Michigan State is facing off against bitter in-state rival Michigan during Week 8. While the first half of that action has not gone the way of the Spartans, the university is being criticized over an interesting choice for part of a pre-game trivia game.

According to multiple fans in attendance, Michigan State used a pre-game trivia question on the birthplace of Adolf Hitler ahead of kickoff. That trivia segment was complete with a graphic of Hitler broadcast on the jumbotron.

At the end of the day, there’s no denying the questionable nature of the question and the idea of using Hitler at all for such a pre-game event with fans. The university has experienced significant blowback to the usage of Hitler on social media, and it is not hard to see why.

Some fans called the move tone deaf while others noted the usage of Hitler had to be given the green light somewhere in the process which is hard for many to fathom.
