Draymond Green is a very happy man today.

The former Michigan State Spartans star turned three-time NBA champion got to watch his alma mater knock off its rival in Michigan on Saturday afternoon.

Michigan State upset No. 13 Michigan, 27-24, at the Big House in Ann Arbor, Mich. on Saturday afternoon. This is yet another devastating loss for Jim Harbaugh's program, but it's a huge win for Mel Tucker's squad.

The Spartans' first-year head coach had a rough start to his career in East Lansing, as Michigan State lost to Rutgers last weekend. But they bounced back in a major way today, knocking off their rival.

Green is a happy man.

"It’s a much better place baby!!!" Draymond said of his alma mater in comparison to Michigan.

Green also had a message for former Michigan Wolverines star Charles Woodson. "Hahahahahaha GO GREEN. (Charles Woodson) its still a Green state baby!!!! Everybody get out and VOTE!!" he tweeted on Saturday afternoon.

Woodson admitted on the post-game show that he agreed with one aspect of Green's postgame message - the get out and vote part.

Outside of that, it's a rough day for the former Michigan Wolverines star.
