Not not much room to make a step forward so taking a step back isn't too wild a prediction.

I think the doing more with less meme belongs to the football coach rather than the basketball coach. Never once have I heard that MSU basketball does not bring in top-flight talent. The reason that doesn't translate into NBA success has to do with player development of the freshman phenoms (Marquise Gray, Kelvin Torbert, etc). That doesn't take anything away from his hall of fame level collegiate accomplishments.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Where are you getting this||
Where are you getting this meme from about Izzo doing more with less? I would say he normally targets the 4-year type players and molds them into 1 on 1 defenders before giving them much playing time, but I wouldn't call that "less".

Did you want to see more lists? http://www.msu.edu/about/rankings-and-recognitions/
No, I don't think MSU is as good as UNC, Harvard, or Stanford in all programs (some programs though actually come out better), but to act like MSU is some bottom feeding school for the sisters of the poor is a bit of a stretch. And to answer your question below, yes, my previous employer and current employer were both thrilled to see 2 degrees from MSU on my resume since my major comes in as ranking 13th in the nation.

Not a top school? MSU is top-70 in the WORLD for reputation. This isn't a community college.

I equate him to Tyrus Thomas of LSU from a few years back who played a few years in the league. Freak athlete. Grabs boards. Good defender. Very limited offensively.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||Agree with all except Dawson||
Agree with all except Dawson going to the NBA after his freshman year. He tore his ACL at the end of his freshman year and there was no way he was going to take the chance to declare. Last year was a bit disappointing for him because he would get winded and his conditioning wasn't there. This year he was a completely different player and showed flashes of a facing the basket game.
|21 weeks 3 days ago||The reason MSU players don't||
The reason MSU players don't jump to the pros early is because Izzo doesn't give them a very long leash unless they can play defense. Players out of high school can be lights out shooters and great at slashing and driving, but very rarely do you get somebody out of high school who is a lock down defender during their freshman year of college. Defense takes more time to grow into and learn than offense. It's just the philosophy of the coach and the reason why Appling gets major minutes over Travis Trice, despite Trice leading the team in 3 pt % and overall offensive efficiency.

You're right. 12 B1G schools are ranked top-100 reputation in the world. Think about that for a second. Our little conference has 12 of the top-100 universities in the WORLD.

I think it's dumb and a huge non-issue. Fans can root for whoever they want...why should it bother anybody?
What I do have a problem with is when academics are brought up by the so-called "Walmart Wolverines" like if Oakland University grad, Michigan fan guy goes "If you can't get into college, go to state....dur dur dur hurrrr".....of course no offense meant to my Golden Grizzly friends.

Well considering Manhattan College is not a part of the Borough of Manhattan, I'd say he was just following company orders.

If Izzo is frustrated with Valentine on the court, can you imagine what would happen if he had to coach Josh Smith?

The same exact words were uttered when the Allen/Lucas/Summers trio left and then 2 years later when Draymond Green left. Until the program actually takes a nosedive and is a perennial NIT member, I'll have faith.
|22 weeks 2 days ago||Treading water?? The program||
Treading water?? The program has just gone to its third straight sweet16. The only other programs that can say that right now are Louisville and Florida. If MSU is treading water then literally every other program is drowning a watery death by your standards.
