I'm going to root for MSU over Tennessee today. I dislike MSU but never really saw them as a rival except that they are in the same state as the University of Michigan. For decades we have dominated them and in my opinion, two seasons of them winning against us (football) does not make it a rivalry. However, I lived in florida for a while and have come to despise the SEC. I hate them almost as much as I loathe OSU. I want State to win and knock out Tenn. and I want Kentucky to lose as well. Let the Big Ten shine and the SEC dwindle.
P.S. I would rather see MSU make it to the big dance once again and get blown out like last year, than a SEC team win today or anyonther day.
PPS. Do not mistake me a fan of MSU...I AM NOT, NOR WILL I EVER BE!
