Receiver Devin Thomas, who played at Michigan State, sported Carolina blue cleats today courtesy of snapper Ethan Albright, a North Carolina alum.

Albright felt compelled to celebrate the Tar Heels’ NCAA basketball championship victory over the Spartans.


“Some of the fellas took it upon themselves to spray paint all my shoes with this funny blue color,” Thomas said. “They got me. I’m not mad about it. I was in the position to get pranked on. I’m taking these off now.”

Making things worse for Thomas is that he missed his flight to the championship game in his native Michigan because he left his ID in the car.
