach Mark Dantonio.

Then all the sudden, he vanished.

I’ve watched the video more times than I’d like to admit, and the only possible answer is that Dantonio walked to the right behind one of his players.

Michigan State quarterback Tyler O’Connor threw for 224 yards and went 18-38. O’Connor threw three interceptions in the loss to the Wisconsin Badgers at home.

The Spartans suffered their first loss of the season Saturday afternoon. Losing to a Big Ten opponent, while in different divisions, won’t help Michigan State in the polls next week.

Dantonio has been the head coach at Michigan State since 2007 after a short tenure at Cincinnati. He took the Spartans to their first college football playoff game last season, but lost in the semi-final game.

Michigan State will play Indiana on the road next week as they look to rebound from a tough loss to the Badgers.

Hopefully the Spartans offense wont disappear again like their head coach.
