Even though they've proven themselves over the past six seasons by winning 65 games, it seems that the Michigan State Spartans just can't get any respect.

Heck, look at just this season alone - the Spartans weren't anyone's first choice to win the Big Ten East, but they took down both Ohio State and Michigan to emerge victorious before beating Iowa and taking the Big Ten Championship. And still, they can't get any respect. Need proof? Check out this montage of people disrespecting Sparty.

It seems no one believes that the Spartans can beat the Alabama Crimson Tide in the Cotton Bowl on New Year's Eve, but we have faith.

Go Green!
