If you think this stuff is just happening now, I believe you're sadly mistaken. I'd be willing to bet a substantial sum that much of this has been happening for decades...but it's just now that these are seeing the light more and more thanks to our more connected society.

Monkey see...monkey do?

If Knight is being truthful...that makes him a cheater. Why would you take the word of an admitted cheater? :)

I don't disagree. Doesn't make it any better.

One of my proudest moments as a BG sports fan happened after the 88 CCHA playoffs. Me and my crew were walking in the tube outside JLA...Sparty fans are doing the "Go Green Go White" bit...so I yelled "Go Green Go White Third place is all right". They faced much laughter and derision...

I felt like Loyd Bentsen in his debate with Dan Quayle

Haha, Awesome!! :supz:
"Regarding BGSU, I would think their biggest strength is that they never give up, They never slow down and they battle hard even after the other team scores. We have to be on our game and never, ever take the foot off the gas for a second."
~~USCHO Poster
"BG was relentless. It's like they know that a good first pass on the breakout from a defenseman will almost always result in an odd-man rush against them - but they go in anyway and dare you to make that pass. All three of their goals were just grit and effort. That's a team any fan can be proud to support...they give all they've got."

OptionQB wrote:Also, there are pieces of a story floating around that LB Jon Reschke's status is in question as well. Some say that he is gone and others say he will be gone soon. (Allegedly) his girlfriend had relations with an African American teammate and Reschke responded by sending some what has been described as "racist" texts to the (ex-)girlfriend and the teammate. The new couple then posted the aforementioned texts online for public consumption. Sparty insiders have already warned readers that Reschke will not be with the program moving forward.


He gone.

When it rains it pours. Reschke was probably their best returning linebacker. So I think that makes 8 players off the roster since the season ended. Plus the gymnastics doctor investigation. Stuff going on within the MSU basketball program. Things not going so good in E.L.

Dantonio is probably out soon - he built the program against a down Michigan but has no chance now that Harbaugh has M running at full steam. I was sincerely hoping Fleck would wait for the MSU job. It would be insanely fun watching Fleck and his incredible energy recruiting against Harbaugh and his antics.

Yeah...I think Harbaugh's putting some serious daylight between UM and MSU...add in the other recruiting monster named Urban Meyer and Dantonio looks like Aquaman going against Superman and Thor.

Yeah..I mixed DC and Marvel...sue me

Another good one would be that he looks like Dusty Wolfe going up against Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant

Yes, but that's only a mismatch when he's not Doink The Clown. I once saw Doink beat Ric Flair at the Seagate Center. Of course, Flair was at a disadvantage, not being able to move well with his pants down around his thighs for about half the match. Not sure I've ever laughed that hard.

Never saw Flair live...did see Shawn and Razor doing the ladder match a few months before Wrestlemania though.

To further the analogies...Dantonio is John Hilworth fighting Behn Wilson
