Heading out to Chicago now. Had to wait for that damn blizzard to subside. A nice Italian dinner in Old Town before the game is going to be great. Highly recommend Topo Gigio on N. Wells.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||I get back from the hockey game||
I get back from the hockey game to read this hilarity. Is it ok for me to partake in this major conspiracy investigation without wearing a tin foil hat? I can almost see the paranoia dripping from my screen.
I understand that the straw man fallacy is the standard for the 99% of people that post here. I must apologize for my terrible habit of judging things based on mere merit and not going along with the rest of the sheeple. Please, by all means, continue.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Haha.||
Ok. That made me laugh out loud.
I'm sure they have already contacted him.

Is the Gameday bus still parked by the stadium? Noticed it earlier today while going south on Main. Looked pretty cool.

Lack of quality road wins might result in a 5 seed on selection day.

Well, no tourney for them now. Looks like they will be heading to the NIT.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||Damn.||
That kid is a solid player.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||You don't know much about basketball||
You don't know much about basketball if you think 10 turnovers by Sullinger were some sort of a fluke. MSU was running a dig on Sully every time he had the ball. They frustrated and disturbed him on almost every possession. The fact is that their defense has been playing EXTREMELY well since they lost that game at Illinois. Wisconsin got shot down by a very good defense.
You forgot how they suffocated and beat us down in the paint at Breslin? This is not the same team you saw in January, and not a single team out there wants any part of them. This is a typical Izzo team that starts to click at the end of the year. You would know that if you payed any attention to College Basketball.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||55||
First to 60 usually wins against those floppers.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||That FSU game was really weird||
That FSU game was really weird to watch. Crazy ending to boot. FSU looked terrible early and VT found a way to look worse down the stretch.
|4 years 47 weeks ago||THat train is rolling hard||
That train is rolling hard right now and people are getting run over by it. Looks like Izzo has finally tuned them up and is using the depth and strength inside to wear teams down. I don't want any part of it, that matchup is not good for us at all.

What is up with that left foot? Looks stumpy. Why is he stabbing a personal pizza?
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Is Urban a mute?||
Is Urban a mute? Does anything ever happen at OSU? Why do people religiously obsess about every single MSU bit that hits the media ticker?
Is this real life?
|4 years 50 weeks ago||That is basically a complete reversal||
That is basically a complete reversal of the annual football argument with their fans. Funny how the same pattern repeats itself for both respective positions in different sports.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Thats is pretty funny||
That is actually pretty funny.

I'll take the cannoli. Those are impossible to refuse.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||We should probably just call them Columbus||
We should probably just call them Columbus to be more specific about their location. All the Bobcats in Athens will live with a lot less anxiety of being constantly hated by a fanbase they rarely encounter in athletics. Though phrases like "Fuck Columbus" or "I hate Columbus" might stir up some serious heat from the Italian population.
I don't want to see them at a tailgate. Do you?
|4 years 50 weeks ago||NOT SURE...||
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Who do we have to f*ck||
Who do we have to f*ck to get some recruits around here?
Someone needs to bring out the old Ed Martin recruiting playbook. This is getting annoying.

