11/3/2001- MSU Cheats their Way
to Victory- AGAIN!
The Spartans have long
been known to do anything in order to beat the Wolverines. Few
can forget the mugging of Michigan WR
Desmond Howard in 1990 as time ran out. Well, the Spartans were
at it again in the 2001 game at East Lansing.
The willingness of the
Spartans to cheat coupled with cowardly Big Ten referees have allowed
Spartans to gain another tainted victory.
Most of us are aware that time
ran out as Spartans lined up in an attempt to spike the ball and get
one more play in the game. The Spartan timekeeper conveniently
stopped the clock with a second left in the game. Time is
supposed to be kept on the field but gutless Big Ten referees refused
to do their job and allowed the Spartans to line up for a final play.
The latest Spartan hero?
#77 OT Steve Stewart. After the snap of the ball Wolverine #13
Larry Stevens puts a move on Stewart and appeared to be ready to dump
MSU QB Jeff Smoker for a game ending sack.
Stewart had other ideas
though. He grabbed a hold of Stevens' jersey, arm, and anything
else he could get a hold of to prevent him from making the game
You had to be wondering
how MSU QB Jeff Smoker had so much time to throw right? Well,
the answer is plain to see on the video clip.
