I know we're all supposed to flame anything Michigan State, but Delvon Roe would have been a beast if he didn't have such bad knees. He was a consensus 5 star who reminds me a lot of the kid Dawson they have now except even more of an inside player. I'm a big fan of his and he's in no way a scrub, just never got a fair chance.
With that said, I cannot wait until we beat them tomorrow night on their floor. My one month ban just ran out over there but I'm pretty sure I'll be getting another one after tomorrow.
The crowd will be bonkers. The players amped. National television. Big time relevant game. Really the first MIchigan State-Michigan basketball game to be of interest to the rest of the nation in nearly 20 years because of how crappy Michigan has been. In the end Michigan State takes care of business.
Seriously, 6 of the first 10 threads that aren't pinned over there have to do with Michigan. Yet they aren't obsessed, and I've been told many times that Wisconsin is there much bigger rival. The little brother syndrome is so damn strong in this rivalry.
The board has thousands of posters. I don't read or participate in any of those threads. It only takes one person to start one.
It was no insinuation towards you, just toward your fan base in general.
Prior to last year, I did care about the Wisconsin game much more, if I'm being completely honest. But three things have happened since then.
1. MSU started beating Wisconsin with regularity.
2. UM beat MSU 3 of the last 4.
3. UM got good.
For those of us that wanted a better bball rivalry, I'm stoked that it looks like we could have one for the foreseeable future. It sucks that it means we're more likely to lose the games, but is awesome that our games are talked about on a national stage now.
I hope we catch you guys. I really do. Those Final Fours pale in comparison to a week-long #1 ranking. We humbly kneel before our benevolent overlords in Ann Arbor.
I don't know, can you compare from the MSU perspective? I would search for your comments, but the last time MSU was #1 I don't think this site or Twitter existed.

I'm not really feeling this rivalry week thing in hoops. I mean we play MSU again in like 3 weeks don't we? It's just a regular season game as far as I am concerned. I think it's a game we need to win primarily because we lost @Wisconsin and #1 seed is in question, but other than that, if we lost at Breslin and won at Crisler, it wouldn't really irk me that much.
Good one. Being #1 for a week will always trump banners. [rolleyes]
But being Big Brother lasts forever
"Those Who Stay...Will be Champions"
I see a banner hanging up in Crisler right now from last season. So I guess we get both, sweet.
You need to disguise your trolling a little better.
Only took you 23 years. Congrats!
Good luck tonight UM. Should be a close game that comes down to the final couple of possessions.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
I wasn't aware that it was possible to troll on your own board.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
Yup, luckily that streak is done, just like the one without a #1 ranking, which was the original point of discussion.
Indeed it is.
Sparty has numerous streaks that are still intact...
14 years no BCS games
158 years of being lil brother
24 years no Rose bowl
11 plus weeks of being ranked lower then Michigan this year and counting....
12 straight losses to Michigan at one point still the longest streak in the series for both teams
Aww, the mods were so fast at deleting the troll that my awesome response wouldn't post.
Somebody's on the ball tonight
If you're talking about last years B1G regular season champions, they have the same one, and another from the B1G tourney. And another for the sweet 16 (do you hang banners for that?). And they are up 30 right now. Some of you really need to stop talking, especially about rankings.
