Who's playing in the FF next weekend
Agreed. Not happy they won, but they did. Every now and then the inferior team wins. And gotta give some credit. They're peaking at the right time.
Nothing to see here. But the OP was quite prophetic.
Spartans ...committed to bring Paul Bunyan home in 2013.
Yeah I was 17 when I started college. I guess some guys just take a while to pass Algebra.
21 in a few months. He old as hell

This is such a dumb statement or argument.... if mcgary was the only frosh to play in the Final 4 next week, then you can say dumb crap like this... but since he's not, let's see if he can continue this recent surge in play...
Things happen once every 20 years.
It shouldn't. I have said this many times on this site, one year does not overwrite 15 years of success. Michigan's goal is to have a run of sustained success, like Izzo and MSU have had,
I don't get the insecurity (like yours, i have seen your other posts complaining about the 1989 team). Your program has been one of the best in the country for 14 + years. I get it that when your arch rival wins it sucks, but c'mon, you all bitch about the Michigan fan base being so arrogant (and i cannot dispute that) and some of them being totally ridiculous about some of their comments (especially on the BBall side, as Michigan is now into two years of a good run, versus 15 years for MSU) but the insecurity and the total lack of giving any credit to the Michigan team this year (and this is not all of the posters here, but the majority) is laughable.
Be confident in your program, it is top notch, and coming from a Michigan fan, one that I hope Michigan can emulate in terms of success going forward.
I really think both teams can succeed, maybe not to the levels of UNC-Duke, but definitely to a lot of top 20 games and some big time matchups that the rest of the country wants to watch.
Fixed that for you.
It isn't people like yourself that make this tough for Spartan Nation to accept...it's your Walverine fanbase that makes it unbearable for us. Mostly that's the reaction that you are seeing here from Spartan Nation. We are bitter rivals...at least from our standpoint...and many of us longtime Spartan fans still vividly remember the Fraud 5 and all the cheating of Orr, Fisher, and Frieder, with the monetary help of "Uncle" Ed Martin, and what it did to undermine Jud's program, and Izzo's first few seasons, with respect to recruiting and national prestige...and we will never...EVER...forget that either...make no mistake about that. It's been tough enough for MSU in football to play second fiddle to your school for so many years...particularly during the Bo and Carr regimes...and the last thing that Spartan Nation wants to see now...and have to deal with going forward...is a supremely arrogant rival relegate us again to second fiddle status in our own state in a sport that we have dominated for almost 2 decades.
Congrats on your FF this year, and enjoy both it and hanging a legitimate banner in Crisler that you won't have to remove this time. Your team did what they had to do to get there and deserved their punched ticket. Just don't come to our board right now and expect us as a fanbase to either be overjoyed about it or to act like you guys have arrived as a national championship caliber program because of one highly successful post season run. Right now...YOU ON...but WE'VE BEEN ON...and for a helluva lot longer....and we ain't going anywhere or ready to conceed ANYTHING to you people now or in the future.
Tom Izzo isn't finished...and he isn't going anywhere any time soon. This isn't over...it will NEVER be over. It's just starting.
