What was once only a theory has become a reality.
Sept. 30, 2008, State News: Former MSU football player Tony Mandarich has admitted to using steroids and cheating on a steroid test administered in conjunction with the 1988 Rose Bowl, which the Spartans won.
Mandarich was an offensive lineman for MSU in the late 1980s and was selected by the Green Bay Packers with the No. 2 pick in the NFL Draft in 1989. Mandarich, dubbed "The Incredible Bulk" by Sports Illustrated prior to the draft, was a bust in the NFL during his three seasons with the Packers.
Mandarich tells of his steroid use and the Rose Bowl steroid test during an interview on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" that will air Wednesday at 9 p.m. Mandarich has a book scheduled to be released in March 2009 that is expected to detail his steroid use.
