This saying alone gives RR license to score 80 if possible in any given year versus MSU.
Sparty Hate Thread (Day 1)
I don't think walmart is all that bad last I knew it was worth billions. Plus most MSU fans and alum would starve to death and run around naked if it wasn't for walmart.
>> Why did the MSU graduate stick his DIPLOMA on the wind screen before entering a parking lot?
So he could park in the HANDICAP SPOT.
>> Minus the last two years. What is the difference between MSU and cereals?
Cereals are found in bowls.
I hate how much my sparty friends talk about greg jones then when I say anything about Denard they say "Why don't you just suck his dick".
It's easy. Ignore Sparty. Don't let them get under your skin. Let's not drop to their level.
That is the ACTUAL reason why they hate Michigan. Ignoring them actually twists the knife a little more! They want to be our number 1 rival, but it'll never happen.
Similar to what you would do if your little brother was tugging at your pant leg.
Of course amongst my Blue friends and I can say I hate their stupid fucking mascot, their stadium blows, their helmets are among the worst in college football, and East Lansing is a shithole.
I hate em they STANK!
thats what i was going for
Irish, Spartans, Buckeyes, Gophers, Hoosiers and all sorts of Illini STANK, and I HATE 'EM.
Spartans with all that Big Ten Championship talk...I can't understand you, go back to your city BLUE POWER.
*Editor's Note - Clayton Bigsby Big Ten Edition realized he was a MSU grad. He has since resided in seclusion in the middle of the UP after divorcing his wife for being, quote, "A Spartan Lover."
Sparty ran out onto the dance floor in a Sparty tux about 11pm at the reception. He danced, took pictures with the crowd, drank half empty glasses of champagne off the tables, got drunk, and tried to get the bride to go home with him.
Well... really just the first two of those things were true, but it still sucked having my buzz killed by seeing Sparty running around.
-"You guys haven't beaten anyone good"
-"Wait til GREG JONES!!!!! hits Denard!!!!"
-Their extreme cockiness after a win (even if it's a game they were expected to win- like ND)
I could go on and on, but I'm making myself sick.
I can't comprehend how anyone could think "walmart wolverine" is in any way insulting or clever. furthermore, I am aghast at how the person fails to reflect on how uncreative this dime store example of alliteration would make them appear.
Seems to me I've heard this before, but it was Manti Te'o who was supposed to murder Robinson... well look how that turned out:
damefan1 said to wait until Denard hits a wall, which apparently is the worst thing about running fast. I'm still waiting for a construction team that can build a wall quickly enough
(news flash: it's not greg jones)
Te'o is better than Jones.
SPARTY #1: Have you seen the picture of your defensive coordinator. It has a picture of him and it says "MICHIGAN DEFENSE.... they have none." I have that as my background on my laptop. :-) We own you
ME: Sure, our defense may be suspect, but we have Denard Robinson. It will be a good game, for sure, but I wouldn't recommend saying things like "We own you" when your record against us is 30-67 and 5 ties. That's a 29% win percentage. Knowledge is power.
SPARTY #1: Stop refering to the past. It is the present bro.
ME: So how do you own us in the present then? We haven't played yet. You are full of LOGIC FAIL.
SPARTY #2: Keep it classy, Michigan fans. Might as well just give shoelaces the heisman right now, just like Forcier last season.
SPARTY #1: Cuz "I Have A Dream" (MLK) And my dreams come true. ha "We are not the same, I am a Spartan"
ME: Nah, I wouldn't give him the Heisman right now. There's a lot of games left to play. But, I will say that no other QB in history has been able to do what he has done so far this season (two games with 200+ passing and 200+ rushing, both against BCS competition). He is on pace for 2000+ passing yards and 2000+ rushing yards. Forcier wasn't doing that last year, not even close. When a player is leading the nation in rushing, he's in the Heisman discussion. When that same player is passing for over 1000 yards over 5 games (assuming you count the 7 minutes he played vs. Bowling Green) with a 70% completion percentage, then you can't deny he is one of the best players in college football up to this point.
