Newsstand: Hunter Dickinson fires back at MSU football troll

The Michigan Wolverines are without center Hunter Dickinson, who transferred to Kansas last offseason, but they still have a fan and defender in their former All-American big man.

After a 73-63 loss to Michigan State on Saturday night, Spartan linebacker Jordan Hall attempted to troll the Wolverines by tweeting out a photoshopped image of Juwan Howard working at a McDonald’s. Dickinson took exception to the trolling of his former head coach and fired back.

“I don’t think the sport that lost 49-0 should be involved in the trolling,” Dickinson said.

Dickinson, who was polarizing at times at Michigan, is averaging 18.2 points and 11.0 rebounds this year with the Jayhawks, considered one of the best teams in college basketball. His former squad currently sits at 8-18 on the year and are facing an uphill battle in ending on a high note in Howard’s fifth season on the job.

“I am bought in,” Howard said after the game on Saturday night. “I love this place and I love our players and I never ran or never quit my life. That’s a good question because that let me know you really don’t know. And as you get to know me a little bit better and know my story, every time and everywhere I’ve been I’ve always faced the noise and I roll up my sleeves and find solutions. 

“And we’re gonna be solution-based as we finish the season. Next season is not here. We have to finish the season strong.”

Michigan quote of the day

“We talk about a guy like Donovan Edwards, Colston Loveland making sure we have enough ammo in the season so we can put those guys in great situations. Because it’s players, not plays lots of times. How can we get [Michigan sophomore receiver] Semaj Morgan the ball? It’s finding those things and then hey, you’ve got to find new ideas. Studying NFL teams; studying other successful teams in college football. We may add a thing or two. We’re kind of assessing the season, assessing where we need to go, and assessing our roster.”
