Sorry to thrust this upon you on a day when we should be relaxing.
Sorry to thrust this upon you on a day when we should be relaxing.
Pride before the fall. Our players will do their tweeting on the field.
That sounds like a dangerous and haphhazard approach to the game...
they do their tweeting from running formations.
when they played Bama a few years ago.
He should know about that. How many carries did he get against Boise? Probably fewer than Denard had touchdown passes. Surprised he was able to put down Bell's jockstrap long enough to hit the Twitter.
So true. What is he like the 4th string HB for msu?
Sparty gonna Spart
This is something Hoke would never allow. Not that we need any bulletin board material, this is good for us. Granted, we need to answer that call on the field.
replied to wrong post
Have you tried five hour engergy
This just happened 2 seasons ago. You would think MSU players would understand getting completely worked over by Bama.
I was going to write something extremely snarky about their intelligence, but geez... would you look at those stats? If someone on MSU thinks Michigan's O looked bad, they had -48 yards of rushing offense, and UM outgained them by over 100 total yards. Yeah, it must be that UM is the only team that can't move the ball against Bama.
And this doesn't even take into account the fact that they gave up 115 more yards and 8 more points, all while scoring 7 fewer.
Shit.... I've fallen into their trap and given time to this pissing match. Damn.
Wipe out the blood, take a break and get to another fight. Why bother to think about how Sparty thinks?
I love how msu tries to talk crap about our QB.... When maxwell had 3 picks in the first half.
Allen obviously meant to say that their walk-on QB is better than Maxwell.
Maxwell vs. a decimated Boise St. defense: 22/38, 248 yards, 0 TD, 3 INT
Denard vs. Ala-fucking-bama: 11/26, 200 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT
At best a push in terms of numbers against massively better talent... they should worry about their own QB before they start worrying about ours.
But this shouldn't be a shocker, this is the same team that stands over Boise St. players after every tackle (why would they have a chip on their shoulder against those guys?) and can't go two plays without getting a personal foul called on them. But personally I think we should try and do a little better job of ignoring it rather than highlighting it here all the time... just my 2 cents
So "we should try and do a better job of ignoring it rather than highlighting it here all the time" when you just spent a moderately-long post directly responding (highlighting) to the offending tweet?
Touché salesman. But I am not the OP! So only partially guilty. Also still not thinking clearly after getting punched in the face on Saturday night...
But this still isn't a big deal, it's twitter. Hard to take anything gleaned from twitter seriously
In the game against Alabama, Cousins' qb rating was 100.44. Denard's qb rating on Saturday was 104. Cousins had minus 56 yards rushing. Denard had 27 and a TD.
So the walk on qb who can't beat out Maxwell is better than Denard and better than the most prolific qb in MSU history??? Riiiiiiiight.
You hit it right on the dime. Well done sir.
And they are college kids making fun of a rival who got pasted on national tV.
I wouldn't chalk it up to much more than that.
at what happened on Saturday night, but in private. I agree, it's just "boys being boys" to some degree, but they are still role models behaving poorly in public. I'm not going to lose any sleep over it, but I'd be pretty embarrassed if Michigan players did that. If they do that later this year, don't worry, I will be the first guy to say it's classless.
Wait wait wait... MSU can't do a single thing without comparing themselves to, making fun of or whining about Michigan??? When did this happen? /s
There is a serious inferiority complex at MSU.
It's amazing how quickly State forgets about getting destroyed by #16 Alabama in the 2011 Capital One Bowl 49-7.
Breaking news...idiot MSU players and fans say idiot things on twitter. What passes for journalism in Detroit, I guess.
Don't blame Dantonio. His players are idiots, not him. And yes technically, we scored MORE than they did against Alabama and held them to less. And yes, their QB had more INTs then ours.
Most classless (and lame) of all were the tweets made by former MSU Bball player Delvan Roe. Don't quit your day job, Seinfeld:
"If you can't play football go to MICHIGAN. If u can't throw a football go to MICHIGAN. If Walmart is your favorite store go to MICHIGAN lol
Denard Robinson still is the most exciting player in college football. You never know which team will catch the ball lol #ROLLTIDE
Brady Hoke was asked y doesn't he have a headset or do anything on the sideline?"Denard Robinson is r quarterback there's NOTHING we can do"
Michigan is getting Raped right now. I bet Jerry Sandusky is proud lol #ROLLTIDE
Oh for fucks sake could we possibly get any more butt-hurt? Now big mean old Sparty is saying not nice things about us? On Twitter? THE HORROR!
Jesus people grown a pair and deal with it. We got curb-stomped by a VASTLY superior team on Saturday and yeah, players from schools that don't like us enjoyed it. What a shock. I swear to freaking God that the last 24 hours of postings has been one butt-hurt whiney bitch after another. Bama cheats....waa waa. Bama doenst make their kids to class....waa waa. Sparty is saying mean things.....waa waa.