ME: @SPARTY #1: I don't even know what you're talking about anymore. I can only assume that quote was from 300 since they play clips from that movie after every play. How Martin Luther King Jr. plays into all this, I haven't the slightest idea.
SPARTY #1: Its a Spartan thing, you wouldnt understand.
ME: Well, hey, MLK was a rad dude and 300 was a good movie, so as long as it all makes sense to you, it's cool.
SPARTY #2: Offensive dominance over UMASS and Indiana is really impressive. Very few teams are able to put up good statistics against such powerhouse opponents. I don't really understand how they aren't ranked #1. After all, they are Michigan!
ME: Well, one of his best performances was against Notre Dame in South Bend: over 500 yards of offense. Additionally, I'm not saying Michigan should be #1, you are, but seeing as almost every team in the country plays easier out of conference schedules (MSU's being W. Michigan, Florida Atlantic, Northern Colorado, and ND) I think it is a decent measuring stick to judge one's performance. Whether the competition was weak or not, no one else in the country can do what Denard has been able to do against similar competition played. Michigan actually played two BCS level teams in Connecticut and Notre Dame, and after those games, Denard had more total offense alone than many FBS teams. Robinson currently leads the country in rushing by almost 200 yards and is 3rd in passing efficiency. It seems you are looking at it all through green colored lenses instead of actually recognizing what he has been able to accomplish from an objective standpoint.
SPARTY #2: I never once said anything about MSU. I forgot about Notre Dame. Powerhouse 3-loss Notre Dame who hasn't been nationally relevant for years. Good call.
At this point I just stopped posting as all reasonable discussion was clearly not going to happen. I have now adopted a policy of ignoring everything said to me. I'm sad it started this early in the week though. *Sigh*
Lol, love the part how he says idk what you are even talking about anymore.. like you couldn't have explained it any easier..
I have a similar story for a friend from college..
He didn't go to MSU, he is just a raging MSU homer. Every wk since the beginning of the season he updates his facebook status after MSU wins, but before he even mentions anything about MSU winning he puts "Michigan barely wins again, or Denard will break in half in a few games.."
Or better yet, this wk he put how MSU completely rolled Wisconsin and more bs about michigan.
I didn't know that scoring a TD on 4th down with a minute left when you are up by a field goal is rolling any team..
It is my msu friends and only them who are so fuckin concerned with what michigan does wk in and wk out it's pathetic
I have long since hid all the MSU people on my facebook from my news feed.
tl ; dr
u should reconsider and read it
i am really starting to hate the phrase tl;dr. it's being way overused. why don't you just say "i couldn't take the time to read your comment even though i came to this blog with the intention of reading something but only if it's a one sentence zinger" yes this seems bitchy but this blog has stopped showing common courtesy towards one another which deters people from posting and makes everyone resentful of each other.
Two rules apply here:
1. What are you thinking? Engaging a Spartan in meaningful conversation? As you have discovered, it is the definition of futility.
2. When in doubt, see Rule #1.
Here's the latest tweet from their AD: @MSUAD: MSU Blair White and UM Mike Hart both playing for Indy today. White 20 yards / Hart -4. I love this week.
What a piece of shit.
As expected of MSU
As expected of MSU
Another logical tweet by an MSU idiot, considering White is being passed to by one of the best QB's in the world, and Hart has to work for his yards.
I would like to respond by saying: UM QB's starting in this week's MNF matchup: 2. Spartan QB's starting in the NFL: 0
He didn't start but the Bears put Todd Collins in the game.
They are one hit on Shaun Hill away from Drew Stanton starting for the Lions!!!! If that is not an accomplishment to be proud of, I don't know what is.
