That is the equivalent of saying a team would rather win the Pizza Pizza Bowl than the Rose Bowl.
Michigan State does. They want to dominate those in-state bowl games.
should NEVER grace the pages of MGoBlog.
Did you get all hot under the collar when you read that?
Let's keep the RCMB stuff on the RCMB.
Yeah, it's a recent thing.
"Here's my last thing on the "Little Brother" comment too. Don't tell me it isn't a big deal or ask me "who cares?" I care. Thousands of others on this board care. What you ignorant UM fans don't seem to understand is that when he called us "Little Brother" it meant a whole hell of a lot more than football. When that classless overrated runt called us that he not only disrespected our football program for no reason, he disrespected ALL of our athletic programs. He disrespected my university, my sister's university and my friends' university. We're not his little ****ing brother we're not UM's little brother. We're a seperate, outstanding, university whether you or anyone else likes it."
While this may be a bit overwrought, the whole post actually sounded marginally coherent and seemed like the guy cared. I think Hart was great for UM, but from the outside he did come across as a bit mouthy and childish. Neg me if you want, but I tend to agree that college athletes should keep their mouthes shut and just play the game. Talk smack on the field, but don't look like an idiot in the press room.
I'm with you for the most part and ordinarily this type of comment would have irked me. But Hart said that stuff after just having gone 4-0 against them, he had already done his talking on the field.
I see no harm in this kind of comment particularly versus all the stuff about hate and arrogance coming from msu for many, many years. Furthermore the comment was within context of their coach holding a moment of silence for the demise of Michigan football. All said and done, Hart earned the right to mouth off a little.
Saying he looked "like an idiot in the press room" is a bit much. Idiocy in the press room is when as a 50-something year-old man you take a personal jab at a 22-year-old player's height. After said player just beat you.
I think players can talk a little smack, as long as it's within reason. I think Hart's comments weren't that bad.
But I do think coaches should stay above that, which is why I lost all resepect for Dantonio.
I can't believe anyone had any respect to lose for the jackass.
Hart was awesome and articulate. He provided a legendary quote. I'm happy he did.
It must be tough to live in the little deluded world Spartan fans live in.
If it were, there would be fewer of them.
Hey, they have basketball season!
They have no logic, no reason, no bran.
Why is this a surprise?
They have no logic, no reason, no bran.
Regularity is part of the entrance criteria now?
And going to bed. I hate it when I "fat finger" something.
Usually when you fat finger someone, you roll over onto a ham sandwich with a pounding headache the next morning.
for beating me to the bran joke.
I can always use some more bran. Bran muffin, bran flakes, you name it. Next thing you know, I'll be shitting in a cooler in Columbus.
"No Bran" is about right...they are usually full of shit.
"MSU has a much better basketball program, a much better campus, an equal hockey program, better facilities, MUCH more loyal fanbase, and great academic programs that are CONSTANTALLY getting closer to UM's.Yet were the Little Brother? Do you ever hear any of our athletes taunt another university like that? Its just amazing, Foote runs his mouth CONSTANTALLY, Hart did too."
There was so much wrong with that post, I think the UAF polar bear is on it's way to destroy mid-Michigan.
Why are you even going over there?
I have never understood the appeal of going over to someone elses site to troll. Especially posting.... whoever is SparyNo! is just an idiot and is giving Michigan fans a bad name.
The Scout Dorks love to go to Sparty boards and bring their shit over to Michigan boards and then go all, "See how they are obsessed with us?" AND then they brag about getting banned on Sparty boards after being assholes.
I honeslty don't get what motivates someone to bring their shit here. Go over there, post with them, discuss with them, whatever. But leave that shit THERE please.
Yeah, this stuff sounds like the same posts you see at mlive and the freep. MSU is a good Big 10 school - nothing wrong with that. But nationally, UM is heads and tails above them in terms of academics, intercollegiate sports, and overall name recognition. I'm a proud Spartan alumni, but at some point it just sounds like you have an inferiority complex. I would never say that UM has academics that are "getting closer" to Harvard or Stanford, only that the schools offer top-notch programs across a variety of disciplines.
That said, maybe we should stop trolling at RCMB. It just seems a bit unseemly.
Agree 100%. I made the mistake of looking at their board and left immediately. If I'm going to spend time in a message board MGoBlog is the where I want to spend it.
"I'm a proud Spartan alumni"
If you were to actually correct this alumnus (assuming he's a guy), he probably wouldn't even understand why he's being corrected. I ripped one sparty's grammar on the Freep once because it was so poor.
Oh no, I get it. Made a mistake and I'll fess up to it. I will say that grammar policing as a sign of intelligence is one of the most annoying tendencies on the Internet. If you think someone is ignorant, base it on the substance of their posts, not the fact they misspelled a word.
Thanks. I always screw that up when I'm typing quickly.
I decided not to give you a hard time with it because I make mistakes all the time, but it was too good not to point out.
I would say that UM has an academic reputation in the ballpark of institutions like Harvard and Stanford. Not across the board by any means, but certainly in a lot of programs. There are MANY Michigan degrees, both undergrad and grad, that are at least as good, if not better than those which are offered at Ivy League/ top fifteen schools.
MSU can't even begin to make a claim like that. I think this is why it's frustrating for a lot of us; MSU graduates seem to think that they are somehow even in the ballpark on this issue. MSU is a good institution, but Michigan has a reputation on a global scale.
While I agree with the sentiment, there are programs at MSU that are top-notch. Off the top of my head, I know their supply-chain management program at the business school is top-5, as is nuclear physics. Their vet school is consistently one of the best, as is Osteopathic Medicine. They are a good school.
As for UM, some of their programs are tops in America, but schools like Harvard and Stanford consistently rank in the top 4-5 for virtually every school/program they offer. I'm fine with UM being a really good school but not necessarily at the same level as an Ivy/West Coast Ivy - those are some of the best schools in the world. I'm proud of my education at UM, but I think putting too much emphasis on the "we're just as good as you" argument is an exercise in futility.
Obviously, one Sparty program that is not "CONSTANTALLY" (their spelling, not mine) getting closer to UM's is spelling. Posts like this constantly exhibit their inferior knowledge of even basic spelling.
Reminds me of a discussion I had with an MSU fan/friend at a tailgate a few years ago. He accused Michigan fans of being "elitist." My response: "We're not elitist. We're elite."
Well played sir, well played.....
wow....MSU fans are dumber than i thought. I feel like my I.Q. went down just from reading that rambling nonsense that they call a post.
Dantonio OWNS the state of Michigan.
Can we just all agree to pummel these mulleted bastards?
... because MSU is inferior. MSU's constant whining and "beat-us envy" is the seamy underside of the old adage that "it isn't bragging if you back it up."
I see in the OP that "fella" may be replacing the various forms of "bro" in the Sparty lexicon. That's a noteworthy development.
If people want to go over to the RCMB or any other MSU site, that is fine with me....to each his own right? But can we please stop linking to it? This is mgoblog.com not RCMB. If I wanted to read the shit on that board I would go to it myself.
