I guess I don't think it's funny, it's a meaningless statistic.  Tomorrow it will be 723 days and the day after it will be 724 and what can the Spartans do about it?  Nothing because we don't play for another couple of weeks.  Creating meaningless taunts belie an insecurity toward the person or group you're taunting.  I'm used to that kind of shit coming from Spartan fans because they are insecure and small and petty.  I just think we have no reason to doubt our place next to them and that lowering ourselves to their level is beneath us; and yes, I realize that this is pretentious and arrogant and embodies all the things that Spartan fans hate about Michigan fans.  I don't care.  If that attitude grates on the average Spartan fan...good.  Fuck them.

01/22/2019 - 11:24am Michigan is superior to…

Michigan is superior to Michigan State in every meaningful way.  I don't need a winning streak fabricated from arbitrarily selected sports to validate that fact.  It was stupid when Sparty did it years ago and it's stupid to suggest we celebrate a similar milestone now.

It's not surprising when you consider this NFL fan demographic...

The picture is a useful reminder that the internet preserves childish douchbaggery forever.

Technically Tua is already hurt.  Isn't there a steel wire holding his ankle together?

01/17/2019 - 10:42am Warde should have told him…

Warde should have told him he'd arrange it only if he could get a favorable scheduling.  I still shake my head in bewilderment that we allow ND to negotiate scheduling with us as if they're the ones doing us a favor.

Notre Dame as an institution hasn't lived up to the core values of Catholicism for quite some time.  Then again, Catholicism hasn't lived up to it's core values either.

01/17/2019 - 10:34am There are still a lot of…

There are still a lot of young men out there enthralled by the romantic notion of playing for Notre Dame.  I don't get it, but there are.

Tweeting at college players is just a bad idea, regardless of your age....

Yeah, but was it homemade gravy or that swill you get from a jar?

01/16/2019 - 11:20am Dantonio is "legendary"? …

Dantonio is "legendary"?  MSU has a very different definition of what constitutes legendary.

01/15/2019 - 12:49pm I think it's becoming clear…

I think it's becoming clear that his "magic" had more to do with Michigan and Penn State turning into trainwrecks in the early 2010's.  Hell, we get a single punt snap off cleanly and the luster is even dingier than it currently is.  Dantonio is a good coach, but he's shown himself to be a lot closer to Ferentz than Saban in terms of ability.

It's painful to listen to Brandstatter's PBP; it's not his talent.

01/15/2019 - 7:23am Maizen is long gone...well,…

Maizen is long gone...well, almost certainly not gone.  It's tough sledding for the troll crowd right now, but they're out there, waiting for something to go sideways so they can start up with their bullshit.

"I don't like white people, and I hate rednecks.  You people are rednecks; that means I'm enjoying this shit...."

OK

As an aside, Teri Garr was a babe back in the day.  Funny and beautiful are a nice combination.

Meanwhile, over in East Lansing Dantonio is reacting to his own offensive productivity issues by shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic....lolSparty.

What makes you think they made it across the field?

How does Alabama start true freshmen QBs yet we have the “QB guru” and have to depend on transfers 

I don't know.  How is that we have so many posters on this board that can't seem to stay on topic?

01/08/2019 - 12:27pm I was OK with Mattison and…

I was OK with Mattison and could understand reasons for him jumping on the DC job at OSU, but this one is a kick in the nuts.

01/08/2019 - 9:14am I'm guessing oddsmakers are…

I'm guessing oddsmakers are bearish on the Irish because they have road games against Georgia, Michigan, and Stanford?

01/08/2019 - 9:12am But I don't think they can…

But I don't think they can compete with Bama or Clemson, especially when all the skill guys on display today are coming back next year.

To be fair, you could say that about every other football team in the country, not just Michigan.

01/08/2019 - 8:57am Uncomfortable?  Honestly, if…

Uncomfortable?  Honestly, if Hoke came into Harbaugh's office to interview for the job, I don't know how Jim doesn't circle around his desk, smack Brady in the head and ask him, "what the fuck were you doing?"

Harbaugh has spent the past 4 seasons rebuilding Michigan from a smoldering wreckage into arguably the 2nd best program in the conference and now we'd bring the architect of that wreckage back into the fold?  Yeah, no.

The only Carr-era coach I'd accept being on the current staff is walking out the door to be the DC at Ohio State, so let's just leave it at that.

01/08/2019 - 8:40am I don't know what the payout…

I don't know what the payout for participating in the game was, but I'd not be surprised to find out we lost money playing that game.

01/08/2019 - 8:36am Who cares if the stadium is…

Who cares if the stadium is empty.  Let them have nice things.

