Can a Wolverine Trap a Lion?
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary the word trap is defined as "something by which one is caught or stopped unawares."
Who will fall into a trap unawares this weekend?
According to everyone over at "The World Wide Leader" Ohio State will be "trapped" by Michigan State while looking ahead to Penn State next weekend. However everyone seems to be unaware of a potential trap being set for Penn State.
This weekend, the other team from Michigan, travels to white-washed Happy Valley looking for some semblance of respect after losing to a MAC team for the first time in its illustrious history. Now they go head to head with a team they are very comfortable facing as they have dominated the series against Joe Pa's Lions winning 10 of their 13 meetings, including the last NINE in a row!
Are the Lions of the Nittany variety overlooking Rodriguez's rolling wreck? Their fans sure hope not. Has the media's love affair with the "Spread HD" offense and continued praise of the team forced Penn State players to find larger pearly white helmets to fit over their enormous heads?
I guess on Saturday we will see if the Wolverines still have some pride left in them and can still set a successful trap.
Oh, by the way, if Ohio State loses this weekend it will be because Michigan State has a better team, not because they got trapped.
