Best Moments in the Rivalry: Desmond Howard’s Drop
It was the day I switched sides officially.
As a kid, I grew up a Wolverine fan. It was purely out of spite. My dad was a HUGE MSU guy and graduate so everyone in our house was a Spartan fan. I wanted to be different. I made my parents buy me Michigan stuff and was a fan up until this game. Michigan was #1 headed in to the game and it was called "Number One Versus No One."
The way MSU played that day... Hard nosed, tough UNDERDOGS. It appealed to me. Plus, I was exposed to some rabid Wolverines. Fans that were so nasty and so far from the spirit of what the game is supposed to be, I never wore the colors again until I lost a bet.
Now, Desmond Howard clearly dropped that ball. He MAY have been incidentally tripped but the ball hit his hands...
