Today is the 100th time Michigan and Michigan State have played football. It is almost always a good game.
As institutions, they both suffer from an especially delusional form of intelligentsia derangement syndrome. As Mr. Dooley pointed out, they think they "make the wather run."
D'ye think th' colledges has much to do with th' progress iv th' wurruld? asked Mr. Hennessy.
D'ye think, said Mr. Dooley, tis th' mill that makes th' wather run?
-Finley Peter Dunne, Mr. Dooley's Opinions, 1913
May today's game remind us of something Notre Dame's Frank Leahy said, "A school without football is in danger of deteriorating into a medieval study hall."
