Reporter asked Joe Pa what happened to Kevin Newsome. Joe Pa replied "Who?"
Early Games Open Thread
needs to stop coaching. Did you hear him in the postgame interview? He didn't even know who Kevin Newsome was.
Haha, Lou Holtz: "It's a shame that the Naval Academy is overemphasizing football and putting national security at risk."
He didn't actually say that, did he? That's just annoying.
What the hell is UT's problem this season? This ISU team got demolished by OU last week.
Well, at least you have basketball, and MSU isn't your rival! No big deal.
...multiple sclerosis? If you don't, you must be a bad person.
So to celebrate your win, the first thing you do is go on a michigan blog?
The word is *their*, and I have nothing against Microsoft. MSU, on the other hand, is a mediocre team that has been fortunate to have some lucky bounces and a soft schedule. Part of me hopes that they meet Boise State in the NCG so that they can get stomped by a team that nobody even thinks is all that good. Overrated, meet underrated.
Because you guys seem really, really, REALLY bothered by that win.
So we are watching other people's games BRAH. We generally don't want you guys to win BRAH.
Did I put in enough BRAHs so you could comprehend what I was saying? I tried keeping the sentences short as well, for your convenience.
Ah yes, attacking my intelligence. I guess next you're going to tell me go go set a couch on fire, right? Hey man, I've watched several UM games this year. Believe it or not, I actually don't mind when you guys win when you're not playing MSU. I hate tOSU and ND more than you guys, believe it or not. It's really too bad because I think Brian is a pretty damn good writer and there is a TON of great breakdown here. What is unfortunate is that a lot of non-UM fans here are negatively rated just because they bring opposing viewpoints. I wish some would grow thicker skin. My UM alum friends are for the most part cool as hell. It's the Walverine nation that gives you guys a bad name.
You are because you just came on to gloat. You're too much of a coward to come on when MSU was losing, heck, didn't even have enough faith when they took the lead. Just after it was done. It's not your viewpoints; it's that you're bring a dick, and a cowardly one at that.
That's exactly what he's doing.
I hate tOSU and ND more than you guys, believe it or not.
I don't think you realize who you're talking to. ND maybe. Just maybe.
Short like the last three years conference win column?
Another obsessed one. Your team wins, and you actually take the time so sign up and spew awful trash talk on a michigan blog?
We do agree on something. 4 conference wins in three years is awful.
Yup it is, and so is 36 arrests in 2 years.
1) This is a BYE week. When not watching Michigan, most fans watch other Big Ten games.
2) We might be jealous if we thought that MSU was a great team and was flat out beating other teams. They have looked very mediocre for much of the season, and have been fortunate to be playing teams like NW and Illinois when playing so poorly. I think that they are massively overrated, but have not been exposed yet. Because of the soft schedule, they only have one game of consequence remaining. Kind of like Boise State, most people don't think that MSU is worthy of their lofty ranking, which is why they want them to lose.
3) MSU loses a ton of their starters next year, while Michigan returns the vast majority of ours. MSU fans should probably enjoy their time in the limelight, because next year will probably be very different.
I love the old "walmart wolverines" line you guys throw in there. This blog is loaded down with M alumns. Try with something less "worst school in the Big Ten" in the future.
Hey Brah, have you read this thread??? You guys ALWAYS want MSU to lose to whomever they're playing. ROTFLMAO. You're favorite teams? Anyone playing MSU and whichever community college you graduated from.
who cheers for UM to win every game, right?
Oh, right, Dantonio would rather UM lose than MSU go to the Rose Bowl. Your argument is invalid.
Coming from some guys who celebrate their team's big win by going and signing up on an opposing team's site to comment there, rather than celebrate with their fans. Who's obsessed? We're not going over there...
And I'm be more impressed if you actually had some balls, and weren't a total coward, and had chimed in when they were losing. But you were probably peeing yourself too much at that point.
