Michigan State Students Cause Confusion
- Updated: November 17, 2013
Michigan State men’s basketball team needed a little extra help against Columbia, so their students delivered. Now the real question is, why the hell did they need help against Columbia?!
The number 2 team in the nation, Michigan State, once trailed Columbia by as many as seven points in the second half of the game. The Spartan’s fans took matters into their own hands and started to do a “countdown chant” when Columbia had the ball. The only thing is, they purposely mistimed their countdown to make Columbia think they had more time on the shot clock than they actually had.
After causing back to back violations with the chant, Columbia never scored again and Michigan State went on to win the game 62-53. Columbia’s coach had this to say about the Spartan’s fans.
“They’re the best-coached fans I’ve ever seen,” Columbia coach Kyle Smith said. “They duped us. They duped us on the backwards count or whatever. “I think my one guy had a brain freeze because he was right in front of me, and there was like four (seconds) on the clock, and I’m like, ‘Take a look.'”
