Nick Mangold is an entertainer, no doubt about it. If you follow the former Ohio State center on Twitter (@nickmangold), you know this all too well.

Watch the videos of the hilarious segment.

Sparty takes handoff in Michigan State spring game

Spring games are great because they give fans a glimpse into what their teams will look like in the fall. But, lets face it, the games lack the excitement and entertainment of a real game. Saturday’s Michigan State game had a moment of great entertainment, though. Mark Dantonio made sure of it, as he put Sparty, Michigan State’s chiseled mascot, in the backfield and dialed up a running play. Let’s just say no one will confuse Sparty with Le’Veon Bell, because the mascot struggled on the play, losing yards and putting the ball on the ground. To be fair, the defense was offside. Either way, it was a priceless moment.

Kain Colter freestyles at Wildcat practice

Kain Colter’s versatility doesn’t stop on the football field. The do-it-all Wildcat can rap, too. Colter, who racked up 1,793 total yards and accounted for 18 touchdowns in 2011, showed off his freestyling skills at a recent Northwestern practice. For the record, Colter was mic’d up for the practice, so who knows if he was winging it. It sure seems like he was, though, based on his reaction: “I’m embarrassing myself. On national TV, I’m mic’d up. I can’t believe this!” Watch Colter’s rapping skills in an NUFootballFamily YouTube video in this post.
