Spartans to the National Championship game!
Sparties looking awfully tough. UNC looks like they'll win easily at the half. UNC blew us out at Ford Field in Dec with State minus Suton.
It's gonna be an interesting re-match on Monday.
I think another guy was out for us too.
It's going to be very tough, but these guys play with heart.
GO GREEN!!! :p_welldone:
We need to lose out so we can have a shot at Ty Lawson.
I second that......plays with intelligence to go with that talent....
This WAS the championship for me. The FINAL FOUR and making it to the final game! I had a great time at Hooters and in the chat room. I know I'll get picked on but it was an unforgettable night for me.
Check this out from Yahoo..in case u missed it
Michigan State's Durrell Summers has the dunk of the tournament - The Dagge... - NCAA Hoops - Rivals.com
I watched this game in a quiet bar is Seattle, with a bunch of Michigan boys. The place went nuts for this dunk. Sparty all the way. Show those snobby Tar Heels what it means to play with heart.
Chat was great! It's usually fun but it was extra cool last night. Thanks to roscoe & D4E for keeping it open after the Philly disappointment :(

CHAMPIONSHIP BOUND - Michigan State defeats UConn - The Oakland Press News
The dunk was awesome. Powered it past Robinson's attemped block. That told a lot about the heart of the team. At that point, they were not to be denied.
I watched the entire game at a fellow Sparty's house. Great fun. And the Pizza Hut chicken alfredo and bread sticks made it all the better.
So nice to see something good happen for Michigan for a change.
UMMM, THE RED WINGS?????
Of course. That was great.
But were things as bleak then as they are now?
Plus hockey, unfortunately, is not as big a deal in most places as it is in Detroit. The NCAA final is big throughout the country.
March Madness is big in Michigan at the end of decades???
1979 Spartans win NCAA title beating Indiana State
1989 Wolverines win NCAA title beating Seton Hall
1999 Spartans lose in semi finals to Duke, but return to win it all in 2000 over Fla.
2009 Spartans vs North Carolina ?
Spartans played a half court game and wore out the Cardinals, and then switched to a run and gun, outside shooting game to defeat UConn. I like their chances against the Heels.
This green on the site makes me feel like an oddball cause I'm going for UNC baby!! I've been rocking powder blue everything since they made the tourney. Let's Go UNC!!! Bring back to Carolina like 05!!
Team getting all sentimental over the chat WAAH!!!!:D)inside joke)
well i LIVE in NORTH CAROLINA so i need my felloe Spartys to be in the chat and help me out tomorrow Cuz its me against the world down here!!!!
when I go to workout I'll be in Green as well!!!
and I'm drinking from a green beer bottle with LIME!!!
Really? Can you let me in on it?
And CHANGE that avatar to something more appropriate Private Monk!
I just wanted to point out that as of last night, it's down to me and Tha Locstah for the PF.com March Madness Bracket Challenge. Go MSU!!!!
Also, I am living proof that the first rounds don't matter as long as you get the picks right later on. I was living it up at the absolute bottom with TaShaun and Aurora for weeks before totally leapfrogging my way up to 2nd place after the last few games.
