Last year, football fans witnessed the Mother of all Michigan-Michigan State games. For the first time in years, both teams were ranked, revved up, and ready to go.
The Spartans moved the ball much better than the Wolverines, but still trailed Michigan until the last play of the game.
How was that possible?
Because Michigan’s fantastic punter, an Australian named Blake O’Neill, was having the game of his life, pinning the Spartans deep in their own end, time and again.
