purdue fans don't exist. At least not football ones. Their stadium is consistently empty, usually other teams fans take over their stadium. Just kind of a gloomy ugly looking environment.
Every time they come here, there aren't many of them at all. I remember seeing 1 outside the stadium all game day.
Has there been any indication that another school might field a Varsity Lacrosse program? Apparently without six there is no conference affiliation. No offense but there are probably 10 High School teams in our area that could beat the teams from the MCLA,so it will probably take Michigan several years to be on a level with other D1 teams
more importantly...WTH is on your truck? A raccoon?
Actually, no one really complains about Purdue fans. In fact I'm not sure when was the last time I, or any Michigan fan, saw one. They seem to be a civil bunch, but maybe the engineering course loads and depressing football keep'em down.

I know that it's going to take awhile. Take a look at Michigan's 2013 schedule (attached pic). They sure aren't taking the easy way to the top. Usually programs transition to the NCAA or take a few years to start their program. Michigan went straight from the MCLA to NCAA and played with club players last year. Had a 1-13 season.
It's just exciting being apart of all these firsts in Michigan Lacrosse history. Being one of the first season ticket holders, seeing the first meeting between Michigan and ohio and being at the first Battle at The Big House will be something I'll be able to say to my kids and grandkids someday.
I'd say the next B1G team to add men's lacrosse would be northwestern. They have a dynasty at the women's level, already have the facilities.

There are attractive girls in Ann Arbor. Just that East Lansing has much more of them. My parents are Michigan alums but I am much more familiar with EL as it's around the corner from where my mother currently lives. Really sad that the Post is gone, but Harper's is my favorite spot.

Kate Upton is a Michigan fan. It's been well-documented.
Casey Anthony, famous baby murderer, is an ohio fan. You decide.
Kate Upton isn't sitting in the back of a truck like Cool Hand Luke's mom in a Michigan bikini.....

What's a Purdue fan?
Purdue fans are like some rare species you see on a National Geographic documentary about endangered species narrated by David Attenborough saying "The rare, elusive Purdue fan has never been caught on film before today and is barely known to science..." They're basically non-existent, I don't think a gathering of more than 10 of them in one place has ever happened in history. Their 247 board is a total ghost town and like the others said their home games are usually dominated by the opposing team's fans. If you get enough people to go there you'll get an extra home game when you play them.
Why do we need to ask B1G posters about Purdue fans?? Didn't any of you guys go to Orlando 6 years ago??
and BTW on the Purdue = State comparison, umm, NO. Purdue = Tech.
We already hate Ohio State fans. At least I do. So I think we'll fit right in.
Also this board is slowly dying. Most of our fans post on the premium board (pay to play), or the general sports board (free), or the off-topic board (free).
Why does this thread have so many down votes? I find it pretty entertaining...
I don't know how you would know. When's the last time scUM won in the shoe?
Wow the douchiness of Michigan fans is already making me cringe,
My dream is pretty much for this board to act as Poland and for all Big Ten fans to come here and fight each other while we watch.
Hail to the masterbaters,
Hail to the fornicators,
Hail, hail, Michigan,
The cesspool of the land!
If you can't get into college, go to Michigan State!
Any I missed?
I thought your dream was to stop making out with a sock puppet and move on to a mentally unstable girl/boy?
In Purdue's defense (although me defending them sort of proves your point), their basketball team is probably anywhere from 8-10 in the Big Ten this year and they still sellout most/all of their games, non-conference included. They also own the most Big Ten basketball titles with 21 (Indiana has 20).
Purdue is still an Indiana school: they care about basketball first and foremost.
"If you can't go to college, go to State!" was the way I've heard that.
I always thought that saying was a UNC/NCSU thing.
