I think he stays, especially with the sentiments of his former players mixed in. It would be bittersweet if he left anyways; maybe good for Michigan now, but in the long run bad for Michigan.
I did find it interesting as well that LeBron claimed that Cleveland "has an edge" in signing him.
Edit: Forgot the link.
Edit#2: Alright then, I give. I will say once more though, for the record, that I love beating the pants off the Spartans. Tom Izzo seems like one of the good guys though, that does things the right way, and does honor to his team and our conference. He is good for the State of Michigan, does right by his community, and is a damn fine basketball coach. I am a born and raised Wolverine, married to a fine lady Wolverine, and the son, grandson, and brother of Wolverines. Yet I am not so proud as to wish a native Michigander exile in that horrible place to the south.
So go ahead, I realize the negbangers are weak POSs that want our BBall program to be spoon-fed back to prominence rather than be built the right way.
