Michigan State defensive end Shilique Calhoun likes to go by “Bane” on the football field. Dark Knight fans will know what that means. For the non-Batman fans out there, he was the villain in the latest film. To help achieve the alter ego, the Michigan State equipment team gave Calhoun a Justin Tuck-like facemask, one with several bars close together, like Bane’s.
Calhoun discussed his alter ego, and even offered his best Bane impression on Monday night’s #BTNLive. Thank you, Mike Hall, for making Calhoun offer up this Bane gem: “The city is yours!”
He might not have sounded exactly like Bane, but there’s no doubt he’s been a villain to opposing offenses this season. In two games, the sophomore has three (!) touchdowns. If you’re counting at home, that’s one more than the struggling Michigan State offense.
