this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I was actually a fan of what MSU rolled out uniformz wise two years ago, however today's "all green" look - not so much. The pants...the pants... will be greeeeen See here for fugly. I call this the "green giant" look.
I'm on record that UM and USC have the 2 best looking uniform packages and they should really never really change them ... at least their home unis- great helmets, great color combos. I get why other programs do it and sometimes it works great. This is not one of those times.
On a somewhat more important note Bosch, Glasgow, and Magnuson catch a small break as 6th year DT (23 years old, almost 24) Tyler Hoover is out for the game.
As the title says, MSU is under investigation for their use of planes operated by the state of Michigan for recruting trips by Dantonio and Izzo. The investigation began after the Lansing State Journal ran a series on the planes and how they are utilized. Over a five year period, Dantonio and Izzo combined for 102 flights on state-operated flights. As you likely assumed, The University of Michigan can handle it's own recruiting travel arrangements and is not under investigation.
MUST. BEAT. STAEE.
This got posted by the MSU Community Relations Coalition group on Facebook. Naturally, I assumed this was a fake group (probably created by Michigan fans), but the group appears to be for real. So... enjoy the most Sparty thing ever.
It's Little Brother Week here in the state of Michigan, and as many of you know, this week draws the Sparty trolls out from the dark recesses of the RCMB. And like the swallows of Capistrano, they flock to this board, start shitting on everything, and make a bunch of noise without expressing a single coherent thought.
You will be tempted to engage them. You will be tempted to debate them. This is futile. You can't debate a Spartan troll any more than you can debate floor tile. And we're not talking the nice slate tile; we're talking the shiny trucker rest stop floor tile. Instead, I humbly request that you report their presence to the Moderator Action Sticky thread (http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/moderator-action-sticky-1), and we will take appropriate action.
And to you Sparty trolls, I'd just like to remind you that there are a number of interesting SPAM lists to which one could potentially be signed up. So unless one relishes the prospect of sifting through a dozen needlepoint newsletters every day, methinks you should take this week off.
[EDIT - PGB: If I might add, the flip-side is also true. Please avoid starting "hate" threads that just get people all ramped up and make the Board look second-rate. You stay classy, San Diego!]
Gameday open thread time. How many misspelled signs will we see? Will any be funny at all?
We will see.
Edit: Updated since I gather maybe many of us are with the misses rather than watching 3 hours of MSU and OSU fans. Tell us about your wifeday plans too and how it is much preferrable to seeing 50 signs of Dantonio's head with "NEXT QUESTION" next to it
