The Situation causes a stir in East Lansing

It turns out that Dave Brandon isn't the only athletic director in the state of Michigan who has had to deal with some fan backlash in recent days. It seems tradition and mascots are merely peanuts when it comes to reality television stars.

On Friday Michigan State athletic director Mark Hollis tweeted that Jersey Shore "star" Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino would be coming to a Michigan State game this season, and that he was a Spartans fan.



As you might expect, this caused quite a bit of backlash amongst Spartans fans that don't really want to be associated with The Situation or anybody who likes to spend their days tanning, drinking and fighting. So much so that Hollis had to get back on Twitter a little later to make sure that everyone understood that Sorrentino was coming to Spartan Stadium on his own, not as a guest of the school.



I also find Hollis' spelling of humorous to be humorous as well. As for The Situation, why he wants to attend a Michigan State game, I have no idea.

Why would the AD even feel the need to tweet this? Absolutely trivial and ridulous.