Very classy little brother.
those 2 catches make up 2/3 of his season total. talk about production. how did plaxico do today? never got that tweet
I hear the New York Penal System has a pretty good league. He shot through the defense like a pistol through his leg.
Braylon Edwards 86 yards and a TD. Yes Mr. Hollis. 86 is a bigger number than 20. That means Braylon had more yards than Blair.
Well it's probably like the days of when I would listen to Radio Moscow during the years of the Soviet Union. The would have a nice story about a nice Russian family that was happy but they would neglect the 10 that weren't.
I took some family and friends to watch the game at BW3 and it started before either the UM or MSU games were over....
However, one of the best moments of the evening came when Wisconsin scored and one of my party cheered. A loud MSU fan at the adjoining table glared at him and said: "Are you a Wisconsin fan (keep in mind my friend has a Michigan emblazoned shirt on)?" My friend responds: "No, I just don't like State." This led to Sparty fan returning to his scheduled program.
was behind me at a bar for the game on Sat. He was saying over and over again that Denard was just a running back playing the QB position. I took every oppertunity to turn around and say "that was a pretty good pass by a RB" every time we had a good pass play. These people don't understand that Denard is the complete package.
For using my favorite word: "douchenozzle"
those poor wretches have been decimated by budget cuts while UM went from academic strength to strength these last ten years. They hang onto football because it's all they've got.
After the game, Michigan students return to classes at the world's 15th-best university. MSU students return to the worst one in the B10.
Year 1 in college football is 2008 according to many a State fan.
But try explaining that it is best to judge Rich fully in the 4th or 5th year, or that being 8-4 or 9-3, 2 out of every 5 years is unnacceptable to the U of M fan base.
I'd have better luck teaching my dog to use a rice steamer.
I hate it.
Today trumps yesterday or tomorrow in the world of smack talk. We need to win so we can have today back.
How about that day counter the MSM and state fan spits out since Michigan won a football or basketball game? If you tell me that you don't hate that crap, you all are either baked or lying through your teeth.
I wonder why...
I hate my stepmom, she is a Spartan.
I am 34. I have witnessed a lot of MSU vs UM games in my life but I have NEVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER (Need bigger caps) wanted a win over them as bad as I want this one. I am sure thats most die hard Michigan Football fans right now.
You captured my feelings exactly. Sparty has put the big red x on their backs with the passive aggressive whining, and are the hunted. I sense this group of Michigan players is ready and they are going to bring an unreal group energy to this one.
Marsha, Marsha, Spartans!!!
I love how Sparty fan so gleefully says, "You started out last year 4-0 too and look where that got you He! He! He!".
Doesn't that describe MSU's last 20 seasons?
I hate that this game has become the fight to be Big Brother for the next 365 days. My first recollection of MSU being called Little Brother was 2003 in the Dueling Sports Editor pieces in the Daily. How far off am I? Obviously it was made well known by Mike Hart, when did this really start being used?
I saw Desmond Howard say it live in Michigan Stadium the day before Braylon's hat trick. He said, I'm paraphrasing, that MSU is like the little brother that chases you around and tries to climb on you and you have to constantly flick him off of you. He went on to emphasize the big 2 and the little 8. The problem is that it was a taping of Cold Pizza and obviously nobody gives a crap about that show. There was also a Bubba Paris sighting in that episode.
* Fixation with the 300 is tiresome. And they all friggin died, no?
* Focus of Sparty on "academic excellence." Laughable.
* Damn St. Dantonio Iconography. What has he done? Seriously.
We must pummel these f****ers senseless. I am already mad as hell.
She's meaningless in the universe of college football yet she acts as though she matters. She is a whore.
I would be careful using "spartina". Got one poster around a 10K negbang.
on I-75, I was walking back to my car. I'm decked out in Michigan gear. The guy parked next to me points to a Sparty hat. I roll down my window, and he loudly exclaims "your defense is like a bowling ball rolling down a hill." I responded that so is our offense, good luck stopping Denard and drove away.
