What kind of game does Michigan head football coach Brady Hoke expects Saturday's Michigan State-Michigan confrontation to be like. One thing is for sure is that he expects it to be "bloody."
“When you play against spread teams, you’re playing a little bit more
of a finesse football game,” he said Wednesday night on the “Inside
Michigan Football” radio show.
“This week, because of pro style
personnel all those things, this is going to be more, I’m going to
bloody your nose. I’m going to come off the football, we’re going to
lead with the fullback, we’re going to run the power play… we’re going
to find out about us as a defense. How we tackle, how we run through the
football, how we wrap. That’s going to tell us a little more.”
Certainly, Michigan State is going to do everything it can to keep its four-game winning streak against Michigan, especially since there's not really much left in this season for the Spartans to fight for at the moment.
