The Michigan and Michigan State rivalry is deep.  So deep that almost nothing has become sacred, including the Magic Johnson statue in East Lansing.

MSU junior guard Alvin Ellis tweeted out a photo of the vandalized statue.  This will definitely act as more fuel added to an already raging fire.
This could also be viewed as a retaliation for what Michigan State fans did to the iconic M in Ann Arbor.

The game on Saturday marks the first time that both U of M and MSU are both ranked in the top 15 since 2003.
