Found April 20, 2013 on Throw The Flag:
The Michigan State Spartan mascot got painted maize and blue over the night which happen to be Michigan’s colors. The mascot also had a giant M painted in it. This act of rivalry is pretty much vandalism but it happens all the time. Michigan State’s spring game happens to be today and I’m sure the act was planned accordingly. Expect the Sparty mascot to get cleaned up shortly. Hahahaha look what happened to sparty #HAIL #GOBLUE #VICTORS… — Buzz Schneider (@Haggerty70) April 20, 2013

Michigan State Football: White takes spring game, receiver position still a question

EAST LANSING — It wasn’t pretty. From weather (go away snow!), to the production on the field, to the chrome helmets that the white teams wore, Saturday’s annual Green-White game had ugly written all over it.

Michigan State Football: The Quarterback Situation

The game gave players a chance to show what they’ve got...

From the Spartan Sideline, Spring Game Report: Five Themes as White Defeats Green

On a day which looked and felt more like November rather than late April, the Michigan State Spartans contested their annual “green against white” game, and the white team, no doubt inspired by their Nike “Pro Combat” helmets, led at halftime and got a late touchdown from the arm of quarterback Andrew Maxwell securing a 24-17 win.

Spartans Green and White Game: Defense Shines Again

  Well we all expected it, and we got it: The defense outplayed the offense in another spring game.  With a 1:48 left in the second quarter the White defense had outscored both offenses 14-3. Chris Laneaux had a 25 yard interception return for a touchdown (thrown by O’connor) and Kyler Elsworth recovered a fumble and took it back 41 yards to the house. But the Green...
