Nice little quote from Bilas today in the FREEP
Are they on different tiers still? I don't think so," said Jay Bilas, ESPN analyst and former Duke player and assistant coach. "I think Michigan State has built a brand that is on the top tier. For any kid that's breathing right now, for their entire lives MSU has been right there with anybody.
"I get (Tom's) U.P. humility in all this, but let's be honest. Michigan State has to play one of the great programs in college basketball to get to the Elite Eight. And so does Duke."
Hold tight to that line of thinking. It is so unfair for you guys, lmao.
Man, must kill you then that bottom feeder has won a B1G Title and Division title more recently than the powerhouse than is UM.. And what a powerhouse it is too.. 0 B1G Titles in 9 years.. 5 losses last year... screams power to me too..
We really should just scrap the program.. 9 wins in three of the last four years really does scream bottom feeder..
And then there's that pesky 4-1 in the last 5 years thing..
Not too bad for a bottom feeder then huh?
Every once in a while you remind this board how delusion you really are.. thanks for that.
And you don't think there's any delusion by the MSU fans who think that Michigan's most recent season will be the height of their accomplishments under Hoke?
4. How live is the practice? Maxwell was hurt last year in the spring without going live, right? I can see it helping, to a point but if the QB is getting lite up that can cause other problems.
5. Long way to go and none of it matters, play on the field does, as we know.
7a. Don't know, that would be way beyond my wildest expectations for a true freshman.
7b. He has a lower ceiling until he puts on more weight, but I expect the coaches to play to his strength and not his weaknesses.
8. SDE/DT Wormley is getting some praise from Mattison and some of the players. I expect this defense to be playing faster this year. 3rd year in the same system.
Damn. If only we followed up our two best years in school history with a 6-6 regular season. Maybe then we could talk as much garbage as some of you guys.
Who thinks that?
No one expects UM to have 5 losses every season.. but some (most?) also don't think they'll be NT contenders in the next couple years either..
Think there's a middle ground
None of that bothers me, why would it? It doesn't bother you seeing Michigan succeed does it?
I expect msu to rise up every now and then, granted I wasn't even a teenager yet when they made a Rose Bowl. It should happen, sooner or later, and later has been the case for years now...
Bottom feeder, as posted earlier you are in some select company with your rivals Indiana, forks down.
So you and BCS are the only two that talk about seasons and don't include Bowls..
Ah, so bottom feeder is because they haven't made a Rose Bowl recently
Glad you are now giving me reason to call UM basketball a bottom feeder because they haven't made the Final Four in 20+ years.
Thanks for the chuckles today, clown

Also, I meant to ask how your spring practice is coming? Any surprises? Who is stepping up? When is the BTN crew coming?
Year 1) 11-2/6-2 > 7-6/3-5
Year 2) 8-5/6-2 < 9-4/6-2
I think we can all agree on that.
I guess it'll take a sub .500 finish this year for Sparty fans to consider Hoke on the same level as MD.
At least you are finally admitting that about msu now.
And glad, based on your logic, UM basketball is a bottom feeder
Wow.. the bottom feeder had a better 2nd year than Hoke did at powerhouse UM??
You talk about delusion and pull all these stupid random time frames for everything. 9 years this. 5 years this. That is why nobody in their right mind can take you seriously.
Congrats on 1 Big Ten title in 20+ years. Seriously 1 in 20+ years and you honestly think that means anything to a Michigan fan?
You always go off on people about not having any clue as to what they are talking about. Then you go into this crap about Michigan not being a power program based off a 5 year down period. Let me clue you in on a little something. Every single "power" program has had a down period at some point. I challenge you to find me one that hasn't in their programs history. You sir have shown that you have absolutely no clue as to what you are saying and that you are the delusional one.
What are you talking about?
When was the topic is UM is a power program?
Oh gee cope I don't know maybe your whole first paragraph in your post i quoted. Or trying to use the 4-1 thing to validate MSU's program instead of oh I don't know the whole history of the MSU/Michigan series.
Those facts were to highlight that clearly MSU isn't a bottom feeder as XX stated
As a program, of course UM is a power, no one is saying otherwise.
You say it everyday.
Jerry Montgomery is making 325,000 a year at Oklahoma. That is pretty good for an assistant.
You're right, we should have barely lost there instead...
laconophilia is everywhere...
Haha, Drake Harris never even implied that MSU is a bottom feeder, but I love how you derived that from one half-hearted quote of a high school kid.
Everyone stop debating this, a high school kid has already valued MSU's program, so no further conversation is required.
So much winning.
And Bilas is pretty much the biggest voice in college basketball right now.
If you say so
