Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is the latest Super Bowl hero, and Michigan State has a connection to him, but it's kind of sketchy, and so it's probably best to just let it go. But I can't...

Foles, who will make himself rich in the free agent market after leading the Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl title, did begin his college career at Michigan State. But he left after one season when he figured out Kirk Cousins was soon to be the Big Man On Campus.

MSU tweeted about their connection to Foles, possibly as a way of getting under the skin of Michigan fans, who had long rode Tom Brady's coattails.
