Linking Laconically and the weekend of hate

Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

What's better than beating Michigan once? Having the opportunity to do it twice in the same weekend. Michigan State basketball hosts the Wolverines for the teams' first of two meetings this season on Sunday. The hockey team will also take on Michigan tonight for the second time but the first in Big Ten play.

On the court, it's a game the Spartans should win on paper, but John Beilein somehow has the Wolverines playing well without their best player and starting point guard, who might still be out Sunday. On the ice, Michigan is on a tear, but MSU played the Wolverines tough in a 2-1 loss in the GLI final earlier this season.

Regardless of the results, it should be a nice little weekend filled with hate and vengeful Twitter exchanges.

Just in time, too.

Considering the way both teams play defense, I expect fouls to be 8-1 in Michigan's favor midway through the first half.

Says a lot about the state of the Spartans and Scott that he hasn't even entertained other schools leading up to signing day.