There are actually quite a few Wolverine posters at tRCMB. Some take their lumps when UM loses, and some do not.
They're just as pathetic as you.
Like I said, I think Brian is actually a damn good writer and there is great breakdown here. Which is why I chose to come here for UM analysis. Some of us actually read a lot (or all) of our fellow Big Ten team sites. It's because, you know, we are fans of the game. The NFL doesn't do a ton for me other than my fantasy league and the woeful Lions. I chose to absorb NCAA info. Forgive me for coming here if it offends you so much. I actually like reading breakdowns and analysis of other Big Ten teams and what their fans have to say. Obviously, this is the place to come for UM. Is my presense really that offensive to you?
It's not your presence that is offensive, it's that you came to this thread to come and gloat after a win. There are other spartans who come here and follow this blog like GoBlogSparty, but they don't just comment on this board after a MSU win. They actually contribute something useful to the board. What have you done?
If you're going to troll, you have to at least spell check. And it'd be fair to dish out lumps, if you had been here when MSU was losing. But you obviously can dish them out, but not take them.
On their bye week? And why did you come only after MSU won? You came on to be a douche. Congrats, you succeeded.
Big win? Could you be more specific? Are you talking about Wisc, UM, NW?
and I'm still given negative points. Wow.
Probably because your first post was kind of dousche-y. As they say, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
Has it not happened, multiple times in the past, that UM fans have routinely said that MSU is "not a rival"? Obviously tOSU is your big game every year, I'm sure as hell not going to argue that. I would never expect MSU to be on the level that tOSU is for UM, rivalry-wise. Is that true, or not - that there have been those that have said that MSU is "not a rival"?
Only an idiot would say that MSU isn't a rival, and there are a few of them around here. I think most of us dislike watching MSU win because of people like you that just gloat. Many apologies for the people that may have traipsed over to the RCMB in the past to do the same, but there's really no reason for it.
So no need to apologize. (But I appreciate the sentiment) Sure, there are trolls, but there are other guys who are actually good posters and contribute to the discussions. I actually really enjoy seeing opposing viewpoints. I might have been a bit of a jerk with my initial post, but I had a hard time resisting after seeing a lot of the "worst 8-0 team in the history of the game", "luckiest team ever", etc. Stuff like that is fairly silly.
Or 5 or 10, before you start to talk smack. Earn your cred that you're a reasonable poster, then you can push the envelope. But coming in right after an MSU win? Troll move.
Silly, maybe, but that's going to happen because it's a Michigan board. I spend a little bit of time on the RCMB every once in a while just to see what's going on, and you have to admit that if someone dropped in there from MGoBlog and did this it wouldn't be received very well (especially a few years ago when the situation was the opposite of how it is now).
All it takes is two minutes of poking around the RCMB to see why you're all here, and it sure isn't to discuss anything. Forgive us for responding with negs. They actually work pretty well for weeding out folks whose only reason for being here is to be as annoying as possible.
I'm sure some of the backlash is annoyance with seeing MSU win while UM has struggled the past two weeks, but the fact remains that this board supports opposing fans (we have a couple of prominent ND and OSU fans) who bring legitimate insight and thought to the discussions. I know that there are UM trolls at the RCMB and that is definitely not acceptable, but most of the MSU posters here come with an attitude, take some low-brow pot shots, and then are surprised when they are negged/banned.
Forb, who cares lol. I post on political boards, rcmb, and now here. Points? pffft. I'm here for the fun and friendly banter.
And bring some fun. Because otherwise you won't be on this board when you get banned.
Try doing something that doesn't make you sound like an ass. That usually works.
LSU v AU but I'm not sure I can stomach the SEC/Cam Newton trolling. They have already insinuated that Cam is the best AU player ever, even better than Bo Jackson. Guh, it's like Tebow 2.0 (which they also said).
Time to clean up the trash in here.
