MSU fans sure do love to talk about Michigan... Envy is a bishhh.
Honest question for Michigan fans:
Why do you guys jerk yourselves off so much over getting to the Sugar Bowl last year, as if doing so, was proof that you were better than MSU?
MSU and UM finished with the same regular season record, except MSU had a tougher strength of schedule, beat UM head-to-head, and won the Legends Division. Yet UM went to a BCS bowl over MSU. That should tell you all you need to know about the credibility of the BCS at-large selection process. Just call it for what it is -- you benefited from a process that values money and name recognition over on-field accomplishments. Hey, it's a perk you guys get to enjoy, I get that, but at least own it for what it is. The national media certainly did, as that game was roundly mocked and criticized before and after it was played. EVERYBODY knew neither team deserved to be there; it was laughable. And despite the fact MSU played in a "lesser" bowl, they still got the chance to face and beat a better team, in what turned out to be a much more enjoyable game.
And let's face it, the only reason you were even eligible for a BCS bowl is because you didn't even get the opportunity to get pummeled by Wisconsin in Indy. And why was that? Oh, because you lost to MSU.
I guess in hindsight you guys should be thanking your lucky stars that we kicked your ass.

"RCMB: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainry." - some dude from MgoBlog
You guys have put all your eggs in one basket with Duhnard. You go as he goes. We don't need to do that with Maxwell. He just needs to be serviceable and execute out of play action in order for us to win games. He will have the benefit of leaning on a stellar defense, a good running back and an experienced offensive line. We don't need video game numbers from our QB to win.
neither do we
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
I beg to differ. He is your difference maker. In our game vs UM last year Cousins was only 13/24 for 120 yards, yet we won by 14. I'm fairly certain Maxwell is capable of at least duplicating those statistics.
8 months later and sparty is still crying about it. Bottom line for MSU, don't lose to Wisconsin, and don't get rolled by Nebraska or Notre Dame and then you can talk. As it stands, MSU didn't qualify because they weren't good enough.
And you guys DID qualify because you ALSO weren't good enough, LOL. Come on, you have to at least recognize the humor that is the BCS.
Yeah, I like how Sparty jumped on this post. They are definitely enjoying their time in the Sun before Hoke's top 5 classes are on campus and we beat the crap out of them.
some good um/msu stuff here...
here's my take as an osu fan...
msu has braggin rights because they beat um head to head (btw, both um and msu beat us so you both have braggin rights vs us)
whisky won the big ten (and thats all that matters going forward with our new alignment in the big 10)
but now that we have a ccg and neb. has joined us, beating our rival (while still immensely important) is a means to an end...
winning the big ten title and playing for the roses (or natty) is what really matters...
dont get me wrong, osu wants to beat um (and vice versa)...same with um/msu, but who wins in indy (for now) matters most...and if neither team wins the title the i go back to the head to head matchup for 1 yr bragging rights...
I don't know why you guys are under the impression that MSU is going to magically disappear just because Hoke is recruiting well. It's actually possible for both programs to be good at the same time. Crazy concept, I know.
You'd better seriously hope that Dantonio, Narduzzi and co., suffer amnesia and completely forget how to develop talent overnight. That's the only way MSU goes away anytime soon.
Where did I say you would go anywhere? I'm just saying when we get Hoke's kids on campus IMHO we will be as good as Tressel was last decade. You guys might not go anywhere, but you will not be able to be able to compete with a program that recruits that well in full throttle.
So what does it say about UM that they weren't even good enough to to qualify for the B10 CCG?
Yawn. I'll believe it when I see it.
We have beaten a lot of programs that have significantly out-recruited us over the last few years.
xxmgo appears to be so irritated and sore about losing to MSU that he refuses to even fully acknowledge that it happened.
Say it aloud with me;
Two teams met. One team had twice as many points as the other when the game ended. When the fans of said teams talk, this is as far as the discussion needs to go.
The simple fact is that your team forfeited your right to any further discussion when they were flat out handled on national TV. You could have the most valid point in the world (don't worry, you don't), but your right to say it has been taken away.
If I were you, I'd be mad at the players who gave that right away so willy nilly. I mean, they're even saying now that they didn't come to play (aka - weren't ready to try really hard) and didn't play Michigan football (which, of course, is ridiculous, somebody seems to say daily that they are Michigan).
laconophilia is everywhere...
Keep us out of your domestic dispute! Fight with your little bro all you want but we're on the outs.
I am a Buckeye...proof there is a God in Heaven who loves me.
You lost to the worse Buckeye team in a long time. Any argument you have is invalid. By the way, how about you win one of those Rose Bowls and stop making the league look bad. Oh, you want to mention Ohio State's record in Championship games? Go ahead. We have more national championships in the last 20 years than you, we have more rose bowl wins than you in the last 20 years and we lead the series between the two teams overall...as does Michigan. A program I respect unlike Wisconsin. The B1G is run by Ohio State and Michigan (Penn State used to be part of the trinity but recent developments has their membership to the B1G trinity pending). Wisconsin is a nice story now but you will fade to irrelevancy soon. Ohio State and Michigan always have been winners and always will be. Suck it Badger.
Not really. Penn State has only won one Big Ten championship since joining the league, and that one came way back in '94. Hell, Northwestern has won more conference titles than PSU has during that time.
No matter what the NCAA says they've won more championships than that. I still claim the win over Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl.
I see TAMU fans have joined the "We care more about the conference than we do our own team" club.
When your team sucks that bad what else are you going to do??
We have more championships period than Wisky but he only wants to acknowledge everything since 1990.
Oh, I thought you were saying that they had more NCs than Michigan in the past 20 years. NVM
We are college football
Nothing, we are discussing the BCS bowl game. The season as a whole thing.

No, MSU clearly won that game.
What you and other MSU fans don't seem to understand is that there were other games played that lead to whether or not a team qualifies for a BCS bowl game. MSU lost 3 of those games, Michigan lost 1 other game. MSU wasn't good enough to finish qualified for a BCS game.
