Ironic and unfortunate that many people point to Sparty's inferiority complex as an excuse to say insecure things about them.  I was pissed when some Sparty fans were taunting as I was leaving the stadium after the MSU game this year, particularly those who were headed towards the stadium that didn't even go to the game.  Not the way to handle a win, particularly a win like that.  But I wasn't pissed because I wished I could do it to them.  There will always be outliers in a large and diverse fanbase, but hopefully in general we're better than that.  If not, what makes us different? 

I'm disappointed that we haven't had more success in recent years against Sparty, and I don't like they way many of their fans handle themselves.  Doesn't make me hate them, which does absolutely nothing but build them up.  Our team just needs to win next time, and hopefully we can collectively show why we're better than them off the field until then.  I also hope we'll handle it with class afterwards (even Mike Hart says he regrets the "little brother" comment).

I think you're still in what they call the first stage of grief re MSU.

I genuinely appreciate Seth's work, but flippantly suggesting that UNLV is racist or inconsiderate of racial concerns is off base.  The former mascot (who most, including the students and big wigs at UNLV, agree was wrongheaded) hasn't been around for almost four decades, Hey Reb is meant to depict a frontiersman, and UNLV has been designated a minority-serving institution by the US Dept. of Education and is the second most diverse university in the country according to US News.  And there's nothing confusing about calling the school UNLV, the airport Las Vegas-McCarran (DTW is much farther from Detroit than LAS is from Las Vegas), or saying that you took a trip to Las Vegas when you stayed on the Strip, despite the fact that they're in an unincorporated area adjoining the city (mostly for tax reasons).
