Connor Cook Receives Backlash for 'Disrespecting' Archie Griffin


After Michigan State won the Big Ten Championship, Connor Cook sent Twitter into a frenzy with the way he accepted the MVP Award.

The legendary Archie Griffin, two-time Ohio State Heisman Trophy winner and the award's namesake, attempted to hand Cook the award and was kind of booted to the back. Cook came and grabbed the trophy without a proper handshake, which many saw as disrespectful.

Upon seeing the way the trophy was grabbed and Griffin was treated, Twitter reacted.

The Spartans quarterback made sure to clear things up, simply stating that it came off wrong.
