...I think this sort of article is inevitable in the media climate created by the internets. New content that is remarkable and hopefully controversial needs to be created every day to draw viewers (like us) to it and generate ad revenue and/or subscriptions. I mean, how much traffic is going to be created by an article entitled "UM still Michigan's dominant college football team; MSU historical second"? It's the same thing with the alleged turning tide on in-state recruiting.
The only way to squelch articles like this is to beat State in a decisive and humiliating way. I am reading very little about Wisconsin.
