MSU fans calling for boycott of Outback restaurants

Submitted by Wolverine Devotee on December 3rd, 2017 at 7:40 PM

This is just too good not to post. 


Just sent a complaint to @outbackbowl and @Outback that I will never eat at an Outback again. The food is worse every year and they showed they are want branding lies over quality. I encourage @MSU_Football and Spartans to #boycottoutback. East Lansing Outback should be empty.

Michigan did not beat a team with a winning record. I am a Michigan resident who will not only not watch the game but I will not eat at the restaurant. #boycottoutback

@outbackbowl Way to select an undeserving team in #UofM who
1. Is UNRANKED 2. Has a worse record than #MSU 3. Was beaten by MSU.
It’s a great reminder you only care about $$ and a reminder I will never step foot in an Outback. Hope your game day ratings tank. #boycottOutback

MSU is ranked 16 and U of M isn’t even ranked. And MSU neat UM - so what’s your point?? #BoycottOutback

Good job picking two unranked teams for your bowl game #outbackbowl #scUM #BoycottOutback

Bring back merit-based bowl game selection. And also #BoycottOutback

#FootballinParadise can go [email protected]#k itself. Total fraud taking a team that has not beat a ranked team or a team with a winning record. #boycottoutback @outbackbowl

The @bigten is a joke...Delany's driven this conference into mediocrity. Doesn't matter how you play...what's next, playing the BIG basketball tourney a week early just to get into NYC? Oh yeah, they've already done that #smh - #BoycottOutback

#FootballinParadise I will not watch the game. I will never eat in an Outback restaurant. The food is garbage and outback showed it is all about flash over quality. The steaks are shoe leather. #boycottoutback

had Dantonio saying 'We just need to focus on beating Michigan' or something like that. Good God. This gets annoying. They revel in being butt hurt. 


A 3rd party makes a decision that adversely affects them, a decision that UM had nothing to do with, and somehow that makes us culpable. F*ck them.

Get rooked a bit. But just a bit. They love to be butt hurt.

“Bowl rank” doesn’t really matter beyond the top 4. Michigan always draws well so they will always be in demand. If Michigan were to stop drawing fans or stop being such a TV draw this goes away.

Terrible Ted

Your second paragraph is spot-on. If anyone got rooked, though, it was Northwestern. They were 9-3 and beat MSU head-to-head, so -- if you apply MSU's criteria to the situation -- the Wildcats are the ones who belong in the Outback Bowl, not the Spartans.

Edit: I see that WhoopinStick already made the same point about NW further down the thread.

...that Staee's "built to stop the run" D is about to spend the day with (Good Kinda' Crazy) Mike Leach's Air Raid (why-would-anyone-run-ever-when-you-can-throw?) Offense...Sparty will pay for every blown coverage in beautiful (very likely dry) San a bowl sponsored by a county credit union... awesome. On the other hand Matt, that lucky bastard, can probably double his money when he opens a new savings account at San Diego County Credit Union Stadium of San Diego and gets his $50!

Between the Holiday and Outback, I honestly don't care that much. I guess it will be nice to watch on New Year's day. That said, if it makes Sparty enraged with disrespekt, then I'm all for the Outback.


December 3rd, 2017 at 7:48 PM ^

Wait, you have to include this revelation from Matty W. 


I was informed by an astute college football fan that the Holiday Bowl picks before the Outback. It makes total sense that they would want #15 over . Therefore do not


He came to his senses and will not unleash economic hell on Outback Steakhouse after all (just nobody tell him that this "astute fan" is not that astute).

"We get to play against a top 20 team in beautiful San Diego on a day with no other games, vs playing a nobody in humid Florida on a day with 2 other, better games on at the same time"

I think they need to check the schedule because they're going head to head with 13 Stanford vs 15 TCU in the Alamo at the same time.  More people will be watching the Alamo Bowl just for Bryce Love.

I honestly would have almost rather gone to the Holiday Bowl -- it was at least something different -- since we've gone to the Outback or Citrus basically every year for the past 30.  But this is hilarious and worth it.
