Photos: Michigan Fan Who Became Meme Last Year Is Much Happier This Time Around

The sad Michigan fan looking happier than in the past.


"Sad Michigan fan" went super viral after his Wolverines lost in tragic fashion to Michigan State last season. Today, he was all smiles in East Lansing.

Last year around this time, he was being made into pumpkins and Halloween costumes. This year, he took in Michigan's 32-23 win over Michigan State at Spartan Stadium, and he's now a bit of a celebrity within the Wovlerine fan base. A few Michigan fans posted photos with the Michigan fan formerly known as "sad Michigan fan."

He has plenty to smile about. The Wolverines are now 8-0 and in command of the Big Ten East, just beat one of their biggest rivals, and are a solid pick to make the College Football Playoff. Oh, and Ohio State didn't exactly light the world on fire in its game against Northwestern earlier, although the Buckeyes did escape with a 24-20 win.

Have a great Halloween weekend, Michigan fan. You deserve it.