I want to upvote your post, but you're sitting at 16 right now which seems so appropriate for your comments to the state fan...
They haz none.
heres the thing. i want this win as bad as the next guy, but both sides are kinda at fault about the whole past/present thing. when we talk about the past, we are talking about when they were rebuilding...or rather still building lol. but then we say they cant talk about now because we are rebuilding..just hypocrasy on both sides. i prefer to wait for the game rather than talking smack and risking looking like a dumbass come saturday. imo. and im pulling for denard to drop 1000 total yards this week. i hate the dbs at spartan stadium that are 50 years old trying to start cheers. i hate the ignorant state fans, and i hate how the players on their team can get arrested and still play, but i kno quite a few spartans who arent douches :/ continue with the spartan hate
Someone! Put dreads on the Sparty Statue and include a sign: Denard was here. Or use this idea to build off for something better.
I can still hear the "GO GREEN - GO WHITE" chant echoing through Michigan stadium on their last trip to the Big House. Those sounds torment me every day, and my soul turns to venom.
I just threw up from a memory for the first time in my life. Not really but the bile was palpable.
I was raised a MSU fan but somewhere inside of my small head as a young child I realized that I was a Michigan fan and I wanted nothing else. I still would root for MSU when they were not play Michigan and had a lot for friends that went to MSU or played previously for MSU basketball team, even got into MSU (didn't go). This has changed for many reasons including
1) Kicked out of a sponsors tent during MSU vs. UM (at MSU) because I had on my Michigan shirt and there were alumni in there that asked me to leave
2) It seems MSU loves the kick us while we are down mentality and believe that tradition has nothing to do with anything.
3) Thinks they are a superior program
4) Obsession with all things UM
5) The term Walmart Wolverine - ,just dumb
Needless to say UM nation my eyes have opened for me and I give MSU a congrats on jumping over ND on my hate list of teams.
Sparty's sadistic unconcealed glee when Michigan loses to someone ELSE--in light of Michigan's total lack of awareness of Sparty except when we play them.
You need to go no further to understand that BOTH sides know the score.
when i lived in oakland county, i was partners with two other guys in a business. one lived in battle creek. the other lived in e. lansing and was a Spartan alum (an intense one). he bought one of those white lincloln town cars they sold up there that had the green Spartan helmet on the front quarter panel where the Lincoln symbol normally would be. he actually drove it to client meetings and showed it off to customers. so fucking embaressing.
There's only one way to deal with Michigan State fans...
Just don't look, just don't look.
They think our stadium is quiet? Ok, we'll see. I've never heard anyone say Spartan stadium was loud. Plus they complain that our stadium doesn't have enough room? It's because you can't sell out even for Wisconsin and therefore have more room for their fat asses.
I hate how having a thread that talks about Michigan State causes Google Ads to put a bunch of Michigan State related ads on the page, and then I puke and poop at the same time.
After graduating from Michigan, I'm now a first year law student at MSU. As difficult as it has been, I have limited my wearing of Michigan gear typically just to Fridays before a game. Granted, I usually don't go anywhere on campus except to the law school and back, but I've only been called out once for my Michigan apparel. This week, though, I plan to rock the Michigan gear every day.
Nothing would make me happier than kicking their ass this weekend, and watching sparty mope around campus for the rest of the fall. Go Blue!
I just click on my signature. I get a smirk on my face like I just shit on my Sparty neighbor's porch. Then I youtube Braylon beats MSU. That usually helps whenever my blood starts boiling.
shitting on a porch that has a couch on fire.
Most of my family went to State, whereas I went to Michigan, so I have to hear about MSU constantly.
Also: I have an ex who went to MSU. I made an effort to visit her every other weekend, I really did, but when my car was covered with Michigan paraphenalia, it made it a bit difficult. That's not why we broke up, but every time I entered East Lansing, it just made me sick.
