Michigan State football fan drinks ‘U-M tears’ in viral video spinoff


Chris Solari of the Detroit Free Press and Graham Couch of the Lansing State Journal dissect Michigan State’s stunning upset of No. 14 Michigan.

Detroit Free Press

Surely by now, you know that Michigan State football knocked off Michigan, 27-24, at the Big House on Saturday.

And surely by now, you’ve seen the latest TikTok viral video of a man riding a skateboard on a street while sipping juice and mouthing the words to Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams.”

Someone out there as combined the two.

MITCH ALBOM: It took MSU’s Mel Tucker all of one game to revel in rivalry glory

SHAWN WINDSOR: MSU’s stunning upset of Michigan taught me something important

HOW THEY DID IT: MSU will never forget the day Ricky White, Rocky Lombardi slayed U-M

Thomas Crowe took to Instagram after MSU’s win on Saturday and celebrated by hopping on his wheels, grabbing his phone and taking a video.

With Stevie Nicks singing the 1977 hit, which has been revived thanks to social media, Crowe then went to take a swig of his drink.

But it wasn’t cran-raspberry juice, like the author of the viral video, Nathan Apodaca, had.

This was “U of M tears.”

They probably never tasted so good to MSU fans everywhere.

And where do you think they sell that? Probably Walmart, eh?

It’s a funny way for Spartans to rub it in on their Wolverines friends and family. And, thanks to social media, it’ll never go away.
