Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Thx a lot Sparty. Shouldn't have been on South Beach all night.
They must have been hanging out with The Situation, poppin' bottles.
What up Lupe, throw me your digits...
I wanted them to beat Nebraska. They choked.
I wanted them to beat Miami for B1G/ACC bragging rights and they choke
I should be an MSU fan, everyone here would like me because they would always lose
Time to take one for the team, the team, the team.
Enjoy living in a world where we never lose to Michigan State again and they always win when we need them to! Remember meeee.......
Oh no, here we go.
I forget who it was that MSU was playing last year (I think it was during the tourny), but I thought it was just hilarious that the guard defending him was giving him a 5 foot cushion when he was behind the arc.
Watched the first half. Not much continuity on offense. Softer than expected on defense., allowing Miami penetration several times. Appling is a player, though.
That's what she said
Mark Hollis and excuses
The tinfoil hats are probably saying the refs put them there. THE VERY REFS WHO COST THEM THE NEBRASKA FOOTBALL GAME!! DUNDUNDUN!
Mark Hollis is like a bitter, angry Dad fan except that someone let him run an athletic department and gave him a twitter
You can't spell MSU AD without U MAD??
In defense of "MSU AD", the same holds true for the University of Michigan. Actually it's more true...University of Michigan Athletic Director = UMAD.
HOWEVA! Ours does not whine on Twitter like a middle-schooler.
responded to Hollis, "Wait, so floor decals are a bad idea, but playing on an aircraft carrier isnt?"
I was going to try to come up with something witty to say to justify my presence on a posbang thread when I didn't have any idea MSU was even playing tonight.
Then I realized it was a posbang thread and I don't need a reason.
This is truly a good day
I need to confess my sins...I was rooting for them...I thought that because it was the ACC B1G tourney, I should root for all B1G teams...plus I don't hate BBall teams like I do with Football...but then they laid an egg....Fuck you MSU for having me believe that you would carry your weight
I too was pulling for MSU for the B1G's good. Why is it that whenever I root for State they derp it away to spite me?
whenever I root for State they derp it away to spite me
that's the way they roll
lol blaming a loss on floor decals
That tweet was from this afternoon.
Making excuses before the game even started. Some confidence he has!!!!
hearing the cries of thousands of spartys saying "izzo will have his team ready for march" yet?
Because he will.
This year will be MUCH more competitive in the BIG 10, but Izzo probably will have his team ready by Tourney time.
Just here for the posbang. That's all.
I wish the Big Ten basketball played conference games early like the SEC in football. We would never have lost to Sparty.
I didn't see the game. But I'm going to flip on ESPN News and enjoy watching the score scroll across the screen a few times...
I love that Mike Valenti was talking with Matt Dairy on 97.1 about how ridiculous it was that MSU got such an easy matchup in the Challenge. Lovely.
Also, I remember last year, Valenti talking about how MSU had a better recruiting class than Michigan anyway, and M fans had no idea what it was like to have a good basketball team and we were way overrating our recruiting class and our team. Schadenfreude is a bitch.
i'm getting very tired of valenti's schtick. he is a rant-er and will talk over you when he doesn't agree with your logic/comment.
I may actually dial up 97.1 today and listen to what that asshat has to say. All excuses and backpedaling I'm sure.
Is this what we do on MGoBlog now?
Yes they lost to Miami, but classic Tom Izzo teams are much better at the end of the season. Also, Harris is out for a few weeks and they are much better with him. Let's sweep them again and then get this started.
I think we can all agree that Sparty isn't at top form right now, but still. This is a game they should have won if they didn't play any starters and just played the end of their bench on forward. They flat out didn't show up tonight. Must have been concerned about the decals...
Gary Harris played 25 minutes and scored 12 points...
"Is this what we do" - yes, for now.
"Harris didn't play" - he played quite a bit and had a decent game.
Neg away but...It's so Sparty to post threads like this.
Guys. Repeat after me: we're superior to them in literally every way at this point. The gentlemanly way is to just ignore them and allow them to suffer in peace. No need to continue to pay them any mind.
Cool your jets. It's all in good fun and no one on here is bashing on MSU personally like they do over at RCMB. Apparently you did not live through the decade of Michigan Men's Basketball where it was the equivalent of the Smashing Pumpkin's Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness on repeat. For once we are on top and no one is saying we will/will not lose to them this year, but it's just a good feeling.
Those who stayed loyal all those years and watched practically every game the last 12+ years (such as myself) deserve this.
Nobody said you didn't deserve this (although what do you mean by that exactly?). Why do you think you know anything about me or how long I've been a fan? In any case it's amateurish to post this kid of crap regardless of our recent basketball history.
