The coach talking about the Final Four and wearing a hot shirt and sweater combo and roots for the Big Ten and would like to see MSU cut down the net in Detroit.
John Beilein Talks Final Four
What is the net effect of MSU tournament success on M's basketball program (e.g., recruiting, playing at Ford Field, etc.)?
I would think they'd want to match up with Villanova instead of UNC.
If you listen to John Beilein on Sam Webb, he clearly says that he's rooting for MSU because he doesn't really understand the rivalry yet, but that he might in a couple of years.
what is there to understand?
I think whether or not he is rooting for MSU, he needs to say that he is supporting them in the Final Four. I do not want our basketball program to come off like MSU football with Dantonio and his penis envy. Stay classy, support the Big Ten, the state of Michigan, etc.
That being said, Fuck MSU. I have been rooting for them to lose every round. It does not help us in recruiting (although Beilein is after a different player it doesn't help), it gives MSU fans with inferiority complexes more ammunition to throw in our faces.
