I think its about time we clearly define, in comical form of course, what Spartan football has become.

Let the games begin...

Come to Michigan State, you can see the practice field from your jail cell!

Spartan football, felons welcome!

I will admit that these suck, so please make this better than I have.

because I am not, I'm sure a remix to a Bone Thugs classic titled "Thuggish Ruggish Danton'" could serve as their new fight song. God knows it couldn't be any worse than their current one...

I was watching 300 the other day and couldn't help but think how fucking stupid a Spartan is for a mascot. Last I checked, a Spartan was a resident of Sparta. And I'm pretty sure Sparta isn't within EL proper. Why don't they change their mascot to "MSU Brazilians" or "MSU Texans"? Those are both just as fucking applicable.

I'm sure glad the state of Michigan is nicknamed "the Wolverine State" so we don't look as clueless...

Well you obviously missed the point of my comment. And technically, no, a Spartan is not a ruthless warrior; as I said a Spartan is simply a resident of Sparta. Anyway, I think it's pretty lame when mascots don't reflect the wildlife or history of the region. The Florida Gator, the Michigan Wolverine, the Wisconsin Badger...those are real mascots. I'll even add the Terp to that list.

Stealing any ordinary mascot (Bulldog, Tiger, Trojan, Spartan) is pretty lame IMO.

If you're being sarcastic and I missed it, then I apologize; I'm having a shitty day.

but your posts don't make a whole lot of sense. If you walked up to someone on the street and said, "What's a Spartan?" you'd get 99% responding "Oh, it's those huge dudes that fight and kill people and stuff." Everybody needs to pick a mascot, and some are more creative than others, but whatever.

Feel better soon.

Smoke Green, Snort White
Can't Read, Can't Write
If your an engineer, we will fight
We're stuck at Moo U, that is our plight
Our Coach's punishments, they are light
Cell block 13, is in our sight
MSU and Jackson county, we are super tight
We are as good as U of M, well not quite
But we think we're cool, just sippin on some Sprite
Just like rats, we roam the night
Against nerdy fellow students, we inflict our might
95% of the time, we're high as a kite
Student athletes should obey the law, yeah right
Just ask Glenn Winston, he ain't contrite
Its in our nature to brawl, just like a shark wants to bite
Us folks in East Lansing, we're not too bright
When we see that winged helmet, we cower in fright
