Spartans are not green.

Frustration is at an all-time high with Michigan football, but here are some statistics for all of you to remember before you go judging the University of Michigan after their recent loss to Michigan State this weekend.
  • The University of Michigan was ranked as the 18th best institution of learning in the entire world this year and that places them 1st among all public universities in the United States.
  • Only 54% of graduates from Michigan State University are employed within six months of graduation. Translation: Would you like fries with that?
  • Only 30% of graduates from Michigan State University pursue further study. Translation: lazy slackers.
  • Not a single person who attends or has attended Michigan State University has a full-sized brain, and that's a fact.
That is all. I don't often rant so blatantly in this blog because I know that it is not a clever or accomplished form of writing, but when my team loses to a bitter rival like the Spartans, it becomes necessary. Something similar will likely happen in a few weeks when the Wolverines travel to the Horseshoe for the finale of a massacred season. To reach a bowl now, Michigan must win their final four games, three of which are on the road against ranked teams. Translation: Naaaaht gonna happen...bye-bye bowl eligibility.

wow- Many would take issue w/ statement that no one w/ half a brain ever graduated MSU- aside from a number of politicians, athletes, actors etc, there is always billionaire Eli Broad

you are entitled to your own opinions, just not your own facts.

Hey Anon, are you going on some great crusade to correct the "wrongness" on the internet? If so, I suggest you start with 4chan or YouTube. To actually combat your comment: Athletes; how are they smart? Politicians; corrupt and manipulative. Actors; .... um yeah. As far a billionaires go, you don't have to be smart to be rich, just lucky.
