Per Valenti. Announcement of decision could come soon.
OT-Izzo called team meeting at 3:45
Not looking good for Sparty.
but does it *ever* look good for Sparty?
now, now, maybe its another izzo.
I bet he rides a horse out of the team meeting holding new contract with a pay raise from MSU...
Ha. Classic Mix up.
At the end of that movie you love so much, all of the Spartans die.
So too will your basketball program post Izzo.
No man ever won a war by dying for his country. Wars were won by making the other poor bastard die for his.
Every time I think of the movie "300", I think of that line.
It's about as close to 50-50 right now as it could possibly be as far as outside insight into this thing. I have a feeling he's gonna stay, but who knows. Calling a team meeting doesn't provide any indication either way. This situation is putting his players through hell, and he knows he needs to let them know as soon as possible what his plans are, whether he's leaving or not.
MSU is too full of family values.
habing hrd timme typeng with fingrs crosssd
Valenti sounds like someone shot his dog and stole his girlfriend, COME ON DOWN TO CLEVELAND TOWN TOM IZZO!!
Are team meetings countable hours? Hope this one lasts a long time!
I had a grilled chicken breast at 4:15
I heard from reliable sources that Mustachioed Gentleman's chicken was dry. Expect official word some time next Thursday.
Mustachioed Gentleman may have actually gone with the fish. Repeat, sources state Gentleman MAY have committed to fish.
Kansas City Radio Sources now confirm that Mustachioed Gentleman is actually going with steak. Initial reports suggest that he likes it medium rare.
those are fake radio stations. from what i've heard. from my sources.
Via Twitter: "kitchen humidity has been a factor all day against maintaining a constant cooking temperature for chicken breasts."
The same poster tweeted just earlier that a mustachioed gentleman walked into the restaurant about 15 minutes earlier. Could it be the same gentleman? Was the chicken under/over cooked?
Highly placed sources have told me that Mustachioed Gentleman has been extended an invitation by Arby's to eat delicious roast beef, and if he goes, Bearded Lady, Guy With Stupid Soul Patch, and Lame-Ass Half Beard will follow.
I have no fucking clue what's going on
apparently players came out joking. claims are it's for ring sizing. bulllllllshit.
i also LOVE that izzo is taking the weekend to decide it. now if this was happening at UM, Spartans would be clamoring over how disrespectful and rude it was to drag out the process and leave so many people who care in limbo. at MSU? "oh he's just being Tommy"
well next time they freak out, they'll degrade themselves
my patience can rest til then
ohhhohhh i, i can't wait, to see izzo go
Final Four or splitting regular season crown?
i'm pretty sure they give rings for NCAA appearances. didn't Beilein do a big to-do where he showed them his ring or was that for a F4?
MSU has a program.. Its called "Didnt Get Arrested Anonymous" (DGAA)
For every year of sobriety as it were, they get a ring.
Bball team is going well..
Football team is still fighting the good fight...
Tommy prolly told them, "Look here, lads. I'm not going anywhere. I want a nice, big, fat raise and win the championship."
The Spartan ball players, being Spartans, after all, didn't realize that he could just as well been talking about NBA head coaching pay raises and an NBA championship with LeBron.
Details. Ain't they a bitch?
KL left and tweeted "I think all my dreams are about to come true..."
I am not sure what to make of that one.
word. There is no gaurantee of anything until the season starts. Signed Urban Meyer, Billy Donovan, Nick Saban, etc.
Hopefully he gives Michigan some of his $6M since we made him!
He'll need some extra $$ to pay his shrink to repair his broken ego after getting rejected by LeBron.
Let's agree not to do a CIL about this one. We can't leave anything to chance.
Mods, take down the Cleveland tourism video--he might think Cleveland is actually San Diego. Again, leave no loose ends.
when their economy can no longer be based on Lebron James, are they still "not Detroit"?
This may be my favorite thread of all time. The sarcasm is just too sweet.
After pressure from my administration, I am rescinding my former statement.
Teary eyed Spartan players, MSU rally, and the oh-so-creative signmaking or the Michigan State student boy ("Please Don't Go Izzo" and "Just Say No To Cleaveland"...priceless), it's got it all.
from the home state of Michigan really know how to rub the salt.
i love it.
He's king of the mountain at MSU. He'll be just another whipping post coach in the NBA (albeit a richer one).
Shit or get off the pot, Izzo!
I have World Cup and MIS to devote my weekend to.
I don't know why he'd go if LeBron doesn't come back. Without Lebron, the Cavs might not be a playoff team. I don't know why'd you'd go coach for a team that can't win a NBA ring when you could win it all this year for MSU, even though college is a step down.
next MSU coach. You heard it here 1st.
This was tagged as a baseball related thread? Whaaaaa?
/doing some house cleaning and in the 60 or so Tigers threads mistakenly marked "baseball" instead of "other", I find this in the baseball category
lol at this whole thread.
