Linking Laconically feels the hate

Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

It's finally here. Regardless of records, this week is always one of my favorites, especially in recent years. Nothing beats rivalry games, and the chance to obliterate Michigan is always welcomed.

However, I'm willing to bet nobody here is feeling any mercy towards the Wolverines.
