I’m really glad this game is at noon.  My personal level of preoccupation is not healthy and I need to get this show on the road.  Beat Staee.

johnb, if you get stressed out to where you feel it's not healthy, have stuff to do that is physical, mental or both.  Bring home a boring work project, rake leaves, cook food to eat or freeze, organize a room, anything.  There is no away game we have lost that has not resulted in my getting something done.  Plus the distraction will keep your blood pressure in check.

The posters in this forum frequently offer a lot of good football insight (not so much on the MSU forums). I especially like the guy(s) who break down entire games play-by-play, explaining what went right/wrong -- a post-mortem examination if you will. On the other hand, there is also a fair share of those who post sophomoric comments about Michigan's opponents and in this particular case Michigan State --- or is it just "stae" these days? 

Nevertheless, one of the most comical themes when reflecting on MSU's utter dominance of the rivalry over the last decade are the myriad excuses used for Michigan's decade-long failures --- with the weather being the most laughable and egregious of them all. So it goes without saying that Michigan never loses. It is always the refs, weather, luck, or simply that Michigan beat itself. 

I thought perhaps that maybe it's just my Innate Sparty Inferiority complex (SIC) rearing its ugly head again. That is until I read this article, which only confirmed that it wasn't SIC at all.

It was just reality.

May the best team win!

69-35-6

have you denounced your school's decades long molestation crisis and your president who is as tone deaf as a rock?  how can you even root for that epic disgrace of a school?  you guys looked at PSU and said to the rest of the world, 'hold my beer!'.  congrats on actually out-raping every other college in the universe.

 tell you what, you go clean that stuff up and come back and tell us how 'laughable' we are, okay?

Naturally, I find the things you mentioned above abhorrent and unforgivable. Good thing that he will spend the rest of his life in prison for the serial atrocities he committed. But that has nothing to do with anything I mentioned in my post. I will say however, you are almost as good as the MAGA Muppets in the White House at deflecting the matter at hand. I will wait for your response.

It's not 'he', it's your school and it's admin that knew for DECADES about the rape problem and did worse than nothing, they actively hushed the victims. It's the fact that a legitimate question to you is will your team have more rapes than wins this year.

its Dantini counseling his attackers to call their moms.  It's the steroids (see bullough) and riots/fights.  It's the joke of a community college that is sparty. 

You are the one deflecting, not me.  You deserve much harsher language too, for your foolish and inflammatory comments, but I will pass on that.

I'm sorry, but you can't blame Michigan fans for being annoyed when you come on this board trying to push a false premise of MSU being a dominant football program based solely on wins and losses and then dismissing Michigan's overall win-loss record against MSU.  If it just boils down to wins and losses then you have to concede that 69-36-5 is a pertinent debate point.  If you're going to tailor your narrative to specific a timeframe merely to cut off any possibility of dissent, all while ignoring any subtlety as to why your narrative may not be as ironclad as you claim, then you're being intellectually dishonest, and the troll accusation is fair.
