Big Thumbs Up for Michigan State

Back in my collich days, the Michigan State band had a bunch of insanely overweight women in one-piece bathing suits twirling flags and feebly attempting to do leg kicks and the like.

I noticed at Saturday's game that they have hence replaced them with dudes in traditional band uniforms.

Good idea.

You're surprised that the MSU co-eds were corpulent and wore one piece stretched bathing suits?

After all, it IS an agricultual school! MOOOOOO!

Does Purdue still have the Golden Girl? Way back, I think there was some kind of drug scandal and that tradition may have disappeared.

Didn't Vandy have some bathing-suit wearing baton-twirling silliness, too?

Back in 1960, the Golden Girl did a real sexy bump & grind and the good C.S.C. fathers had a shit fit and told the PU band to tone it down two years later.

There was a drug scandal a few years later, but as far as I know they still have the golden girl and the silver twins.

Spartan Lore dictates that all women who attend MSU are hot, and all who attend Michigan are ugly. Clearly, you are in the wrong for insinuating that any Spartan girl was unattractive.

All Spartans also got admitted to Michigan, but chose to go to State because they liked the atmosphere better or because State's program in their intended field of study was better than anything UM offered. Such is the power of Spartan Lore. Get to know it.

Didn't MSU start out as an agricultural school?

Actually, the bit about Sparty hotness is true. But only the attractiveness bit. If you replace the "chose to go to State because of the atmosphere or the quality of their program" with "chose to go to State because they're straight up whore of babylon style sluts," you're a lot closer to the truth. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Back to the band escorts. I think thatcan be attributed to the particular and undeniable attraction offered by the chance to wear a one-piece and march with a band. In my experience, this opportunity proves irresistable to a particular caliber of woman at nearly any university. And by caliber I mean circumference. And by circumference I mean large.

The MSU co-eds I knew when I was at ND actually were "whores of Babylon", bless their hearts

Wayback in the mid 70s as an ND student MSU's coeds were quite alluring.

The Golden Girl, the Girl in Black, and the Silver Twins traditions are all alive and well. (in the case of 3/4 of them, much to the chagrin of the viewer)
