Week 7 Recap: Wolverines look ready to thrash Spartans

Michigan is getting better, Michigan State is getting worse.
I said it last week, and I will say it again today.
The proof is in the pudding.
The numbers from both games point to that very statement.
Michigan absolutely dominated Illinois in all areas of the game and looked like a solid team. Certainly the Wolverines are clicking on all cylinders heading into this week’s meeting with Michigan State.
The Spartans, on the other hand, looked awful.
I was on hand for the overtime loss to Iowa and shared my thoughts on the mess that was their performance. (I also had a sidebar on MSU OC Dan Roushar)
MSU actually embarrassed itself with its debacle at halftime and then proceeded to find a way to lose a close game against a lesser opponent.
The Spartans were known for their resiliency and ability to finish games over the last two seasons. This year’s team seems to be on the opposite end.
There will be plenty of talk going on this week about Saturday’s game, but the Spartans need a lot of work if they hope to beat the Wolverines.
I don’t care what the streak is or what the MSU defense has done to Denard Robinson in the past. The Spartans of the past are nowhere to be found right now.
For the Wolverines, this is a must-win on Saturday. If Michigan can’t beat this wounded MSU team, when will the Wolverines beat the Spartans again?
