This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.

I am only motivated by people who have no opinion about me.
the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
but I thought that draft was supposed to be incredibly loaded?
The nice thing about being from out of state and then going back to NYC after you graduate is you don't work with any MSU or OSU grads/fans and have none in your family.
If you'd like fries with that?

We're not arrogant, we're just better.
Hey Hey Hey ... you need to specify which SUNY schools. There are a good number of SUNY schools that are great institutions, and a few that can be considered Top 15 public institutions.
"It would be a travesty, it would be ridiculous to all of a sudden come back and get the feeling back, get the health back, feel good again and then all of a sudden go throw some other colors on my shirt and go coach."
Stoney Brook and Binghamton excluded
It's spelled "Stony".
And as far as liberal arts schools go, Geneseo is considered a "public ivy", and New Paltz is quite strong. Fredonia is very good if you're going into the performing arts.
Your regional bias is pinned to the right. I've never heard of any of those places.
Yeah, not to hate on your passion, but only Binghamton and Stony Brook would be considering "big name" SUNY schools nationally. Some of the smaller SUNY's have high-ranked programs, but those first two are the major ones in my experience. That said, they are good schools, but probably on the level of the directional schools in MI, so "public Ivies."
I think you got the 1 and the 5 in the wrong order there.
don't forget about Hunter grads!!
All amounts of win with this comment - I constantly see UM fans in NYC, but the number of OSU and MSU grads I've seen could be counted on two hands.
For me, the hatred was truly born after Desmond was tripped at the end of the 1990 game. It was bad enough to have the refs blow an obvious pass interference call after Michigan made a great comeback and Moeller went for 2 to preserve Michigan's shot at a national title.
The worst part was hearing the MSU fans and their media enablers rationalize why the result of that game was just:
Whenever Sparty gets screwed by a bad call, I like to recite these same bullshit rationalizations to the Spartan faithful and watch their heads explode.
Against us the only one I can think of was the pylon against us, and they won! In addition to 90 and 01, you can throw in the "yard short 1st down" in 95.
Since I've been following Michigan (~1980), we've never won a football game against MSU thanks to a dramatic bullshit call.
They've been screwed a few times in the NCAA basketball tournament, but I'm pretty sure those pre-dated the 1990 MSU-Michigan football game (Kansas in 1986, GaTech in 1990).
It's actually more effective to parrot their excuses when Sparty didn't get obviously screwed or the situation is not as dramatic as a blown call with 7 seconds left that cost a team its #1 ranking.
I am the #5 child out of 6(4 females, 2 males). Two of my family members are State Alumns, the eldest and my brother. Everyone else in the family for some stupid ass reason cheers for state, except ME. My family is the most important thing to me, however, I don't talk to them during this week or on game day.
Remember Who You Are!
That's pretty bad. The whole side of my mom's family are Ohio State fans... ugh, what a rough couple of years it has been (especially since all I can remember is losing to OSU).
to hate "retards"? I dont know but I certainly do not think of MSU as a rivalry. It is a State of Michigan rivalry but not a University of Michigan rivalry.
We dont compete for the same talant: only Se'Von Pittman picked MSU over us IIRC. He didnt have the grades for us and now is not on the MSU roster either. So that cannot be considered competition.
According to USNWR we rate higher in every single education category: yes we even rank higher in our education department. The only program that MSU ranks higher is Veterinary Sciences......because we dont have one.
According to "hot chicks on campus.com" Michigan women rate hotter than MSU. Thats right, I said it, it had to be said. Our band is ranked higher than theirs by a long shot too.
So where is the rivalry I ask??? It is fun beating down lil brother. I even had come backs during the past 3-year debacle. I was still able to defend our honor without resorting to "wait until..........".
From the Red Cedar Message Board: "God hates us." Yes He does Lil Bro, yes he does. Everyone hates you.
Uncalled for. Very poor choice of words. There is no need to compare people that obviously do not suffer from serious mental diseases to those that do. Not necessary to go there, ever.
By saying they have a mental disease.
Central Ohio is we are more likely to see these Spartans
or perhaps these Spartans
or maybe these spartans
or even these Spartans
and most definintely this spartan
But very few MSU Spartans!
Sorry guys, no Sparty Hate stories from me.
It's tough being Blue in Columbus!!!
My sister, a Sparty, called and texted me constantly during the 2004 game. She kept asking "What's the score" and "How's the game."
Hours later, Braylon-fest complete, I simply smiled and never called/texted her back. It's what separates us.
This year at the Notre Dame game, I had the unpleasant fortune of sitting next to the most obnoxious Sparty wearing his Sparty shirt and talking shit then entire game. Despite me telling him directly to his face "Dude, I do not want to sit here for the next 3 hours watching Michigan play Notre Dame while some fat ass, classless, obnoxious Spartan piece of shit runs his F'n mouth", he simply would not STFU. All night long I had to listen to every Denard, Hoke, RR, Brandon meme every uttered. Finally, after the catch, I simply smiled, patted him on the shoulder and said, "Drive home safely."
I had surgery on my knee my senior year. The doctor gave me a local anesthetic and wheeled me into the operating room. He starts messing around with my knee and I said, "Hey, I can feel your cold hands." He was a little surprised and said "ok, we'll knock you out with the gas. Breath deep and count back from 10." I start counting "10, 9, 8, STATE SUCKS, zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. When I woke up the doctor was quite amused at my obvious hatred for all things Sparty.
Are you actually saying a Spartan fan got tickets to the ND game and spent it making fun of Michigan? I can't ever imagine paying $100 to go to a MSU game where they weren't playing Michigan, and not because their non-Michigan tickets don't break $50.
That's what I'm saying.
During his endless blathering he told me he A) played for Michigan State and B) attended Michigan Law School. To which I replied, "Bullshit, you lying sack of puke." His pudgy ass couldn't walk onto my JV squad.
This wasn't quite personal, since it was non-verbal and took place through car windows, but some may appreciate the story. It's been a long time and some of the details are murky.
During the summer before my senior year (UMich) I was visiting a friend (with some other friends) in one of Metro Detroit's upper-end suburbs. She was just a bit of a princess and had a car (5-series BMW, IIRC) to match.
We drove to a nearby theater to catch a movie. At a stoplight along Telegraph we pulled alongside some POS car with an MSU window sticker and at least one bumper sticker. (My friend's car had a window sticker and a plate holder. Aside: Haven't seen window stickers as much as in past years ...) I'm pretty sure each car could see the colors of the other.
Anyway, we eyeballed each other and the all-around chasm between the two cars was immediately apparent. The Sparty types had this "Damn, we suck!" look on their faces. Pretty funny.
Before the MSU game last season, I was tailgating at a neighbor's house with a mix of both sides. I have a lot of friends who attend MSU and we were all having a great time.
This fat, obnoxious, drunken State fan got in my face and started trying to shove me out of the house because he didn't know me. I was friends with one of the people who lived there and this guy came in off the street.
After calmly asking him to leave and trying to have his friends get control, the fat guy rushed at me. Now, I was an all-state middle linebacker who made the first round of cuts at UM (I know, cool story bro), so I didn't take this attempt kindly. I side-stepped the guy and threw him off of the porch on his fat, stubbly face.
He and his friends left after that. COME AT ME BRO
Someone told me that each equation I included in the book would halve the sales.

