I have no doubt that Indiana is better than us, but when Michigan played both us and Indiana, we were the tougher team
I was just about to post this as well,
maybe he means the team they played their toughest against?? ha

Well they were the third or fourth toughest we've played.

And he manages to take a subtle shot at entire team in doing it. But that is the um arrogance. "We lost by over 20, and were down by more than 30, never lead and where getting blown out by halftime, but that team was not that good compared to the team that whipped our ass by 8."
So wait, Indiana has beat us twice, is in first place, is number one in the country, and yet it is an issue that Trey Burke answers a question and says Indiana is a better team than us? Who cares, it is a non-story.
Yet if he said MSU there would be a post about how Trey Burke bowing down to us.
We are a damn good team who can beat Indiana if the opportunity comes about again. I just think you are grasping at straws OP. Unless you think we are better than Indiana.
Bulletin board material for MSU.
If you can do a half-assed job of anything, you're a one-eyed man in a kingdom of the blind.

Don't get mad bob.
I agree with him that IU is probably better than us....but I'm not sure I'd be needling MSU right now if I was Burke.
While he's probably right, IU is probably better...I'm not sure I'd be needling MSU right now if I were Burke...not the time or place.
1. IU beat us twice, they are pretty tough.
2. As our #2 rival, don't expect any UM player to give us any credit. (obviously IU is our #1 rival....FORKS DOWN!)
3. Who cares what Burke says
4. We will use this as bulletin board material for March 3rd
5. Again who the @#$@#$ cares what Burke says
If you go back and read what OP said the point is IU is a better team than us but they had a harder time beating UM than we did.... being Down 8 vs 20-30 should speak for itself regardless of Burke's opinion.
So if they ask Keith Appling who the top three in the Big Ten are should he say Minnesota is third after Indiana and us since they are the only other team to hang a loss on us?
I'm curious, if it's a non Story, why is Mlive writing it?
The point, that many others have made is that he deliberately called out MSU.....
Eidt: Maybe it is less Burke and more of the Joke of a journalist with his headline that rubs the wrong way, something just does.....

He's butthurt over their pathetic loss at Breslin and is taking passive-aggressive shots at MSU to get the RCMB riled up. Pretty typical Michigan Man shit, nothing to see here.
It should be a non-story to Spartan nation. In my opinion, a Spartan should not read the article and react sensitively. I am assuming MLive is writing it for the scUM fans who go on their site.
Just another reason to dislike them. (not like we needed another reason, though)
IU was probably the tougher loss to have to take because he thought they might win. MSU was easy in comparison, they were dragging ass 10 minutes in.
Just remember, their losses under richrod didn't count, Dantonio only beat hoke because he was handicapped his first year with richrod's players and Spartan Bob.

This is why I wish Izzo would of just sat down and kept the starters in....make it a 45 point victory.....fuck them and fuck burke I hope we smoke their asses again
To die in ann arbor is redundant
So, you believe in the Blue wall. I agree.
I look forward to Izzo and co. delivering another pride-obliterating bitch slap to that team in the very near future.

I hate U of M because they are our rival and my experiences with their fans. I would say the coverage is biased towards Michigan in the Free Press because they are catering to their consumer base, which has a higher proportion of U of M fans. if I were in charge of a newspaper, and did a survey of the demographics of my readers, I too would probably appease the masses to stay in business. I would assume the Lansing State Journal has more coverage of MSU than U of M. I have a Finance/Business background so I can't help but think this way.
I am happy Rexrode has made the switch because the Free Press provides easier access than what the LSJ was starting to do. I haven't noticed the perceived change in Rexrode as some have claimed. He always has been fairly matter of fact with his opinions.

Why don't they call them Indiana State?
