Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
The use of there instead of their tipped me off, although MGoBloggers are known to make that mistake.
I made two typo. Do a search on their and I have like 10 other places where I used it correctly. I did it right after I woke up so they are both early on, and later on everything else is correct.
Just admit it. You are either fucking retarded or you do not care about grammar on a message board.
Either one is an acceptable answer.
I make grammatical errors all the time. However, I don't come back to try to justify the mistake by making another comment with more grammatical errors. I admit that I type like a retard from time to time and take the negbanging in stride.
Actually I was saying "Do a search on [the word] their" not "Do a search on [the post]".
I make grammatical errors all the time as well. And I see them all over this board, but I don't correct them because I realize that people make the mistakes. I just get pissed off when someone insinuates that I am somehow less intelligent than they are because I made a mistake in 2 spots but got it right in 10-15 others.
Sorry that was kind of a dick comment on my part.
to try and refrain from the use of the "r-word" on this board?
Maybe if you called him a "leotard," a "mustard," or a "custard," everyone would know what you meant, but the board wouldn't have such an ugly word on it.
I made two typo
Sorry........this comment made me spill my coffee.
I am not bad at grammar cause I made two typo!!!!
You also should not talk like you write. You know like what I mean.
Woo! Soylent green for everyone!
some green points?
I thought I told you to put him on the back porch and leave him tied up today. He keeps craping on the carpet.
Let's worry about ND before MSU. And even Western for that matter. We could be 2-2 going to play in EL. I think Iowa, Illinois, and Minnesota could be better (depends on their schedules-I haven't looked at them). MSU could lose at Wisconsin. They could go anywhere from 7-5 to 10-2.
I know. I was focusing more on MSU in this than M.
I just get tired of people predicting the season for us, so I thought I would mix it up a little.
I +1'd ya for this. MSU should be taken seriously.
I live in (midwestern state known for Corn) that for years only treated (state known for a panhandle. A real panhandle) as its only rival, while others began to circle (Corn state) in red.
Well, before long, the little guys who decided to go after (Corn) began beating them with, if not an alrming frequency, then at least more frequency than normal. In fact, teams that weren't beating (corn) in like 30 years all the sudden were beating them like every other year.
MSU is on the improve, and whether we want to sit back and chortle and say "they need to beat us 38 times in a row to tie and they need to go and lose 12 of 16 Rose Bowls before I take them seriously"--we live in a different, instant results world now--and if MSU beats UM this year, with all the bullshit of the last year--well, I just don't think you can overemphsize THIS game THIS year.
The ND and MSU games are, IMO, very winnable of the Big Four this season, even with MSU on the road. UM needs to take those two down this year.
Clearly if the mgodiarists start looking ahead to other opponents we'll surely cost the team a win or two against Western or ND.
Always a ton of hype before the season starts followed by letdown....
My point was that they are set up for an easy schedule, their defense should be good the strong point of the team, and as long as their offense competent, they should be able to pull out a pretty good season.
Please people, no more stuff on MSU. We only talk about Michigan. I don't care anything about MSU's football team. We'll scout them the week we play them. Until then, please I'm asking for no more on MSU.
I pretty much stole your post without reading it. +1 to you sir.
Also, glad to see there is another Blue fan out in West Texas.
CMU is much tougher than EMU. MSU could easily lose that game.
They can definitally lose that game, Being a CMU student since Dan L. was a freshman I have seen what this offense can do and they are probably BCS buster good on that side of the ball. However the D is epicly bad. They allowed a woefull Eastern team to throw somewhere around 80 times and let up 50 some odd points. Sparty better not be sleeping on CMU though, central has won the last 2 times they played in EL.
Not sure what you're thinking, but MSU has won the last four straight against CMU in EL, with the last win coming in 2004.
Sorry i jumped the gun a bit. I knew they one 2 straight in the 90's, should have done some reserch my bad.
for one, I appreciate the breakdown of what returns at each position
I hope your right about MSU losing to ND.
Maybe I'm wrong but it seems like MSU plays their best and hits their hardest against ND.
Could someone who has more time and knowledge than me please write something about the OSU game (or anyone else besides MSU)? Seriously, I think we've all given state much more attention than they deserve.
I plan on doing these for a few more opponents with OSU being last. This is just the one that sparked the idea so I went with it.
I don't know about MSU winning the last four straight against CMU, aren't the Chips on a winning streak against State?
And yes, I agree: no more on Sparty. I've heard enough from State people about how "we're obsessed with them now." Please let that not be the case.
They need to win the Big Ten/go to the Rose Bowl another 10-15 times before they deserve any credibility.
No. MSU and CMU have played a total of 6 times. MSU has won the last 4 games. It has been awhile since CMU beat MSU.
MSU versus CMU all in East Lansing
1991 CMU wins 20-3
1992 CMU wins 24-20
1993 MSU wins 48-34
1998 MSU wins 38-7
2001 MSU wins 35-21
2004 MSU wins 24-7
Why you givin little bro the time of day? Just cuz they beated us once in a 1000 years. We the best. Tate is gonna win the hisman. State ain't got ringer and now they suck. The spread option is the best option. RR rulz! Were gonna win 10 games this year and 13 next. Natinal champs!
