Michigan State Runs Up Score After Wolverines Plant Stake In Spartan Stadium Turf

UPDATE: Brady Hoke apologizes to MSU for stake-driving incident


Ah, rivalries.

Before kickoff of Michigan State’s 35-11 win over Michigan on Saturday, the Wolverines’ Joe Bolden planted a stake into the middle of the field at Spartan Stadium. (See it here)

That didn’t sit well with MSU players and coaches. Connor Cook mentioned the “disrespect” after the game, and MSU head coach Mark Dantonio also had some strong words.

“(Michigan) coming out like they’re all that…Them putting a spear in the field before the game is not a product of their team but their program,” Dantonio said after the game, adding that the Spartans chose to punch in a touchdown with just seconds remaining when they could have simply run the clock out.

Michigan Coach Brady Hoke said after the game he was somewhat aware of the incident but offered little specifics.

You can hear Dantonio’s comments, as well as Cook’s and Hoke’s, and plenty more in the postgame videos below.
