When kickers get their moments in the spotlight after big kicks, they rarely disappoint. Or let anyone forget about them.

We saw this earlier this spring, when North Carolina made a hilarious video trolling Florida State five months after Nick Weiler’s field goal beat the Seminoles. And we saw it again this weekend at Michigan State’s graduation ceremony.

It may have been back in 2015, but MSU had upset Ohio State then on a 41-yard game-winning field goal from Michael Geiger. Geiger had fun with the moment, windmilling as he ran down the field in celebration.

Geiger brought the celebration back as he walked across the stage to receive his diploma this weekend, windmilling for the crowd as his name was called.


Geiger leaves MSU with much more than just an engineering degree, as he has five school records.

And, as we were reminded this past weekend, he will forever have the moment that (unofficially) lifted the Spartans to the College Football Playoff in 2015.
