MSU's Jerel Worthy says 'times are changing' in Michigan rivalry; Ohio State players comment on U-M loss

By Kyle Meinke

INDIANAPOLIS -- Jerel Worthy spearheaded a nasty Michigan State defensive line last year -- one that chewed up Michigan's high-powered offense.

Four months later, he's still basking in the Spartans' four-game winning streak against Michigan. He was around for three of those games before electing to turn pro following his junior season.

"We were able to do a lot of great things," Worthy said Sunday at the NFL Scouting Combine. "We were very successful against Michigan, and I’m one of the few Spartans that can say that.

"It means that the times are changing in the state of Michigan. It means Coach (Mark) Dantonio is committed to (turning) an attitude into a system we didn’t really have when I got there."


Former Michigan State defensive lineman Jerel Worthy doesn't think his early exit for the NFL will impact the Spartans' ability to extend their winning streak against Michigan.

Grand Rapids Press

Michigan State had lost six in a row to the Wolverines before going on its four-game winning streak, capped by a bruising 28-14 victory in East Lansing last season.

After the game, Wolverines safety Jordan Kovacs said Michigan State "beat us up." It was his team's first loss of the season, and it was characterized by rough play on both sides. One player, MSU's William Gholston, was later suspended for throwing a punch.

Worthy said after the game both teams played "dirty." Sunday, he did not back down from that.

Asked what he took away from the violent nature of the game, Worthy said "that it’s a rivalry, and that guys (are) going to go out there and do the best that they can, and go out there and fight to the end."

Michigan State loses Worthy, as well as quarterback Kirk Cousins and several other notable starters, from last year's team. However, Worthy thinks the Spartans will extend their streak to five games when the teams play Oct. 20 in Ann Arbor.

The Wolverines have never lost five consecutive games in the series.

"Michigan State don’t need me to beat Michigan," Worthy said. "We have a great defense that is coming back, minus me and Trent (Robinson).

"Best believe, Michigan, we got the clock up."

Ohio State players comment on rivalry

Michigan concluded its regular season with a win against Ohio State, punctuating a great year with a memorable win. For the Buckeyes, it was much the opposite.

They went 6-7 last season with an interim coach (Luke Fickell) and the specter of NCAA sanctions looming after a memorabilia-for-gifts scandal ensnared their head coach and several players.

Top wideout DeVier Posey was among them. He played in only three games last year, one of which was the Wolverines' 40-34 victory over the Buckeyes. It still stings.

"It just capped off a bad year. No one wants to lose to Michigan," he said with a note of bitterness at the combine. "It happened, but I’ll take our record versus Michigan, our senior class versus their senior class.

"1-3 versus 3-1? I’ll take that."

Michigan snapped a six-game losing streak to the rival Buckeyes with the win, and went on to beat Virginia Tech in the Sugar Bowl.

The Buckeyes lost to Florida in the Gator Bowl to secure their first losing season since 1988.

"It was tough," Ohio State offensive lineman Mike Brewster said. "(The seniors) beat them three times in a row, and we wanted to keep it going. It was one of those games where it sucks we lost, but we left every ounce out on the field.

"I came away from it at least knowing I played my ass off, and I guess that’s all you can do. Still hurts, though. I mean, it's Michigan."


Officials ruled Virginia Tech wide receiver Danny Coale did not score a touchdown on this overtime play, allowing Michigan to kick a field goal to win the Sugar Bowl.

Sugar still tastes bittersweet

Virginia Tech receiver Danny Coale said the oddest question he faced at the combine came from a scout wondering whether he played in the Sugar Bowl against Michigan.

Coale probably wishes the answer were no.

The wideout caught a touchdown pass along the left sideline in overtime of the game, but the play was ruled incomplete after a review. On Michigan's possession, Brendan Gibbons kicked a 37-yard field goal (while thinking about brunettes, which is always key) to give the Wolverines the win.

Thrilling for Michigan. Heartbreaking for Coale.

"I do wish more than anything we could have won," he said. "We let some opportunities slip away, and I would like to think we were the better team, but we didn’t play like we were the better team."

Coale said there is one, small piece of silver lining in the loss.

"Something unique happened: I started getting a lot of fan mail from Virginia Tech fans, which was really nice," he said. "It was a really great way to end it, and it just made me realize that there are way too many good experience I have to let that other one outweigh it."

