|1 week 4 days ago||Exactly. Watching Buckeye and||
Exactly. Watching Buckeye and Sparty fans grovel before this space alien-looking turd, who probably doesn't actually care much for them either, is amusing.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||Some people didn't like how||
Some people didn't like how loud he was, but for hockey I loved Gary Thorne. "Centered, shot, SCORE!!!" just takes me back to so many Wings playoff runs.
Also, Brad Nessler is probably my favorite just in terms of voice sound. And memories like, "His favorite target, Jason Avant, trots out to the right side...final play, at Michigan Stadium..." we know what comes next.
And Keith Jackson because obviously.

Read the OP and was like, "WHAT?"...completely forgot Michigan did not finish in the Top 10 last year. Kind of surprising, looking back, but I guess I was overlooking how ugly the OSU loss was.
Deserved a higher ranking this year, but as someone stated above, can't have that late-season fade. Close games or not.
|6 weeks 5 days ago||I lurk every now and then,||
I lurk every now and then, too, just for the pure comedic value. Never disappoints. Found a guy there the other day, the post was a bit lacking in clarity but it sounded like he was griping about how he actually made a Wikipedia page for the "Detroit Blue Wall media" or whatever they call it, and the site took it down. The essence of a State fan, right there. I mean, Wikipedia pages for your bitchy conspiracy theories about Michigan and the Detroit media. HA, HA, HA...
|7 weeks 5 days ago||Except instead of "30 For||
Except instead of "30 For 30", they'd need to call it "Zero For Six", unless Kugler ends up making an impact this fall. And at Michigan.
|8 weeks 6 days ago||The last week and the||
The last week and the Harbaugh/Rams speculation has almost made me sorry for MSU fans. I mean, imagine if, "Jim Harbaugh isn't even a good coach, which is why the day is imminent that an NFL team offers him a contract he can't possibly turn down," were an argument you actually, seriously, tried to put forth.
|10 weeks 1 day ago||Obviously it's still not||
Obviously it's still not clear Harbaugh's at Michigan for the long haul.
Keep dreaming, RCMB.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||I love the 16-page (last I||
I love the 16-page (last I saw) thread about the Harbaugh leaving rumors, which they totally "don't care about". As soon as it became apparent he was going nowhere, the immediate pivot was to, "I don't care one way or the other if he leaves (lol), I just enjoy seeing them melt down." They truly have no sense of irony.
|12 weeks 4 days ago||This team lost two games by||
This team lost two games by four total points because the offense could not mount a sustained drive when the game was on the line, simple as that. This issue also had them flirting dangerously close to letting MSU back in the game. It DID cost them the MSU game last year. I really, really hope that this is because Harbaugh knew he did not have a will-imposing O-line and, at the risk of upsetting some folks, has a QB who, while solid, still isn't that dynamic guy you can hand the ball to with three minutes left and say, "OK, go win the game (or put it away)". I really hope his 4th Quarter conservatism was rooted in something like that, issues that will go away when Harbaugh feels he truly has a team that was 100% molded by him.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I much prefer this take to||
I much prefer this take to the "Big Ten is rigged against us" talk. Let's leave that type of behavior among Sparty fans where it belongs.
It is definitely hard not to feel snakebitten, though. The Colorado Hail Mary, Appalachian State, the Clowney hit, last year's MSU ending, this program sure seems to make "all-time" highlight reels for the wrong reasons, like we're still paying for Desmond's Heisman pose or something.

The comments I can understand as, you know, that's what fans do, but the article? Are we maybe a sensitive widdle Buckeye?

Eh, if nothing else it's cute how they think a few good seasons means the B1G's status and theirs are intertwined.

