there would have to be some to wash away
Maisel compares Texas A&M's tradition to Sparty's, and then shows why their move to the SEC makes sense but does kill the rivalries in the Big 12.
Pure Michigan parody guy finally hits MSU. Although he claims he's not a MSU alum, this is pretty complementary compared to his other videos.
So, I was thinking, with the big "Clash at Crisler" (see what I did there), looming on Saturday, I thought it would be interesting to share the MgoCommunities favorite Michigan vs. MSU moments. Whether that moment is in football, basketball, hockey, etc..doesnt matter.
For me that moment had to have been, in 2003 watching Chris Perry rush 51 times for 221yds, in East Lansing. I remember sitting in the upper section behind the Michigan sideline surrounded by Sparty fans who looked just like the Sparty defense, getting beat-up and warn down all the way to the very end. It was the only time I've been to a game in East Lansing to see Michigan pull out the W. So, walking out of there being able to give the big F U to sparty fans was a wonderful moment for me, especially since I grew up in the greater Lansing area and all of my friends from the area are die-hard sparties.
Let the recollections begin...
I didn't see this posted on the board, and it's been posted on detnews in the last hour. It's a Lansing based poll, but it sort of makes sense. I imagine we have a much larger national following, and while I'm not sure how this could be measured, I imagine our fans are more loyal - since they show up for the football games.
Article says, "Where State may have once been a “rivalry game” to pay lip service to, now it may determine which way the season, and coach Rich Rodriguez’s entire tenure, turns."
While I think it would certainly help Rich, I don't believe that it's going to determine his immediate future. Bowl eligible this year is the hard deck as I see it. I do not believe we have the defense to run the table, or even to win more that 8 regular season games.
Don't get me wrong - want us to beat MSU. Want us to run the table. Just don't see it happening.
