Knob gobblers? 

IIRC, "knob gobbler" is a slang term for one who performs fellatio, but I for the life of me cannot figure out why? Only the very strangest, most disfigured penii would at all resemble a knob. Add to that, oral sex certainly should not be performed in a manner approaching "gobbling," which I think of as rapid, sloppy eating.

Not really. I just know that the one's I've seen - including my own, those I've seen in pornos, and the old men in the gym that believe they required to walk around naked after showering - are not shaped like door knobs.

One of my favorite quotes from That Thing You Do...

Phil Horace: I've found that a hit record is like a stew. All the ingredients have to come together just right. Otherwise, it's just soup.

 

This team is Beilein's perfect beef stew.  He got the ingredients just right, and just in time to make a huge run in the dance....

at #5 in AP, only behind the four #1 seeds.  Don't even have to check - can already here their fans and the geniuses at the RCMB bitching about being a #3 seed, yet ranked ahead of all the #2 seeds.

26-4 - but 0-2 in the games that really counted to them.

Fuck Sparty.

our Super Bowl. MSU got the Detroit pod; obviously those other 31 games mattered as well MSU fans had high hopes this year, and one was achieved with an ouright conference championship. A tournament championship would have been nice, along with the 2 seed it would have given MSU,
but a 3 seed in Detroit to start isn't
a bad start to achieving the number one goal of Final 4 and beyond.

I'm not saying you can't be happy Michigan won those games, but the games that matter the most are still to be played.

TL;DR Kudos on your wins, but if you think MSU fans are miserable because of losses to Michigan, you're wrong.

First off, I think it's a disservice to our players and diminishes the abundance of talent by saying Belien does more with less. 

But in general, I read a stat the other day that said JB has made it out of the first weekend of the NCAA Tourney 3 out of 10 years. Izzo has 13 out of 23 years. Let's just pump the breaks a little, that's all.

It would be nice to appreciate the tremendous basketball in our great State without having to make belittling and objectivley false statements.

Don't get me twisted. The fans want Izzo to beat Michigan. But it's a not a make or break in basketball, because there's so many more games.

The typical MSU fan would rather have, in lieu of defeating Michigan in descending order: a National Championship banner, a Final Four banner, a Big Ten Regular Season banner, and finally a Big Ten Tournament trophy.

In football, the fans value a playoff appearance, then conference title, and finally a win over UM.

The football game has more riding on it because the conference season is only half as long and there's much less margin for overcoming a loss especially with OSU being a Juggernaut every year and only 4 teams being invited to the playoffs.

Hoping for a deep tourney run obviously, but as a former Beilein critic, I couldn't be happier with how this season went. I am beyond excited for the future of this program!
