Michigan State football coach Mark Dantonio says he expects to be at this weekend's game at Michigan as he recovers from a mild heart attack and subsequent blood clot in his leg.
Dantonio said during a news conference today that he wasn't about to miss this rivalry game, and indicated he'll probably be in a box above the field Saturday. That was his plan last weekend against Wisconsin, but he was hospitalized Thursday because of the blood clot.
Dantonio has missed No. 17 Michigan State's last two games following his Sept. 19 heart attack.
A person involved with the process says the Detroit Pistons have decided to sell the team to Mike Ilitch.
The person spoke to The Associated Press this morning on the condition of anonymity because of a confidentiality agreement. The person says both sides are negotiating financial terms of the deal.
Ilitch, the Little Caesars pizza mogul, also owns the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Red Wings. He said in August that he wanted to buy the Pistons in part to make sure another buyer doesn't move the NBA franchise out of town.
LANSING, MI – A new report shows Michigan is following a national trend of more cesarean-section childbirths. Michigan is slightly above the national average in percentage of C-sections, which is about one in three childbirths.
But the report from the Center for Healthcare Research and Transformation also shows Michigan is doing better than most states in successfully treating heart disease without surgery.
