Should USF head football coach Skip Holtz contact Michigan State's Mark Dantonio for advice on how to get out of a penalty funk.
In its last two games (both losses), USF committed 19 penalties for 198 yards. The worst came Saturday when the Bulls were flagged 10 times for 109 yards in a heartbreaking 37-34 loss to Cincinnati.
Michigan State had similar penalty problems, but in the Spartans 37-31 victory over Wisconsin Saturday night they were perfect in the discipline department and did not receive one penalty, which is rare as a Florida snowfall.
The previous week Michigan State was whistled 13 times for penalties totaling 124 yards against Michigan and even had a player, William Gholston, suspended for punching a player.
