ok. Hard to believe its time to begin one of the best weeks in college football.

MICHIGAN-MICHIGAN STATE WEEK

Looks like this game will be really good.

Surprise, surprise...i go going for Michigan State.

The spartans will be looking for revenge from last year's game. Spartans look like a completely different team this year compared to other years. Their offense matching up against the wolverines defense will be very key in this game. Good game but sorry michigan fans. This game goes to the Spartans.

GO GREEN! GO WHITE!

I actually wanted Michigan to beat the Badgers, so they would have hopefully been a little more complacent coming into EL.

This should be an incredible game, and I'll be there. 13 rows up in the north endzone biggrin.gif

I will be curious to see if Mike Hart plays for Michigan this saturday. The Wolverines desperately need Hart to play.

I noticed with the Spartans this year that Stanton isn't aggressively running the ball around like he did last year. More experience and maturity are a major factor. Michigan State is relying more on running backs Teague, Caulcrick, and Ringer...rather than Stanton

carr should consider himself lucky to still have a job after this. going 2-2 with still games against michigan state, penn state, minnesota, iowa, and ohio state. Could be a very rough year for big blue.

Michigan is 2 - 2 right now. They have effectively ended their season, a chance at the Rose Bowl, their chance at a big BCS Bowl isn't going to be good.

They already have major problems.

Penn State is 4-0. At the beginning of the season, I would have easily penciled that a W for michigan in their schedule. Not anymore.

The last time Michigan was .500 this late in the season, they won 8 straight on route to the citrus bowl. With the tougher part of Michigan's schedule coming up, I don't think the wolverines can repeat that task.

I can't friggin' wait. After last year's game, we need to get some revenge.

And I can't remember the last time State went into the game with a better record that UofM either. Anyone?

And I will not be attending the game, but I will be tailgating heavily. smile.gif GO STATE!
And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

what about the year that michigan state had burke and burress, the year michigan state went to the citrus bowl against florida.

I know the year of the "chuck it to duckett" or to michigan fans, "the last seconds that lasted forever", the wolverines had a better record but it was close.

If Michigan beats Michigan State, the teams are tied in Big Ten standings, and the tiebreaker for h2h would go to the Wolverines.

If Michigan wins out, only Wisconsin has a chance to beat them, and Wisconsin still has to play Purdue, Minnesota, Iowa, all of whom could beat them.

Has anybody informed Henne that Braylon graduated? He is still throwing to high and deep to Edwards...

I must say the Michigan offense is awful without Hart and Edwards -- we could see a .500 Big Ten season and no bowl game if they don't shake the cob webs. I still think they can pull off a win against a very good looking State team, maybe.

Michigan also is relying a ton on breaston and this year, he has been disappointing. I would start Manningham and Avant. Those are the only receivers constantly contributing.

I know they're 2-2 but I like how Michigan falls over 15 spots for losing by 3 points. Anyone else think Michigan gets the shaft in the polls sometimes?

Anyways, this is the first time I've been worried about playing MSU in years. Not to say that I don't think MSU ever has a chance to beat us, but I get worried when I don't think we'll win. This is going to be a game where Michigan shows what it's made of, either they're going to fade into the Big Ten night by losing again or they're going to wake the hell up and win a big game for once.

its not 15 spots. It is only 12 spots. Michigan dropped that many when they lost to notre dame.

Michigan better wake up in this game. They need to find a way to control this game. Mike Hart is extremely needed for the wolverines.
