Tyler Brecht walked across the dais of the Breslin Center last week, accepted his Michigan State diploma, then unzipped his green gown before posing for his official college graduation portrait.

What lay beneath has made Brecht infamous and persona non grata in the eyes of many of his fellow MSU alumni.

Brecht, an Alma native, is a lifelong Michigan fan. His love for all things Maize and Blue goes back to his infancy, and even before. In fact, if you hear him tell his story it's hard to find a reason to complain about his split allegiances.

You can hear him explain it all--his history, what it was like wearing Wolverines gear to classes in East Lansing, some of the worst grief he's taken from fellow Spartans and more--in the video above.