If I can do it, imagine what you can be!
Almost the exact same thing happened to a friend of mine many many moons ago - almost creepily to the last detail (although he was not a LB). Is this what they teach in their hospitality program?

I have been working abroad in Colombia and the Philippines for two years since I graduated, and while I have come across successful Michigan grads everywhere I go, I have met only one MSU grad - at a sports bar in Medellin, Colombia. As we started talking, he drunkenly admitted that he couldn't find work or women in the States and was trying to find a prostitute to marry and bring back to East Lansing. I'm not saying this is indicative of all MSU grads (or Colombian women, for that matter), but I am saying...it makes you think.
If there are any other Michigan fans in Manila who want to watch the game - there will be alums at my place watching MSU getting manhandled.
that kind of depressed me
im going to msu this weekend to chill with msu cousin and party, im a hs student so this is big deal. He told me if I wore michigan gear he wouldnt talk to me or bring me to parties, dead serious. So he qualifies as a douche, i might just wear my vintage bright maize 1981 Rose Bowl sweater with a white t under to piss him off
the Sparties sporting their yellowing, quarter-century old Rose Bowl shirts.
Here's a story. Its pretty much the reason I go by "mgobleu" around here, actually.
It's 2007, after Henne hits Manningham in the 4th to smack down lil' bro. My wife and I head to Applebees for some late dinner and some drinks. Our waiter was an unwashed bro in a sparty hat. Graciously, we decide not to bring up the game unless he mentions it, which he inevitably does. I don't trust him not to spit in my food, so I just tell him, "Yeah, too bad for sparty. But it was a good game though..." He disagrees. He says that he's a student, and he thought "It sucked."
Besides this small interaction, everything is fine until my salad comes, on which I ordered ranch dressing. He drops it on the table and tells me that he took the liberty of changing my ranch to "go-bleu cheese". Now, I like bleu cheese, but not at applebees. Nor did I order it, dammit, and there is so much of the crap on it that hardly any lettuce is visible. I mean, its practically the biggest freaking pile of dressing I've ever seen. Still, I'm in a good mood, and slow to anger. Thinking this is a joke, and soon he'll bring my real salad, I just set it aside and wait for the rest of my meal, which is delivered by a different waitress. She asks what's up with my salad and if she can take the plate. I smile, tell her no, and "I'm still working on it."
Eventually, after the rest of the meal is delivered and eaten without a hitch, then sparty comes to drop off the check. He smugly asks, "Aww, you didn't like your go-bleu cheese?" I say in return in the most condescening tone I can muster, "Uh, no. But I'll tell you what. The bill comes to what, 32 bucks? I've got 2 20's. I don't really want to give you a tip, but since you're a state student, you're gonna need it a lot more than me." Then I buried the cash in the pool of dressing, flipped the plate over on the table, and patted him on the back as we left, while he stood staring at the mess.
This is wonderful, sir.
You're my hero
+10,000 to you, well played sir

Thanks. I almost felt a little bit dickish after the fact, given he was obviously a freshman. Plus my wife gave me crap because she thought I should've told the manager and gotten our meal for free, but I thought it was worth the money. I just couldn't believe he expected me to sit there and take it.
So your response was to create more work for the busboy?
I believe that was another one of those brilliant points that my wife brought up while we were driving home. I've never worked in the service industry, so unfortunately I didn't think that far ahead.
the busboy was probably a Spartan too.

Douchey and dumb.
COYS and lets go Detroit FC!
you could have just spoken to a manager or filed a complaint due to his unprofessional behavior while tipping low. stay classy tho bro.
Yeah, but some times you've gotta have some fun, especially when it comes to Sparty.
File a complaint? How about he just solves the problem himself... Nobody likes a tattle tail and it wasn't a huge deal in the end anyway.
Up until the part where you retaliated with a very Sparty-like move. I'm sure it felt good when you did it, but it really makes you look just as douchey as your waiter, if not moreso. Had you complained to the manager, getting a free salad in teh process, and not left a tip for such douchiness by the waiter, it would be different...that's what I would have done.
Nevertheless, it is definitely a good story.
I'm not a lunatic. Seriously, i'm not.
Ok, maybe just a little bit.
