I was there and that is BS. It was one of the most classless moves I've ever witnessed. Up to that point in my life I don't think I had ever felt such visceral hatred for one person as I did in that moment. In retrospect I can't believe that I let something like that make me so angry but, hey, I suppose part of the joy of youth is finding things like that important and worth going ape shit over.
LOL, this coming from a kid who grew up in the hood. I'm sure he was scared.
Jailin is a giant douche. End of story.
This. I will never forgive him for this classless act of disrespect to an institution that did so much for me and that I revere. He and Juwan Howard deserve a special place in hell for what they did.. .and the climbing on the broadcast table courtside to taunt the MSU crowd and rub in the scum victiory just prior to rubbing their asses on the Spartan S. For those of you that don't know it was that year... after that despicable display of typical scum immaturity and arrogance that Shawn Respert started the tradition of KISSING the Spartan S at the end of his last game as a Spartan as a sign of how HE felt about MSU and all that it had done for him. My one wish is to find a magic genie lamp so I can wish to be the size of Jalen and Juwan and then bitch slap them to a pulp for what they did. ANY Spartan who "forgives" Rose and Howard for what they did needs to turn in their Spartan card NOW! The only thing worse than what they did is ESPN, DOOKIE V and DIGGER not having the guts to show a clip of that on ESPN prime time. I think most all the media in the country, ESPN included have NO idea what that shit Rose did. I'd LOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVe to see them put that clip up when he is mouthing his crap on a telecast.. I'd pay my retirement fund to see the look on that shits face when they finished showing the clip.. to say nothing of what the studioe suits next to him would think. Five will get you ten that Rose would be FINISHED, Torched, humiliated and fired if they showed that clip.

So you hate beal99?
we've heard about this clip for so long. I can't even remember if I was there or not. It must be out there somewhere?
I watch him on NBA pre-game with Wilbon, Magic, and Simmons
Considering it was after the game and back then cameras weren't as overly prevalent I'm not sure that a video clip of it actually exists. Witnessing it in person I know pretty much any Spartan that saw it went apeshit on those two pieces of crap. I can't say I've ever seen a video clip of it. Just saw it live and in person.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
How could they have no idea what Rose did when he's talking about it on an ESPN podcast?
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
They didn't know it for years.. thats my point.. This is when Respert was with the Spartans.. it was that far back
Thing is ESPN doesn't give a flying fuck. Look at some of the absolute trash they keep employed there including the likes of Douchemond, Louth Holtzth and of course Jailin. This doesn't even get into the likes of Screamin A, Wob and Skip Gutless. I'm sure they know about his ass wiping antics and don't really care because they have low standards.
Who the f*ck said I agree with what he did? It's a link to a story about MSU. I'm a Spartan grad who loves my school and I don't give a shit about any other schools/players, much less have the time to sit around on the internet all day obsessing about them. If you don't want to listen to the story then don't click the thread, go attempt to get laid or something to release some of this steam. It's pathetic old nerds like you on this board who act more like the uptight and anal Wolverines that I've met, and less like the Spartans I know and am proud to be associated with.

Jailin' is a pathological liar, always has been always will be. he can go to hell for all i care.
I used to be a starting pitcher in high school. With that particular skill set, I always keep 9V batteries on hand just in case of a Jalen Rose sighting.
This is what I've never understood. Why didn't anybody stomp him out while he was down there?
Well, gangs and such might be intimidating.
Jalen is a smug piece of shit, just like Kwame was. Kwame ended up on jail, and I am sure it's just a matter of time before Jalen ends up back in jail. Crime is in his DNA. Taking bribes, hanging in crack houses, and drunk driving. Real role model you have there scUM.

I can't give an objective point of view on Jalen because, you know, he went to scUM. But at the time, I was really indifferent about allegiances since I only became an MSU sports fanatic later on in life. I do recall a strong feeling of resentment over the fab five from the stand point that at that time sportsmanship and respect for your opponent was considered to be paramount in sports and more so in college sports and that he and the other four were the antithesis of that ideal. I strongly resent this guy more today because he and some of the others are actually proud of their role in ousting these ideals from the valuation process in sports in general. I think the fab five totally missed this fact and want to credit racism and culture for the reason they were resented. To me they were a big part of the the all-about-me cancer that has overtaken sports since that time. But maybe these things would have evolved regardless. At least I can credit them for being a milestone.
I hate to bring a level headed response to this but I'll try nonetheless. I grew up 5 miles from campus and we had season tickets to hockey and at other various points to basketball and football. I was at that game. I hated the fraud five and still do. I only applied to one school for college and never thought to go anywhere else. I love MSU with every fiber of my being and hate UM with every fiber of my being. With that in mind, I have the following two things to say:
1. I can't remember a time and don't envision a time in my life when, if given the chance, I wouldnt do the same thing to UM's basketball floor or football field. I especially desired to do so when I was in college. Not that I like one bit that he did that to us but I know I'd do the same to them. And this is for all of you who celebrate when someone pisses on the quad. It is just part of the rivarly. Is it classless? Of course it is. Would I do the same thing to them? Yes.
2. I don't want him to like MSU. I don't like SCum. If I had a mic I would be hyping MSU all day, every day. I understand why he hypes SCum all day, every day. I don't expect, nor do I want him to hype MSU. I will say this, he is effusive with his praise of Magic (also, he mentioned Steve Smith and his greatness in the podcast) on the NBA show and anywhere else. Everyone knows where Magic went to school and won the national championship.
Nice. You "love" MSU so much you will drop down to their level and be a public embarrassment to your school. That's some set of standards you've got going for you.
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
No part of that story or Jalen Rose is, or ever will be "pretty cool".
Your a retard.
Bobby Knight "choked" a kid...there's video of that, and he works at ESPN.
Should be required listening to anyone who thinks he's a "decent" guy. Eff him with all the passion Eff I could ever possible give....ever. Senior year for me.
I keep hoping that Bobby will someday choke a few people at ESPN....on the air.
A link to a story about a douchebag and his teammates wiping their ass on our logo at center court? This is not a link to a story about MSU! I didn't bother to open the link, nor will I ever.
Obviously, with your username and response, I can tell you are a young lad. I will cut you a break on your lack of knowledge on the history of Michigan basketball in the 70's through the late 90's. The cheating that began with Johnny Orr and lasted through Frieder and Fisher.
As you can tell from the responses on this forum, most of us who were alive or cognitive during this era have a very strong response to this topic. Why you would think this topic as "cool" is beyond me. I'm sure if you would have linked this podcast on a UM board then you would be enjoying glowing reviews and a lot less criticism.
They wiped their asses on center court!!! I will never, and no true Spartan, will ever forgive this transgression! I'm sure Coach Izzo would agree.
