The official College GameDay Twitter account shared some of the best signs seen at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, home to Michigan State. These fans did not hold back, several of them directly targeting the Michigan Wolverines head coach, Jim Harbaugh.
And, with Halloween happening tomorrow, a good number of them referenced the spooky holiday as well.
“Harbaugh hands out raisins to trick-or-treaters,” one handwritten sign read. The ESPN show Twitter account captioned the pic, “That should be illegal.” Clearly, no dentist is running this Twitter page.
Speaking of dentists, one sign also read, “Tucker gives toothbrushes for Halloween.” This time, University of Michigan fans targeted Michigan State head coach Mel Tucker. College GameDay captioned the post, “Dental hygiene is important.”
In another reference to Harbaugh, one sign depicted “Harbaugh’s trophy case” since becoming head coach. Spoiler alert: the sign shows arrows pointing to absolutely nothing under the text. “That’s cold,” the caption on the post reads.
Michigan State fans hit again with another roasting insult. “Did you hear? U of M is Changing Their Field to Cardboard Because They Look Better On Paper!”
Ouch. Even College GameDay had nothing else to say to that except, “That seems unsafe.”
But Michigan didn’t take it lying down. They came right back at Michigan State with a reference to a recent phenomenon called bones/no bones day.
Michigan and Michigan State Battle It Out With College GameDay Signs
The trend refers to a 13-year-old pug named Noodles. Every day, his owner posts a TikTok video showing if he “has bones” in his legs or not and stands up. If he stands, it’s a bones day. If he flops back down, it’s no bones. On bones day, people are supposed to get after it and be ambitious. No bones days you should take it easier, relax, and not take huge risks.
One Michigan fan printed out pictures of the adorable pug after flopping back down and wrote at the bottom of the sign, “Noodles has determined today is a NO MSU win day.”
Noodles the pug has spoken. College GameDay even confirmed in their caption. “Sorry Michigan State it’s a no bones day @NoodlesBonesDay.”
But the account that updates Twitter users on Noodles’ activity turned out to be a Michigan State fan.
“Yes, it is still a bones day and a great day to watch MSU win. Go Green @MSU_Football,” the “Does Noodles Have Bones” account tweeted. That backfired for Michigan fans.
And to put the nail in the coffin, this sign from a Michigan State fan really drove home how down Michigan fans might feel today. “Do you want to be a Michigan fan or do you want to be happy… You can’t have both,” the sign reads. It’s superimposed over an image of crying Michigan fans in the stands from a previous game.
