Former Wolverine Brandon Peters: Spartans “got what they deserved” with loss

Brandon Peters knows all about how Michigan State Spartans fans feel about Michigan Wolverines and their players, and he wasn’t spared their wrath despite no longer wearing the maize and blue.

The fourth-year former Michigan quarterback joined Illinois as a graduate transfer this spring, and he was hearing it from the crowd at Spartan Stadium all night as Michigan State was cruising to what appeared to be an easy win over the Illini.

“The whole game,” Peters said Saturday night. “I had people behind me calling me a Michigan reject.”

The Spartans held a 25 point lead in the game’s first half before a furious comeback by Illinois shocked the home crowd and sent Michigan State to their fourth straight loss. The Fighting Illini left East Lansing 37-34 winners, and Peters had a big hand in the victory.

His late touchdown pass to Daniel Barker completed the largest comeback in Illinois history. And not surprisingly, Peters said that he didn’t hear any chirps from the stands as he left the field.

“They got what they deserved,” Peters said, smiling.
