Michigan logo on campus turned into Michigan State logo
Michigan is set to take on Michigan State this weekend in what was once a highly-anticipated rivalry matchup. This year, not so much. The Spartans are 6-1 and favored by 17 points while the Wolverines are 3-4 and have been a major disappointment. Perhaps the vandalism on their campus will be enough to fire up the Michigan players.
Early Wednesday morning, someone — we’re assuming one or more Michigan State fans — painted the block M on Michigan’s campus green and added the letters “SU” after it. As Dr. Saturday noted, the block M was donated to the university by the class of 1953 and is an object of superstition for Michigan students.
The school had the green paint and extra letters cleaned up before lunchtime.

MSU beat Michigan 29-6 last year and many expect this year’s game to be even more lopsided. That said, the Wolverines will be looking to salvage their season in any way possible. The games are played for a reason.
