I was expecting this to be about Jake Ryan and was ready to be super pissed. As it is, I just find this kind of cute.
Michigan State proves why they are "Little Brother"
Can we get a report on what Michigan St. is eating for lunch today also?
I think it's funny they are spending so much money on SDSU gear. The only people who have any reason to be pissed are the meth dealers who will see a drop in their reveune.
Spending money on South Dakota State stuff just to troll us?
Talk about an unhealthy obsession.
I think they should be a little more concerned about Valpo right now. I guess they are the best team ever and don't need to worry about their games.
Spending rent money on sdsu gear? The trailer park managers wont be very happy when rent is late again...
Michigan's two game pack Thursday night is a separate ticket package from the daytime double-header... I am guessing they will all end up walking around the casino's in their new duds... If they do drop more cash to get in, that is really awesome...
Always buy the full strip. its the only way to take in the tournament experience.
Since when are there casinos in Auburn Hills?
Think buying UM's opponents gear is bad? Wait 'til RCMB shares its thoughts on Jake Ryan.
Yeah, the idiots will be walking around with Mayo Clinic gear on.
I, for one, am sorry they are ashamed to wear their MSU stuff to the game..
I tried to warn you peoples. The Apocalypse is upon us.
In these last days the spartans will lie down with jackrabbits
$50 for overnight shipping? Let 'em spend $70+ on a shirt they'll wear once, fine by me. Beats Spartan gear, though.
I used to be a huge propenent of calling MSU "little brother" and making fun of their little attention grabbing stunts and quirks. But I feel like me and a lot of others here are so over it. Who cares what Sparty does, because I know that I sure don't anymore. We had a nice little run of getting overly annoyed by them, but it's ran it's course.
I don't think it's annoyance, it's just that their level of maturity is amusing.
It's little brother-esque to post about MSU acting like little brother. Who gives a shit

They are pissed at us for not helping them win a share of the Big Ten regular season... Had they handled their own they wouldn't have to worry about another team winning their last game. So go be mad at your own team, don't blame another team.
This thread sucks. Michigan played an entire B1G schedule, playing with a few fake SDSU fans in the stands isn't gonna make any kind of difference at all.
sweat the small stuff or small-minded people.
BTW, they are NO relation of mine.
A lot of folks in this thread care so little, that they've posted a number of times just to prove it.
I'll tell you this, if the t-shirt were made of comfortable enough material, I'd wear a SDSU t-shirt (though not this week). Kinda like Travolta wearing the UC Santa Cruz t-shirt in Pulp Fiction.
Sign me up for the "who cares" column. When we dispatch SDSU by 15 points, all these jackasses who dropped money on an SDSU shirt will feel fairly stupid. Who knows, maybe we'll get an early Easter present and be able to enjoy a little Valpo over Sparty schadenfreude.
I don't see the problem with all this. It just means there will be more yellow and blue in the Palace. Nothing wrong with that. MSU fans not wearing SDSU gear will cheer for them while there will be Michigan fans cheering for Valpo as well. It happens with every fanbase, no big deal.
Here's the RCMB poster who paid $50 for overnight shipping.
Some of them are great, including, "God we suck sometimes"
You can spot the Sparty fan because he will be wearing a San Diego State shirt.
+1, nicely done sir
If you think MSU fans are going to watch their team, then go change into SDSU gear, en masse, you are delusional. The simple fact is a handful of idiots will do it.
Those SDSU swag are sweet.
Welp, if there's an authority on delusion, it's Domer.
They sell that shit?
This is why I NEVER root for them. They pray for our downfall any chance they get, yet arrogantly expect us to pull for them. Fuck them. Go Valpo, Sparty get Valtrex.
not go lie when I seen SDSU i instantly thought about SAn Diego State Univ. and was like why is sparty buying their gear then I realized that it was South Dakota State. Why can't we get along like the SEC do in their bowl games. The Stateof Mich have two teams that is basically playing home games so we need to come together and make it hard on the non BIG TEN teams tommorrow and Saturday. At least make to next weekend.
Making a sign (a funny one) =/= spending $54 on a t-shirt. Especially when the sign was making fun of Sparty's whiny obsession over us.
Nobody is saying MSU isn't a rival either. If they do say that, they are the opposite end of the Sparty idiocy fan spectrum.
I'm not seeing it. That was a high profile BCS bowl, a national stage, and a chance for Michigan to be "back". And what is the first thought of fans? "HAHA SPARTY SUCK IT WOO LIL BRO YEAH" Besides, I don't see anything wrong with dropping a couple bones to sport an SDSU shirt. I didn't do it, but I don't see the problem. It's funny, it's a rivalry, we're going to be there anyway, it adds to the atmosphere...if you've got some extra cash in your pocket, why not?
On one hand you say Michigan should be above poking fun at their rivals on a national stage and then on the other hand you call buying a SDSU shirt to wear to the national basketball tournament as funny and part of the rivalry.
Do you see the disconnect there?
MSU is a major rival. Anyone who says otherwise is an idiot troll. MSU fans need to ignore the trolls just like everyone else. Don't worry, Sparty, we recognize you as a rival. That doesn't mean we don't look down on you when you pull Sparty moves liking dropping $55 on a South Dakota St t-shirt.
The rest of the country sees the Big Ten as a joke and major choke artists so we really need to come together and cheer for conference pride. Let them other conferences know that just because we kick each other butts, we not go let yu do it too.
...and am catching up on the boards. This one made me laugh out loud. They do realize that they can cheer for SDSU without spending $60 on a shirt and shipping, right? The ushers won't make them keep quiet because they're not in the right gear. I don't think Trey Burke is going to be intimidated by the number of opposing team shirts in the stands. Oh Sparty.
