The Michigan State-Michigan Game: Joy and Disappointment
Arguably one of the most anticipated weeks during the college football season in Michigan. The rivalry tension has been high. For the Wolverines, this game was circled on the calendar. On the other side of the field, MSU coach Mel Tucker, coming in at 2-0 against Jim Harbaugh, heading into the Big House for a night game. Michigan were supposed to walk away in full celebration after their 29-7 win over Michigan State. Instead, here we are trying to piece together whether there will be criminal charges facing a handful of Michigan State players.
Lost Art of Sportsmanship
No matter what the final score is, there has always been an understanding of respect for your opponents. I’m disappointed more than anything, not because MSU lost. I’m disappointed because Michigan and their fans deserve to listen, read and watch every analyst praise their performance on Saturday night. Unfortunately, poor composure, decision-making and an overall lack of discipline led to what looked to be outright assault.
What an awful ending in what was supposed to be night of celebration.
