If you have any doubts of Mark Dantonio being Jim Tressel's former apprentice, look no further than their punishments for DUIs.

Michigan State wide receiver Macgarrett Kings Jr. was arrested on April 6th for suspicion of DUI. That suspicion, however, was soon supplanted by proof: Kings blew more than .17, more than twice the legal limit.

On July 7th, Kings Jr. plead guilty and received 13 months probation and a $750 fine.

His punishment from Michigan State? Missing spring camp.

Kings Jr. has since been reinstated to the team. He won't miss any games, however, and Mark Dantonio recently explained why (emphasis mine):

"He's a playmaker and he's doing what he needs to do,'' Danntonio said, asked for an update on how Kings was doing. "He's in the mix (at receiver) and he's done the right things.''

And that's how the sausage gets made in elite college football, folks.