Seems a bit trollish.
You forgot a few o's and e's in that shitty post. For that, I give you -1.
I believe "skunk bear" is douche for wolverine. I smell troll.
"Skunk bear" is commonly used in place of "wolverine" derogatorily by MSU fans. It originates from slang for the actual animal because of an odor it gives off from glands.
trolling troll is trolling.
You, sir, cannot spell. Though I highly doubt you are a legitimate "skunk bear" fan, if you are you have to be stupid to not be willing to analyze any of Michigan's opponents, Sparty included. It's a well-thought out, unbiased post.
Thank you for interviewing for the troll position at MGoBlog. Unfortunately your qualifications do not quite match our trolling needs at this time. We here at MGoBlog strive to provide the highest quality commenting to reflect the caliber of the front page material. Our standards for trolls are no exception. While McFarlin left some pretty big shoes to fill, it remains that your attempt to troll was...well...not good enough.
Best of luck on your future endeavors.
of the day.
I like fishin and will be happy to troll with you. Just give me a chance. I'll quit my bridge card fraud gig and work for you. I have credanceials. I was in this sweet ad for the Wunderboner. Seriously, go to youtube and check out Wunderboner. That's me in the M hat. Go blue or go blow. Mt. Dew and recitin the all-time winningest record is awesome. Little bother is a gay cow college. They will proly go 2-10 and be worser than us last year. Cows can't stop Taters and we'll just tip them faggy cows over. AA is skunk bear city and EL is a dumb name for a girl.
SKUNK BEARS FOREVER!
Sparty Troll: NOT GOOD ENOUGH
I noticed that skunkbear currently has -22 mgopoints. Is someone automatically booted off the board if they reach a certain number of negative points? So far, -22 is the lowest I've seen, but I haven't been posting here very long.
8-4 (5-3) = best case scenario for sparty this year
Actually, best case scenario would be 13-0(8-0). That's not going to happen though.
Why wouldn't you guys be worried about MSU. Ohio State is your number one rival, got it. But MSU is the biggest threat to keeping Mich from being a top team again. I know you don't think it can happen but there were times when USC was fighting for bowl games and look at Nebraska.
Also I know you guys think because MSU lost Ringer and Hoyer that they will be terrible on the O but heres a fact for you. MSU was 9th in the Big Ten in Rushing last season and Hoyer didn't even pass for 10 TD's last season. QB will be a major upgrade this year and RB is not a position where just one player plays, its more like WR then QB. MSU boasts alot more depth then they did a year ago.
You believe the MSU will lose to ND but, they have owned them in South Bend. You believe the Wolverines will beat ND but they have a VERY good secondary and experienced LB corp. Those are the reasons you state that MSU may win. They also have the ability to "blow anyone out of the water" with a junior QB of 20+ starts and the nation's best receiving corp (Sporting News). Please tell me why you think we will win. The back who was successful (McGuffie) last year against ND is no longer here. I'm a realist, are you just hoping or can U-M control the ball for 30 + minutes and keep the defense off the field. Can we catch a punt or kickoff yet? Punting the ball 50 yds after 3 & out is not an offense. I need to see U-M smash the Broncos before I count any wins.
I can easily see them being 2-2 heading into the Michigan game. Bielema is on the hot seat, and they have a loss to avenge from last year.
msu has beat ND @ ND pretty handily the last couple years but I see things clicking for ND this time around.
That, and I would love to see the Freep headlines after they go 2-3. I might actually buy a paper.
is a distinct possibility. Our recent history at Camp Randall is not so good. QB competence will be key for them.
Notre Dame offers a great test for our secondary, but I'm not so sure their running game will be enough to respect. Still, it's far from the automatic win many MSU fans assume. Keeping the South Bend streak alive would be amazing.
Obviously I don't care for either MSU or UM, but this: "Mark Dantonio was the DC for OSU when they won their NC (only after McGahee blew out his knee). He is going to ride his defense this year for his record." seems like really ridiculous criticism of Dantonio. Whatever you think of him (I think he's a great defensive guy, but perhaps not such a great head coach), it's hard to argue that OSU only beat Miami (yes, that Miami) because of an injury. I'm happy to criticize Dantonio for being mouthy or for a lack of accountability or discipline (all of which is true). I think you've chosen, however, the weakest criticism possible.
In addition, I doubt MSU's defense improves over last year's D. They've got a couple decent LBs, but otherwise they're not much to write home about. I suspect their offense, however, will improve without having to rely upon Ringer. They've shown the willingness and ability to throw; I doubt they regress in terms of pure point and yardage volume.
I just don't think Dantonio will ever really have the talent at State to "ride his defense to success". The only way they're going to compete in the Big Ten is the odd year when they have an up tick in both offensive and defensive talent. They're never going to dominate in either category (warning: assumption here based upon historical recruiting).
I was actually giving him credit for being the defensive coordinator of a team that had a perfect season and won the NC. The side note was my opinion that I still think that Miami was a better team that year and lost a close game because their star RB suffered a near-career-ending injury late in the game. It was intended to be more of a metaphorical slap in the face to OSU than Dantonio.
