Spartan Nation was THE FIRST to report back on August 24 that Tom Izzo and Mark Dantonio would be cleared of ANY wrongdoing by the NCAA, per sources at the NCAA. The NCAA confirmed our report last week and you can READ THAT HERE. Now Tom Izzo has issued this statement. The media has an OBLIGATION, to tell the truth. It is a moral obligation, and I hope many of you remember that when choosing what media you will consume, considering MANY wrote, spoke and reported as if MSU, Dantonio, Izzo and Michigan State were guilty until proven innocent.

Michigan State head football coach Mark Dantonio:

“I have never wavered in my belief that we have done things the right way here at Michigan State. As I have stated earlier, we’ve always tackled our problems head on and have dealt with issues. We welcome the findings by the thorough NCAA investigation that our program has acted properly with all policies and procedures.”
