Awesome. Thank you.
Please allow myself to.... bump myself.
The P.S. hold true. We have pulled even with MSU (although historically, they still out pace us a bit for now) during their Izzo years. And, the future looks bright.
We have some great players coming into the program, sparty has... .
Disagree, I say we are about even historically, while, depending on who leaves on our team, their program may be in slightly better shape currently. Sparty really needs to pick up some players in the 2014 recruiting class to even hope to stay ahead though.
Izzo looks old, tired and worn down. Time for him to start thinking about retirement before he fouls up his legacy.
I think the refs are finally sick of his incessant whining also. However, next year they will likely have almost their entire team back. They will be a very good team.
None of their guys are going to the NBA?
Harris and Payne could possibly go in the late first round, but seem more likely to drop to the 2nd round, I doubt either of them leave.
So it seems historically its not that different... and they are at least even now.
This does not bode well for them.
My MSU relatives are acting a lot less confident today at the Easter dinner.....for good reason.
I posted about all the MSU relatives that would be at Easter today in another thread. Amazing how disinterested they were in March basketball today.

Let's recap the last few months from a Sparty perspective:
Your team sucks.
Burke is the only player who might possibly start for MSU.
Beilein is a mediocre coach at best
nice cupcake OOC schedule.
You're gonna suck next year when Burke and Hardaway leave.
McGary is old.
You haven't beaten a top 20 team
Much easier schedule than msu
Michigan's in the bonus already?
Refs suck. Delaney wants UM to win.
You haven't beat a top 10 team."
#1 rank in February = September Heisman.
We're still the dominant team in the state. Izzo.
Michigan peaked too soon. 6-6 in last 12 regular season games.
Prepare for another early tournament departure.
Tommy Amaker > John Beilein.
SDSU is gonna beat you in the first round.
VCU is gonna run you off the court.
Beilein needs a Morgan-n-McGary lineup to beat Kansas.
Florida is too athletic.
Next year we're primed for a championship run.
That about sum it up?
I think they have McGary is old in every month, but outside of that it is spot on.
I fear for some of those people if we win the whole thing
Must be hard for MSU to keep up the 'McGary is old' comment from their couches. Err ..... their burning couches.

I'll be honest; if I were you guys, I'd just celebrate the big victory tonight!
Steve, what do you mean "just" celebrate it? Can't we both celebrate tonight at the the same time as admiring the status of the current regime? Why are you being honest with us that we should not do both?
There is still work to be done
Hey, if you wouldn't mind reminding me, what's the MSU basketball team doing next weekend?
Is this serious? You are kidding me right? If this is true then we have caught up to you in football.
Michigan State University is the university of Michigan
This thread is not based on making the Final Four. it was started before the ttourney. it is based on a LOT of factors.
As for football.... three years of equal success against Michigan in football during the best regime to ever field a team at Michigan? And bringing in an equal level of talent for the future?
If that happens, let me know.
I will eat my hat and declare the MSU and UM football programs to be on current equal footing (i. e. the current gap will be closed.)
Otherwise it is a hack analogy to make you feel better

A lot of factors? Like you have a good season? Do you honestly think if you asked anybody outside the state if Michigan was an equal program to MSU they would not laugh in your face? If NC State goes to a Final Four next year do you think they will be on equal footing as North Carolina.
We have 6 Final Four
7 Elite Eights
A tournament bid for 17 straight years or something like that (2nd longest in the country)
More Big Ten Titles then I can count
2 national title game appearances
Team of the decade according to SI
Yet you go to a Final Four and everything is settled.
If you won a Big Ten title 2/3 years in football
Rosebowl every other year
Won a national title
Went to another title game
and SI put you on the cover saying "Team of the Decade"
then we go to a RoseBowl next year and we called ourselves even, you would laugh in our faces. You have a longgggg way to go. No doubt this is the first step, but you need 4-5 more years of better seasons before we can begin to talk. I can't even believe you guys could talk yourselves into this argument. Very impressive.
