I avoid 97.1 until six o'clock when Jamie and Wojo come on. They are a zillion times better than Mike and Terry...and the disgrace that is the morning show with Stoney.
Actually it was Drew Sharp that called out Hill, Torbert and Anderson as "chokers" and losers.
They then promptly went to a final four. Before that I had never heard a Sports talk show host call out college players like that. It made me realize two things. 1) Beat writer's are probably the only writers that have even an iota of knowledge about the team they cover ( except for Mike O'Hara who never even had that in regards to the Lions). 2) College allegiances run deep
and over time any writer, entertainer or expert will "dig the spur deep" when they get the chance to rip a rival.
Anybody who listens at work should check out "It is what it is" on ESPN 96.1 that can be found on iHeart Radio @ 3:00. Sean is more of a regular guy on the radio. He has a genrally moderate take on things and the show has a lot of comedic moments. Really good hockey talk when they have it.
During "Pick 3" one contestant decided to combine the Detroit Red Wings and Taco Bell. Can you deny that???
I will never understand all of the Valenti bashing. The one guy who reps our school in this entire media market and yet everyone chooses to bag on him constantly.
He reps MSU like a new york bandwagon bag of dicks reps the Yankees. If they win he's a big fan, if they lose everyone should be cut and the coach waterboarded.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
Probably because, in my opinion, he is more of an embarrassment to MSU than someone who represents the university well.
I don't believe Valenti is even an msu fan. He sucks off scum when they're good and bashes us constantly. 97.1 is the worst station and the fact that walmarts call in every minute makes it even more disgusting.
To die in ann arbor is redundant
I liked him until he went off on Mel. Guy is a jerk.
That's not his take at all. His take is that nothing is ever good enough and he is never satisfied.
Valenti is a MSU fan. The problem is most of the people on this site expect him to be a MSU homer, which he is not. There is a big difference between a fan and a homer.
yea, the NY bandwagon douche is an intricate individual.
He rips stuff from here all the time. Hell, his show rips material from ticket texts. He has used a ticket text of mine as though it were his original thoughts. I'm sure he's not the only one that pulls this stuff but it is lazy radio. You're right though. If I'm driving I listen and marvel at the obsurdity.
GTFO. There's also a difference between being a realist and pessimistic douche pile.
The bball program bottomed out in december of 08 according to Mike. Try and explain that piece of shit away.
You are right, I think it was back when he said this team sucks and was going nowhere. This was right in the middle of Lucious being forced to the point because of an injury by Neitzel of Appling. Can't remember.
I got news for ya. He's more anti scUM than pro MSU.
I don't care about those topics, but is that your evidence for him "handing the B1G to Michigan"? I haven't heard him make any prediction about the Big Ten other than it will be a dog fight and Indiana, Michigan, and Minnesota are in the top tier. I think he mentioned that an MSU win in Madison would mean they enter that tier in his opinion. I don't see what's so outrageous about that opinion.
This. It really is this simple. Thank you.
Nobody who reads tRCMB should be surprised by what Valenti does and says as a supposed Spartan - it's simply a radio version of the troll schtick you see from at least a dozen posters on this board or any other.
Like about 10k lazy sports radio hosts before him he takes the easy route to generating attention by espousing positions he knows will be unpopular to his audience. Same thing a Tanfan or other RCMB trolls do by coming to an MSU board and bashing MSU.
His brand of radio really makes you appreciate someone like Dan Patrick who does it the right way instead of cutting corners and trolling.
But I need to have my opinion validated by a guy whose qualifications for having a sports talk show are that he likes sports and has a microphone.
Speaking of which, why don't we all hang on every word that comes out of Dave DeMarco's mouth? He's just as much an expert as Mike is.
His Giants have won 2 of the last 5 super bowls and he still thinks Eli Manning sucks.
I wish I knew what I did to piss you off...so I could do it again.
careful Pervis. Jack Passion will be here any minute as tanner backup.

Guess what, in my posts (reread them) I dont give a shit what Mike feels about the B1G championship. Im growing tired of the show because its turned into Lazy radio.
Bait Walverines to call in, bash msu to get msu callers. Bait Red Wings fans, thats the whole show. You didnt address that at all you change the subject
You sir, are a steaming puddle of stanky poon juice. I loathe you.
Good day, sir.
