Michigan State. 2012. A lot of sh#t talking. Watched the Michigan State defense swing at Nebraska fans who were just leaving the packed bar.
Like I said...never seen it. Not one thing, nothing. Not a mean word, not a nasty glare nothing at all.
I sort of have a hard time believing that the "MSU defense" took a swing at some Husker fans at a bar. Even if that did happen, doesn't it sound fishy? Like...that there might be more to it?
What does sh#t talking mean? Like, what does that include?
I would have agreed with you had I not gone to Madison in with a few friends when we were in college in 2011. I had been to multiple away games and never really had a bad experience. The fans might not have been nice, but they weren't completely disrespectful. I would also like to preface this by saying that I had multiple friends go to the 2014 game in Madison and have a great time.
However, when I went we drove all night on Friday night and pulled into a Wal-mart at 3 in the morning to get some tailgating supplies and the first thing we hear is "F#*k you, go back to f#*king Lincoln". We chalked that up to drunk college guys after a night of closing down the bars, but then we went to the Gameday setup and have never felt that uncomfortable at a gathering like that. Not a single one of the Wisconsin students/fans would talk to you except to say ef off and go back to Lincoln. Then at the game we had a guy that had to be in his late 50s or 60s turn around the whole game to tell us how big of pieces of crap we were and that we weren't wanted in the Big Ten. Then when the game was over we had to help an elderly Nebraska couple out of their seats because some of the fans we were around wouldn't let them into the isle with one younger fan almost knocking the elderly man down the steps. After getting throttled in the game we went to the bars and a majority of them were charging Nebraska fans a cover, and once you got inside you wouldn't get served. Finally, we tried to get a taxi and they wouldn't stop for you if you had Nebraska gear on. We even had one taxi drive off with its door open because he didn't realize we were Nebraska fans until we opened the door. But I guess they accomplished something, because I won't ever go back to Madison.
I have to ask...were you or anyone with your group acting like buttheads at all?
Honestly we weren't. We were just excited to see a new stadium and see what it was like tailgating in the Big Ten and such. I will say that towards the end of the night we didn't help our case and we did start getting pretty short with them after going through that for the whole day.
