|This was what Bubba drove in EL, last time MSU won the title!|
The Lions were actually good. The NFL used to have a "Runners Up" bowl, where the second place team in each division played - the Lions won two out of three appearances. They had last won the title in 1957.
Michigan "Bump Elliot" football sucked, but Ohio "Woody Hayes" State, and Illinois were good.
Aaahhh... the history...
Fast forward, 50 years, to today.
On the gridiron, MSU is reliving its ancient history of hard-nosed defense and grinding offense, with a shot at winning IT ALL. Connor Cook is throwing laser-beam passes for the Spartans, the #5 team in the nation which just destroyed Pennsylvania State University, 55-16, to advance to a 11-1 record on the season. Hell, the Spartan offense just scored last week on a 9-yd TD run off right tackle by its center, Jack Allen. Michigan State are 3-point favorites over the University of Iowa to advance to the national title playoff. My, how times change... but yet remain the same...
One thing has not changed in 50+ years. It's the chip on the shoulder. Michigan State must continue to prove to the masses we belong - more than Bump Elliott, Woody, or Jesus Harbaugh. The ES will be in Indy, and would enjoy your company. 50 years in waiting. Victory is at hand.
