I have a weird feeling that MSU is going to lose tonight. I predict Duke wins by double digits.
Staee @ Purdue; Duke @ UNC
Duke will win by double digits but MSU will win pretty handly also. Izzo will make sure the spartans don't overlook this game.
Stuck in class. Yay WatchESPN.
Nebraska also going for another win to get close to the Tournament!
A few weeks ago, it was noted that MSU, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Nebraska were something like 40-1 in home games not involving Michigan. Who'd have guessed that Nebraska would be the only one of the four left to be unbeaten against everyone else at home?
Wow...yea. BIG TENN!

Nice hard foul by Hammond to put Payne on his ass.
Payne in the ass.
Just talked about MSU's "injury problem" which I believe is just Payne and Appling, one of whom is just an idiot
Guaranteed that in the game vs MSU they bring up MSU's injury problem but conveniently forget to mention the strange absence of some Mitch McGary guy
Branden Dawson too. He's the idiot, the other two are probably just wearing down after all of these years.
Michigan State on fire from 3. 6-8 so far. By all means, go ahead and use em all up tonight.
I read your post before I checked the score, and assumed MSU would be up big. Purdue's still hanging around.
Our team needs to take note of State's shooting. If we do not work on closing out shame on us.
They are on fire and unless they cool off soon, this is going to get ugly. Here is to hoping they use up all of their hot shooting tonight.
I think State is 0 for the century in getting a stop after they slap the floor.
How is Purdue in this game?
State is currenty 12-18 from 3 and 13-20 from the floor. They have attempted TWO 2 pointers. (yes I know fouls but still)
Not a single point in the paint, and pushing 50 total for the first half. That can't happen very often.
26 total fouls in that half and 16 on MSU. there are times where is takes us 2 games to get to 16 fouls.
MSU had one 2 pt FG and is still up 11 in the first half? Lol Purdue.
Our defense might be worse than Purdue's.
Our defense is second worst in the conference, only PSUs is worse (in terms of opponent PPP). That is (usually) mitigated by good shooting, low turnovers, low fouling rate, and limiting possessions.
If Purdue could make free throws this would be a game
It doesn't help that they allowed 17 three pointers.
Oh, Purdue. Thanks for blowing it and allowing 17 three pointers in the process.
Looks like Michigan will just have to do it themselves. Bring it on.
MSU has taken over 30 3 point attempts. Is this real life?
Hopefully they used up all their shooting, 17 3s for Sparty.
They also have 25 assists on 27 baskets, that worries me more than their hot shooting.
I really hate Payne.
MSU is playing great tonight. We must start hot. McGary will be missed on Sunday. We can beat this team again but it will take a monster effort on both sides of the ball.
This same MSU team lost at home to Nebraska last weekend. They're not as bad as they looked then but they're not as good as they look tonight, either.
There is nothing worse in the galaxy than hearing Vitale call a Duke/UNC game.
Uh, I believe Mr. Vitale simply calls it, "The Duke game."
has a mute button.
You don't have to say any more than call a game really IMO.
This Carolina-Duke game is a doozy.
Always nice to see Duke lose.
Duke is...a bitch
