Because he knows they're fucked. He got out at the perfect time for him.Not sure why he'd suddenly step down with new allegations being brought forward. He could have waited a month or two, I'm sure there'd be new allegations that make the headlines. Why were these allegations anything different then the others?
ESPN's article on this states that under Dantonio's tenure there have been at least 16 cases of rape and sexual assault filed against MSU football player. At least 16!! Good lord, how in the world did he ever maintain his job!? The people at Michigan State make Pedo State look run of the mill a-holes in terms of hiring/retaining pure scumbags.
Let's just hope Izzo is the next cheating scumbag forced to leave MSU. With the recent rape accusations against 3 MSU basketball player, that shoe should drop soon as well - if there were any justice in this world.
