Column: Ready or not, here comes Michigan State with another big chance for Michigan

(This is an opinion piece by Maize N Brew’s Andrew McDonald)

January or not, there was no hiding that when this week began it would be the toughest stretch of back-to-back games Michigan would face in the regular season.

When No. 5 Purdue rolled into Ann Arbor on Tuesday night for a late night game, you could feel a sense of urgency from the crowd. It was all over social media leading up to the game.

U-M could see it, there was nowhere to hide. They could either respond with a energizing effort or collapse like they did against North Carolina, the only ranked opponent they played up to the game against PU.
