This was not unique to Brandon. Why hate on it? schools like MSU are actively marketing the ability to sponsor the head coaching title...they just can't get the support.

It does illustrate the context for MSU's recent success to some degree. As long as we are a solid team (which we should be) there is a good chance to win that game. State hasn't beaten a really good team in a hostile environment AFAIK. They have faired much better when the crowd is not against them in big games.

Dantonio hasn't won in Ann Arbor in FIVE years! Back in the days of Rich Rod and Leveon Bell!

Last year she was bullish. she thought Hoke could do it. Once bitten, twice shy.

So now you are completely discrediting your first post where you relied on MSU's overall team offensive performance to laud Cook?
They played common opponents for a quarter of the games in 2014. I think that is a big enough sample for a comparison in football.

Points scored? That is like saying that MSU won more games last year than Iowa, so that proves Cook is great.
Look, you try to isolate QB play to evaluate it. EVERYONE in sports does that type of "framing." Stepping back further to team points or team wins just gets further away from the evaluation of QB play (isolated).
In fact, the fact that MSU's overall offense was better than Iowas kind means that Ruddock must have REALLY outperformed Cook to get equal stats on a much worse offense, right?

Isn't Cousins a middle class man's Cousins himself?
|6 days 13 hours ago||Cook's accolades||
Cook's pre-season hype is similar to the type that UM offensive players have received in the past. They are pre-season "ones to watch" because the TEAM has been solid multiple years in a row. Individualy he is good, not great. His accolades come from the TEAM and primarily the defense being so good in 2013. What other QB is coming back with a team that has been top ten the last two years? He gets default hype this year.

some kids do prefer Clemson. But, suggesting bag men is not our crazy conspiracy. It is a product of their sleazy reputation.
|1 week 1 day ago||wrong.||
it's not "whenever" but only certain schools that have a likely we'll deserved reputation for this. a select few. most of the time those comments are not made, such as for kids who pick ND, MSU, Stanford, VTech, etc.

What makes a burger the best? There is a time for a Hunter House burger and a time for Redcoat burger. But, they are much, much different.
I think it depends on the mood. Like beers, burgers come in a variety of categories.
How about a "simple, delicious burger" category and a "gourmet burger" category?

I take property damage seriously as an economic issue. Rarely if ever does it rise to the level of something more than that.....
|3 weeks 1 day ago||if I knew||
I wouldn't post it here.

You think it's depressing that I even question how much this matters? Crazy.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||your good buddy's||
cousin sounds kind of dumb. I am sure his career was unspectacular.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||??||
The question is how important this is and my hypothosis is that the more important this is to you, the less mature you are about the decision you are making. The less mature you are, the bigger the risk your overall priorities are messed up or will get you messed up.
In the end, I just don't think it matters much at all. It is probably somewhere around the importance level of a "cool throwback" or "crap throwback" uniform in a night game. De minimis.
|3 weeks 3 days ago||"Matters"||
What do you mean that it "matters"?
Everything matters to some degree. I don't think it matters much. Do some people like a certain brand, yes. Is it hugely important to recruits, nope.
Of all the considerations for where to go to school, such as coaching staff, proximity to home, success of program, academics, amenities of the facilities, hot girls, etc. this one goes pretty far down the list,
I would even suggest that IF this happens to "matter" enough to beat out any of those other factors above, well.... that recruit has messed up priorities.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||??||
what are you basing that on? the fact Bama and LSU do it? what about just doing what north Korea does? if your friends were jumping off a bridge....
|3 weeks 6 days ago||It's the michigan state fans.||
It's the michigan state fans. The UM/MSU game this year in the afternoon! In EL resulted in an arrest rate of 1 out of every 700 people in the. Stadium. That is getting arrested.... Wow.
|3 weeks 6 days ago||So MSU didn't provide||
So MSU didn't provide ejection numbers? If they did, I bet they would top the list.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||I didn't start a..||
...thread about the frat thing. I just respond to stupidity of the holier than thou with public figures.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||rage?||
you can't read. nothing in my posts conveys anger or rage. now read yours.
as for the importance of your post in light of the circumstances... it has none.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||rageaholic?||
neither thread is legit, but at least I know it.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||my point||
exactly. not thread worthy.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||funny||
|4 weeks 3 days ago||either that or not making a thread about nothing...||
there is a di#erence.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||every mention||
every mention of Michigan football in the paper is technically news. we don't start a thread for every 5-10 Michigan football articles published every day. it would get stupid quickly.
|4 weeks 3 days ago||thanks.||
let's keep recirculating this story every time a new minor detail comes out. stay vigilant!!