Bad threads are bad.
|4 years 50 weeks ago||Didn't his '08 campaign go to East Lansing?||
Didn't his '08 campaign go to East Lansing? He was yelling Go Green/Go White and praising all things MSU when he was there. Of course he is going to do that at any destination to boost the vote potential. Plus he was at that basketball game talking up Izzo. It is all done to please the crowd.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||So...||
Does holding ourselves to a higher standard include stalking the posts on their board, and proceed to tell others not post about MSU? Basically just stalk them and then protend to act like you don't care?
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Looks like||
Looks like they are getting 3 screens. There was also a mention about some extendable morphing video wall similar to what U2 uses in their concerts. No info on whether it was approved or not.
|4 years 51 weeks ago||Seems like it was||
Seems like it was a time for all the coaches to briefly introduce themselves and Heck went on to give a presentation/speech before the actual panel started. Too much biased opinion out there bending this one way or another. Misunderstanding on all sides is what it seems to boild down to. An actualy video/audio of this panel would clear this all up for everyone.
|5 years 4 days ago||I heard...||
... a slap coming from this direction.
|5 years 6 days ago||Because no one cares about MSU||
Didn't you get the memo?
|5 years 6 days ago||It looks painful||
That is not a very easy area to endure a needle for multiple hours. Damn, that must have hurt.
|5 years 1 week ago||Thad Matta||
Makes everything possible. The guy is a joke of a coach.
|5 years 1 week ago||Illinois is feeling it||
OSU looks rattled.
|5 years 1 week ago||(No subject)||
|5 years 1 week ago||8-4 and a Florida bowl||
You can't possibly expect much more than that. A lot of key talent is lost, and what a circus it is going to be on both offensive and defensive lines. Too many teams on the schedule have much better experience and depth in the trenches. I really hope Stonum is gone, because you know there will be constant media attention regarding giving a guy his 5th chance after multiple DUIs, probation violations, and jail terms.
|5 years 1 week ago||Yeah, this game is fixed||
Blatant and obvious holds at the point of attack all game long. Nothing is called.
I'm sorry, but the Lions were not allowed to win this one.
|5 years 1 week ago||Tackle!||
|5 years 1 week ago||thats 2 turnovers||
and we did not get a single point.
Got to capitalize!
|5 years 1 week ago||BLOWN DEAD!??||
They should have kept running!
|5 years 1 week ago||Great answer to their score||
Solid drive and execution.
|5 years 1 week ago||Not capitalizing on the turnover||
Not capitalizing on the turnover is huge. Two score cushion would have been nice.
|5 years 1 week ago||Dear god||
He looks scary.
|5 years 1 week ago||Got to get any points here||
Stretching the lead to 2 scores would be huge this early.
|5 years 1 week ago||That works too||
Fumble it is!
|5 years 1 week ago||An interception from Brees||
would be really nice right now.
|5 years 1 week ago||That is huge||
That was a huge drive on the road, and in tough environment. We look confident, and that dome is much more quiet now.
|5 years 1 week ago||Young is money so far||
Great to have an extra option to throw to.
|5 years 1 week ago||OMG||
Come on. Can't make such stupid mistakes.
|5 years 1 week ago||Solid run||
Keeping that in the mix will keep the defense in check.
MEGATRON! Loving the execution.
|5 years 1 week ago||My condolences||
My condolences go out to your family for having to hear it. ;)
|5 years 1 week ago||Lions were missing a lot in the first meeting||
Lions were missing a lot of key contributors in the first meeting. I think this game is going to be very close, and much more competitive.
|5 years 1 week ago||Fight songs in professional sports||
Fight songs in professional sports are very akward. It doesn't really help that Lions have an extremely cheesy one.
Having said that, JUST WIN BABY!
|5 years 1 week ago||A&M is in for a rude awakening||
Think of A&M as a very cocky 18 year old kid that is entering a state prison.
There is going to be a lot of butthurt, and it will not be very pretty.
|5 years 1 week ago||Spirited response.||
Maybe you were one of the fans holding up the sign about the Spartans. It caught their attention, and then twitter blew up with their comments.
Action ---> Reaction. Cause ----> Effect.
Still wondering why the hell there was a sign about MSU at the Sugar Bowl. Got any spirited responses regarding that?
|5 years 1 week ago||Jones is playing for the Giants||
But don't let that derail your point.
|5 years 1 week ago||Baker is the turnover prone back||
Baker is the turnover prone machine for them. He was coughing that thing up all over the place this season.
|5 years 1 week ago||The bad part||
