According to the Lansing State Journal,  Magic Johnson decided it was better to share a bold prediction than add more drama to the Michigan State-Michigan football rivalry that will play out this weekend in Ann Arbor.

A day after a 12 foot, 6,000 pound Johnson statue was vandalized on MSU's campus with U-M graffiti, he posted on Twitter a one sentence message of encouragement about Saturday's highly anticipated 3:30 p.m. game at Michigan Stadium.

Johnson said and I quote: "I'm looking forward to seeing my MSU Spartans beat U of M on Saturday!"
