I Don't Know, Couches MIGHT BE On Fire

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in ,

As I'm sure you all witnessed, Michigan State got shalacked by North Carolina last night in the NCAA Men's Basketball National Championship Game. The Spartans had a great run for such a young team and I'm certainly proud of them.

Anyway, with big sporting events we often hear about the fans getting a little crazy afterward when spilling out of the stadium and out into the streets. One of the crazier schools, Michigan State has a history of celebrating/mourning their wins/losses in a riotous fashion. I've had brothers attend school there and while they haven't done any car or couch burning themselves that I know of, I've seen some quality pictures.

Well, presumably as a result of MSU's past behaviors, their school's website monitors potential riots, just in case you were sitting at your computer and wondering what the live status of the streets of East Lansing were like.

Well a couple hours after their loss to UNC, their school's Riot Status was raised from a "NO" to a "MIGHT BE." Now, I'm not sure how I should react to that. Does that mean this website lacks credibility and they're just speculating? Or does it mean that there's a huge effing riot outside with people and couches burning to shreds and this status update doesn't want to be entirely truthful so, instead they just give a little smirk and say, "There MIGHT BE a riot going on outside and we're just going to turn our cheek, ok?" I have no idea. You can make your own interpretation, but it's funny to think about (and funny they have this shit up anyway):As for UNC fans back in Chapel Hill, they just had a small gathering around a few bonfires on Franklin Street:
