Seniors should be ashamed

Observer Viewpoint | Wednesday, September 21, 2005

A win would have cured all, and after three days to recover mentally, it’s time to address the feeling of sickness I had as I entered the stadium to see the Senior and some of the Junior student section wearing green T-shirts. Embarrassing!

None of the current students know another Shirt color than green, but in fact two years ago was the first time we wore green when MSU was at home. Previously The Shirt color changed from various shades of Blue and Green, depending on the alternating home games of Michigan and MSU. But for some reason, green became associate with the Ty era (remember the cursed green jerseys against BC?).

The Ty era is over and there’s a new sheriff in town … GET OVER IT! Support Weis and the team and move on. The gold shirts looked awesome and would stand out more that the red shirts from Nebraska if that debacle were to be relived. I cannot remember when the freshman had more of a clue for their first home game than the seniors.

I don’t care if you buy “The Shirt,” but at least support the current team and staff, and not the old one. The green shirts may return next year when Michigan comes to town, but for now bury them until hoops season.
