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.
