Alright, you know security is going to be on the lookout for ski masks a week from Tuesday. And lets face it--it does pose a security threat with anonimity and all. The best way to thwart their efforts is to bring more than one...I mean they're a dollar store item right? Obviously, the best place to smuggle is your undershorts...who is going to pat you down there? Can you say lawsuit?
Best way to smuggle in a ski mask
I've seen Yellow man at pretty much every game. Anonymity wasn't an issue with him. You can probably just put it in your pocket.
Haha saw him on TV today, sweet outfit. Stupid question slash observation, he takes off the mask during actual game time right? Like obviously during TV timeouts he puts it on, but otherwise why would he even bother being at the games?
going on right now. Not to mention the signs like
which I am sure we will see and have heard some talk about.
MSU fans are so classless and pathetic, not to mention as great as their fans supposedly are they sure do copy a lot of stuff from our fans so sticking it to them would be nice.
If ski mask outfits and chants are the theme of the night, I guess I will hold judgment until after it happens.
I'd be totally down for a "SKI MASK U" or "Where's your ski masks? *clap clap clapclapclap*" chant
If the Maize Rage section all went in with ski masks, they would try to avoid showing it on TV because they wouldn't want to explain it to the viewing public. It would be a lot of fun listening to the announcers trying to explain why without stepping on any green and white toes.
I'd say, in your pants.
... are going to be awkward when MSU fans 'storm the court'
I lose faith in humanity every time I look at that website.
what a sad, sad group of people.
My IQ dropped a couple of points.
EDIT: And just a quick question, if they are so superior to us, why would they want to rush the court against an underdog? I thought their program was above that. Guess not.
if, by next Sunday, there is a single ski mask still available for sale anywhere in Washtenaw County.
It's Michigan in late January. Just wear them in.
I wouldn't recommend wearing something on your face thats been in your underwear.
Obligatory "Not that there's anything wrong with that."
but I thought the ski mask theory was disproved by the ELPD. I would prefer makeup for black eyes, cuts, knocked out teeth, ect with shirts that say Victim of Sparty FB or something of the sort. Maybe MSU student massacre with the date on it.
might get a few laughs. Again, college student sections have crossed lines from time to time. Not sure where the line is here because you know something/many things are going to happen.
Dantonio: "See, I can reinstate them because the ELPD said they didn't wear ski masks."
You don't have to be precise when you're mocking 14 football players attacking an engineering fraterity.
Whenever I think of just what this attack was, I always think the best mocking would be to hold of signs asking how to join the Alpha Betas.
Here is the link to the MSU student newspaper which suggests some of the players were wearing ski masks. (Before damage control went into high gear). http://www.statenews.com/index.php/article/2009/11/police_mum_regarding_...
Can you point to the source that proves they were not? The FOI on the police report probably wont be processed for years so...bottom line...can you be sued for libel for wearing a ski mask? Probably not. Me thinks the lady doth protest too much.
What about some facepaint with writing like "MSU Fan Gear" or something similar?
Or,we could take the high road and wear maize and blue to cheer for Bielien's boys.
Whether there were ski masks or not, I don't see how this incident impacts the UofM - MSU Basketball game at all.
Izzo runs his program with respect and integrity - modeling it after Bo Schembechler's Michigan program. His players were not involved in the Fracas at Rather Hall.
Plus, it would look kind of stupid for us to wear ski masks and then get pounded by the Spartans at home, which is very possible given the strength of their team and the "Jekyll and Hyde" nature of our team.
Let's keep it to Maize and Blue guys.
Forget the taunting with Ski Masks.
I agree. Izzo's the only good guy that coaches for State. Comes with being a YOOPER.
If a Sparty player commits a foul or misses a free throw:
"He deserves a second chance!"
High road schmigh road, I say ski masks all around! You can't honestly think that if the roles were reversed that sparty wouldn't do the same thing.
If we start to pattern our behavior around Sparty we are in a ton of trouble.
But class is not one of them. If they can get away with wearing camo and stupid sunglasses(which REALLY pisses off guys who actually served) I really dont think this compares.
Do you want them to stop chanting "you suck" and "it's all your fault" too?
Ski mask idea is incredibly stupid and juvenile. Just be loud and cheer the team on to a sweet victory.
Mask is a good idea in case of a loss . They have a very good well coached team, They pummeled Illinois Saturday. It is entirely possible by the 30 of the month we will have lost to them in Football. four times in hockey and hoops on our court. We may need them to hide our shame.
it's sad when members of the RCMB have to create accounts just to pose as UM fans for stupid posts like this.
Maybe we could rush the floor with our masks on.
Show those KSU fans how it's done when you win a big game.
I mean seriously they beat the #1 Team in the country and stayed off the floor, isn't that some kind of infraction?
Couple of things...
If you're looking for a place to smuggle a ski mask, how about on your head, as a hat. Are hats illegal in MI in the dead of winter? Although the cro*ch idea was an instant classic.
Also, I'm confused about Ski Mask University (SMU) - please, someone explain that to me.
And even though the ski mask incident turned out to be false, it was the football team who allegedly did it - not the basketball team. It would be the equivalent of the Student section at Spartan Stadium chanting "NIT" - it's completely irrelevant.
Lastly, if Tom Izzo catches wind of this idea, look out. Please remember this game is televised. Is a 35 point beat down what this program needs right now?
has garnered 206 responses compared to the 33 on the original post (this one). the fact RCMB members such as yourself and the one above feel the need to post on it posing as UM fans... it reminds me of a certain phrase regarding siblings and inferiority complexes.
Posing as a UM fan? Where? And I'm the oldest of three and a graduate of MSU - so I wouldn't know anything about inferiority complexes.
Beat us at something, anything, and maybe the complex will become something more than a humerous tag created by those who came well before you.
Course, when you're Sparty, football history begins in 2008, so I suppose from that perspective you TOTALLY RULE THIS STATE.
UMs record(s) against MSU have been well in place except for this year's Sophomore class
but keep telling yourself that MSU has developed a decade of greatness over UM
How about this for inferiority...
Thats UM's record against MSU. Let me ask a question. When is the last time MSU actually beat UM 2 times in a row previous to the last 2 years? The late 60's! So don't get used to it because it took 2 of the worst UM teams ever for MSU to do it again. UM has dominated this rivalry over the past 40 years. Longest MSU win streak? 4 years. UM had a 6 game streak just this decade alone. The MSU win streak will end and end soon.
