The punch wasn't what bugged me - it was the numerous roughing the passer and late hit penalties. Gholston is a punk but Lewan can take care of himself. Taking head shots at a down QB is uncalled for.

Hey guys. As some of you know, I'm a current senior trumpet in the MMB. I'd like to share with you some of my experiences at the game today, as most of you probably don't know just how classless MSU was. We were seated right in front of the MSU Baseball Team that was honored at the game. During the first quarter, some MMB members were complaining of being "spit" on by these people. Eventually, somebody came down and told them "Don't do it anymore, we have cameras on you". This only stopped them briefly. To have random fans doing this is one thing, but the god damn baseball team doing this was as classless as you can get. After the game was over, the MSU players received the Paul Bunyan trophy. Instead of going to, you know, they're fucking student section, they ran the trophy over to US. As the trophy was literally 4 inches from my face, an MSU football player pointed at me, mouthed "fuck you" and flipped me off. This was accompanied by numerous other insults revolving around "4 years" and other nonsense. Also, the MMB was absolutely swallowed up by the trash tornado during postgame. I actually had to peel garbage off of me while playing multiple times. Obviously the wind had a lot to do with this, but is it really that hard to find a trash can? (Insert Michigan State stadium joke here). Absolute classlessness. I would be absolutely ashamed if our team did something like this to opposing fans.

Question request for Monday Press Conference:


Upon reviewing the film how do you feel about some of the hits and penalties during the game?  If so, what are the potential actions and procedures in reporting them?

I saw the team go over to you guys (the band) and saw numerous players flip you off and taunt you. From the 35th row I kind not read their lips but that is terrible. It is one thing to do it to your opponent, but to do it to the band is horendous.

Oh mann... I got kicked in the back, punched in the face, and the police threatened to take ME to jail because  I was creating a disturbance.

And that was their fans, the players played about the same way.  Cheap shots, late hits, a taunting that should have seen a TD come back, it was terrible.

I guess it is summed up by one MSU fan next to me in the student section yesterday:  she was wearing a green and white hat that said "Play Dirty." and that's it.

Look in the mirror.  Last October Lewan was bragging about what a cheap shot artist he is:


Not that Lewan is above landing a cheap shot against his friendly rival.

“I am the cheap shot,” he said. (Lewan)

He smiles. “I’m blatant about it.”


“My job is to piss people off,” he said. (Lewan)

It’s an approach that sometimes invites trouble. Against Iowa two weeks ago, officials flagged Lewan for two false starts and a personal foul - all in the first half - before Rodriguez benched him.

Its cute when its your own.  Not all Michigan men are the model of sportsmanship you delude yourself into thinking.  Looks like Lewan did what he bragged about and Ghoulston took a stupid penalty.
