eh, not really since CBS and Mlive and MI Sports radio is blathering on about it, even a damn thread on reddit on it. Makes MSU look bad, once again
What is so fun about setting a couch on fire anyways? People are amazed at the stupidest shit.
A few students out of 45,000 or whatever it is lit a couch on fire. Anyone who lets that change the way they think of MSU is a Moran and we should not give a fuck what they think.
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
I would hope not, but it gives the blue wall and buffoons like huge more ammo to feed walvie nation
The way Thad castle described it made it seem like it was an East Lansing Tradition. It happens almost every time MSU loses that big national game in football or Basketball.
why are you guys downvoting him? He's just the messenger
Whoever the hell this "Thad" guy is, what an awful name by the way, is wrong then. It doesn't.
No blame people at the State News for trying to get a AP story....and people here overreacting and starting a thread for the lazy journalist to pick up on.
You're right the social fabric of East Lansing is torn at the seams because of couch fires. How silly that I missed that.
Couches burn after many big games, people don't remember that. It's the riots that I'm sure there were many people on here participated when they were a student.
Overreact much? I'd hate to have been at your residence after any big game loss with you and your buddies rabid fan status.

Lock this garbage thread.
You are an idiot. Why would you want to encourage behavior that makes our university look bad? Most people did NOT participate in riots.
This is just plain stupid.
Eh, the occurrence of three small couch fires, especially anything in the infamous Cedar Village area, is newsworthy locally. The only reason it gets picked up nationally is because MSU always has a few idiots who do this from time to time, so we have a reputation for it.
I'm more bothered by the lack of creativity than the actual burning of the couch. Think of something new for crying out loud. Or do kids actually strive to burn couches like they did back in the 90's?
Look I'm indifferent to couch fires, you get boozed kids and stupid things happen without adults to supervise. I don't encourage riots, that actually hurts the image and growth of MSU.
But the fact that I see so many people place themselves on this pedestal of excellence is incredible. I'm certain that there's people on here who participated and are now condemning it that they've grown up and seen the light.
What about the couch? Are you saying its not a victim? WTF?

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
And this board is a medium where adults and college kids interact. Why wouldnt we want to condemn idiotic behavior when we see it. It does cast our school in a negative light. Yes, many of us have done stupid crap in our lives, that doesnt mean that it was ok at the time because we were younger. Do you have kids? Are you/would you be ok with them making all the same stupid decisions that you made, or worse, just because they are young.
I am not saying these kids need a role model, or a big brother program, but when they do things that make MSU loom bad it is ok to call them on it. However, this is typical lazy journalism and overreaction that seems to only plague our school. oh well
