That pretty much sums it up. No one is really sure how this game is going to end up score wise. The one thing you can count on, this game will be as physical as any game we have seen this entire season. Last year's game lived up to that billing, expect the same this Saturday. Michigan State comes into this game with the best defense in the country, and an offense that seems to have found an identity under quarterback Connor Cook.
Michigan will have their work cut out, Devin Gardner will have to play a perfect game, turnover free, in order for the Wolverines to have a chance in East Lansing. In every way possible, this is a MUST WIN game for Michigan. A loss seals any chance of winning the Legends Division and an appearance in the Big Ten Championship game. On another level, a loss means 5 out of 6 for the Spartans, and 2 out of 3 under Brady Hoke. This will not sit well with Michigan fans, who certainly don't want to hear it from Spartan Nation for the next year.
Lloyd Carr always had a way of motivating his teams in an underdog role. We will see what Hoke gets out of this team come Saturday. It's time for Michigan to actually show up for a road game in 2013, play a full 60 minutes, and keep that Paul Bunyan trophy.
The season is on the line, period, and I ask this Michigan team, WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT?
We hope to see you this Saturday whether you're wearing blue or green! Stop in to cheer on your team and enjoy our specials.
