Friday Football Fix (links)

Michigan Expats - Sports - See All Sports

We are less than 24 hours away from the hottest ticket in college football kicking off and I have a mini-keg of Bell's Oberon chilling in the fridge and will begin cutting up ingredients for chili tomorrow, but first lets get a final rundown on what people around the state and the nation are talking about the Spartan/Wolverine clash.

If you haven't found it yet, scroll down and you can listen to Mr. Sig and I preview tomorrow's game including our own analysis and predictions. Or download it on iTunes and listen to it on your commute home tonight or en route to the ballgame tomorrow.

UPDATE: Apparently, ESPN wants to kick the state of Michigan this week. First, College Game Day chooses the Alabama/South Carolina game. To add injury to insult, it has assigned Matt Millen to provide the color commentary for the Michigan/Michigan State game tomorrow. I'm so outraged, I don't know where to begin. Please feel free to help me out in the comments.

First lets start out with high school football where the top two teams in the state square off at Bob Perry Field at Red Arrow Stadium. Yes, East Grand Rapids (6-0) travels to Lowell (6-0) to take on the Red Arrows this evening. The long-standing rivalry has taken on new meaning over the last decade as the two OK-White teams have combined for nine state championships. Jane Bos takes a look at the last ten years of the rivalry.

Back to the Saturday clash in Ann Arbor. Links and predictions.

Since, I'm want to finish the post and won't search for additional predictions, the Wolverines hold the edge 5-4, with Bernero abstaining (Mr. Sig and I split). Enjoy the game tomorrow.

  1. Impressive win by the Spartans, 34-17. The MSU defense bent but did not break, contained Denard Robinson, and forced turnovers.

    The Michigan State offense dominated the line of scrimmage and managed some big plays in the passing game.

    Very impressive game by the Spartans who can't let up if they want to contend for a Big Ten title.

    Michigan needs to learn to tackle to prevent another collapse in Big Ten play and make a good bowl game.
