I don't hate MSU. The fans are annoying. That's about it for me. I think MSU hates Michigan. I think if MSU won the nc in football there is a large base of your fans that wouldn't be satisfied because Michigan would still be there. Michigan fans would still do Michigan fan things, players would still commit and as soon as Michigan does something there is going to be hype. State fans post more about Michigan than Michigan fans do. There's a big game Nee years eve and the State fans I know are still putting Michigan stuff on Facebook. My Michigan people are talking about Florida, basketball and recruiting.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||The wording was wordy. They||
The wording was wordy. They have had a lot of deep runs but THE run has become dated. A lot of their students weren't alive when the Flint Stones were doing their thing. Deep runs are awesome but I also find hanging final four banners consolatory and not prestigious. That's my opinion obviously. I also think Billy Donovan is a better coach than Izzo so there's that.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Basketball? Yes. Which is||
Basketball? Yes. Which is funny because Michigan is the last of the two of them to have the deepest run in the tournament, and that happened within in the last decade. Their national championship was 3 years after Michigan's last football NC. Football? They have had more success, but I don't think they overshadow Michigan as far as presence or image or marketability goes. That's what frustrates their fanbase is their football team's biggest wins have all been under covered on a national stage compared to Michigan's last 3 coaching searches.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||My take has always been this||
My take has always been this:
1. MSU fans have never hidden their vitriol and hate for all things Michigan. For me this is not has always been a two way street. Since they have become a successful program in fooball social media has also become a thing so all that comes to you via newsfeeds very easy and you don't have to get out of bed to read something ridiculous or hear trash talk.
2. Although they have decent fans who are great to talk to about all things cfb and B10 they also have a very famous and large sect of their fanbase who takes pride in being over the top, offensive and off color and who may more than likely have been bullied by a Michigan fan at some point in there life and enjoy Michigan losing at anything more than MSU winning anything. More than likely they are only fans of State because they hate Michigan (see the RCMB). The good fans often go out of their way to acknowledge these fans and not condone their representation of the program and distance themselves from them.
3. Depending where you live in Michigan you probably have more Spartan fans in your ears than OSU fans. They will chime in every time MSU wins or every time Michigan has someone decommit. They are your classmates, coworkers and relatives. Especially if you reside in rural areas or the Lansing area. Because of your relationships with these people they will never go full RCMB on you and only rib you or give you a smirk, but to be safe you must assume they all post on the RCMB.
4. They will indict Michigan based on effigys and stereotypes that have been perpetuated long before I was born (arrogant, classless, etc.), and pride themselves on a code of honor from a Frank Miller movie, but when a State player does something and a big deal is made about it they will spin the story to fit their narrative. Jim Harbaugh yells at the refs too much. Tom Izzo sticks up for his team, Mike Hart is disrespectful but Draymond Green is just having fun. The Fab 5 were too brash and cocky. Connor Cook is just a kid and he was caught up in the moment.
Everyone's reasons are different, but I think most in state Michigan fans can probably relate to this list. Feel free to add to it.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Yea||
That was dumb of me to say lol. I guess if anyone in a coaching position in the Big Ten should have an emotional reaction it should be Urban since they spent more time together. I understand why fans are upset because they are street level, but I have a hard time believing the staff didn't see a move like this coming from Durkin.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||It shouldnt be this dark||
It shouldn't be this dark year 1 of the Harbaugh era. Maybe JH is going to stream DCs like he streams graduate transfer qbs? It sucks to see him go, but this wasn't going to be a long term thing.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Im not going to speculate||
I'm not going to speculate on the behind the scenes stuff or rifts this may have caused. He's Urban Meyer's protege so if any one should be upset that someone found a more permanent home in the same division it should be Urban. You don't think Jim lured him away from UF without knowing this was to be expected? Harbaugh turned down money to take care of his staff. I'm sure there are contingent plans in motion to get the right guy here. Stop eating each other alive you guys.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Checking in||
Checking in to be a part of the lovefest. It was a great season, and we were able to get a few monkeys off of our back. I think the staff needed to see what's been grinding our gears with their own eyes to get us where we need to go. Nothing is easy and everything needs to be earned. Love the team and I love you guys! Go Blue!
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Noon kick||
If they controlled their own destiny to get to Indy it would be nice to have a late start. For some reason this weekend is bad no matter what is going on in my life (worked weekends or family stuff) so there is always a pro and con no matter the kick. It's been awhile since they had more than bragging rights to play for. Go Blue!
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Really though||
It's all fine and dandy in October for the game with MichiganMichigan State but that's water cooler banter, chiding your State friends. When it's all said and done The Game is prestigious, heated for both sides and perhaps the best rivalry game in the nation. A win is important to MSU this week but the only reason they are playing is because they are in the same division.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||For real though||
He does care more about the Michigan game more than any other game. It's going to take one win over them to fire up the fanbase again and everyone will be coming out of the woodwork to call them Little Brother. Agree with it or not it's a sure thing. It has to bother them that they thought their victory this year was all they needed to make Harbaugh go away, back to the NFL. Now here we are half way through November and Michigan isn't hitting rock bottom, or devestated. In fact in most polls they are just 1 spot ahead of us. That has to be unsettling to the sect of their fans that believed Michigan was never coming back.
|1 year 14 weeks ago||Anyone||
Anyone have a .gif of Coach Mark celebrating the dropped pick in the end zone? Probably won't be funny forever but I'd like to see it circulate. I don't know how to .gif guys.