Sparty pounded IU in East Lansing. IU pounded Sparty in Bloomington. Crean is an ex-Izzo assistant and it was his first win ever vs. MSU. Sparty is a BIG champion for the 3rd time in 4 years. Things could have been worse...MSU could have lost to Purdue at home!


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 2:43 p.m.

the times they are a changing. . . sparty's run is over! BOOK IT!!! can sparty sing "help me rhonda" - the beach boys. GO BLUE!!!!!!


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 6:19 a.m.

I read these Michigan fan rants and I have to laugh out loud! Coach Hoke? So what. MSU pounded on Coach Hoke on October 15th. The Spartans ABUSED Michigan. Your team hasn't had leadership on the field since Mike Hart left. What did I see on the field in East Lansing on October 15th? A team dressed like bumblebees that played like bumblebees! A team that was not only beaten in ALL 3 PHASES of the game...but a team that was DESTROYED in ALL 3 PHASES of the game! I saw a Michigan team that is SOFT! I saw a Michigan team that was outcoached and NOT READY TO PLAY! When I watched the Splenda Bowl I saw a team that gained 184 yards and whose second leading receiver was the long snapper. As a lifelong MSU fan I have NO RESPECT for your team. You stink! MSU has back-to-back 11 win seasons...Michigan has NEVER done so. These are not John L Smith's Spartans. MSU (7-1) had the best record in the BIG in 2011. MSU (14-2) has the best record in the BIG in 2010-11. MSU (24-8) has the best record in the BIG from 2008-11. Face the facts. Your talk is cheap! MSU returns 9 starters from a defense that had 17 tackles for loss vs. the SEC East champs. Michigan's defense played like clowns vs. Virginia Tech. You people are out of touch. MSU wil POUND on Michigan on October 20th. BOOK IT! A few weeks ago we were hearing all the big talk about Michigan's basketball team! Guess what? BYE! BYE! Spartans unbeaten at home in both basketball and baseball during 2011-12. "Dream On" - Steven Tyler

I would expect a spartina to not like Meeechigan but to not respect them is the mentality of a little man


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 12:39 a.m.

Lloyd Carr was a fine man and coach who always had top five recruiting classes. However, his teams always underachieved. I spoke with an employee of the athletic departmant after the Appalachian State fiasco and he said the football program had turned into a country club. This was the season where the team talked big, but looked out of shape physically and predictable on the field. I see Hoke is bringing in top five recruiting classes but he has to make sure he does not fall into the same trap where 7-4 and 8-3 seasons as well as losing bowl games to inferior opponents is acceptable.


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 4:50 p.m.

So I guess all of the underachieving 7-4 and 8-3 seasons under Carr never happened un. My bad.

It is laughable how all of these other programs, Sparty and Ohio for example.... are OBSESSED with The University of Michigan. To those of you Sparty and Ohio people who are reading this: your little run is over and you know it... Coach Hoke is restocking Michigan and bringing Michigan back to being Michigan again.


Sat, Mar 3, 2012 : 1:35 a.m.

Let's see...OSU has one national championship since 1968. The Walverines? One co-championship since 1948. Impressive.

Steve McQueen

Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 5:51 a.m.

It is a natural inclination for some insecure people to hate the best (because they themselves can not reach the top level).... and they are also very jealous of the program's sucees. #1 all time in wins and win percentage... oh and Sparty...before you come to me with tall tales about how "most" of Michigan wins came in the early 1900s blah blah blah. Consider that in the 40 year era which preceeded the RR error... Michigan was ranked the the top 3 in wins and percentage with Ohio and Nebraska... The numbers do not lie.

He's right, times are changing. They are changing right back to the way they were not too long ago when the green team could look forward to an annual whooping at the hands of the wolverines. Times started changing a little over a year ago when Michigan hired Brady Hoke. You can already see the change in the recruiting process &amp; this fall we will all see the change on the field, we are getting back to the tradition of Michigan only letting sparty win every 10 or 12 years or so! Good Night sparty!


Sat, Mar 3, 2012 : 1:29 a.m.

And what makes you think they are changing? Was it that IMPRESSIVE 184 yards in total offense against a joke team from the ACC? Perhaps Brandon should apply for membership in the ACC. Spartans a BIG best 24-8 over past 4 seasons! Read it and weep!

