Shots Fired! Michigan fan posts video to explain to MSU fans why they are headed to Holiday Bowl


Neither Michigan nor Michigan State will be playing in the College Football Playoff this season. To be honest, neither team even sniffed the CFP this season as the Wolverines finished the regular season 8-4 and the Spartans rebounded from a 3-9 season a year ago to finish 9-3 in 2017.

But that does not mean the fans of Michigan and Michigan State will have to wait for unitil the 2018 season to watch their program play again.

On Sunday, the college football bowl schedule was released and unranked Michigan will be headed to the Outback Bowl on Jan. 1 to square off against the unranked South Carolina Gamecocks while No. 18 Michigan State will play in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28 against the No. 21 Washington State Cougars.

Following the announcement of the bowl matchups, many Michigan State faithful hopped on Twitter to share their displeasure in their bowl destination.

Let’s start with 97.1 The Ticket’s Pat Caputo, who everyone knows is a Spartan slappy, even though he denies it.

Oh, and this salty MSU fan actually took the time to tweet out this winner.

Even Spartans head coach Mark Dantonio even seems a bit peeved, even though he claims to be happy with the Holiday Bowl berth.

This guy wants a damn explanation as to why Michigan State is playing in the Holiday Bowl on Dec. 28 and Michigan gets another New Year’s Day bowl. (Notice, he is pissed because he included “WTF” at the end of his tweet, always a sign of anger)

Well, you wanted an explanation, here ya go, courtesy of @JDue51 on Twitter.

Now, we know that video is a bit misleading because the weather was AWFUL that day at Spartan Stadium but there is some truth to @JDue51’s idea.

Michigan has always been a bigger draw than Michigan State and will likely always be a bigger draw than Michigan State when it comes to attendance and viewers on television. Therefore, it should never come as a surprise when the Wolverines get a New Year’s Day bowl over the Spartans.

That being said, let’s be honest, both the Holiday Bowl and the Outback Bowl are completely meaningless bowl games and Spartans fans should be happy they have bragging rights for the next year over Michigan, regardless of which bowl each team plays in.

Oh, one more thing…

San Diego is MUCH nicer than Tampa, anyways. Just saying.
