From today's Uni Watch post...
… Not sure what going on here, but this is a Michagan player. Looks like they taped up his helmet to look like it’s from Michigan State. Anyone know more? (From Tony Bacioccoz,.) …
School of Packaging had something to do with this...
Yes, I have an advanced degree in cardboard effeciency, would you like to supersize your order?
One of the GA's must have a special tape talent. I could use that guy on Christmas eve.
That poor scout team...
What the heck did they do to deserve that?!? Ouch!
It better be a one game, one year deal. Like, you either have to do that for the MSU or OSU practices one year, and then never again. Seriously, I'd be upset.
It's the only thing that makes sense
I understand that player lost 10 IQ points in a single practice. Studies will be required to see if wearing a Block-M hat or winged helmet reverses the effect.
Put the campus security on full alert. These scout team sparty impersonators might take it to literally and storm the dorms later on looking to re-enact the jock/frat beatdown of a couple years ago.
"Just another game on the schedule."
Those Michigan players are going to be psychologically scarred for life.
He is asking if he can borrow Devin Funchess for a week.
He was overheard asking about borrowing Tacopants.
So if any of the guys in those helmets got concussions, did they go right back into practice?
Looks like Vincent Van Gogh painted those helmets.

You get internet connection in your box?
And as Brian noted yesterday, we can apparently afford expensive "timepieces."
I bet that guy is the best face-masker on the scout team...
Yep. Green field turf and some green leaves. Nothing else to see here...
Seeing a Spartan helmet and a misspelling of "Michigan" - least surprising thing ever.
Is that Justice Hayes wearing a Sparty helmet in the background?
Hayes is five, and that looks like a double digit number.
Guessing it's Drake Johnson.
Joe Reynolds 85 and Jeremy Clark is 34
I took me a while, but finally saw the MSU player laying in the weeds.

Scout team probly. Why is this a big deal?
Its a huge deal. Those poor kids were told "our helmets have wings" when they were recruited. Now they only have Sparties. Sounds like a breach of contract to me . . .
If you want game tape from Urban Meyer, you're going to have to be a little more specific.
How in the hell do you pronounce that guy's last name?
That some scout members were seen twisting face masks in the piles and throwing punches
C) Monkey Rodeo
Theyve been doing this for years. It's still ugly as hell.
Player in the background with a green Sparty like helmet as well. Looks like the training staff will be using a lot of Goo Be Gone this weekend to restore the helmets.
I'm glad there is someone else who was wondering the state of those helmets after so much green duct tape.
What does the best helmet on the market sell for, $350? I can imagine they could just buy new ones if they wanted to with the amount of money this program makes.
I'm sure Hoke will be thrilled when he has to answer a question about this at his next presser because somebody Instagram'd a picture of it.
The scout team has been masking their helmets and jerseys for a long time. Green jerseys are handed out for State week, Red for Ohio. Using trainers tape and a marker were the preferred methods back in the day. That picture above shows a much more profressional-looking deal. Hoke means business, obvioiusly.
I love it builds the intensity for a rivalry week!!! Feel bad for the scout team though but probably feels good to tear the tape off after practice
The duct tape state helmet still looks better than the squirrel making dirty dirty love to the blue helmets Notre Dame wore a few weeks ago.
Can't start my own thread but thought I would dump this here for everyone's enjoyment (or at least those who haven't seen it yet)
Apparently Kork isn't a huge fan of his teammates success! Anyone surprised?
Where's the threat?
Makes begging easier.
I guess my only question would be this - to add to the realism, did we also simulate the MSU rushing game by running to the perimeter and then falling down out of bounds?
But at least once during practice, one of the D must bend over and stand still while a scout team RB hurdles him, and then the D is made to listen to terrible announcers rave like that leap was the second coming of jesus.
Looks like an old school Spartan helmet before they were Nikefied.
It's all about motivation to get better. Forcier had his wings removed to encourage him to get his act together. Can't get much more effective than making them wear a fake Sparty helmet.
This must make them play with unnecessary roughness.
It's a spy!!!!
If it works for them it works for me.
