"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
Hopefully no one has started something similar, but this is the place for your Spartan hate mail. Any stories about why you can't stand the green and white or their mascot or their ever changing tradition.
Half of my family (roughly) are Spartan fans. I have no problem with any of my family regarding fandom. The rivalry only gets as intense as teasing, plus I can't blame them since they live near Lansing and some have/are working for MSU. Unfortunately almost all of the non-family MSU fans I know are the exact opposite. It's gotten much worse since Dantonio came to town. Before, MSU fans just rooted against Michigan. Now they have a sense of entitlement. It's gotten to the point where I can't wear my M gear (at least half of my wardrobe which I wear religiously, even when times have been down) without running into some sort of unprovoked conflict.
At least Buckeyes have their own state. I'm sick of stupid arguments over our unethical coach, our quiet stadium, the fact that we only win because of our quarterback, etc. I normally wouldn't promote harsh language at all (I don't judge), but I seriously hope the Wolverines beat the shit out of Sparty on Saturday. Win by any means, but please Rich, don't miss out on any opportunities to run it up as classy as possible.
