Michigan has many teams beat before they even step foot on the field. While scUM can usually put decent talent on the field, even during the "Bo years" they were far from the "World Beaters" perception they have - their Rose Bowl record and fact they have exactly one shared Natiional Title in the last 60 years is all the proof you need.
Unfortunately the mental image many teams have when they see their pretty helmets is more than they can handle and immediately succumb to the magical aura that has been so cleverly created by the media and the U of M athletic department.
To Michigan's credit, unlike many teams they rarely beat themselves. If USC can get beyond the fact they are playing (gulp) "mighty" Michigan and simply play up to their abilitites while securing the ball, you shouldn't have a problem.
Good luck...the Cocks will have half the state of Michigan pulling for you!
It's funny because no one has anything to say about the "Lewan is a racist". They just keep repeating it like a broken record. And just because he by some chance is a "dirty player" doesn't make him racist...I guess Suh for the Lions is racist towards white people. I haven't seen or heard anything, honestly, about Lewan saying or doing anything "racist".
Also, if you want to talk dirty players, see your boy Gholston trying to break a neck at the bottom of the pile. He must be racist.
Also if you want to comment on the classiness of fans, look no further that video clips of your stadium chanting "he's a pussy" when Braxton Miller went down. Your coaches feel the need to take stabs at Michigan even when Michigan is not the topic.(See response from Narduzzi about Taylor Martinez and how he had to talk about Denard). Take a look in the mirror before you go calling fans "douche nuggets" and classless.
As for the OP, if you head over to the Wolverine247 board, no one will call you a "douche nugget" or say people are queers. People will tell you about our team, some biased some unbiased. Most will break it down like SpartanRocky did.
Meh, it's a rivalry. It's very similar if someone was to come to our board asking about clemson.
I figured I'd get some entertaining responses, and as usual, tRCMB didn't disappoint.
Welcome to tRCMB douche nugget!

Don't post poop!
For your information, Lewan has admitted publicly that he instigated the Gholston thing by calling him a N*****.
For someone named Spartytruth, you sure don't know what you're talking about.
For YOUR information, Lewan didn't call him n*****. He called him Tom
If I got up in arms every time someone on Wolverines247 ripped on MSU, I'd have a stroke.
I don't think Lewan's racist; the "Tom" comments were in reference to RichRod not knowing Gholston's name on a recruiting visit. I do think he's a dirty player; Craig Roh said that verbatim. Then again, most good OL have a dirty streak to them.
The S. Car guy asked us for info. We're giving him our opinion. I'm sure if he went on Wolverine247 and asked about MSU he would get nothing but straight information and not one slight against the program.

Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
I doubt that.
As far as the team, they're fundamentally sound. The new staff have improved that element significantly. If you do not put them away when you have the chance, you could leave yourself victim to some 'rainbow, wounded duck' style completion late in the game. A bit like a vampire, if your team gets the stake over their heart during the game. Plunge it deep. Rinse. Repeat.
As far as the fans - just take a look at the posters name Yankee--UM ##. I'm sure there are many New Yorkers who came to school in lovely Ann Arbor, perhpas this guy did.. It's ironically accurate though of 80% of the bandwagon followers. You'll have Cowboys - UMich or ManUnited-UMich or DaleEarnhardt-UMich. An unwashed mass of bandwagon, slack jaws.
No, he didn't. That story was completely made-up and fabricated by a member of this board who claimed he "knew what was said." He got called out and admitted to having no source and no basis for that claim, but that was six pages deep in the thread and apparently half this board has forgotten about it.
No one knows what Lewan said to Gholston while he was holding his head down, but I can pretty much guarantee you it wasn't just "Tom."
Neither Gholston or Lewan have ever confirmed what was or wasn't said before Too Tall threw that punch. The poster who claimed he called him "Tom" was just talking out of his ass.
What he said. If you get a lead, just keep adding it to it. Forget "sportsmanship" with these toolbags. They aren't going to shake your hand if they lose anyway. If you think at anytime in the game that you have a big enough lead...you don't . Score more. SCum never knows when they are beat even after the game is over. They will never conceed a game or admit afterward that you beat them or were the better team. It is always about what they didn't do...mainly..."We didn't play Michigan football."
Like he said about them being a vampire...plunge the dagger deep into their heart...if you can find it that is...and then cut off the head after that!

First, to the OP, "they're Michigan." According to their head coach (who is not slim by the way) this pretty much sums up all you need to know about them - which is probably true because by saying that their coach exhibits arrogance and douche-baggery.
Second, to T-Pain, there is no worry because this game is not going to occur at night-time on the front porch (or outside of a ground-floor window) of some dwelling in Ann Arbor.
They have 1/2 a Nat'l Championship in the past 65 years. Yes, you read that correctly. You'd think they've won about 15 in that time frame from hearing them talk about their "history", correct?
That tells you what you need to know about UM. A lot of talk, self-perceived greatness, but very little high level performance. No different with this year's UM team. A "name" team with very little substance.
He whispered "Rosebud"
I didn't read it on this board. I know it's tough to fathom, but people do read other message boards to get information.
Although I do find it funny that in one sentence you say that no one really knows what was said...and in the next sentence you pretty much guarantee you know what wasn't said.
Yup. Rich Rod kept calling Will Gholston "Tom" on his recruiting visit because he thought that was his name. He was a 5-star prospect at this point.
Lewan called Gholston "Tom" a couple times during the 2011 game. Things got chippy between the two.
So, in your opinion, national championships are the only indicator of playing at a high level?
I don't care if you read it elsewhere, the source of that unsubstantiated rumor was this board. Gholston and Lewan did not discuss it. It's fucking ridiculous that the rumor has been perpetuated to this extent.
If you think Gholston is so violent and hot-headed that being called "Tom" would make him throw a punch, you don't know much about him.
Of course, things would have gotten chippy anyway since Lewan was grabbing Will's facemask all game.
There are a hand full of starting LTs in the NFL that wouldnt be able to handle Clowney.
Dont you mean, Clemsux?
