Michigan does Spartan fans no favors

A lightning strike near Michigan Stadium during the Wolverine's win over Central Michigan caused a one-hour "weather delay".

For Spartan fans awaiting the MSU-Eastern Michigan game at 3:30 p.m., that caused a problem.

Both the U-M and MSU games were on WXYZ-TV in Detroit, but thanks to the weather delay, the U-M game ran well over the allotted time and into the MSU time slot.

Luckily, the folks at WXYZ saw the U-M/CMU game was a blowout and switched over to the Spartan game - but not in time.

By the time the game switched over, MSU was already down 3-0 a few minutes into the game, causing fans like your truly to ask, "What the hell happened?"

Those Wolverines just can't stop interfering with the Spartans, can they?
