Things might get a little interesting this Saturday in Mackey Arena, as the Michigan State Spartans take on the Purdue Boilermakers.
And it has nothing to do with the game on the court, but the drama that will be surrounding it.
Saturday's ESPN crew for #Purdue-Michigan State.

ESPN’s Dan Dakich will be part of the broadcasting crew covering the game — the same Dan Dakich who Michigan State coach Tom Izzo went after for taking shots at Michigan State students on Twitter.

During the Spartans’ 74-66 win over Ohio State Tuesday night, the Spartans student section periodically chanted “We hate Dakich.” Izzo didn’t realize what the chants were in reference to until after the game, when he called the color commentator out for his comments (which have been deleted).