Meanwhile, Sparty losing to Illinois. "Totally" should have beaten Michigan, though. LOL
|16 weeks 2 days ago||This morning I had to ride in||
This morning I had to ride in the vehicle of a coworker who listens to 94.9 in Lansing...home of MSU sports. They were talking about this issue, I was just waiting for it, and sure enough there it was..."Hats off to Penn State for taking a stand on this". Can't even acknowledge Michigan did the same thing, I mean how pathetic can you get? Just another addition to the "Why You'll Always Be Little Bro" database.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||Still busy not being Little||
Still busy not being Little Brother, I see.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||LOL. Yeah, you guys were so||
LOL. Yeah, you guys were so quiet when you snapped that six-gamer in 2008 against a team that finished 3-9. Keep embarrassing your fanbase some more though, I suppose it can't get much worse.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||"Oh, but Michigan loses like,||
"Oh, but Michigan loses like, a million seniors! They probably won't even be able to have a team next year!"
Um...remember all those years you were out-recruited and you said it didn't matter, because Michigan doesn't have a coach who can develop players? Well...they do now. And he still out-recruits you, too. Bright side: due to the schedule, you have a slightly shorter wait for your shot at redemption next fall. Not bright side: 32-23 is going to seem like Michigan being nice.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||I work in Lansing, just four||
I work in Lansing, just four miles from the heart of darkness itself. Plenty of State fans in this office, but it's a fairly "bookish" crowd so they're pretty quiet about it anyway, and while I'd say they're a plurality, they're not a majority. I've got no reason to not be magnanimous, or even bring it up, really.
Social media, however, has been great. Other than a post about comeuppance re the 2-point try and its hilarious outcome, a comment I'd have made about any game, I haven't said anything. I want to make clear to my Sparty relatives and friends where they stand: the "joy" of beating you is no different than beating Illinois, the only difference is the massive relief that accompanies it, with the knowledge I (mostly) don't have to hear your stupid shit for a year. Losing to you sucks far, far more than beating you exhilarates. Even my Johnny-come-lately cousin, who started watching football three years ago when Sparty was on the rise, got nothing more than my silent satisfaction. See, this is how things were before you jumped on the bandwagon. Gloat? About beating Michigan State? Surely you jest!
Now, it has been tough not responding to shit like, "Props to my Spartans, worst MSU team since 2002 holds SCum to 32 points!". Oh, OK. So I guess Michigan gets "props" last year for "holding" the best MSU team in 50 years to 27 points. Alas, I don't go there. Postings like that are nothing more than begging for Michigan fans to get down in the mud with them and grant the recognition they desperately crave.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||A team with a 20-point lead||
A team with a 20-point lead went to sleep in the 4th against them, again. That's really it. Except this time, unlike against Baylor, they're a lousy team and lacked the ability to take advantage.
|16 weeks 5 days ago||God, it's gonna be a long||
God, it's gonna be a long year listening to these fucks before Michigan boatraces them in the Big House next fall. All I've heard all day is how they should have won, a play here or a play there, bad coaching decisions or it would have been a rout, blah blah blah. This from the fanbase that treated last year's win like some ass-kicking. A 60-minute football game was played on the field, yours, to be exact, and at the end, you had fewer points. You weren't robbed by officiating, you were never in a position to win the game on a single play (oh wait - but what if we hadn't gone for two and then Michigan fumbled the onside kick, I mean, think about it - really! LOL). You lost, your coach made the ultimate bonehead decision just to be a prick and then had it hilariously shoved up his ass, now you sound like clowns, just shut the fuck up and go back to whining about your dogshit season and who needs to get fired over it.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Two other things: abject||
Two other things: abject refusal to acknowledge the backgrounds of the "Little Brother" and "Pride Comes Before the Fall" dust-ups (or, in the former case, even the full quote). Also, what do Plaxico Burress, Charles Rogers and Devin Thomas have in common? They're all wide receivers MSU fans thought should win the Heisman.
Sorry guys, 25 years and counting since a WR pulled it off. He's the guy you like to heckle on College GameDay, by the way.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||Which reminds me of probably||
Which reminds me of probably their worst hypocrisy of all, whining about how "arrogant" and "elitist" UM alums are, while calling any anonymous Michigan fan they encounter online a "Walmarter" and often making some pretty nasty socioeconomic remarks based on little more than the bug up their asses.
|17 weeks 2 days ago||I have a million reasons, but||
I have a million reasons, but lately it's been the hypocrisy that they're somehow a different kind of fanbase, not "delusional" like we are.
"Man, you Walvies sure are excited to beat a 2-5 team, I love how you think it's going to erase the last several years!"
Firstly, no one thinks that, secondly, yeah, thanks for reminding me how introspective and measured you guys were after ending your six years of misery against 2-5 Rich Rod Michigan in 2008.
"It doesn't matter that we needed a miracle to win last year because we statistically dominated, brah!"
This will come a minute or so before you're told that Michigan's win over Wisconsin doesn't matter because even though Michigan outgained them 349-159 and had 21 first downs to 8, Michigan only won by a TD.
Basically the truth is whatever they need it to be right now, i.e. they're just like any other fanbase. I just hope they finally have to shut the fuck up for at least a little while after Saturday.

In before WD "Beat Sparty" post...
Jokes aside, let's see us have a meltdown over it like they do.
Somehow I imagine I could be waiting a while...

The other great thing about that quote is the guy clearly forgot how Izzo's last game went.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||No offense, but||
No offense, but comparing how we did against Rutgers kind of makes it sound like you're scared of OSU and are trying to convince yourself however you can that Michigan will beat them. I'm certainly not saying they can't, but scoring 20 more points on Rutgers isn't the reason for that.

Thoroughly enjoying their wheels coming off.
