Harbaugh rips 'bush league' Michigan State after pregame scuffle

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

"And Coach Dantonio was 5 yards behind them smiling".

Shea Patterson threw two touchdown passes and No. 6 Michigan earned a desperately needed 21-7 win over No. 24 Michigan State on Saturday, snapping a streak of 17 consecutive losses to ranked teams on the road. A win over MI would go a long way for this team's confidence as well as Big Ten East hopes.

"Our defense was lights out", Harbaugh said.

In addition to Bush, the Spartans also reportedly messed with a few other Wolverines players.

MI linebacker Devin Bush responded by jogging to the large Spartan helmet logo at midfield and attempting to kick up as much of the painted grass as possible in a 20-second time span.

Michigan State now stands 4-3 on the campaign.

"I just got caught up in the moment with my emotions", Bush said.


At first, the move can just be seen as Bush being overly emotional before a big rivalry game. "I feel like they took a shot at us, and that was just something I acted off my emotions with".

To cap off the victory, the Wolverines celebrated atop the Spartans logo at midfield.

The younger sibling comparison comes from a 2007 game, when MI running back Mike Hart infamously called the Spartans "little brother". Michigan State then won eight of the next 11 games in the annual series.

MI head coach Jim Harbaugh is meeting with the media at Spartan Stadium to discuss the big rivalry win. The visiting team has lost the past four games.

"We knew that they couldn't hang with us", Winovich said.

Michigan defensive end Chase Winovich is the latest Wolverine to revive the "little brother" comments about inter-state rival Michigan State.

Michigan's defense stole the show for the rest of the game.
