Congrats on a very nice season.  Much better than almost anyone could have reasonably expected.

I am torn. I want UM to go to the best bowl they can, BCS type. So that might not happen if MSU beats Wisky. Gotta go with the Badgers. Hell who am I kidding. I want MSU to get their asses handed to them. I not torn, I was was just taking a crap and needed a little more push. Got light headed.

whisky out my nose.

To the OP - I commend thee for thy consistent gentlemanliness. It's not lost on us a bit.

But we're coming for your asses next year - can't wait until we feast on your freshman QB.  In Ann Arbor.  Under The Lights. 

Be afraid. Very, very afraid or what awaits you. 

And good season to you, too.  Didn't think you had the team to go 10-2.

RationalMSUfan is far from rational.  He pretends to play nice, but his true colors came out before and will come out again....... Back when downvotes meant something,  I want to say he lost at least 400 points in one thread.

Take anything he says with a grain of salt.

I think the predictions ran the gambit from Drew Sharp's "UM will burn in hell b/c they OMG sux" to the occasional Irrational Board Poster/RichRod predicting "OMG 10 WINSS!!!"  And yes most were in the 7-8 win range, with a small possiblity at 9.  Who knew that Irrational Board Poster and RichRod would have been correct?  Certainly not me.  It's kind of funny that there is a possibility that the B1G sends two team to the BCS, and they're both from the state of Michigan.  Who would have predicted that?

Congrats to you guys too, I guess. I don't personally like your coach at all, but he's done a great job of playing moneyball with the talent that's available to him. Michigan State has lost 2 B1G games in the last 2 years, beating Wisconsin twice. That's pretty crazy.

I for one don't think that it's too backhanded to say that this team has exceeded most people's expectations. 10-2? With wins over Ohio State and Nebraska? I didn't really see that coming before the start of the season.

I sincerely hope Bucky The Badger punches Sparty in the throat. 

EDIT: I am sure you're being  genuine - I simply don't (nor could I in good conscience) make it a habit to root for MSU.

I actually love the football in the state of michigan right now! There is an opportunity that both major colleges reach BCS bowls! That is good for the people here, who have struggled so much with the crappy economy, to take their mind off of real life for a little bit.

Wisconsin is a tough team, more so now because of how difficult it is to beat a team twice in the same season, but I kind of hope that things work out for the better.

Both teams had great seasons.

And you are very well-intentioned.

But we hate Michigan State, and we have some optimism that we'll finally break our repugnant losing streak to you next year. We also hope your team gets clobbered next week.

I hope that helps clear some things up. Have a nice week, except next Saturday, of course.

And I mean that sincerely. I really do appreciate the kind words and sentiment. It's a nice thing you didn't have to do. On another day, perhaps we could go out for beers.

But because you represent MSU and have another game: I hope Wisconsin explores your program's collective rear end with a bulldozer.

No hard feelings!

Congrats to the Spartans as well on your season and win over Northwestern. My oldest daughter, an MSU grad, was hoping for a Penn State win today.  She did not want the Spartans to have to face the Badgers again, and I don't blame her. That's going to be a tough rematch.

 Yeah, man, a lot of the people on this board are being asshats to this guy. Come on, board, it's just Michigan State. Getting back to being Michigan again means reserving this vitriol for Ohio.

...I'm wondering if you'd be doing this if your team wasn't division champs and hadn't beaten M.

And I'm not returning the compliment since your team and its fans are generally a bunch of classless punks.  Even Kirk Cousins runs off the field with his four fingers raised in the faces of the opponent.  How many M senior classes pulled off the feat of never losing to MSU, yet never said squat?

Hope your team gets embarrassed on national TV next week.  kthxbai

most of us appreciate your level-headednesson this board.  You are a rare individual and dare I say, you probably could have been a Michigan Man.

As you know, most of us do not like lil bro.  Not because of any rivalry but because of the inferiority complex.  However, you good sir, do not seem to have that.

Good luck to you next week although I will be rooting for Wisky because a MSU loss will jump us over you.  That ought to get the Red Cedar Bowel Movement (RCMB) abuzz.

We need to jump up one space and need GA and MSU to lose.
