I don't know... seems like plenty of the diehard Sparty fans I know here in West MI are harboring some sort of inferiority complex towards UM. A lot of their dislike seems to be rooted in the # of championships UM has won and how its fans love to focus on that (getting to that in a second), which is where I'll buy the inferiority idea for State fans.

Of course, that's generally balanced out by the number of UM fans who exude this odd air of superiority, pointing to past championships which are falling further and further behind in the rearview mirror (at this point, it's similar to Habs fans pointing to having the most Cups but not actually having won anything recently).

I moved to the Michigan area in 2002 and at the time was pretty neutral towards each school. Didn't take long living with both fanbases to dislike both programs, though.
