The Izzone is vulgar in unison? Besides the occasional "bullshit" chant?
if it was up to him twitter would be dead...RIP ta da twitters??
Never said that. I was responding to a question about the Crazies.
Couldn't tell by the quotes whether Izzo was complaining about Izzone behavior or stating that he didn't want the Izzone to act like the crowds at UW and IU. Might be a question for Dan.
Obviously, the Izzone has been toned down in terms of its insults and its vulgarity, certainly since my days as a participant (last 2 years of Jud, first two years of Izzo). It was pretty much up for grabs back then.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
Not saying you did, just wondering if people think that. Some responses make it seem that way. I haven't heard it.
Izzo was the one who got upset when the Izzone was doing personal chants at players. Nothing vulgar about them , so yeah Izzo did help create the Textzone
You got that right...like any of the chicken littles here would ever say the crap they spew about players here to their faces. the most gutless people on earth.
Shut up, dummy. The Izzone was becoming embarrassing. The chants to which you refer were cringe-worthy, un-creative and unfunny.
We lost out to the Cameroon Crazies a long time ago when our students proved they couldn't do anything more creative than could be expected from a "state school". Without vulgarity the Izzone hasn't come up with one creative adaptation in 15 years. Cripes, we still do the "jumping ahhhhhhhhhh" every defensive possession and NOTHING else.
"First down bitch", "WEAAAAKKKKK" and "jumping ahhhhhhhh"... the three cheers that most define the MSU student section since 1995.
I love this place.
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
So does he still want us to win the message boards for our next game or not?
And these days, it appears that only about 30% of the Izzone jumps and yells "ahhhhhh." Is it really that tough for everyone to do it? Imagine how much louder it would be...
Ahh I see the Izzone haters are out in full force today. How many of you wanted to kill yourselves when you heard Izzo praise the crowd after tOSU game?
Oh, and btw, I'm pretty sure Izzo counts tRCMB as "social media", so how about you idiots get off your high horse while you're taking personal shots at the likes of Nix and Byrd.
And as far as swearing goes, I imagine Izzo wants us to cut down on "Fuck those Wolverines" and "Fuck *insert opponent here*, they suck balls!", in addition to the occasional asshole chant we usually save for guys like Eades and Ted Valentine
Will Smith doesn't have to cuss in his raps to sell records.
Izzo was talking to me directly.
Some of my Spartan artwork and Keebdaddy!
A clever, well-thought out chant is 100 times more effective than "asshole." That's the go-to chant for elementary students nation-wide. Maybe if the izzone members spent the same amount of time thinking of real chants that they spend picking out stupid costumes and texting their bffs that they are at the game, this would happen.
Not to discredit, however, the fact that, when directed at valentine, hightower of the white f'er who always t's izzo up, "asshole" is the appropriate term.
Or Bill Cosby doing stand up for 50 years and never dropping an F bomb.
The problem here isn't creativity, it's complete lack of leadership. I had friends who when we had a decent sized group we would break into soccer chants that were repurposed for MSU use that were creative and funny, but that's not going to catch on by chance. If someone who was both creative and motivated to organize the Izzone it could be done, but the leadership in charge now isn't in it to make the Izzone better, just to make it easier for them to have nicer seats because they are lazy, which is the exact opposite of the trait we need in Izzone leadership.
Meanwhile we have 100 internet douche bags telling Nix he is anything but gutless after every game. It is a problem with America, not just MSU or tRCMB.
Remind yourself. Nobody built like you, you design yourself.
This place is hilarious. It is amazing that not only do a lot of people here stake their happiness on the performance on the field/court of a bunch of 18-22 year olds, but also the performance of a bunch of 18-22 year olds watching the game in the stands. Then they come here to bitch about it as if mindlessly rambling on an internet message board is going to change anything. We get it, everything was better back in your day but its not your day anymore. You're old...your day has long passed. I wonder if other fan bases bitch and moan about such petty things constantly? Other fan bases would kill for the success that MSU enjoys and to have a student section like the Izzone and yet you all find a way to bitch about it. Izzone is quiet during a 40 point rout of Southeastern Polytechnical Institute for the Visually Impaired?!?!? OH NOES!!!
I swear some of you hate that your favorite team is successful and just want to be miserable. Get off your high horses.
That isn't to say that the Izzone is perfect, but I place a lot of blame on admin and SAF. Yes there are some changes that can and should be made and I agree with the poster that says that leadership is an issue. SAF is terrible at leading tIzzone. Bring back signs (seriously, why are they still banned?). Bring back band songs that people actually like or just get rid of the band. Lullabies and kid songs during free throws? Also, moar chicks in sports bras.
Well I do so fuck him and fuck you too
Don't forget about those bitching about those doing the bitching....................
or those that are doing the bitching, bitching about those bitching about them bitching.
God I love this place
A Spartan Today, A SPARTAN FOREVER. Through thick and thin, low and high water I strive to be the best Spartan ever.
Of course they do; it's human nature.
As usual, Izzo is right.
Sorry, but there's just no defending the vile crap that is spewed on Twitter, other sites and around here by Spartans about fellow Spartans. "But it's just the heat of the moment" or "The players shouldn't care what I say anyway" are not legitimate excuses.
The good news for RCMBers who think they have a "right" to behave like this is that for the most part they are protected by the people who run this place. Punishment is rarely doled out and when it is it's half assed. People who try to shame posters into thinking before they hit "Reply" by reprinting their own words get censored (see: Cesspool thread being locked). In short, there's no incentive to change their behavior, so nothing will change.
what do swear words have to do with your decibel levels? I think its overblown by izzo, removing the vulgarity shouldn't remove the noise.
Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
Or that decrepit tennis playing clown who wanted Izzo fired and tried to get his recruits to decommit.
Get a backbone before senility fully sets in.
