I think the only people they consider Wolverines are the athletes. O_O
How did that subject come up and what exactly did they say (if you remember)?
the original term was coined for those Downriver UM fans who refer to themselves as "Wolverines" and insult the education that is given at MSU (MooU, If you can't get into college you can always go to State, etc), yet have never set foot inside a college classroom themselves.

and definitely proves you're more arrogant and childish if you truly believe that.
So please go back to my post, and let me know if i'm a Walverine? Thank you, Sir!

I attended a rather popular school based in Northern Florida, you can guess which one I'm referring to. I'm just curious as to what makes teams with inferiority complexes (i.e. MSU, FSU, Texas A&M, etc) tick.

who do you root for when UM plays PSU? i can't fathom how people go to one school, yet cheer for another. I go to MSU, and MSU is in my blood. it doesn't matter if i grew up a UM fan, or if all my family graduated from UM, MSU is and will always be a part of me because i'm having the best time of my life here.
I don't understand it either, but that's not for you or anyone else to decide.
I could go on and on.
MSU will simply never match up.....to any of that.

I must be the walverine. I went to work straight out of high school skipping college on my way to success. My first UM game was against Ohio in 1979 and have attended a good 4 dozen games since. If I had to do it all over again I'd have had the ambition in school that I have had in the real world. Life has been good. Degree or no degree personal success has to do with having the right attitude. I did attend UM dearborn but didn't finish. The long work weeks and classes combined got old.
you sell drugs?
Right. If you really attended a 'popular' school in northern Florida why wouldn't you simply name it? Ashamed? Posting undercover? Don't remember the name?
No I don't sell drugs, lol! There has always been plenty of opportunities for people who believe in going out and giving 110 percent every day. If you lack motivation nothing else really matters. Right now I'm the plant manager at a small machine shop, roughly 60 employees. We do aerospace, heavy truck, automotive, and anything else that pays. I've been learning for 20 years how things are made. I'm and electrician, programmer, toolmaker, and engineer, just not on paper. With those skills finding a job is fairly easy because the lack of skilled people out there is astonishing. In the small business sector the only thing that really matters is whether you have the knowledge required to make the business money. A small business can't afford to pay the big salary a degree requires then spend another 2-3 years for the person to learn the job. You have to have the skills immediately othwise it's a bust. The big boys can play by the traditional rules and go that route due to the fact that they can absorb the short term loss of OJT. I'm happy not having to go through 5 supervisors to be able to fix a problem and to be able to innovate on the fly. I don't get millions of dollars to throw at a single project the way they do at the big boys but buy the same stuff at auctions for pennies on the dollar. The coming up with the solution on a limited budget is the fun part. If only the government thought that way. Some day I will finish my degree but for now I just don't aspire to work for a big company. I don't want to play by any rules.
This is what I know for a fact downriver. My cousin went to MSU and got his degree in liberal arts with a B/C average in High School. I don't believe it's possible to attend UM AA with a B/C average. Judging by the comments on the Red Cedar board I'd say most downriver people have more in common with MSU fans than UM fans. I just moved back here from West Chester, Ohio and MSU fans are very similar to OSU fans in terms of overall rudeness and flat out hatred. I moved into a beautiful house here two months back and the place was an absolute mess. The lady at Lowe's told me welcome to Downriver, lol. On day two we were behind some big UAW member pick up truck with a pair of silver balls hanging from the trailer hitch. My wife asked what the hell was that and where have you taken me to? I explained, hillbilly heaven. How you know you are back Downriver is when you are out golfing on a golf course along a road and people are screaming things at you out the window of their car as they ride by. No other place I've ever lived is like this, lol.
when did they play Ohio that year? I'm looking at their schedule and the only OCC games they played were against Notre Dame, Kansas, and Cal.
Walverine describes behavior more than anything else. It is the fan that insults MSU's education, but have no/lesser college degree. They say Michigan will win because "Their Michigan". They think WalMart Wolverine is childish and immature, but "Ohio" is the greatest thing ever. Every fanbase has asssholes, but Michigan has a ton of them and we have a name for them.
This pretty much sums up why MSU can't stand UM. People from that university genuinely believe that cheering for their sports team makes them better human beings than people that cheer for MSU. It's a little nauseating.
Also, if you're really that superior, why do you need to constantly remind yourselves of it? That reeks of insecurity. If you were so obviously better, you'd let the fact that you're better speak for itself, rather than finding it necessary to loudly and consistently profess to everyone how you don't care at all about MSU.

I'm not trying to be a dick and insult your education here, but I believe you meant to say "They're Michigan." Their = possessive, they're = "they are."
exhibit A on a non-college graduate trying to downgrade MSU's education.
No YOU"RE trying to be a dick
Well, I'm sure you know what I'm trying to do better than I do.
BTW, contractions utilize an apostrophe, not a quotation mark.
MSU fanbase = lol
Just deal with it........drops shades...
Yeah being a grammer nazi is always a great way to prove a point.
