Michigan State's 2016 NCAA Tournament came to an early end on Friday when they lost to Middle Tennessee State in what is one of the biggest upsets in tournament history. MSU fans were rightfully stunned. That included Draymond Green, possibly the biggest MSU supporter.

Fortunately, his mom Mary was there to infuse some humor after a tough loss with the help of Warriors social media whiz Julie Phayer.

Green wasn't the only former MSU player bummed by the loss.

It wouldn't be a true upset loss without a little trash talk from a rival. Michigan punter Blake O'Neill was once the center of social media ridicule. He rebounded from that well and is now on the other side of Twitter jokes.

And, of course, there was plenty of crying MJ with a bonus Magic Johnson version.
