Yea, MSU - UM is now more important, because it affects the divisional race.
Quite frankly, the loser of UM-tOSU will likely end up out of the title game. Given how tough the Big 10 is becoming, it's not hard to imagine 6-2 winning the division most years. Look at how good Wisky was last year, and they had 2 Big 10 losses. If UM loses to say, MSU, then State drops a pair to PSU and Iowa, but then UM loses to tOSU, State's going to the CCG.
That's kind of the genius behind what Hollis did in terms of protected rivals. IU should be 9 wins in 10 years at the worst, while tOSU should be 5 wins in 10 years for UM. That extra Big 10 win could give MSU some CCG appearances, which, in turn, increases the chances of State making it to a BCS bowl.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
I can't believe guys are giving UM fanboy this much run....
Its fact, moran.
Fielding Yost hated catholics and hated losing to Catholics and even more after ND beat Michigan 1909, Yost boycotted ND, and even tried to organize a failed B1G boycott of ND late in his tenure as Michigan AD. He also hated Knute Rockne for converting to Catholisim...and stealing headlines which didn't help during Yost's tenure as Michigan AD
The Boycott lasted till 1942 when Michigan and ND were forced into a 2 year series due to WWIi travel restrictions.
After these restrictions were lifted, and despite Frank Lehey's insistence, Michigan still refused to play ND until 1978.
They've only played 39 times, that's not a lot compared to ND's more traditional rivalries (Navy -85 games USC- 83 games, Purdue- 83and MSU-75 games).
