They were about the 5th best team in the b10.
We cleaned the floor with them at the Brez, major ass whupping, and lost on the final possession at their place.
They got beat up and sent home early in the b10 tourney.
KU performed one of the biggest choke jobs in tourney history to give up what was an easy win, and uf has been over-ranked all season.
um is what they've been since the b10 season started- a team led by 1 great player who is soft in the post and has 2 guys on the wing capable of shooting lights out one game and disappearing for 2 games after. They never passed us on the court or took anything from us, and 9 out of 10 um fans will agree that if we play on a neutral court, MSU wins.
So congrats um, you didn't choke and are going to the final four. We'll see you next season. And we both know you won't be looking forward to the game.
Tough path for them.
Pin this please.
To die in ann arbor is redundant
Well, i would rather be the 5th best team in the Big 10 and be in the Final Four. Dude, your program is the gold standard, don't be so insecure, one year of NCAA success for Michigan does not overwrite 15 years of sustained success for MSU. I get it that it sucks when your arch rival wins, and their fanbase can be insufferable, but c'mon, chill out. And yes Kansas shit the bed down the stretch, but Michigan made a ton of plays as well to win that.
And then they curb stomped the Gator's today (their third blowout win in the tourney).
It does bother me, no matter how much we try to justify it. Whatever, I'll get over it. Life goes on.

Michigan's offense vs. Syracuse's zone is a great match up.
I would have rather MSU got their ass whooped in aa and won by a point at the breslin and be a final 4 instead of sweet 16. I don' t see any other fucking way around it. No stinkin way to rationalize these results.
It's mentalstate lol
Fuck that noise. I was a student during the fucking Fraud Five era. The NCAA should have bombed that renegade dirtbag program back to the Stone Age. I'm pissed off that piece of trash program is in a Final Four. Cheating fucks should have suffered the same fate as SMU football. Fuck them. I hope they suffer the worst loss in Final Four history next Saturday.

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
The question is, how do you really feel?
I understand what you're getting at, OP... And while I mostly agree with the thought, no one is going to remember any of that in 5 years, except for the Final Four.
It is what it is. Yes, I still believe we have the better team... And I do think we got the harder region... But they're in the Final Four, and that's what counts.
Luckily, one year doesn't make a program, and I would still take our program over theirs.
Then, ritual suicide in really your only option.
They are on a great run but they still haven't won it all yet. I don't see anybody beating Louisville now...not even the Cuse, and who knows at this point if the weasels can even get past them.
It sucks that they got a better regional draw as a 4 seed than we got as a 3 but that's life sometimes in big time college sports. One successful year does not make either a great program or a program great. Before the past couple of years the Walvies had forgotten what a championship caliber basketball team was...much less a program. Even should they win it all...and believe me just the thought of it does tighten my colon...it will almost guarantee that Burke, Hardaway, and GRIII all go pro afterward, and when they do the weasels go back to being a middle of the pack program again hoping that they can get out of the 1st round of the NCAAs next season.
We still Have Tom Izzo...arguably the greatest coach in college basketball today. He's not going anywhere for a long time yet and all this will do will motivate him that much more to keep MSU as a top B1G team and perennial NC contender. Today...the Walvies may be ON...but MSU has BEEN ON and isn't going OFF...or AWAY... anytime soon.
In Izzo we trust. GO GREEN!

"I love March!" - Tom Izzo
I'm doing my damnedest to avoid any and all umaa coverage this week and I can't even escape it on the RCMB.
I'm happy the Tigers are playing regular season games and the MLB network is there.
Going to be a looooonnnggggg week.
I'm down in Florida with the family for the week. I'm loving it down here. I get to avoid all the tv shows radio love and newspaper felating that they must be getting.
Enjoy your stay Wags. I am sooo glad I'm not living in Michigan right now and don't have to see all of those Walverine assholes giving Spartan Nation crap. They should just shut the hell up and enjoy this while they can because they may not get back there for a very looong time after the "fresh 3" leave at season's end.
There is no rationalization nor is it acceptable for a scum team to ever go further in the tourney than MSU. Did we have a tough bracket? Yes, probably the most brutal out of all 64 teams.
That doesn't matter for championship teams though.
So yes I'm pissed that they're in a F4. I may consider ritual suicide with the rest of the RCMB if the unthinkable happens.
If anything I hope this becomes the final kick in the balls this program needs to enter that final echelon with the Dukes and UNCs of the world. You know they're not happy with merely final fours . This pissed off program wil make scum regret ever dreaming of what they achieved
I'm not bothered by it really. I work with a ton of U of M grads, there's maybe 25 U of M almnus in my building to about 7 or 8 MSU grads. I'm actually quite happy for them, but then again, they actually went to the school. U of M grads are usually good fans, as is stated over and over, the Walmart Wolverines are the freaking idiots. Have some Walmart Wolverines on Facebook and it's pretty unbearable.
More bothered by laying an egg vs Duke than anything Michigan is doing. To look at it honestly, Michigan has a real chance to win it all. Louisville is a better team, but Michigan matches up decent with them. I give Michigan about a 25% chance of winning it all now.
What a dumb-ass OP. I'd rather have lost to them twice in the regular season if it meant we were in the Final Four now.
Pretending we don't care about Michigan is one of the dumbest trends on this board.
They were bombed back into the Stone Age. Do you not remember the last 18 years?
Ellerbe? Amaker? The lame beginning to the Beilein Era?
Just what level was MSU basketball at before Michigan's cheating scandal?
Do you not understand that much of Izzo's success happened after UM's implosion?
I know you're Nucky and all, but even for Nucky, it's a fucking disgrace to use that user name to troll.
The NCAA did not force Ellerbe and Amaker on to them, you dumb fuck.
Before Michigan's cheating actually broke (for real, not the bogus investigations that found no wrong doing), MSU was already a national champion with two consecutive Final Four appearances (soon to be a third).
Talk about being a whiner....the past is the past.....our football program had problems a long time ago to..do you feel the same way about them being successful? Get over it and get over yourself....they are having a good year and made a FF....does that mean it will happen every year now ? I doubt it..... We just need to take care of our own business and everything will fall into place.....
