Hill Let Play On the Field Talk After MSU Players Ripped Headphones Off Pregame

EAST LANSING, Mich. — By now, you’ve likely heard about the pregame incident that happened before the Michigan – MSU game on Saturday, where the Spartans took the field, locked arms, and walked the length, despite Michigan players still being on the field warming up.

It wasn’t without incident, as Michigan defensive tackle Lawrence Marshall was clotheslined and cornerback Lavert Hill had his headphones ripped off.

Despite team captain Devin Bush Jr. taking retaliation into his own hands, Hill took his situation in stride, saying that his response would be on the field.

“Yeah, they tried to do the lil’, whatever they was doing,” Hill said. “They knocked ’em off, but you see they on me now!

“This the type of game y’all want it to be, we just gonna handle it on the field! They can do all that before the game. That ain’t nothing — for real.”

And he and the Wolverines did just that, holding the Spartans to just 94 yards. Not 94 yards rushing or passing — that’s total.

There was all kinds of talk before the game about how this in-state rivalry had grown respectful over the past few years, but with MSU head coach Mark Dantonio seemingly egging the situation on — per Jim Harbaugh — then the tenor has certainly taken a shift.

Hill says that he and Michigan will continue to take the high road, however, no matter the circumstances.

“If they wanna get disrespectful, let ’em be then,” Hill said. “We just gonna keep it classy, do all our talking on the field and just come out with a victory.”
