Brady Hoke On Michigan State: “Dantonio Doesn’t Like Us, And We Don’t Like Them”

The battle for the Paul Bunyan Trophy will take place this Saturday between No. 21 Michigan and No. 22 Michigan State in East Lansing. It’s no secret that the Spartans and Wolverines aren’t exactly fond of each other, and fans get up each and every year for the intrastate rivalry. 

Today, Brady Hoke decided to get it out of the way early that this game isn’t going to be a love affair:

I like the honesty — it’s a good way to get the fire started. I’m sure that Dantonio will feed the quote to his team as a sign of disrespect to help motivate the Spartans. We can only hope that Dantonio responds with some great trash talk.