It's November and I still don't know who Jemele Hill is lol
|1 year 15 weeks ago||Rarely, but 1 weekend night when i do.||
In my 30s now. I go a couple weeks between drinks now. Entering my 30s was like this unwanted switch was flipped. I used to be a more nights than not guy. Just destroyed my whole body all through my 20s and didn't feel a thing. Now my body can't keep up. I can remember why I loved it, but haven't had an enjoyable guilt free buzz in some times. Even though I've been forced to grow old I still don't know how to dress like a dad though. If you see me I may look like you, and may look like I want to party, but I can't party with you, but I may try.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Awesome performance.||
The guy is gifted. Sadly this kind of reminds me of how Denard was grinded down to nubs through the seasons he was here. Hopefully we preserve this kid and keep him healthy. Very happy we got the "W" but don't like these games where we expose our wounds.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Next year||
It's going to a tough game as long as Dantonio is coaching. If we go in there with Hill I like our chances a lot more. I haven't forgotten how bad they were after Cousins on offense. The first cut is going to be the deepest.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||How many of you guys||
Pre season around the water cooler predicted Michigan beating either State or OSU this year? Still not impossible. When is the last time you wanted the bye to get over ASAP so you could see the team get back to business? The doors and wheels would be starting to fall off more often than not at this time any other year. Year one under Harbaugh is going well. Get it together!

It was taxes that built the Big House so that the whole state couod enjoy. Everyone needs to be proud of their accomplishments and their status, but no need to try to dissect your in rival's fan base. Stop being a dbag and go change the world with your degree and leave the hd sports and beer to me and my ne'r do well brethern. I am kidding. My advice: Just let people decide who they like to root for and stop being so butt hurt.
|4 years 17 weeks ago||In that case...||
I want to be quoted in 4 years:
Shane Morris? IMHO I don't know how he can ever top Denard. He threw an interception this week. How can he beat OSU, win a BCS bowl and beat MSU.

The RCMB is a shit show. You have alumnus, juggalos, LCC students and what have you falling under Viggo the Carpathian's pink ooze rage. Steer clear.

|4 years 17 weeks ago||MSU fans on my newsfeed...||
If the Spartan fans on my newsfeed are an actual sample of the fanbase as a whole I feel sorry for that team. The way MSU has been playing this year they can be proud for playing great today and all they have is a bunch of ungrateful cry baby fans who bail when the team isn't playing lights out football. Good job to both teams today. I am happy to say the threat is very real.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Academics||
I didn't go to either school (Michigan shirt is from Meijer thank you). I did spend a year and a half at U of M Flint during Lloyd's last 2 seasons which is where my allegiance is for argument with Spartys. Had I gone to MSU I couldn't imagine not being a wolverine fan. Ready for this game and hoping we are solid on every snap.
|4 years 18 weeks ago||Troll for sure. My favorite||
Troll for sure. My favorite thread is the one where one Sparty tries to go all message board Leonitas to talk off all the others off the ledge with some "I refuse to give up" hilarity.