In general: they have one of the worst schools in the Big Ten, and are proud of it. As far as athletics go, I've never seen a fanbase boast about so little accomplished.
been able to understand lil' bro's fanatical desire for mediocrity. 6-6 and Motor City Bowl? Sparty On! Time to torch some furniture. The inferiority complex/jealousy thing has gotten very old. Their grotesque color scheme, their off-field extracurricular activities and their obsession with Michigan are all to be hated. Not to mention the fact that they're not exactly an academic powerhouse. In the 2011 US News rankings, Sparty is the lowest rated Big 10 school at 34th for public universities, (79th overall). Compare with Big Brother - Michigan is 4th among public universities and 29th overall. We MUST beat them.
Wait, I'm still wondering if Denard is bad for Michigan?!?
Their uniforms are as heinous as their fans.
Maybe that's why they change them every year...the uniforms, that is.
Even if little brother pulls out a win on Saturday, the great thing is, they're still little brother. We're still the better school, the better education, the better athletic department, the better facilities, the better college town, the better fan base, the better traditions, the WAY better fight song, the better band, the better helmets, the better pretty much everything.
There is now nothing more to add to this thread.
because theyre michigan state
So, I am the only REAL Wolverine out of most people I know (excluding my Dad, but that's it)
This thread has made me so fucking pumped for next weekend. I am so pissed right now just after reading this. Last year I was just in a rage over the game, The Spartans I was with were just in joy and I wanted to rip their heads off. I will be screaming my lungs out at the game and giving every Spartan fan I see, if there are any, tons of shit.
RR, if you ever read this, please, please, please, DESTROY THEM. IT'S FOR MY SANITY.
You barely beat an injured big brother, MSU. We broke our legs, but then we went to the hospital and they gave us some new medicine called Denardanolic.
Because 10/25 of the threads on the front page of RCMB right now are about Michigan. 11 if you count the one that someone started about who won't be ranked in the 25 at the end of the season that is now because obviously all of them said Michigan.
This video I made 3 years ago was inspired by my hate of Sparty.
I have a full on man-crush on you. Brilliant video.
Your efforts are much appreciated.
One observation: dear lord, those all-white away unis were fucking heinous. Please don't ever let those see the light of day again. They looked like kids' UM pajamas from K-Mart.
I can't wait to see what RR has in store for state, I'm sure he's got a special concoction whipped up.
Remember guys, double revenge!
I really really really wish I could +2 you for double revenge....maybe a fellow MGoPoster could cover the other half...
+1 for the support
I hope you don't mind but I added another. Rich is the opposite of dumb. He knows this program beats it's rivals or it is failing. Starting saturday when we'll do it with a gun that is no where near as loaded as it will be in a couple years.
We need to win this game and then just walk out of the stadium like it was no big deal. Thats what would piss State off the most. I go to UofM and have literally around 50 kids from my graduating class who go to MSU and all they ever do is talk about how much better than us they are. We need to get back to the old Michigan football where we really couldn't give 2 shits about MSU. Every year whether they beat us or not, they fall apart after the Michigan game because thats all they care about. If Dantonio went 1-11 every year but beat us, he'd still have his job because nobody in east lansing has a clue that the rest of the country knows that he is a mediocre coach at best
F-em, man. F. Them.
just today I was wearing my Michigan pull-over when I went to pick up a pizza for dinner tonight.
The guy behind the counter looked at me and stated "Hey your a Michigan fan...Huh? Why not Michigan State? That is 'Where its at right now'."
Literally a million things ran through my mind at that moment...
1) Hmmm.... How much of a idiot are you. I am wearing a MICHIGAN jacket! So yeah I am a Michigan fan.
2) You are the one standing behind the pizza counter serving me. Oh the multiple ironies behind that.
3) If 'Where its at right now' means computer lap top black market rings and alledge sexual assualt cases ignored.... I'll pass thank-you...
Instead I just looked at him and said, "No, I don't think so."
