I heard it happened at 31 Flavors. It was pretty disgusting. (I have to learn how to insert stuff in these posts.)
I hope this isn't true. Didn't the same thing happen to Brown about this time in '08?
At 31 Flavors? I guess it's pretty serious.
Its "I guess it's pretty serious" not "I heard it was pretty disgusting" or whatever I typed. Well done.
I blame my employer for not allowing me to resarch my posts by using you tube.
I smell a troll.
I heard a rumor about Tate breaking his wrist, too. My source was this thread. Does that count? Is this helpful?
a circular reference doesn't count!
But it IS awesome.
he should've saved himself the time/hassle and just joined the tautology club instead.
That's good enough for me. Where's my panic hat?
Ummmmm......hello? These are the internets right?
The internets are the adaptation of the inherent human need for rumors procreation. All of you castigating the OP and the other dude need to chill. For as long as I have been here, I would say that 64.9% of the rumors somebody posts turns out to be true.
I thought the internet was born out of the human need to share data between serious academics and porn between everyone else.
Sports gossip simply was born out of the need to have something safe to do at work.
That's an awesome account of the history of the internet. Definitely a valid statement (as far as I'm concerned!)
Ok, I like your adaptive story better, perhaps rumors came along as a secondary adaptation?
arfabe is an MSU fan (from his post history). That is all.
so? It's not like I wish injury on the kid or anything. I was just saying what I heard (and someone else said they heard this too)
So does this mean that you are admitting that you are a state fan? Listen, just stop getting defensive. I guarantee you won't get votes up, and you will probably get down votes by telling us that we are wrong by what we write. So go back up to East Lansing, go burn your couches, and leave us u of m fans alone!
Mallett breaking his foot? Maybe he heard the rumor wrong.
I'm actually impressed with mgoboard's ability to sniff out a troll. Not that many of them make it difficult...
His facebook status, it says "Tate Forcier is going to work out and then get Swoll!"
I will briefly condone FB stalking in this instance. Nice work.
get this. Just because a person doesn't have a zillion points he isn't reliable? He is just relaying something that he heard. Might be true, might be not. It wasn't a Raback Megan Fox mating call style confirmation. Why jump all over him and accuse him of having multiple accounts and what not? Keep your fingers and move along. Someone will eventually confirm/deny stuff..
Because he is a dirty, dirty spartan?
Now that he's been outed, I feel a little stupid. But I'd still like to think that the average poster here wants to be a positive part of the mgocommunity and not stir shit up. Oh well..
This guy is at least 3 standard devations south of the mean.
You know better than to come 'round here posting that nonsense...
facebook is a bitch when you have limited privacy settings.
lots of pics of izzo and crew... poor attempt on the part of the OP to troll.
even break a wrist deadlifting? You could hurt any number of body parts (back, hamstrings...) but wrist? Your wrist doesn't even move while deadlifting.
The false rumor is here, BTW
Barwis' wolves attacked after Tate showed poor form in the dead lift.
Can't believe people are actually that retarded that they make a rumor, yet they use their personal email.. Not even a good rumor, break your wrist lifting? As a QB he wouldn't be lifting enough weight to where he would break his wrist in the first place..
maybe because I wasn't trying to troll? I heard a rumor and posted about it while clearly stating that it was a RUMOR. Read my post further down this thread.
wtf, you really posted my email and my name?
I wasn't trolling or anything like that. I really heard that rumor and was wondering if anyone knew about it (as I said in another post). I made it very clear that it was a RUMOR and asked if anyone else knew about it. That's it.
I've never hidden the fact that I'm a MSU fan and I've been respectful while I've been here. I guess I can't expect that from you guys...
It's almost like you guys didn't see the question mark in the title. Usually that means that someone is asking a question, not making an assertion.
I didn't first hear it from tRCMB.
I came here and posted a QUESTION on the title, and people freaked out like the end of the world was coming.
I don't really care about getting neg'd. I guess I don't see the point of it.
And I realize that if there was any validity to the rumor someone here would know... and that's exactly why I ASKED.
The real problem is your lack of protocall. This board does its very best to post factual information backed up with credible weblinks. The posters on this board do not show up every day and ask "what are the latest rumors?" Or post the juiciest BS they "heard" and ask if anyone else has heard about it. IF someone has something worth revealing, and they have weblinks or credible sources (Raback) then information will be posted.
I didn't pretend like I had factual information. I posted a QUESTION on the title and said it was a rumor. I assumed if it was true, someone here would know something.
Instead, I got a whole lot of angry wolvies.
That is why I said protocall. Know the forum you intend to post to. Nobody (but you) comes round here and posts "rumors" to "ask" if they are true. People only post when they are "certain" something is true. They are "certain" because they have a link to back up their claim. Or they are a reliable poster with tons of street cred. (Raback)
where 'protocall' matters
You have admitted that you are an MSU fan. I assume there are MSU blogs that you could visit. However, instead you have chosen to visit a UM blog. I think that raises a presumption that you are here to troll. That presumption was confirmed when you posted a BS rumor that Tate has a broken wrist. Conclusion: you are a troll. End of story.
I heard this rumor that half the MSU football team attacked some students on their own campus...OH! wait.......
I'm Here For the Negbang...
Are you guys done freaking out? I asked a question and you guys made it sound like I was writing a blog about this.
what does "negbanging" really do, other than disable your account after a certain point?
That's kind of the point, of points.
but why are you guys so upset about me asking a question? I wasn't affirming anything. The title was a question and my post clearly said that it was a RUMOR.
You guys are acting like I personally tried to break Forcier's hand.
I didn't see your original post. I just showed up an hour or so ago, and saw the edited post. I understand what you're saying here, you were asking a question. The problem is that newb's aren't exactly handled with kid gloves around here, and you probably should have prefaced your question a little more, especially since your account is/was linked to an MSU email address.
I'm not saying you shouldn't have asked the question, but intent goes a long way 'round these parts. It was (IMO) reasonable for everyone to assume that you are a Sparty troll, assuming that your original post didn't have any more detail than is contained in the edited version.
Perhaps it was a bit harsh to post your name and email, but that's life on the interwebz. Have a great day.
how about you guys stop crying about this?
I wasn't trolling, just asking a question. You guys must have missed the question mark.
I've been respectful, but the same can't be expected from mgobloggers, I guess. I had higher hopes for this place.
