We have yet another reason why the Spartans cannot stand Michigan Wolverines fans. The night before Michigan State's spring game, the Sparty Statue was vandalized with block M that was spray painted across the mid-section of the statue.
The statue was also vandalized in March with Valparaiso gear, the night before the men's basketball team played in the NCAA Tournament.
Over the years, Sparty has been victimized numerous times. The week leading up to the Michigan vs. Michigan State football game, members of the MSU band take turns protecting the statue from vandals.