End of discussion, he went back into the kitchen and never came back. I got my pizza from the nice young lady also standing there and left.
Spartan ignorance is blind. Combine that with their false bravado makes them just plain annoying.
Its been 25 years since I was in college. Competed athletically back then. Even had the opportunity to see inside both Athletic Departments then. The stark difference between MSU's department that talks about wanting to the the best yet always winds up acting and following through as 2nd rate has been and still is clearly noticably different to Michgan's Athletic Department that talks/act/plans as a 1st rate program.
I just so want Rich Rod to unleash Denard, drop 1000 yards of total offense, 77 points and come into the press conference after the game and simply state, "Now that we have completed the easy portion of our schedule, we can start focusing on the real competiton in the balance of the season."
My favorite Spartan tradition is getting texts from these inbreds saying "Go State" despite the fact that Sparty wasn't playing Michigan. I got 3 such texts at the conclusion of the State/ND game this year.
Time to dispatch these turds and start worrying about winning conference titles and not just games against State.
I hate MSU because my uncle sends my dad an email every year in November saying "Go Bucks!" I also hate them because they refused to acknowledge the phantom second in the 2001 game.
I love MSU's fans, though, because they're always good for bulletin board material. Oh wait, no, I hate them, too.
Go Blue! Beat those Spartan bastards and remind them that all 300 of the Spartans at Thermopylae DIED.
I do not think about Michigan State.
Two wins and Sparty has a sense of "entitlement." You pretty much said it all in one word.
I was kind of disappointed when I heard gameday decided to go to South Carolina, but then I thought about it. I don't want Sparty getting a big head thinking they have some kind of national relevance. They got too much of that with the ND ending, aka their 15 minutes of fame. Two 5-0 Big Ten teams meeting in Ann Arbor. The Heisman front-runner everyone can't get enough of. Why would they not want to set up shop here? Answer: Sparty. No one cares about them. They have no relevance. I would love to beat them then have Gameday come the following week when we play Iowa. That would be sweet. (They will probably go to Auburn v. Arkansas, but a man can dream).
from our friends in East Lansing
I went to the game with some fam, this douchebag jumps up to catch a pass his buddy threw somewhat near me on the way in. Comes down with it and yells "interception, sirarean adams!"
First of all, I wasn't playing or his friend would have known better than to leave him hanging over the middle, secondly, if I was, clearly that would have been a reception, thirdly, I found it awesome that the best player on his team I had never heard of. I later looked it up and found out it was their 4 star recruit from the previous four years of recruiting.
I think they stink and I don't much care for them at all my good sir
I was at a bar several years ago when Michigan was having their with MSU. After one of the commercial breaks there was a reply from the previous year, of a state touchdown. The table of state fans next to me started to cheer until I told them it was a reply from last year. Quieted them up.
I have never understand how a team that wins 3 games a decade on average can have so much bravado.
Junior Left Guard Joel Foreman-
"They're a good team, but I'm never glad that Michigan won. We're ready for next week, that's all I've got to say."
Treadwell on Dantonio's call-
We got the Paul Bunyan and we're keeping it."
I, like everyone else here, hate the jealousy/inferiority complex thing cited by macdaddy above.
What I hate even more than that, are State fans who know nothing about their own history and mindlessly repeat the tired bitchings of those State fans who do know their own history (not that this makes it any better).
It's like always listening to your little brother's little brother tell his biggest brother why his 1st little brother is better than you are.
And if reading that annoyed you, that's what most state fans are to me- even less relevant than the real Little Brother...which is a feat in and of itself.
That Game Day is not covering this game, even with all the Denard hype, says it all.
instead of Woodley and David Harris, (among numerous others). I was pissed, and my Spartan friends/family just thought I disliked Stanton. While true, I also didn't feel he would be a very good QB.
Point being, their inferiority will not allow any rational conversation regarding anything anti-MSU.
