I'm sorry, but anyone that plans to root for Indiana will only perpetuate the stupid "little brother" moniker. I'm rooting for Indiana to lose, not for Michigan to win, though. Let's not get that twisted. Forks down!
I've kind of fallen into this camp. I'm okay with 2nd place. we didn't beat IU so we don't really deserve to be tied with them....and I'm not a fan of backing into banners. 2nd place is fine, gives us the 3 seed in the BTT where we'll beat Iowa again to get to the Semis and then see what happens.
And it WOULD be hilarious if the best team in 20 years in AA STILL couldn't get a share of the title. and even worse fell to a tie for 4th place with the Vadgers. In the end IU at 1, OSU/MSU tied for 2nd, and Mich/Wisky tied for 4th is actually how the conference should be ranked after all the games anyway. No shame in that.
Not to say I won't be happy if Michigan somehow wins that game, but rooting for them? Fuck that. We had 3 chances to get that big win ourselves and failed. So it goes.
Yes my post was quite a conundrum. I should have said "never say what you said in the title of this post".
This is pretty reasonable. I still want that banner, though.
Exactly. I'm not rooting for fucking SCum. I'm rooting against IU. I'll cheer IU's missed shots but I'm not rooting for those rat bastards. Fuck them. And when IU loses, I'll say fuck you blue and go enjoy our conference title.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
Give MSU the 3 seed for the B1G and a better chance at taking home the tourney banner by not having to face IU until the championship game at the earliest and also hope for somebody like Wisconsin knocking them off beforehand The only way I would root for scUM over Indiana is if they are playing each other in the semi-finals so that MSU can get another chance at those arrogant aholes from Ann Arbor this year!!
I'll be having a beer at the Roadhouse waiting to go over to the Bres, and I'm sure I'll watch the game.
I'll be fine with either result. Banners fly forever (except in Ann Arbor, Kentucky, or Memphis), but I would kind of like to see their "legendary" team come up short.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
Sorry, but I love MSU more than I hate UM
A Big Ten regular season championship is a zillion times more important than a Big Ten tournament championship. I hate Michigan as well, but this is just stupid.
I see this as a win-win,
One hand: Michigan loses
Other hand: MSU wins a share of the BT
I choose getting drunk and not giving a F%#*!
Not when it's shared with 3 others. Also I think it's important for a better seeding. Just my 2 cents and since the team I decide to root for will have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on the outcome then I don't really care if you think it's stupid
It's not about Michigan. We lost any claim to the title when we lost to Indiana a second time. I don't care about backing into a 4-way share.
Time to go get a different banner.
I could care less whether it's a shared title. This conference has been hell to play in, and as a result it's been nationally recognized as the best conference in the country. MSU is also the only B1G team that hasn't lost to a sub-.500 conference foe yet(In conference play that is)
The seeding argument is weak because we're going to have a battle on our hands regardless of who we play. OSU, UM, and IU are all damn good teams and have proven they can beat us. Teams like Minnesota, Illinois and Wisconsin won't be an easy win either.
Would rather the Hoosiers win it outright than Share with um-AA. For the second year running. Screw the Blue.
My Blood Runs Green.....
It wouldn't feel the same considering IU swept us
Imagine the outrage on this board if the roles were reversed
Rogue Leader= Obese coward who didn't attend MSU and has no college degree
More like Go Blew!
I want them to win on Sunday, which means they will F it up. I will never say those 2 words together.
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
A four way tie is like having a three way with your twin sisters.
Ill wait for fletch to tell me what to think.
UM vs IU= classic no lose situation.
Go Blue? Nah just kidding go F yourselves scum fans!
i only care about spartans --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqsAJQc-NCY
MSU lost to Minnesota, they are a sub 500 conference foe
I'd rather have to face IU in the Championship than the semi-finals. The ultimate goal is the NCAA's, and they can improve their seeding by getting further in the conference tourney, and the easier path for that is a 3 seed instead of the 4. Also what if the committee decides between UM and MSU for a 2 seed, if UM beats IU that will give them the edge probably.
Rooting for Indiana because if they win (and we beat NU) we still have a chance for a #2 seed in the BTT. If scUM wins we are a #3 at best in the B1G tourney. Plus...fuck them.
I may hope that IU losses on Sunday, but I won't use that phrase.
Sparty is our mascot, we are Spartans.
Do we even hang B1G Tournament banners?