I can agree with this in principle except for all the hand-wringing over "what'll happen to the bowl system" when talk of expanding the CFP to 6,8, or even 16 teams comes up.  It's already been demonstrated that the majority of these games aren't profitable for the institutions themselves, so if the fallout of making the CFP more inclusive and compelling is that Nevada and Arkansas State don't get to face off on Dec 29th, then so be it.

01/08/2019 - 7:41am Michigan didn't look like…

Michigan didn't look like they were fun, fast, and fearless when they were rolling Penn State, Wisconsin, and MSU?  When Harbaugh was running around with his shirt off in satellite camps or firing off pithy tweets at Saban or Urban everybody wanted him to act more professional.  Now your argument is that Jim should have more fun?  It's a red herring to take Michigan at their low point and Clemson at their high point and try to make an apples to apples comparison with regards to program tone.

01/08/2019 - 7:28am You're the one trying to…

You're the one trying to characterize Harbaugh's roster as being loaded with walk-ons and underrated diamonds in the rough; switch was just pointing out the dissonance in that argument.  Alabama consistently outperforms pretty much every other program in recruiting and that has translated into elite performance on the field, but they find their fair share of surprises too.

Cherry-picking Tru Wilson and trotting him out as some kind of symptom as to why Michigan isn't progressing to Alabama levels is the straw-manniest of straw-man arguments.

What happens if his defense takes a giant shit against Michigan next year?

01/07/2019 - 2:44pm Maybe it doesn't go down as…

Maybe it doesn't go down as the highlight of his career, but it's certainly the last chance for him to design and lead a defensive unit.  If that's always been his calling, where his heart lies, I honestly don't know why anyone has a problem with this.  Just because he's leaving to coach at OSU to pursue his calling he suddenly has failed some kind of loyalty test?  Man this fanbase has gotten fragile. 

01/07/2019 - 2:37pm Boy, I'm going to miss this…

Boy, I'm going to miss this face.  Best of luck to you Coach!

Even if the job being offered was better than the one you had and the opportunity of your lifetime?  You'd still turn it down?

Bullshit.

01/07/2019 - 2:20pm It only looks spiteful…

It only looks spiteful because you're choosing to spin it that way.  If Mattison was leaving Michigan to go take over OSU's D-line coaching duties, then you'd have a point.  He's not.  He's taking a promotion for more money.  If the promotion was with, say, Florida State or UCLA, would anybody be hinting towards some kind of subtle messaging between Mattison and Harbaugh?

This whole narrative is stupid.

Best of luck Coach, but I hope you fail miserably on the 4th Saturday of November.

01/07/2019 - 12:53pm UCLA won 88 games in a row,…

UCLA won 88 games in a row, so Michigan has its work cut out for them (is this record EVER going to be beaten?  damn!)

UCLA won 88 games in a row in an era when players were required to sit their freshmen year, leaving school early for the NBA was rare, post-season conference tournaments were unheard of, and the NCAA tournament was only 25 teams deep.  Add the blind eye the NCAA took to Sam Gilbert's shenanigans during Wooden's tenure and it's safe to say that no men's basketball program will ever match UCLA's 88 game win streak.

Let's address the real question here.  Where on Earth did Brian find a Michigan Panthers t-shirt?  That little sartorial gem is glorious.

Owning up to a hasty conclusion and an ill-considered narrative is laudable.  I accept your mea culpa and offer an upvote as a reward.

12/19/2018 - 4:25pm Congratulations, and my…

Congratulations, and my condolences to your wallet.

That said, may your son experience 4 years of great Michigan performances.

He’s a warrior and I’m going to miss his closing speed so much.

We all are, well perhaps not opposing offensive players trying to beat him to the edge, but the rest of us are totally going to miss his closing speed.

12/19/2018 - 3:31pm Dantonio is about to start…

Dantonio is about to start looking very ordinary as a coach.  The mirage that he had built MSU into an elite level program is becoming more and more evident with each passing season.  The rationalizations coming out of RCMB should be amusing to read.

12/19/2018 - 3:23pm I'm still surprised that all…

I'm still surprised that all the "realistic fans" who have been lamenting Michigan's inability to pull in elite 5 star talent haven't shown up to admit the hastiness in their assessments.  I would think some mea culpas would be in order; perhaps an apology to the Board in general for fostering the negative bent it's taken on the previous few days.

I won't hold my breath.

On the bright side, scurvy will not be a concern for these gentlemen for quite some time.

Um, if the "she" was hunterjoe's avatar, I'm guessing it was pretty quick.

I'm guessing it's something like this...

12/19/2018 - 10:03am I don't think Gary and Bush…

I don't think Gary and Bush are the only players who are going to declare early for the draft, so it's probably a moot point.
