The chip on the collective shoulder of the Michigan State football program and its fans continues to grow.

National media outlets just can't seem to ever get coach Mark Dantonio's name correct. He is often times confused with NBA coach Mike D'Antoni.

The "disrespect" continued on Saturday, as the Spartans prepared for a matchup with the Wisconsin Badgers. Michigan State's coach was referred to as "Mike Dantonio" on the ESPN bottom line scroll before the game.

Last fall, Dantonio was even called the MSU Womens Vollyball coach on one news broadcast.
