Injured MSU hero praises Michigan hospital

  Jalen Watts-Jackson went through a whirwind of emotions on the Saturday of the Michigan State win.

There is no love lost between Michigan and Michigan State on the football field. By now, you’ve probably seen the Spartans’ dramatic game-winning touchdown that stunned the Wolverines in the fourth quarter of Saturday's tilt. But here it is once more:

Jalen-Watts Jackson will forever be a hero thanks to that play, as he returned the bobbled punt for a touchdown. But something that gets overlooked when analyzing such a crazy sequence is that Watts-Jackson fractured his hip on the play. As a result, he needed surgery, and he was taken to University of Michigan hospital.

Thankfully, for as fierce as the Michigan State-Michigan rivalry is on the field, it’s quite civil and compassionate off of it. Watts-Jackson said he felt at home at the University of Michigan hospital.

Some things are just more important than football rivalries, and it’s good to know both of these schools understand that.
