Too bad Michigan already has two losses and the season is going to be mediocre at best...

Lokt, I am only pulling your chain. I have always enjoyed my visits to MSU. The girls were much friendlier and better looking then the granola crunching liberal with the hairy armpits back in Ann Arbor.

Actually I dont remember some of my visits to E Lansing. One night I spent the entire night in the Sparrow ER because my buddy punched a wall after fighting with his GF. I died laughing because the guy in line before my buddy broke his leg. I was talking to him and he was scoping out a girl and crashed his scooter into a parked car.

I actually some summer classes at MSU one year. Hung out a lot at the Cedar Apts. Hundreds of chicks in bikinis has a certain draw.

First week on the job I asked "Why is that an AG school has artificial turf on the football field?"



However there was a decent pizza place in East Lansing though.

Congratulations.
I thought MSU had a chance, but OT is always the choker.

And, yes, the girls are better at MSU.
At least we have that.

Unfortunately, MSU is more than an AG school.
We're also one of the preeminent turf schools.
When the World Cup came to the United States, they were playing on grass engineered and grown and MSU. And yet, we play on the fake stuff.
Shameful, isn't it.

I was under the impression the astroturf was put in to keep the cheerleaders from grazing during the game.

I brought up the fact that MSU engineered the grass that was used INDOORS at the Silverdome for the World Cup games yet the stadium is still using turf. Did I get an answer? Nope.

IIRC, the WC grass was specifically engineered for low/artificial light conditions. The grass was grown in hex-boxes and travelled throughout the US for the WC. Also, the stadium at MSU isn't a bowl in the ground like UM, so the wind blows right through it and really plays hell with the real grass combinations they tried. I still wish they'd get the right combination.

uhhh...I'm pretty sure that the grass is real at Spartan stadium now...? And has been for a couple years.


Yes, many good times happen at MSU, despite a frustrating football team. already looking forward to the next game.

At least you have B-ball. Used to have hockey until we took that from you too.

Completely different team with Hart out there...wow...Henne looks reborn.

MSU is no slouch team, either. This was a huge win for Michigan.

Congratulations!

Looks like the grass was put in just prior to the 2002 football season, when they switched from their 8 year old artifical turf that was "worn out"

I worked at MSU from 1995-1996 the turf would have been nearly brand new then, and I was completely justified in mocking the school AKA my employer for having artificial turf in their stadium when just the prior year, 1994, their real grass was highlighted during the World Cup games.

Is it the Engineering building that has Maize and Blue as components of it's exterior design?


Funny stuff!

Exciting games two years in a row though.
Link Posted: 10/1/2005 5:51:40 PM EDT
I went to the WC and remember seeing the hexagonal plots of grass in the parking lot. They would leave them out there in the sun then take them back in. They even had guards patrolling the area and MSU smurfs running around checking the turf.

It was an awesome game. Both sides played well and we stopped a top teir offense. Smith can win the National Championship and will still get fired if he keeps losing to UM.

I thought i remembered seeing real grass grown on the field because I was down on it last year for the MSU ND game.

I spend more than a few hours a day in the engineering building. I can recall some blue, but it's mostly green with tannish brick. I don't remember...i only see the exterior about once a day, when I'm walking into the building for my mind-numbing 8 am. I sure don't look back at it at night when I leave.

I worked across the street in the dump attached to what was the Urban Planning and Lanscape Architecture Building at the time. The snobby big wigs in the department got their fancy offices in the Communication Arts Building.

If I ran MSU there would be no blue on campus buildings/vehicles/etc at all.


How deep the hatred for UofM is at MSU, I did a series of panoramic photos for the basketball office as they wanted a new large (8 feet wide if not more) print for their wall. The best photo was from a game vs UofM (MSU crushed them in that game) with Izoo in the air, feet well off of the ground, after one of his excited jumps they REFUSED to have anything UofM in their office so they settled for a lesser quality shot done by one of my staff photographers at a different game.
