national champs baby
Patrick Hruby is doing God's work.
first comment: "EVERY ATHLETE HAS ASPIRATIONS OF WINNING AND WE HAVE OUR FAVORITES BUT IT IS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO OTHER STUDENTS ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS, TOO!"
stupid Pistons and their refusal to tank properly
rundown of Michigan's riser
needs moar usage
so much for that
This list is completely arbitrary and not a genuine analysis of the relative merits of state fossils.
will be michigan's highest pick in a while
money has to go somewhere
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?
If you're gonna go please be in the first round.
another delightful side effect of a 14 team conference
I would care. I would care a lot. I would hate it if we stopped playing. Sorry, I can't join in the Michigan Arrogance thing here. It's fun to dismiss Sparty because it pisses them off, but still, you have to play that game. You have to.
I mean, do you really want the rivalry to be defined only by basketball?

if we play EMU, WMU or CMU. Why do I care if they play Moo U? I know they are in our division but if they went to the Big East, I would care little.
They are not our rival. Nuff said.
From the Red Cedar Message Board: "God hates us." Yes He does Lil Bro, yes he does. Everyone hates you.
It's OK to have more than one rival. Right know State owns Michigan in football. It sucks balls losing to them 4 times in a row. It's a
Moot point, they'll always be on the schedule.
not call it "owning" us. They have won 4 games in a row. We still hold a 2:1 lead in wins overall. So until they win 10 in a row, it is meaningless in the big picture. Sure I want to beat them every game but I dont care about Moo U.
We are Moo U's only rivalry. ND might qualify but ask ND, they will say USC and M. Penn State is a trophy game for the "Land Grant Trophy" but a rivalry it is not. Moo U is lost without us. We are the Big Brother.
We still kill them in recruiting: football, hockey, baseball and basketball (McGeary). Our acedemics are superior (save D.V.M.). Moo U is known for being a "teacher's college" but we rate higher. So their best, most beloved program, is inferior to us. What does that say?
Its not homerism. Its the facts, plain and simple. They will always be inferior to us. I didnt make this $hit up.
I wouldn't care to be honest. That rivalry doesn't mean much to us, but everything to them. Beat Ohio.
meh, don't care at all. 2
No shit. If not now, when? This one is a must win.
Win the Big Ten>Beat Ohio>To hell with Notre Dame>Own Michigan.
All are important.
I want to continue playing them, but truthfully, I'd be more upset if OSU were moved to a different week than if MSU were removed altogether.
Doesn't Hoke have a count down clock for MSU? Hmmmmm, seems pretty important.
I honestly wouldn't care. They hate us, we're irritated by them, and that sums up the whole rivalry.
The history of hatred we have with Ohio, however...
Michigan: 903–315–36 (Best in NCAA)
vs Ohio State: 58-44-6
vs Notre Dame: 23-16-1
vs MSU: 68-32-5
vs B1G: 522-197-24
vs SEC: 20-8-1
vs PAC 12: 48-24-1
vs Big 12: 10-5-1<
I really don't care about MSU at all. They are obnoxiuos whether they win or lose so it's not like the game matters to them at all. They would be just as obnoxious if we didn't play them. Ohio is by far our biggest rivalry and IMO the Irish are next (although I was born and have lived most of my life just outside of South Bend). In fact, I'm much more upset when we lose the Jug than I am when we lose that ugly lumberjack.
That said, we will always play them and so I hope we always destroy them. It makes them much easier to ignore.
but I don't. It doesn't bother me that basketball has only played them once in the past.
If anything it would be nice to not spend a week wondering why the hell our guys can never get up to play Michigan State and play with the same emotion.
but just can't get there. Regardless of the football played, it just feels like a bunch of punks are out there. I don't feel that during ohio or nd weeks. I wish it were different but I just don't have any respect for the sparty program. Hell, it could be that the Nebraska game becomes a better rivalry than sparty. I'd hate to see sparty fall off our schedule if I felt there were a true rivalry but it just isn't and as a result, I'm indifferent. Whatever.
I would certainly feel more secure that Ann Arbor would be subject to fewer acts of vandalism by ignorant fools.
and beat them every year...
'Cause I Bleed Blue...
you guys have to think beyond football.....
this situation would only come up if msu left the big ten to get out of our shadow (ala Texas A&m), so we would be losing them in all sports
yes, ohio is our biggest rival when it comes too football (nd might be second) and it isnt close
however, state is by far our biggest rival in EVERY other sport. What basketball game do I care most about? State.
What school inspired the "FYS" chants in hockey after they assulted a player on ice? State. IN fact, I care almost as much about killing state in hockey as I do beating ohio in football.
Just Win Baby
The thing I'm worried about is Michigan-ND ending when the 9 game B1G schedule comes. THAT rivalry means so much to me, at least. Just look at who the two schools are. All the great players, coaches, teams and games they've had. Dave Brandon said he cannot sacrifice a home game every other year when the 9-game schedule comes so the future looks bleak for Michigan-ND.
When the ADept sells special jerseys and gear, you'll see my picture next to the targeted customer crowd. A sheep.....but a Blue one.....
