special helmets for Spartans

A slow week on the 'blog is just beginning so this might be post-worthy:

I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that, if Hoke reels off four straight wins (yes, please) against MSU, there won't be any helmet gifts specific to that accomplishment.

We're not making fun of them for winning four in a row, or for accomplishing anything.  If it was just a matter of them getting to keep their uniforms, much like Brandon found out our players could for UTL, it would hardly be worth a mention. But the fact that multiple times they tied it into "beating Michigan", and showing little brother level of obsessiveness is what we're making fun of.  Our players didn't say "boy, I'd like to keep those bumblebee uniforms, because they signify beating ND 3 years in a row."  We weren't getting helmets printed up with 6-0 vs. MSU, or 2-10-1 vs. OSU.   When we win, it's all about us. When MSU wins, it's...all about us.  I'll NEVER respect that. So I'll never feel the need to give them "credit" for that.

""You're going to put it up in a case, let your kids look at it. It's a once-in-a-lifetime thing for MSU. It's exciting to be a part of that, especially the senior class, beating (Michigan) for the fourth time."

 

Yep, once in a lifetime deal....

AIN'T Happening Again.

Did they get approval of the NCAA for this? Didn't DB get approval for our guys to keep the UTL jerseys?  I saw nothing in that article about NCAA approval for the helmets, jerseys or gloves.

With that said, Terrelle Pryor is sitting back laughing and thinking to himself "Psh, I just take my helmets and equipment when I want.  Most of the time I want a tat, because everyone steals and wants tats"

They should give them some of that trash that was floating around during the game, that'd be a great keepsake. Instead of a helmet they need to give all their players some community service.
