In the midst of a disastrous four game losing streak, Michigan State was on the road in Ann Arbor to take on rival Michigan, but, as expected, the Spartans’ season only got worse.

Despite taking a 7-0 led in the first quarter, Michigan State could do little else right and was over matched throughout as Michigan rolled its way to a dominant win, delivering an embarrassing 44-10 knockout to Michigan State.

Michigan would put an exclamation point on their first home win over Michigan State under Jim Harbaugh late in the fourth quarter when Patterson found a wide-open Cornelius Johnson behind the Spartan defense for a 39-yard touchdown.

The loss is an unfortunate, but predictable and somewhat fitting moment in what has been a season filled with disappointment and frustration for fans and now has the Spartans needing to win their final two games of the season against Rutgers and Maryland just to qualify for a bowl game.

As many Spartan fans turn to social media to call for Coach Dantonio to be fired, last week AD Bill Beekman said that was not even under consideration. After today’s game, Spartan Nation addressed those people, “For every single person demanding that Mark Dantonio be fired you need to understand something, whether or not you are correct it absolutely will not happen. He was one of the key reasons AD Bill Beekman got his job. He will go when he wants to and not before.”
