Michigan Leaves Out 'Michigan' When Playing MSU On In-House Schedule [PHOTO]

By Evan Jankens

The Michigan vs. Michigan State rivalry has taken another twist. This time Michigan is stirring the pot.

Michigan decided to call Ohio State, 'Ohio,' since Brady Hoke took over the program. Now it looks as if Michigan won't refer to Michigan State as Michigan State but only as 'State.'

Is this even a big deal? Being a State fan it seems that Michigan is finally taking notice of the school in East Lansing. Maybe it's the winning of the Rose Bowl last year or maybe even the fact Michigan has lost the last five of six?

Is this much to do about nothing, or is Michigan starting to look at Michigan State as a true rival now?
