we just punched sparty right in the stomach!!
chance of bowl: 13.6%
Well, that's one streak of days stretching into the thousands down. Bonus for those five gloating meatheads ESPN showed at every opportunity: the guys who painted "1" on their chest don't have to change anything to be accurate tomorrow as long as they sit separately. The "8" guy will have to sit at home and cry for a week.
And you can't have one without the other…

It's been 11 months since State beat us in hoops...
Suck it, Sparty.
Zack Novak is a beast. D-Mo was excellent. And great D all around.
It was only a matter of time before one broke through. Now the monkey is off our back and we can get back to winning with another one on Sunday.
Go Blue and Fuck Yeah!
Love seeing the Muppets!
Wonder if they still want to fire Beilein?
MWBB gets ranked? How many more ranked teams do they need to beat?
6 -- 2 in the Big Ten is impressive.
110 days since MSU has beaten Michigan!
I had forgotten. Hopefully this is not an illusion. I would like my arrogance back, please.
I know. I kept waiting for Sparty to come back at the end. Still not sure if I can emerge from my hiding place. Great job by the team. Special mention to Novak for his best impression of Jimmer Fredette in the 1st half.
How awesome is it that Michigan State is basically a fringe bubble team right now?
Not awesome at all. Don't be like them. I want them to be good so that when we beat them it means more. Go Blue!
Hey Sparty ! Welcome back to "little Brother" status !!! Wheeeeeee !
Go Blue !
Time to start our own count! Way to go boys!
Yea I can't wait to have a 3,200 day count and be called classless for it.
Most of the time I'd just play it off with Sparty Nooooo! but these bitches really need to be reminded of their place this time.
I'm all like 100% pure giddy-up.
I loves me some MUPPETS! Novak was absolutely ridiculous tonight. Nice to see Stu come through in the clutch with a smooth 3 pointer. GO BLUE!
Nice one Brian.
and celebrating for the first time in a far too long of a time!
Loved that. The Sparties looked like a car had run over their puppy.
My kids were laughing out loud at the shots of the dejected sparty fans. Somehow that made it even funnier.
champagne baby. champagne.
The "streak" nonsense was ridiculous and so was ESPN playing it up (Wow, you won three games against crappy Michigan football teams after being our bitch forever!). On the other hand, winning for the first time in East Lansing in b-ball since, well, since before I can remember...priceless.
I was 11.
I guess I couldn't remember since, as an out-of-stater who came to UM in fall 2000, I've actually never seen it happen.
Wooooooo! Here's to many more.
like its 1997. Great year. We beat MSU at Breslin, I graduated from U of M (good but sad at the same time) and our football team had a pretty good year too.
Better result. It's been a good two weeks.
from Brian's screen capture that it says 11/3/7 instead of 11/3/07? Well done ESPN. Any Sparty. Well done all around. GO BLUE!
Didn't have to play perfect, maybe sparty will join us in watching the NCAA tourny this year
With a little luck they can watch us I the tourney.
No sparty love from this Sooner. MSU, the only school my dad would not let me go to, and we lived in Ohio.
And only 2 days until your hockey team loses to Michigan...again!
Next up the hockey team. They're next up to keep sparty down.
wins are always tough to come by on the road in the Big Ten. One of the most rewarding conference wins in recent memory. It may not have lasting impact, but in the moment it is sweet.
Shutting Sparty fans up for a while is a welcome lasting impact.
Damn straight. There are going to be some happy, happy wolverines at work tomorrow (Friday!)
Please keep Lil Bro comments to yourself this time Mike Hart. kthxbai
the guy in the middle definitely has a pierced nip
I don't know if it's the same guy, but I've seen multiple Sparties with pierced nips over the last year or so on TV for UM-MSU games. So classy--and so Sparty.
lol buddy i was standing right next to him... no nip ring. but it looks like it..
Good win..has to happen once ever ten years or so.
losing to Northwestern at the Breslin. This was couch burnworthy.
Something about Sparty, karma, bitches.... hell it's incomprehensible.
their front row seats at
You have to be attractive and/or powerfully built to make it on that show. Team 1,181 did have the man-slut part down cold, though.
I love me some Muppet celebration!!
I might have to make some business calls in the lesser Lansing area tomorrow, with my M license plate in my Blue Trailblazer with Maize pinstripe, while sporting my 1987 Big 10/Rose Bowl ring.
Can I get a hell yeah?
