according to former Spartan (and Lion) Ty Hallock:
"The Wolverines are the real deal. They're a good football team. They know how to win. They've got a quarterback who's got some moxie. They've got a head coach who's dead determined to run things his way," Hallock said. "Michigan State has John L. (Smith) syndrome. It's a disease, it's eroding Spartan nation. Right now, with their confidence, I'm not sure they can win a football game."
