I'd rather finish in 2nd behind OSU than share with scUM

I only care about Michigan State.
My god that is ridiculous. Huge inferiority complex. I expect better from MSU fans at this point.
Hell no. I know we're better than them, that's why I don't want them being able to call themselves champs.
I believe in embracing the rivalry. Saying um's fortunes do not affect ours is not realistic.
But more than anything, I remember how badly they were cheating for decades, and I wanted their title futility to continue.
I think most people on this board care more about scUM losing than MSU winning. Some of you people are fucking pathetic. If someone told me MSU would win the National Championship but scUM would win the B1G outright I would take that in a heartbeat.

Wow, what a gigantic pussy. You would rather not win a big ten title just because UM gets a share? Who GAF.
OP is the epitome of what is wrong with a lot of this fan base. WTF is wrong with you people who obsess UM all the time?
Yeah, b/c that's exactly the same scenario.
1st comes MSU success
(A distant) 2nd comes UM failure.
MSU being tied for 1st place with UM is a thousand times better than being tied with them for second.
Get your priorites straight.

Here are the in-conference schedules for the three co-champs (teams only played once):
MSU: Illinois, PSU, NW, Iowa; sum of RPI rank = 408
OSU: Iowa, PSU, Purdue, Minn; sum of RPI rank = 407
UM: Minn, Wisc, Iowa, Neb; sum of RPI rank = 379
MSU played the toughest schedule. Every team we played twice is going to the tournament. Michigan didn't have to play the RPI #20 team twice. All 13-5 records are not equal. We get dealt the toughest hand with the least experienced team and worked hard for that co-championship. I don't give two shits about UM basketball. Our team deserves a banner for this season, and the fact you want to take it away from them just so UM doesn't get one is terrible. You are not a good fan.
Then beat them in AA.
We didn't and we get what we deserve: to share the title with them.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..

You're certainly entitled to your opinion. I think people who are scared to embrace the rivalry are the ones who are pussies. You remind me of $aban.
I am pissed scUM got a share and mad that Matta got a 3 peat.
The OP's thought is the little brother complex. Until you stop caring more about michigan than michigan st. there will always be the inferiority complex label. I'm glad it seems only a few share this thought.
What this tells me is next year we should get a break in the schedule over scUM.
ot tied for last!
Meh, I am obsessed more than most and I'd rather raise a banner than not. To win at least a share given where Korie and Chris put us last year, I'll take it. Do I like it? No but this team is still a champion.
I just wish UM would have had to go to Kohl...

You are a pathetic little loser.

This. I wish we could do a self purge of all pussy ass MSU fans that obsess over UM. They really need to seek professional help.
In the dictionary under self-loather you will find a picture of yourself homie.
You care more about um losing than MSU winning. Jump off a bridge already.
I'm pissed they have a share of the title, but MSU hanging a banner is way, way more important.

The UM Little Brother dig is stupid, but in the case of the op and the fools upvoting this nonsense, it's earned.
This has to be one of the dumbest post in RCMB history. I am sure the players hate SCUM more then you do and I guarantee that none of them would rather not be a big ten champion just so U of M doesn't get a share of it.
I don't think this is true. I lived through the bo years, and the freider-fisher-ellerbee cheating decades.
I love how wanting to keep um crushed under our heel makes me a pussy. Whatever, fellas.
Except that's not what you want. You seemingly don't care what happens to MSU as long as UM doesn't win. That's stupid and very pussyish.
