I wonder if MSU's players think Burke is God now.
And I still need a muppets episode where some muppet bludgeons the ref muppet. Aaarggghh reffing will be the end of me.
Burke was tremendous. That said, we had a ten point lead with four minutes to play. This victory was a miracle and I feel pretty damn good. I feel like slapping the floor. But it shouldn't have come to being a miracle. Hopefully we learn from this and Indiana stumbles
Dude,. it would have been the ultimate gift if MSU had won. We made zero threes, Stauskas got hurt, and got called for all kinds of phantom bullcrap down the stretch (lane violation, over-the-back, that blocking call). They caught one break after another all day. Nix's missed FT was poetic justice.
We didn't close out the game that well, but we earned it. MSU couldn't beat our halfcourt defense.
I think Burke's steal from Appling was "poetic justice."
Have a beer, man.
Yes! Have some!
What a relief. Anyone else think of Woodson watching Burke just shut them down with the game on the line?
MUPPETS!!!!! Gota love da muppets!!
Watching Trey shake commissioner Stern's hand (or whoever the new commish will be) will be a sad sight. Only seeing him hold up a Pistons #3 jersey will slightly ease the pain.
Trey Burke is FLOOR SLAPPING GOOD.
Didn't make a 3 and won the game by defense. I'll take it!
Burke slapping the court in front of the msu bench after we went up ten was fucking classic.
The game was pretty amazing too! Good game to have Harris watch in person !
NO 3's. Unfreakin'real.
I think Derrick Nix might want to formally rescind his comments about Keith Appling doing everything Trey Burke can do. Lololololololol
Trey "the fonz" Burke!!
Like the Fonz, but cooler
for Sparty. It's a nice win, but just like we will never rush the floor when we beat Penn State, we should never do Muppets when we beat Sparty. They're not worth it!!!!! Just sayin'.
You're an idiot. Just sayin'.
In basketball? Look, I know youre struggling right now. Would have been better if you were right, huh?
Who are you responding to?
Calling names. That is such a mature form of discussion. Terribly disappointed in you, Don!
Or maybe he doesn't suffer fools. If you don't understand the importance of beating State in basketball, then either you're literally a 3 year old or you're a fool.
JUST SLAPPED THE FLOOR IN MY KITCHEN
Can someone please explain the Muppets thing to me? Explaining snowflakes threads would be nice too. Thanks.
in this post here:
I have unilaterally implementing a new rule. Well, I guess the rule isn't NEW so much as it just hasn't been enforced. Either way, it's a thing now, and it's called the Snowflake Rule. The Snowflake Rule is simple: threads that just repeat the same stuff everyone else is thinking are not thread-worthy. Here are some ways to know if you are in violation of the Snowflake Rule: Your thread title begins with the words "My thoughts on," "My opinion regarding," or "What I think about" You cover a topic tat has been covered multiple times on the board or on the front page The evidence supporting your post's hypothesis is entirely (a) opinion and/or (b) empty, high-level, tautological statements like "Denard is fast" Your conclusion is something either obvious or completely opinion-based, like "we will be better if the blockers block people" or "Kalis should play because I think he'd be better." Or, as a totally hypothetical example, "Denard should run because Denard is fast at running." Bottom line: posting a unique take on things is perfectly acceptable. If you want to post about a proposed defensive alignment or scheme that will allow the line to get better penetration? Knock yourself out. Want to demonstrate why Denard should run more by providing an analysis of past running QBs or of Michigan's success based on various run/pass ratios? We'd like to read it. But posting your take on a common question will get your thread pulled like something from a Weezer song.
I'm about 99.9% sure the Muppets thing comes from the MMB playing Temptation and the Hawaiian War Chant which are featured in the Muppet videos above.
Am I 100 percent sure that the muppets are based off the Marching Band. At halftime, the Band used to play Temptation. Then the announcer would say " Because you can't have one without the other . . . The Hawaiian War Chant!" Because, obliviously.
The rest of the story . . . a Michigan grad worked on the Muppet show back in the day and managed to get both Temptation and the Hawiian War Chant as skits on the show.
Brian or someone else eventually found these old Muppet clips on the internet, because everything hiding can eventually be found on the internet, and the rest is MGoBlog history.
I didn't mean for the .1% to cop out of the MMB part as much as I had no idea what the Muppet connection was, and in turn how that connected to MGoBlog. Thanks for filling me (and I'm sure several others) in.
watching it? Make you want to dance?
Anyone else see the overly-exuberant, neck-muscles-bulging, screaming in happiness clarinet member of the MMB after the game? Totally gif. worthy!
HAIL TO THE VICTORS!
No Sparty, put it back.
How do you embed youtube stuff in here?
I love muppets
This is the season that validates watching a decade of completely terrible basketball in the late 90s-late 00s. Everything is coming up Blue. About damn time.
I also can't wait until late this evening when I pour a nice celebratory drink, sit back on the couch, and wade through what I am sure is becoming an epic RCMB meltdown.
Definitely a good game to have recruits at.
What is the floor slapping about?
We are going to defeat ya!
