Growing up, I was told that Michigan State wasn't one of Michigan's rivals. That title belonged to Ohio State and Notre Dame.

I would argue that things have changed and I believe the Michigan State in-state rivalry is just as big for Michigan as Ohio State.

I'll stand by it! The reason for the shift is that Michigan hasn't had any success against Ohio State and Michigan State had a run of dominance ... though that may have come to an end.

Whether you believe in the cliché that you can throw the records out the window in a rivalry game or you would rather believe Vegas odds that have Michigan as a 14.5 point favorite, I think the game is a big-time rivalry game.

FS1 believes as much as they will air a special on the rivalry titled, “Divided We Stand.” 

The video shows clips from Tom Izzo, Draymond Green, Devin Gardner and Jimmy King. Izzo describes the rivalry as the "Hatfields and McCoys."

Make sure you have your DVR set for 11 PM Thursday evening, it will air following the Michigan State and Seton Hall basketball game.
