Reddit is the anus (or Columbus) of the internet.

EDIT:  Wow I looked at this thread and I never knew there were rational people in the MSU fanbase.../gobsmacked

Having a viewpoint that is something other than sunshine and rainbows doesn't make someone less of a Michigan fan. You are entitled to be a Pollyanna, but we are entitled to take off our rose colored glasses if we so choose. This is a Michigan fan blog, not an echo chamber for unbridled optimism and cheerleading.

You should check out r/cfb. It's become my 1b to my 1a at mgoblog. A lot of friendly folks talking college football. Being a dick is frowned upon and there's a lot of friendly ribbing. You can hate reddit at large, but cfb is a good spot for general college football news and conversation - and as noted above, at least there I can share pessimistic expectations for Michigan football without being negged to hell. If you predict a loss around here, you'd think you were spitting on Bo's grave by how pissy some people get

The Kentucky/Michigan fan telling Sparty fan how much in awe he is of their "literacy" is hilarious.  I respekt that.  Both the fan for speaking his truth in his admiration and the Sparty fans for their literacy skills.  Group hug everyone.

247 sports gives MSU a 75 percent chance of making the playoffs if they win out. 

Not so sure on this. Those two losses MSU has received are not good at all. MSU is not even ranked in one of the current polls, low in another.

No two loss team has made the playoffs. 

Let’s say MSU beats the 8th ranked penn state (who may barely be a top 25 team by the season end), beats the 6th ranked Michigan (would move MSU up to 15th/16th in polls) and then beats a 2 ranked OSU team (would move them up to 8/9). In the big championship beat a 15th ranked Wisconsin team (most likely the west winner)...

would that be a playoff team? 11-2? Four good wins and two bad losses?

I guess this is why all the games are played.

Ya know,  I worked for a steel fabricator in Lansing. One morning I went to work and started building massive columns for the FRIB particle collider tunnel.

Under the base plates of one of those columns, "GO BLUE" is written in "maize" paint marker. 

I also worked on the Spartan Stadium addition. The window fascia visible from the river side of the stadium also has the same writing inside the tubes. 

I did my part

I don't think we should joke about respecting the school/institution/athletic department that covered for and enabled Larry Nassar for decades. Not to mention how sketchy Izzo and Dantonio are with their harboring of rapists and criminals, imperiling the student body in order to win games. MSU is a disgusting, irredeemable institution that is a stain on college athletics and humanity as a whole and should be treated as such.
