A blog for Michigan Wolverines sports fans and/or card collectors. Visit often for updates on Michigan sports, Wolverines in the pros, Wolverine-related card news and updates to my Michigan personal collections.
The 5-1 Wolverines have a ton of momentum on their side as they welcome Mark D'Antonio and the Michigan State Early Prison Release Program Spartans, an undefeated squad that has valiantly dispatched the likes of Purdue and Rutgers recently.
But of course the Spartans will have focused almost exclusively on this game all year, so nothing's a given. Still, I'm hopeful we see a lot of this today:
Jim Harbaugh has effected an amazing turnaround halfway through his first year as head coach, and even if he won't let any reporters catching him saying it, he knows it's time to restore the Natural Order of Things that has seen Michigan absolutely own this "rivalry" 68-34-5. The Wolverines have gone just 1-6 in the last seven, but I have a feeling Harbaugh will turn that number on its head very soon. For this afternoon, let's just focus on returning to the status quo of beating State at least two-thirds of the time.
