I have learned not to link to the FREEP. So I have copied and pasted the best parts of the article for your consumption. It goes without saying that Michigan was better than Sparty across the board, I'm just choosing to have as little about MSU as possible in this post. No doubt Michigan is truly among the leaders and best! Have a great day and GO BLUE!
