that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides

Of course! This way when we beat them we will be stronger in the polls! Duh
With how cocky Sparty is getting it would be so great to have them to be undeated when we beat them. It would make licking the tears of unfathomable sadness from Sparty's face that much more enjoyable.
I'm pulling for ND. They're like OSU, I dislike them, but I at least have a level of respect for the tradition and history of the program as well as the rivaly they have with Michigan. I have no respect for MSU. I have lived in the Lansing area for a decade and their fans* are far and away the worst.
*State does have some decent fans but it's a matter of the 98% that are d-bags making the rest look bad.
I'm rooting for someone (outside of MGoBlog) to realize that Tom Gholson isn't actually that good. ESPNU just talked about Gholston being MSU's impact guy. He hasn't done anything this year. He only has 2 unassisted tackles on the year and they've played a retooled Boise and Central. Max Bullough is way better and he seems to get no credit
That way I don't have to listen to spartan fans saying that they are going to the national championship.
I am rotting for Herpes
maybe you should have your doctor look at that, then.
a good game and schadenfraude from one.
I can't stand either program but im rooting for ND after Sparty started talking smack about Denard against bama and Shane Morris on twitter. Plus I feel like there ranked way to high in the polls they haven't faced anyone (Boise lost Moore and McClellin amongst others over the last two years to the draft and arnt as good as they once where) top that off with a terrible QB and all u have to do is put 8 in the box and stop bell which I think manti teo will have his way this week
I want MSU to win now, because of the Big 10 thing. But once the game gets kicked off, i find myself rooting against Sparty. I guess i just hate them that much.
I think ND will win in a close one. 26-24.
Dude, the big ten thing? The big ten doesn't need state to beat ND. They need Wisconsin not to lose to oregan state.
in a closely played game in which both offenses have multiple unforced turnovers and both teams get beat up.
I hope msu keeps winning and talking or tweeting, as those young people do.
ND beating MSU at MSU followed by Michigan beating ND at ND sounds pretty sweet. I'll take that one.
want them to lose. But a complete clusterfork of a game, with tons of penalties and miscues on both sides is the most important thing.
Rooted for them last year, will do again this year. I hate ND, but dont' HATE them.
We must always route against state because they are in our division and things could come down to overall record. I didn't even read other posts but I'm sure they said the same thing. Not to mention one team has been better than the other. Always route for the underdog. Always route for the shitbag.
How can you call MSU little brother and then pull for them to lose. Anyone who does must come from a fucked up family. MSU all the way.
Have to root for the Irish. My dad, who taught me to love the Wolverines, always pushed rooting for the other Michigan team when they weren't playing us, so I tried. After last years disgusting display including the attempted neck breaking on Denard, my 80 year old dad rescinded his advice and vowed to never root for State again. I doubt I ever will again either.
Toughie. I mean, I agree above the any MSU loss helps in the division but would like to see ND taken down a peg before next week. Also, with the attention this game is and will be getting if you have any conference pride it would be nice to see some decent B1G showing in front of a big crowd. Whether we like it or not they are kind holding the flag right now so I've gotta give MSU the edge in supporting.
Think of it this way, let MSU go undefeated until they come into AA. Would make the attention for that game and a UM win even bigger, right?
for a 0 - 0 quadruple overtime tie in which they eventually give up because nobody cares - they both suck
or perhaps an earthquake
Hve to root for MSU. an irish win might energize them for the nig game next week and it makes the big ten look even more pathetic. Bell and the rest of the offensive line end the game with season ending surgery. that would also b nice
at the Vet school and a herd of zombie cows rampages through Spartan Stadium doing whatever zombie cows end up doing ... but given that cows kill more people than sharks every year, i assume it will be terrifying and potentially gruesome.
At first you hope it is a Ford Ranger, but on closer inspection you reailize in horror that it is in fact a F-350 Powestroke Turbo Diesel.
It would also mke the worst version of one of those "Haulin' Ass" posters
Can't bring myself to root for MSU, plus I like what I have seen from ND so far
I root for numerous mistakes, confidence shattering failures, dropped passes, missed blocks, missed tackles, broken coverages, dropped snaps, lots of penalties.
In other words, someone has to win, but I don't want them to get any confidence from it.
Will there be couch burnings? I was led to believe there would be couch burnings.
This one is easy for me. I'm outside of the state so sparty doesn't annoy me. Why? Beacuse let's face it, no one has heard of MSU outside of Michigan. Go Sparty beat ND.
Root for a close game that causes both teams to dig deep into their playbooks, both on offense and defense -- a game rich in useful film for the Michigan coaches.
Root for them both to lose.
For most of my lifetime Sparty have been the lesser between the two programs, both in terms of on the field potency and general fanbase intolerability. Even if things have changed recently, it's still more fun watching ND lose than any other team in the country, Ohio included.
Sparty needs to shut up
I always root for the Spartans with the exception of when they're playing us.
All my Spartan friends are reasonably intelligent and rational people who don't hate on UM. Hard to believe, I know, but there are Spartans that love their school and don't hate UM because they couldn't get in.
Anyways, screw ND and Go Spartans!