Whats the matter, is a little friendly banter really that damaging to your ego? The thread is littered with anti MSU rhetoric. That's fine, it should be. Most people here don't like MSU. Understandable. You act like people are flaming threads with legitimate debate going on with off topic junk.
I'm just confused as to why you're here in the first place.
No, we're just trying to weed out the really bad grammar. And the small minds behind it.
But it perfectly illustrates your losing academic record.
Who am I supposed to root for, Iowa or Wisconsin?
I have a really hard time watching a game without taking a side, but I can't find a good reason to go either way with this one.
Jordan Jefferson is so useless
Why doesn't Miles just start Lee full time instead of switching QB's at whim
And I'm sure your luck will hold up next year, right?
Perennial mediocre teams will be perennial mediocre teams, and that will always be Michigan State.

Not an insignificant number of players, is it? Yes, a number of skill guys return, but if the big uglies regress, so does the rest of the team. MSU may have some talent waiting behind the current starters, but if they were better players then they would be starting. Some may improve during the offseason, but others may not. All things being equal, returning starters > new guys stepping up. It is one thing to have a young player displace a starter by outperforming him, but it is something else to be forced to replace former starters. That is why Michigan fans are so excited to see a very young team that is only a few mistakes away from being a very good team.
Gotcha. A ton of the guys that have led you to your 8-0 season are leaving, but that is a good thing because there are better guys behind them. Yeah, all of the top coaches make sure to keep the best players on the bench.
Talent is not the same thing as experience. MSU is not winning because they have played outstanding football, but rather they have limited their mistakes while other teams have made mistakes. Replacing a ton of guys might not affect their talent level, but it does affect the experience level.
My eyes are bleeding after reading some of these troll comments. Where is Irish these days? I always enjoyed his insight and comments.
plus I'm an alum as I graduated from UM-Flint in 1999 and Im DAMN proud of it. I've lurked here a long time and NEVER seen trolls like today. State trolls to boot. You guys shouldn't take the bate. Every time they say anything I just remind them of the all time record between the two 'schools'. I ran into this loser with a State hat earlier today and he was puffing his chest out and talking trash. I told him: "Enjoy it while you can, because UM is like OLD MONEY and fine wine and state is a lame attempt at new money and like dandelion wine." He walked away and laughed as most of the people did around that heard it. IF he only knew that they were all laughing at him.....what pises me off about moo U is that they're the red headed step child that wants to belong but never will. Anyway, I had to get that off my chest and look forward to posting here in the future. We have to stick together because when sparty isn't burning couches, he's talking trash and I for one will fight fire with fire......no pun intended. Go BLUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
is actually a Mod at RCMB.
I figured I'd go over and checkout what prompted all this and here is the thread: http://www.spartantailgate.com/forums/msu-red-cedar-message-board/472363-hilarious-meltdown-mgoblog-over-nw-win.html
We'd never have a "let's all go over and troll RCMB" thread. They would.
All the more pathetic. But I really doubt you spent your evening splitting time between the Wisonsin boards and Iowa boards and Illinois boards too. Who's obsessed?
But since you've proven that's basically who you are, I can see why that wouldn't be a good reason.
The better question is, why would you? Is your life so horrible, so bereft of pleasure, with no friends, or anything better to do, the only way you can get your jollies is to come here and do this?
And I don't think you know the meaning of the word "hypocritical". I don't blame you, your education is obviously lacking. But for it to be hypocritical, I would have to be going over the RCMB and posting dozens of posts being a complete dick....then calling you out for it. That would be hypocritical. Since I spend my time on my team's blog, and don't care what you're saying over at your place, it's not the least bit hypocritical. But then, I don't think you're hypocritical either. Just a douche with no life.
Cam Newton is insane
Lol Iowa in danger of losing
because Ferentz had a senior moment and burnt his last timeout prematurely. Sure hope Iowa has enough left in the tank for MooU. They should, as I fully expect their dline to dominate moou's crappy oline. Just a matter of time before their exposed.