I absolutely loved the comment made earlier today (sorry don't remember who said it)
"You want to win the MNC? You just found out how far you have to go."
Seriously. There's always talk on here about how "MSU is irrelevant, nobody cares about them, MSwho?", yet we probably talk more about MSU than anybody else. We get more MSU commit posts, more useless articles about them, and so on. People on here are obsessed with Dantonio and MSU
Also, here's the comment about "how far we have to go", http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/after-24-hours-digesting#comment-1702877
You said something honest and true; no one has challenged what you said but simply downvoted, which is pretty easy to do.
I'll go ahead and join your statement - I want in on the "negging."
Somebody missed the point.
Laugh it up MSU. Your starting qb threw 3 picks against a Boise State practice squad. You also seem to forget that you got your asses handed to you by the same Alabama team 2 years ago.
Those guys have such an inferiority complex.
You posting here proves our point. Go back to the scum and villainy of RCMB.
making comparisons. See the posts above. People, just don't do it.
Maybe Alabama is reloading because they are boatloads of four and five star recruits?
Alabama #1 (4 five star, 14 four star, 9 three star)
Boise State #72 (11 three star, 10 two star or lower)
Alabama #5 (1 five star, 15 four star, 9 three star, one two star)
Boise State #82 (1 four star, 6 three star, three two star)
Alabama #1 (3 five star, 14 four star, 5 three star)
Boise State #53 (11 three star, 8 two star or lower)
Alabama #1 (3 five star, 14 four star, 9 three star)
Boise State #54 (13 three star, 9 two star or lower)
So let's recap Alabama has had the #1 recruiting class in the nation three of the past four years and their "down year" was still a top five class. Boise State has never cracked the top 50 and has only one four star player over four years. That's why Alabama is "reloading" and Boise State's roster is decimated.
Recruiting rankings do mean a thing,
Signed the 2000's and sparty's 6 game losing streak and michigan's recruiting out of florida during rich rod.
You cannot seriously compare the two games. Maxwell has promise? Really? So does every qb who started a game this weekend. Sparty beat a ranked team? You were supposted to win, you were the favorite playing at home. MSU didn't choose to play Alabama? Oh, ok so that makes getting curb stomped ok because you didn't choose to be in a bowl game with a far superior opponent. Give me a break so if sparty ever makes a bcs game and they get killed it wont be their fault because they didn't choose to play in that game.
MSU scored 17 points against a defense that returned two starters. MSU won by being bigger and stronger than BSU, but that advantage is not going to carry into B1G conference play. There were a ton of chances to nail Bell for big losses, but BSU's defense missed a ton of tackles. BSU's offense did nothing but give the ball back to MSU over and over again, and MSU scored a whopping total of 17 points. Michigan scored 14 against one of the top teams in the nation with future NFL stars all over it. It is way premature for MSU to be doing too much chirping, because if they played Bama the way that they played BSU they would have been shut out.
Also, as far as the MSU defense goes, there were a lot of plays to be made against them, and Southwick just didn't have the comfort level in the offense to capitalize. BSU has won in the past by out-executing more athletic and more talented teams. They simply couldn't maintain that level of execution with only a couple of returning starters on both sides of the ball. It remains to be seen as to whether or not MSU's defense can maintain what they had last year. They will still probably be good, but they may drop off a bit against real competition.
Finally, the OP shouldn't hold his breath waiting for MSU to learn how to win with class. Class has never been their thing and probably never will be. Dantonio is a bitter and angry guy and doesn't care how his team looks to the rest of the world as long as they win. And just like you don't see really wealthy people always talking about their money, the most talented teams don't need to talk about how good they are. MSU can't "act like they've been there" because most of these kids weren't alive the last time that MSU was an elite team.
Only a Sparty slappy could lecture another school about losing with class without a hint of irony.
Hope that burning couch didn't singe your eyebrows.
chose not to play in a game of that magnitude. Alabama and Jerry Jones were probably pretty upset that MSU turned them down and went after us just to piss people off.
I guess MSU probably chose not to play the BCS last year as well, right?
At least MSU got to throw it's national relevance/clout around when the Big Ten got split in to divisions. Who wouldn't want IU to be their protected rival.
Please explain this relationship between Andrew Maxwell and the concept of "promise".
I guess we watched a different game. Also, didn't this young man have a year to prepare under the watchful eye of erstwhile Redskins starter Kirk Cousins?
You would think that with your running back more or less occupying the front 7 and by the third quarter compelling a safety to cheat that Maxwell would have looked better. Much better.
He looked like a deer in the headlights on Friday night. What happens agains experienced defenses who take Bell away? Don't delude yourself that teams can't put it on Maxwell's arm based on scheme...(Denard learned about this somewhat from Kirby Smart over the weekend).
Cue gratuitous Maxwell image:
Dantonio will probably join in the fun at his next press conference. Why would he try to control something he probably encourages?
Nick Hill's 2 carries for 4 yards makes him an expert on talent and ability.
He's just pissed that Michigan never offered him.