The bad part is that 2012 will be the first time MSU has a deep and experienced offensive line. Bell gets a much better wall in front of him for 2 more years. Dantonio has always had to deal with scraps and shambles when it came to linemen. Not this time. He has an entire class that redshirted last year, which is something new for MSU. The transition for Maxwell might be much smoother than previous signal callers. Apparently Arnett has had prior exprience with Maxwell, and it played heavily in his decision to play at MSU. This is a whole different animal compared to the Williams and Slappy years. They actually have developed depth, while previous coaches were selling out, and played everything that could walk.
|5 years 1 week ago||Do you realize||
Do you realize how bad the depth will be in the trenches next year? Does everyone somehow forget that freshmen are not going to be very effective against deep and experienced lines that MSU or other teams will field? Next year is going to be rough sledding in the trenches. You might as well start getting used to it now.
|5 years 1 week ago||I'm shocked||
I'm shocked that Caper did not transfer after last year. Looks like he will get the nod now when Bell needs to catch a breath.
|5 years 1 week ago||LOL whut?||
Seriously. What? The guy had a horrible year, maybe he is scared of even less touches now that Bell has become a beast for them. Strange decision.
|5 years 1 week ago||Bingo.||
I don't remember any MSU player committing 2 DUIs, violating probation 2 times, serving 2 times in jail, and still remain on the team. I think a lot of people here now feel that rocks have been thrown in glass houses.
|5 years 1 week ago||Red Shirt =/= losing any playing time.||
He skipped a year of playing while still remaining with the team. He did not lose a single minute of playing time because he gets to play an extra year now if he stays.
|5 years 1 week ago||So 5 times is the limit for you?||
That is a lot of strikes, given that this is his 4th.
|5 years 1 week ago||So facts get negged?||
How does that help the discussion?
|5 years 1 week ago||Double post||
|5 years 1 week ago||Here is the big picture||
First Incident: September 2008
Second Incident: Summer 2010
Third Incident: Spring 2011
After all that, we arrive to the current situation. This is his 4th violation of the law.
How many more chances does he get? 5? 6?
|5 years 1 week ago||Looks like he was set on MSU||
"It wasn't a hard decision at all," Arnett said of his decision to transfer to Michigan State. "It wasn't really a contest. It was Michigan State from the get-go."
|5 years 1 week ago||Sorry.||
Just providing some facts.
|5 years 1 week ago||He has that elite 11 kid from Midland||
He has that elite 11 kid from Midland, and they have worked together before. That kid will have something that Cousins never did, a deep and experienced offensive line in front of him.
|5 years 1 week ago||Looks like the sign got them going||
The comments from MSU players started pouring out after that sign was shown on TV. One of MSU players tweeted about it, and the rest took notice.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||I saw that too, but||
it might not be in the best interest of our ivory tower of class and sportsmanship to bring attention to that incident. Roundtree threw Adams to the ground after the whistle and what looks to be intentionally gave a stomp on his helmet. It seems like Adams did not like that.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||So he would be||
taking a page out of LLoyd's playbook on this issue then. Well played.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Where does the admissions||
argument come in? Can you please point me to where the admission requirements for football players differ between Michigan and other B1G schools? Pretty sure it was made clear that every B1G school has the exact same standards for football with the exception of Northwestern(Fitz has made a point of that on multiple occasions).
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Finally||
a rational response.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||Here you go||
I can't stand when people keep lying about this topic. 41:38. The cheers die down, whistles blow, it becomes quiet, and then cheers go back up once it is obvious that Stanton was hurt. Yes, it happened. Stop covering it up.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||The part about...||
the refs blowing the lateral pass is something I can't agree with. The players on defense did not commit to recovering and possibly returning that ball for a touchdown. They hesitated, It was a mental mistake on the player's part and the biggest reason why the refs did not review the play since it was blown dead.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||My God.||
What has this fan base become? MSU played a physical game and we failed to respond or make them pay for 13 penalties they commited.
I attended the game. I was extremely embarassed that our team ran off into the lockeroom without shaking hands at midfield. I don't care how the other team conducts itself during the game, you need to be a MAN and show sportsmanship after the game is over. We choose to talk passionately about their team's lack of class. Meanwhile, our own players fail to be bigger men and show sportsmanship after the contest is over. That was the biggest reason why MSU players decided to chase our team off and taunt them. It was very embarrassing to watch.
Can we please stop acting like a bunch of crybabies? We have two weeks to heal and hopefully finish this season strong.
