Niko Porikos grew up in an NTDP billet home. Cool story.
Over 100 reasons to HATE Michigan State
This guy has found a way to simultaneously be a moron and an oxymoron. That is sorta impressive in its own way...
Drew Stanton ripped the cover off of his NCAA video game
57 State fans claim their mascot is cooler but refuses to acknowledge that it has NOTHING to do with the state of Michigan.
plus he wears a skirt.
Actually, wolverines aren't indigenous to Michigan. So maybe we should keep this one on the down low.
They were at one point. Definitely sometime between 1817 and now. I'm too lazy to look it up online.
There was a sighting a few years ago. Got a picture, too. I'm definitely too lazy to look it up online.
I always thought the nickname Wolverine State was more in reference to the ornery nature of the Michiganders that fought in the Toledo Border War than the actual animal itself.
the "wolverine" state.
Faded, tattered, "1988 Rose Bowl Champions" sweatshirts.
their ever changing helmets
shades of green
The 10 year old Spartan fan sceaming obnoxiously behind me in 2004 when MSU was up 27-10 only to finish sobbing in his father's arms when Michigan prevailed 45-37. Wait that's a little joy mixed in with hate....it may not count.
Actually, I elbowed my buddy next to me, pointed behind us and we both giggled with glee like 5 year olds.....
because, unlike us, they are not the university of puke
Their fans are "true" fans, while no Michigan fans actually attended school there, and are just on the bandwagon.
My parents went there
Because Spartan fans make comments like this, "If you didn't have Braylon Edwards, you'd never have won that game!" Uhhhh, yeah....
State fan: If you didn't have Braylon Edwards, you'd never have won that game!
Michigan fan: You're right! If we didn't have all those awesome players, we'd be....YOU
Because they call D'antonio "the Doctor." A cheezy rip-off of a cheezy nickname for Sweatervest, "the Senator."
They're basically trying to become OSU Jr.
"trying" sums it all up.
They win once in a decade and put up billboards and print shirts to commemorate the occurence
Sparty and his stupid laser eyes.
They shop at Save-A-Lot.
Because Spartan fans chide Michigan fans for jumping on the basketball bandwagon and pretend like they've never fell off....ever.
when they lose they act like they won.
Because I'm jealous of their consistent trips to Final Fours.
Because their coach has the character to design a package specifically to go after Forcier's shoulder.
Delusions of grandeur EVERY single year.
The redcedar87 bird call: The fact that they have many fans who'd rather Michigan lose than State win.
Losing Nick Saban, therefore losing their chance at becoming a solid contender in the BigTen, therefore making the BigTen look inferior to the SEC.
The amount of fans whose response to Bo's death sums up as: "good riddance you fucker."
Because of their constant 300 references. Seriously Leonidas died
less than halfway through the battle unceremoniously (in real life). That is a sweet movie though, remember we have X-men Origins: Wolverine.
Future MGoShirt candidate?
Green is a secondary color. Maize (as a shade of yellow) and blue are primary colors used to make green. What the hell does this mean?
MSU stole Michigan's colors!
(Anyone else a stundent back then? - F-ing UM killer)
I went to a game at Minnesota as a kid (I think 1985) when Skiles was at MSU and he dropped 45 on the gophers with no 3 pt line. He would have had probably 75 points that game. When he crossed half court - everyone at the barn was yelling SHOOT SHOOT (and he did nearly every time and it went in nearly every time).
One of the best college basketball performances I have ever seen.
Because they used a Jedi Mind Trick on Tiny-Brained Millen-person to force the Lions into drafting a one-legged Sparty QB instead of David "The Hitman" Harris.
They're constantly saying how spread out Michigan's campus is when in fact MSU's main campus occupies a much larger area.
Because the little bitches chose to have a team from Ohio, not Michigan, represent the Big 10 in the 1974 Rose Bowl.
Bo never forgave them and I never will, either.
they know what a 1... 2... 3... first down is. bitch. (should make this number 29)
Because Spartans make up 90% of the trolls on Michigan blog topics, but they hide their allegiance because they know it weakens their credibility.
The literally thousands of Spartan fans that go to the Joe just to root against Michigan in the CCHA Championship after their team choked the night before.
Or rooting for Michigan Tech in the 2007 GLI Final....Jebus! MSU fans are petty!
