Spencer Hall has penned another masterpiece, this time on the Michigan-Michigan State game. Here's the first paragraph:

NO SPARTY. NO. GO TELL YOUR STUDENT NEWSPAPER TO NEVER WRITE ABOUT THIS RIVALRY AGAIN. THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND RIVALRY. YOU SENT THE WRONG PERSON TO WRITE THIS. THEY’RE TRYING TO MAKE IT BETTER AND AT NO TIME IN A RIVALRY SITUATION SHOULD YOU FEEL BETTER.

There are several Michigan fans there who find this site, and its proprietor obnoxious. There are a few regular commenters there who were banned here. I don't know the reasons behind it, but I suspect that plays a role in how this site is perceived.

Whatever, man. I like this place. I like EDSBS too, but its commenters are often as obnoxious as those at any other place, including here.

I hate CFB. Unless it's changed since I stopped going there. It's "civilized" because people are either downvoted to hell or banned if they're honest. The highest comment is always something like "wow you sure fought hard glad we don't play you guys every week! :)" and it's the fakest shit ever. I'd rather have honest discussion than forced fake niceness. I also felt there was a lot of anti-Michigan rhetoric (while at the time everyone was blowing MSU/OSU and their coaches).

Just beautiful.

HH Holmes - or "Homie," as his friends called him - killed more people before breakfast than Teddy did in two decades. And he did it at a fair, which is like saying, "oh yeah, well fuck your fun diversion from reality. Here is some horrifying death, bitches."

holmes didnt actually kill at the chicago worlds fair though. Hed built some nutbag murder maze out of sweeney todd or a saw movie that he advertised as a boarding house..
Anyways thx for the answer, ill assume holmes it is. Didnt know if we had a genocidal dictator that you were including..

Boy, I'm not sure which is worse, what the MSU rag wrote or this guy writing in all caps. You'd think a journalist would learn that in their first class. Absolutely unreadable.

would be to invite some people into his office but then fake being called away for a bit so they're stuck waiting for him. Meanwhile on his desk there's Ted Kaczynski's manifesto with passages underlined and highlighted. Let's face it, you'd be unsettled, especially if he walked in on you looking at it, so you know he knows you know.

I know what he means about bar trivia. My night is tomorrow, it's not about how much we win by, it's about honor. No looking at your phone, or asking the waitress.

I'm not done with the piece and for the first time in my experience, I've interrupted my own reading because I'm laughing so hard I have to double back to the poster and say thanks for the link. Now, back to reading. If I can recompose myself. Treacly!

from the State News folks, and they (dead serious) told him it is available online (or that he can sign up for the emailed-newsletter version or somesuch nonsense)... #brilliant

honestly, Spencer and Brian (and staff) are some of the absolute best writers in the college football space, going back to way back in the day when edsbs was still independent and before our beloved mgoblog had up/downvoting... he's a realist re: Florida and football generally in the same way many on this site are, and his perspective is always welcome around these parts as far as I'm concerned, esp. when he throws shade at ND in the midst of a full piece crushing sparty for such a supreme example of playing themselves... i mean, how can you not love this: 

"THEY’RE NOT THE ONES LOOKING ANSWERS UP ON THEIR PHONE TRUE BUT NOTRE DAME AND THEIR PEOPLE DON’T MATTER EVEN IN BAR TRIVIA CONTESTS."