Matt Patercsak

Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 8:42 p.m.

times are indeed changing, as Michigan is no longer the slouch is was for the past 3 seasons. Michigan state looks like a beggar this offseason. trying to squeeze every last drop of their (realllly difficult) 4 year stretch. Michigan State has 1 year left of having a chance at beating Michigan. After that Michigan State beating Michigan will be nothing short of a miracle. Michigan State has won 4 in a row before, and Im sure it was just as exiting. But then Bo Schembeckler stepped in. Now it's Hoke's turn to right the ship spartans: you have a solid program. Hell i even like the way you play football, but don't be thick and act like you've built a dynasty that will continue to reign. You know as well as the next guy that Michigan is not going to lay down anymore, and that the beatings will soon continue.

Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 8:14 p.m.

stop whining about MSU and OSU. OSU has owned us until this year and MSU has owned us the past four years. Stop being the arrogant Michigan fans that make an excuse when we lose and never credit the opponent when they win. I expect Michigan to have success against both our rivals in the years to come. But lets not pretend we haven't been taking a beating for the past half decade. A good friend shared something that makes sense; People respect our football program and hate our fans.

Terry Star21

Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 6:26 a.m.

&quot;But lets not pretend we haven't been taking a beating for the past half decade. &quot; Seriously boo, seriously.....msu 4-6 last ten years, osu 11-14 last 25. &quot;....hate our fans....&quot; that's probably why bowl selection officials always want are fans in their bowls (2012 BCS - Michigan Yes, msu NO).

So true, so true.


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 3:03 a.m.

Q. What &quot;people&quot; hate Michigan fans?? I'd just like to know because, in a trip across the country last year I wore my Michigan cap throughout and got &quot;Go Blue&quot; salutes from here to California and back. Only fans of second rate, perennial loser, football programs &quot;hate&quot; Michigan fans. I got one trash-talk comment from an Ohio State fan in the Phoenix airport: he was the WAITER in the Chili's Restaurant who served my meal. Hah! I told him I didn't know I'd stumbled on a disguised Bob Evans restaurant. Didn't leave much of a tip, either.


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 2:56 a.m.

Fans, Boo speaks wisdom. Let's stop being the best school with the worst fans and put some thought and civility into our responses. If this thread was on any other school's website, you would call them arrogant and small-thinking. We can be better than this. MSU fans, same goes for you. over and out.

Terry Star21

Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 7:19 p.m.

After reading comments from a player up north and one down south, the tone is obvious that their teams have been completely manhandled by Michigan over the history of the game. The bitterness is present, compiled by a small temporary winning spurt thus producing much whining. Michigan football, with a three year exception, does not whine about other teams - the pride, the tradition and the heritage always shine through for our team. Work hard and take care of the business (games) at hand, don't whine about other teams and hold your head and champions you will be. MgoBlueForTiM....our newspapers won't brag about consecutive day streaks.


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 6:22 a.m.

Hey, Terry. Where did you go to school? Michigan does not whine about other teams? LOL! Are you kidding me? Your newspapers don't brag about consecutive day streaks...BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE ANY!

pride before the fall! Go back to playing High school teams and brag about being the best. What a joke


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 12:19 a.m.

Is the three year exception that every UM fan talks about RR? I guess MSU fans can consider any bad coaches (J. L. Smith, Bobby Williams, etc.) we had as exceptions as well than, correct? From the link below it looks like MSU has won 6 National Championships compared to UM's 4 since 1950. If UM wants to talk about their great history then let's talk about the early 1900's when all they played was Harvard, Yale, and Penn (Last I heard those school's were for providing an excellent education, not playing football). Since black athletes were allowed to compete, and other universities were allowed to field a team UM hasn't been relevant. UM is an average team the last I checked, and they still talk about how great they are. UM does have a winning record against MSU, no one is arguing that, but under Dantonio MSU is using 2-3 star recruits to beat UM and their 4-5 star recruits, it's exciting! Whether you have RR or not, you still have better recruiting classes. Your MICHIGAN remember (what ever that means). In the beginning of UM football, around 1400 AD, UM beat up on Harvard and Yale, but since football has become relevant, everyone including MSU has been beating up on them. LOL!


Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 5:59 p.m.

An MSU player says he thinks MSU will keep beating Michigan. What a shock. I think the worse thing a coach faces frequently is players leaving early for the pros. It is easier to win with seasoned players than young ones. I thought Gholston would leave too, I think he can play in the NFL.


Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 5:42 p.m.

jimb. . . we won't need luck. . . see you on the field next fall! GO BLUE!!!!

This is FUNNY! I'll bet that Mark Dantonio has night sweats worrying about what Phil Harrison from Yahoo Sports has to say about his program! Phil also feels the same way about the &quot;EWE&quot;. Funny...the EWE just had a Top 10 recruiting class and is coming off a 6-6 season. How is it that a Top 10 recruiting class could mean so little? That a team that went 6-6 could still be on the way down? If this is the &quot;best&quot; you've got, Blew1st it ain't much!


Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 5:31 p.m.

State is still 4-6 in the last 10 games. So if you're happy to be under .500 in the last 10 games against Michigan, more power to you!!


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 8:46 p.m.

calm down guys..... it'll be ok. scoreboard.


Tue, Feb 28, 2012 : 2:51 a.m.

All ya got is a handful of wins during a Michigan down period. That's all the scoreboard &quot;says.&quot; MSU's last such streak was in the mid-Sixties! Every 45 years or so, Sparty gets lucky - but then MSU fans insist it's &quot;permanent.&quot; That's why Sparty is 22 games short vs Michigan: you can't catch up by having a few consecutive wins every 45 years. Also, Dantonio's buddy Tressel is gone, and with him went the PERMISSION to borrow players from OSU's left overs. Urban Legend won't be handing recruits to Dan-whiny-o (aka, Perma-Frown) so Sparty's going to be a lot thinner and weaker as time goes by. And Hoke just thrashed MSU recruiting in Michigan so there's no more pickins for Sparty here either. That score board in that puny East Lansing stadium is going to be recording more Ls than Ws and no one will notice save for the misguided stragglers still rooting for M-S-Who?


Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 7:19 p.m.

It's not about feeling better. It's about understanding the facts that Michigan still has the superior football program. The facilities are better, the tradition is better, the fight song is better, the academics are better, the recruiting is better, etc. Michigan has beaten the Spartans in 3 of the last 4 basketball games. The difference is, Michigan fans aren't so delusional that they would actually claim that our basketball program is anywhere in spitting distance of MSU's right now. Somehow the Spartans have completely forgotten their place though! You all have let a few down years for Michigan completely overrule any and all logic with regards to the state of your football program. The Spartans are an 8-9 win team if they are lucky and it will always be that way. The last few years are an ANOMOLY!


Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 4:02 p.m.

I've been saying right along that it's natural for MSU players and fans to &quot;bask&quot; in the light of six wins. But it's also delusional: Michigan State will NEVER HAVE the equal to Michigan's program. They only have &quot; win streaks&quot; when other temporary factors negatively affect Michigan's program. The other way to say this is that it's &quot;good&quot; to have MSU occasionally have a streak. That keeps the interest up and without these blips for MSU, interest slackens and the rivalry fades. Therefore, I guess it's okay for a Spartan player like Jerel to do some trash talking. We don't want the mid-level Spartans to actually come to realize the futility of their efforts. In that spirit I say: Go Spartans! You're a wonderful team, you should be playing as BCS champions every year! You're unbeatable! Your spartan skirts are fearsome and intimidating!! You have the most awesome fight song in the land! Your stadium is almost 70% as big as Michigan's! Green and White: what wonderful, inspiring team colors!! Mark Dan-whiny-o is the best coach ever!


Mon, Feb 27, 2012 : 5:03 p.m.

MSU v. Michigan about 100 years ago. &quot; Yost smiled triumphantly as he related the following: &quot;The day we played the Michigan Agricultural College we, of course, were at our best. The M. A. C. was taken on as a preliminary game, which was to be two twenty-minute halves. &quot;At the beginning of the second half the score was 118 to 0, in favor of Michigan. &quot;At this time, a big husky tackle, after a very severe scrimmage had taken place, stood up, took off his head gear, threw it across the field and started for the side line, passing near where I was standing, when I yelled at him: &quot;'The game is not over yet. Go back.' &quot;'Oh,' he said, 'we came down here to get some experience. I've had all I want. Let the other fellows stay, if they want to; me for the dressing room.' &quot;And when this fellow quit, all the other M. A. C. players stopped, and the game ended right there. There were but four minutes left to play.&quot; William Hanford Edwards. Football Days / Memories of the Game and of the Men behind the Ball
