Wasnt Hummel playing for Purdue in Big Dog's last year????
"I am no doctor but it looked like and LCL injury."
Doesn't look like an LCL injury in my opinion. Method of injury doesn't really fit. Even if it was though, probably not a full tear and wouldn't cost him his season by any means.
I actually love the kid as a player. Hopefully its not as bad as it seems.
He is great to watch. Can't stand the team, enjoy the player.
I have tremendous respect for Draymond. Do I feel bad for him? Yes I do. Do I feel bad for Tom Izzo and the Spartan hoops team? Not one bit.
i see wydt.
Unlike the Izzone, I don't wish injuries on anybody. If Green is out for a while or the rest of the season, that's obviously a serious blow for Sparty. I don't feel sorry for them but I feel sorry for him. Hopefully he'll be alright.
As for our game at Breslin, if Green is out, that's still a dangerous game because we play like crap on the road. Iowa, the crapiest of crap teams destroyed us at their place. Green or no Green, that's going to be a tough game.
However, if by some chance we DO win that game, I could care less if Spartan nation starts with the excuses of not having Green so the game doesn't count, yadda, yadda, yadda. After all those years of going through Brian Ellerbe and partly Tommy Amaker, just the fact that we're at the point now where MSU basketball fans are saying, "We would have beaten you if ____________." that's pretty cool.
If Spartan fans can pound their chests over beating 3 of the worst Michigan football teams in school history, I don't have to feel ashamed in beating a MSU basketball squad without Green. Plain and simple.
But again, that's a big if. There are no guarantees playing on the road.
He twisted it. Looked painful when it happened.
If Day-day is out, who probably pick up his minutes?
We really play positions by committee. He didn't play most of the game tonight so you saw more of a combination of Nix, Payne, Gauna, Dawson in there filling up the C and PF positions. Since we last played UM last, Dawson has stepped up his game big time (both against Purdue and tonight). Even though he starts at 3, he can also play the 4. I would expect him to be in the game a bit more if Green can't go.
there you have it folks, spartys excuse for losing to us on sunday
for the Robbie Hummel taunting......
That's exactly why the only thing we should be saying is "That sucks, I hope he gets better soon."
I hope he does get better and only misses one game.
Hate to see any kid get injured. Get well Draymond.
We shouldn't be assuming we'll win at the Breslin, but we can still be honest about Green's unlucky misfortune . . .
. . . but also about the way in which he conducted (or will conduct) himself to the media while healthy . . . and now injured.
Basically, I don't think we have to unload positive vibes on Green if it's not genuine.
Call a spade a spade. Draymond Green was a solid player with a big mouth on a good team with a coach with a big mouth.
I don't think Green said anything out of line to the media. Yeah, he guaranteed victory. What's wrong with that? That just added a little spice to the rematch.
I'd like us to beat State at their best, especially at the Breslin. But man, even with Green in there tonight that game was painful to watch. Strug-a-ling would be an understatement for both teams, even by Joe Namath's standards.
It's unfortunate to see a college career end that way, especially for someone who genuinely cares about college ball rather than seeing it as a necessary evil on the way to getting paid.
But only a few degrees less unfortunate is that we won't have the pleasure of watching a cocky hater like Green walk off the Breslin floor disappointed yet again. I'd rather see him disappointed by losing than by not even getting to play.
Do we know it's a season-ending injury? I just saw the replay of him struggling off the court and it certainly looked bad, but young adult bodies can be surprisingly resilient.
If a knee and the letters "CL" are involved like people are saying, I usually assume the rehab is measured in months instead of weeks.
I hope Day Day can summon the spirit of Mateen Cleaves by time for the Michigan game.
As much as he'd like to play in his last Michigan game, State has longer-term goals, and Izzo isn't an idiot. If he's hobbling like Mateen, it'd be smarter to sit him for a while and let it heal.
It was kind of strange seeing Green lay on the floor in pain and how long it took someone from the Spartan bench to go over and assist him, then it was just one assistant attending Green, who then hopped of on one leg.
It was really bizzare. It was almost like they were in denial of how serious the situation was.
They just showed him using crutches to get to the bus or wherever he was going, with just his parents and I felt really bad for him and his family. Puts things in perspective. Speedy recovery Mr. Green.
Get well soon Draymond. You've been a respectful rival.
Green is as talkative and whiney as Izzo. Especially about his three losses to Michigan.
I always want the best team playing against us. It eliminates excuses when we win as is a true indicator of how good our team is.
Not with Sparty it doesn't. They will never be convinced we have a better basketball team, not even if we win 12 in a row, so they will always be the fanbase of 1,000 excuses. If it's not missing Green, it'll be the refs, God, bad luck, the refs, distractions, fatigue, the refs, the announcers, anything at all to avoid admitting we even have a good basketball team, let alone a better one.
That is basically a complete reversal of the annual football argument with their fans. Funny how the same pattern repeats itself for both respective positions in different sports.
True, there's absolutely a little reversal of fortune thing going on, but I think there are two major differences:
- we didn't try and claim we still had a better team in years like 2008
- we can see the irony when Hollis and Green talk about how they've been better for longer in basketball
This is why we're Michigan and they aren't. They cheered the Denard injury earlier in the year.
Has been a great player and leader for them... If he cannot play it is a big blow. As a fan of collegiate
sports I don't wish injury on any of these kids. Blue or Green...
On an unrelated note, there is some really delicious spartyfreude flowing out there...
For those of you who enjoy that kind of thing, I give you...
and a blast from the past
With that said, I hope Green plays on Sunday. 4 in a row would be a little empty without watching his spirit break before my eyes as he finished his career getting swept by Michigan.
Watching Lucas and Summers walk off the court was pretty sweet. I could do with more of that.
You will have plenty of time to watch his spirit break when McGary leads us to 6 in a row next year.
Screw you Spartans.
like to beat them at full strength, I'll happily take a win regardless of the situation
I have been labeled a sparty "hater" (which is untrue), I will say this.
I hope his injury is not serious. I would not wish injury on any player. I feel bad (yes I am sincere) for all the MSU fans who are heart broke. They must be feeling a bit of dispair today. This is a huge loss for them and I share their pain.
I remember when Jimmy had his arm broke trying to recover a fumble back in 1984. It was terrible although we recovered from it. I offer my well wishes to Mr Green for a speedy recovery and I offer a shot of Scotch to all the MSU fans to ease the pain.
