MSU, You've Been Punk'd!

Last week, three U-M students pulled off one of the greatest collegiate practical jokes since the Deltas stole Niedermeyer's horse.

Saturday, during the M/MSU game in East Lansing, the Michigan students posed as Big 10 interns, snuck into the Breslin Center and handed out cards to members of the "Izzone." The unsuspecting Spartan students thought the cards were going to spell out "Go State" but instead they spelled out "Go Blue." Sort of. We say sort of because the students didn't hold up the cards as long as needed and the actual placards were small (and thus hard to read) as the Michigan students pulling off the prank could only afford 10x14 cards.

Allow me to speak for all of us here at the M Zone and say, "Bravo, gentlemen. Bravo!" You have done the school and collegiate pranksters proud.

Who's running security at the Breslin Center, Michael "Brownie" Brown? First, they let in these ingenious kids in to punk the Izzone (no relation), and then they let a drunk fan WALK ON THE COURT during warmups, leading to an incident with Amadou Ba. And we thought the guy running the clock in East Lansing was incompetent.

Easy there, Benny. I'd say the Sparty security chief is doing a 'heckuva job'.

This just in: Ray Naggin has said that, following this stunt with the white placards, he wants to turn the Breslin Center into a "chocolate stadium."

More news as it becomes available.

I heard Gary Coleman is running security

It would have been funnier if the cards read:
"one time I ate my neighbor's shit"

Uh...(scratching my head)...ok.
