According to the national sports media, based on a simple google-search, it was actually the "Wolverines" who seized a late lead to defeat Iowa last night, advancing to the semi-final round today. Sound crazy? It is. Are you used to it yet? We are.
If you don't believe it, try googling "msu vs iowa" right now, before it's caught and corrected. Here's what we found when we did just that:
Michigan State vs. Iowa final score: Wolverines seize lead late, win 59-56

The Michigan St. Spartans roared back against Iowa to win 59-56, overcoming a 12-point second half deficit to continue on to the Big Ten ...
Okay, that's just a google-search "blunder"(?), bad enough, but maybe the article itself had things right. WRONG! Here is a link to the actual article:
The Michigan State University Wolverines
In case the entire article is corrected by the time you read this post, check the comments at the bottom of the article. In case those are deleted, here they are:
Many people will tell you that we are "obsessed" with Michigan, that we are "haters", that we define our own existence by what that other team does and doesn't do. What about REALITY? How many times have we all heard our team referred to as "Michigan" on televised sports broadcasts? In my life, more than 100 instances over the years.
What is it that UM does to cast the hocus-pocus spell on the local, state, and national media? Is it a silly pose in the end-zone after a touchdown by an overrated receiver? Is it the silly pep song that gets played over and over and over again, ad infinitum? Is it, dare I say......money?
When you find these sports media distortions, please bring them to our attention, because yes, we are keeping track.
