What would Michigan State week be without getting interrupted for some news about Jim Harbaugh?

Some of our critics say Off Tackle Empire needs to conform to established standards of journalism.

With this transfer, Jeff George, Jr. has become the only quarterback on the Michigan roster to play against Michigan State and defeat them. Proud though they may be, Michigan has not let their pride blind them to the opportunity to learn from their superiors the Illinois Fighting Illini.
