As an impartial former michigander, I like to see them both do well. In HS I liked UM much more (almost went there) but now I dislike many of their cocky fans riding on nothing but past history and fumes.
Yeah, he's exactly right. MSU football is pretty much a joke. I like seeing them lose and enjoy their misery, but it hasn't been a rivalry since the early-mid 80's. It works the same way for basketball. I like UM but they have no chance against state the past two decades.
Most UM fans, myself included, hate OSU every which way ten times more than they do MSU.
