Michigan State attempts poorly planned dig at Michigan football’s CFP ranking

Published

Michigan State decided to try an awkward pregame jab at the College Football Playoff ranking of in-state rival, University of Michigan.

Dave Holmes (@DaveHolmesTV) posted the picture of a CCTV screen in East Lansing showing this week’s CFP ranking.  The techies at MSU decided to poke fun by replacing Michigan at the #4 spot with Michigan State.

This has to be a joke, right?  There is no earthly reason for Michigan State to assume that they are worthy of a CFP ranking.  This move is very surprising, considering Michigan’s 21-7 handling of MSU in East Lansing last month.

Nation, what do you think?  Is this a light-hearted joke or a sincere push by MSU to claim playoff relevancy?

Fired up Don Brown talks about Michigan’s dominant performance vs. Penn State

Dominant.

For anyone who watched Michigan‘s 42-7 win over Penn State this past Saturday, that is likely the first word that comes to mind.

The Nittany Lions could do absolutely nothing against the Michigan defense and their only score came late in the fourth quarter when the Wolverines had many of their defensive starters out of the game. During the game, Michigan gave up a total of 186 yards with 75 of those coming on the final drive for Penn State.

Things were MUCH different a year ago when Penn State destroyed Michigan 42-7. In that game, Penn State racked up 506 yards of offense, including 224 rushing yards.

That is a game which has been on Wolverines’ defensive coordinator Don Brown‘s mind every morning for the past year.

“They handed it to us last year. I did a poor job against them, and the players feel the same way,” Brown said. “I wake up every morning and think about it.”

On Wednesday, Brown joined The Jamie and Stoney Show on 97.1 The Ticket and he was clearly fired up as he was talking about last year’s shellacking at the hands of the Nittany Lions. In fact, Brown put a lot of the blame on himself and even said he “wanted to punch myself in the nose about 10 times.”
