Jamal Spencer had hilarious report about Michigan beating Michigan State (Video)
We can only imagine how many people turned off Saturday night’s game between Michigan and Michigan State assuming that the Wolverines held on for a close victory. It sounds like the folks from at least one news network in Michigan were among them.
After the Spartans won on one of the most insane plays you will ever see, Jamal Spencer of WZZM in Grand Rapids gave a full report describing ecstatic Wolverines fans exiting The Big House.
“Michigan coming up with a crucial stop and they were able to run out the clock,” Spencer said. “People were spilling out of Michigan Stadium into the streets of Ann Arbor celebrating, as the Paul Bunyan trophy is back in Ann Arbor for the first time since 2012.”
Spencer later owned the embarrassing mistake:
Not the first time I've made a mistake in my career and it won't be the last. Gotta take the bad with the good https://t.co/N4vxwJRgyM

In Spencer’s defense, a reporter at WZZM’s headquarters later came on the air and said that was “our mistake” and described the actual ending of the game, so it sounds like he was fed the bad information. Heck, even Michigan State’s equipment staff had given up to the point where they neglected some of their duties. It was just one of those nights.
