Why do MSU trolls think that because there is a 3-4 year streak that it is unthinkable that the team on the losing end have little chance of winning?
If that is the case, I fully expect all MSU trolls to predict Michigan to beat ND. Am I right?
I have to believe that until ND proves it on the field, that there is no doubt we will win.
I must assume that if I see a prediction thread over there that all those trolls will chalk up Michigan as a win or a simple is the appropriate response.

According to MSU fans then, MSU will never go to a Rose Bowl, and Michigan will play in a BCS Bowl every year.
Sounds good to me.
Well, when you put it that way it seems much more reasonable.
No need for that.

MSU has lost touch of reality. They are having their butts whipped by Michigan on the recruiting trail for 2+ years now. They cling to the past (we won x straight), when the Michigan coaches are looking at the future. They beat RR talent, and a schema that does not work in the B10 (as Urbie will find out).
I am more concerned with ND, OSU, and Nebraska, which is our real competition for recruits in the midwest.

Damn did Minnesota make the wrong choice firing Mason. They were 2-0 and had an increddible backfield in Maroney and Barber III. I think that was the best backfieln in the decade when the media was all over Ronnie Brown and Cadillac Williams.
Brown and Williams were held to under 100 yards against the SEC best running defense in 2004 (Alabama) and Maroney and Barber III torched them for 300 yards in the bowl game.
I used to post on bucknuts and was well received for a little while, but after the game, the reception was not so great. I hope you stick around.
Sorry, this is off-topic, but I just can't get over the girl in the middle picture if your sig. Wow.
That is Zetterberg's wife.
Sparty's 15 minutes of fame is about done.
I was just on the RCMB and gave a very sincere congratulations on their recruiting pickup today, and within 5 minutes I was down voted.
Go to the upvote thread, we got you.
When has UM not whipped MSU in recruiting?
If you look at the transfers under RR, MSU did whip Michigan in recruiting after all was said and done at least on defense.
Edit: How can MSU have a higher star rating on defense if this is not true?

to the victors go the bragging rights. Until we win, they get to talk smack. We win this year and I promise u, our fanbase will be insufferable to little brother
Not going to disagree with that, but for what I haave seen over the past 6 months, it is why should I worry, Michigan is no threat, we have beat them the last 4 years and held Denard in check the last 2. There is no way you can predict a Michigan win.
I am just questioning the logic.
When Michigan was winning, I never questioned MSU's ability to win the game, I knew it could be a tossup every year.
I still have terrible memories of plaxico burress just manhandling David Terrell at the line of scrimage ... literally picking him up and throwing him on the ground ... I guess those years of Michigan winning before that WERE HUGE!!!!!!
1- Not really sure you can look at recruiting classes after the fact and then compare- if that's the case- then let's go back and give MSU top 10-15 classes back to when Dantonio took over and recruiting this past graduating class
2- Great question, but it turns out, the starting 11 for UM is higher rated than the starting 11 for MSU.
MSU starting D:
So total of: 37/11 = 3.36
UM- and correct me if any are wrong- going off pre season mag
Kovacs - walk on, I'll put him as 2
Total of: 38/11 = 3.45
I'm a MSU fan (obviously) but consider UM a huge threat
AA is going to be rocking and home field is huge...
Think it'll be a close game and much closer than the last 2 years for sure
This year evens out (with an arbitrary number for Kovacs, without that number, MSU still ranks higher) ... but this is with Michigan actually having wayyy more youth in those comparisons. I am not saying that is a bad thing for MSU at all.
Hell, to even have such a GREAT defense with the players says a lot but I feel the tides are turning, I am not at all trying to downplay. You will have a top 15 if not top 5 defense this year. Replacing a QB and top 3 WRs is tough as well.
we are in general , we definetly appreciate classy fans from any rival that want to have civil discussions. Some smack talk is pretty much a requirement, gota have somethin to do during the long football offseason
Ehh, I kinda see where they are coming from. They embrace the past because they won, we look to the future because we lost. Sure some of them are irrational, but they do have good posters so you can't just lump anyone together.
I honestly see a very low scoring game in AA this year. I think their defense, though it regresses a little bit with the loss of Worthy, is still very good. However with them replacing a whole passing game basically, I see them struggling to move the ball as Mattison will try and lock down on the run (see our gameplan against OSU last year).
IMO the keys to the Michigan victory are stopping the double A gap blitz (I was screaming at the tv because you knew it was coming every time, but because of Worthy we couldn't do anything against it) and limiting their RB play.
Also to all the rival fans that may see this, please come have rational and civil discussions here with us. I love it. I get to know more about other teams and it also makes a long offseason that much shorter getting to think of the games.
