I know I've been reposting a lot of Rittenberg's things the last couple of days but I think this one is especially interesting. I know most of us would argue that MSU is a basketball school but it's interesting to see their responses to the question. Is this a product of recent success or something else?
OT: MSU Football or Basketball school?
Aren't they a farming school?
I always thought they were a safety school.
Little Brother cannot seriously consider themselves a football school unless being a football school is characterized by historic mediocrity. The 60's are over. Deal with it.
Considering our claims to cfb fame
There a Parasite on the ass of the state of Michigan and the whole world would be better without them.
Geographically speaking, southeast Michigan is the hindquarters of the state of Michigan. So technically...would that not make Michigan the snooty zit on the state of Michigan and MSU the bastion of the common, hardworking Volk of the State?
they sure aren't a hockey school, who knows how far they are gonna fall after comley is gone
Is addition through subtraction for MSU
about Sparty...next topic. Stop posting about Sparty here on this hallowed bit of the web.
They are a school I don't care about.
Just like I don't care what CMU, Western, U of D etc, etc, etc. are.
A place to discuss Michigan or MSU?
...the school who replaced the U of Chicago Alex.
It's like getting left by a supermodel and then ending up with Roseanne
I'd rather listen to Roseanne than hear "brah" thirty times a minute.
A turf school? You don't have grass in basketball (unless you believe the rumors that Lucious was booted for drug use... zing!), so I guess they'd technically be more of a football school.
(Masters thesis shown above.)
MSU is a remora that has attached itself to the underbelly of the University of Michigan. Until it stops defining itself in terms of and comparisons to Michigan, that's all it will ever be.
I agree. I vote for inbred parochialism too!
Does this mean we can marry our first cousins now?
Safety school yep
Remedial. And who cares how they identify themselves?
I thought State was a half-way house
Tyler's response was unbelievable:
"Top 25 in attendance every year for a mostly average program."
"It's the Detroit media that's always trying to hold us back."
Are you kidding me? How can you say your school is a football school when you admit that it is a "mostly average program?" Not only that, but they have no idea what it means to have the Detroit media hold your program back.
MSU is a basketball program in my mind.
Why don't you ask them?
their entire basis for being a football school is beating michigan 3 years in a row. in the 3 worst year of michigan football since the 50s or 60s. the notion that MSU is a football school is insane
plus, we usually think MSU commenters are dumb. and we usually think espn commenters are dumb. so what does that make MSU fans commenting on espn? probably best to walk away from this one
They are a fail school. They can't do anything.
