This got posted by the MSU Community Relations Coalition group on Facebook. Naturally, I assumed this was a fake group (probably created by Michigan fans), but the group appears to be for real. So... enjoy the most Sparty thing ever.
It can be scary in the dark, maybe they're burning the couches for light purposes.
She's mighty mighty.
and full of terrors...
But what the hell is that about?
oh dear god. i also don't get it. but i'm 34 and not a mom. i'm worried for myself.

and the black kid "oh snap" gif
That is disturbing and I forgot what this post was about.
If Michigan takes down Izzo this weekend, East Lansing is going to look like a weenie roast at Art Vans.
I, for one, am sad they took down the Riot Status page on their servers...let you know easily where the couches stood.
They took it down? This is so disappointing. Although they never changed it (probably as a PR move), it always made me smile that they even had that page made in the first place.
Burn on Sparty, burn on.
It's kind of surprising to me that nobody has yet identified the foolproof way to get Sparty to stop burning couches: spread a false rumor that couch-burning originated in Ann Arbor.
Maybe someone already started the rumor that couches originated in Ann Arbor and that's why they have this problem in the first place?
Its almost as if they're saying to themselves, "Whatever they can do, we can do better."
But like my dad always told me (a '47 UM grad), if you're gonna be a ditch digger (couch burner), be the best one that you can be.
Can somebody with a more in-depth knowledge of all things Spartan please explain to me the facination with setting furniture on fire? I'm 53 and for as many of those 53 years as I can remember I've been a Michigan fan and have lived through a lot of joy and an equal amount of pain supporting the Wolverines and I've NEVER even felt the tiniest desire to set fire to mine or anyone else's couch because of a game.
B1G AD's screw Michigan out of a Rose Bowl in 73? No couch on fire.
Mike Lantry's field goal to win the 74 OSU game ruled wide when it went down the middle? No couch on fire.
Lost to Indiana in 76 in the finals of the NCAA Tourny? No couch on fire.
Lost to USC in the 79 Rose Bowl when Charles White was given a TD even though he fumbled on the 3 yard line? No couch on fire
Lost to USC in the 90 Rose Bowl when holding was called on a player not in the game wiping out a fake punt for 60 yards that would've given Bo his farewell Rose Bowl victory? No coach on fire.
Lost to NC in the 93 BBAll finals when Chris Webber called a TO he shouldn't have? No couch on fire
I could go on but you get the point. What in the fuck is wrong with them anyways?
Thanks for bringing up all those bad memories. It's enough to make someone burn something. I just can't out my finger on what would be best to burn in this scenario...
if it hadn't been for my wife, the old Zenith color tube TV almost was smashed in '93. That sucker still works though - up over my bar fridge in the basement.
Actually, there was some victory rioting on South University after the 1989 National Championship - cars overturned, street signs uprooted, glass-breaking. But yeah, no burning couches.
Although quite honestly, if I was in college during the '93 timeout, I probably would have set a couch on fire or something similar.
in everyone's defense that was in the area (you can't prove anything!), that was also hash bash weekend, and the grateful dead were in town. So FWIW, the crowd was a combination of students and out-of-town visitors.
Lighting a couch or similar piece of furniture on fire on East Jefferson circa 2007. Some guys I knew roasted some hot dogs and a marshmallow or two. Nothing crazy.
While we were smoking pot they were huffing glue.
Maybe Ann Arbor's anti-porch couch ordinance is that effective? It retroactively went back in time and protected all of those poor couches. Maybe it's the color green and white but I don't recall any couch burnings in Ypsilanti (and if anyone had a reason to burn stuff it would be Normalite/Huron/Eagle fans). I dunno.
I found this article to be quite funny. Included pictures and the reports that were made.
Someone printed out 25 copies of this and currently has them soaking in kerosene to use as kindling for their next couch fire.
If it is actual Sparty work, it's even better than anything a Michigan fan could possibly do to troll them.
I was skeptical at first, but this MSU Community Relations Coalition is an actual thing. For Sparty, by Sparty. And all the couch-burning that entails.
MSU's just catching up with WVU.
They just couldn't figure out how to record with their iPhones.
If MSU and WVU got together for some massive blaze off to see, once and for all, which school is the best at couch burning, I think you would be able to see the amount of smoke from space.
Vince McMahon, Donald Trump or someone needs to make this happen.
That might give an unfair advantage to Dantonio's recruiting efforts...
Even if something like this effort perhaps becomes a thing, it still may take years to get all the combustion by-products of the polyurethane foam and various flame retardants used in upholstery down to trace levels in East Lansing, not the least of which would be hydrogen cyanide gas, ammonia and carbon monoxide. It would have to be interesting to do a ground water study in the Red Cedar neighborhood.
habbit now. Because when they graduate in 7 years, mom and dad will not see this as appreciation for free room and board in the basement.
So...they're finally joining SOFA
If you're gonna set a sofa on fire, make sure it is a sofa king! Sofa King flammable!
That is Sofa King smooth.
