Next year's Big Ten hoops should be interesting. Wisconsin will take a major step back (bunch of lost seniors), but others should be good including UM, MSU (even if Bridges goes pro), Indiana...
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Agreed. No reason to take||
Agreed. No reason to take the risk if it's no fun as is.
|6 weeks 6 days ago||Curious if Theo Day would||
Curious if Theo Day would also be a QB option for '18?
|7 weeks 11 hours ago||Yeah - I'm curious about Day.||
Yeah - I'm curious about Day. He definitely has the size. MSU offered him last week and appears to have passed on their former target (Kevin Doyle) to be all in on Day.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||You honestly think Dantonio's||
You honestly think Dantonio's recruiting philosphy is get only those that "want to beat Michigan" and not recruit star athletes? Come on.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Connor Heyward committed in||
Connor Heyward committed in December.
2018 recruit Xavier Henderson committed in September.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Meh - both are good players.||
Meh - both are good players. We'll see how they do on the college level.
|10 weeks 2 days ago||Richardson appears bound JUCO||
Richardson appears bound JUCO route. His MSU visit this weekend got pushed back...think he was supposed to visit Ole Miss, but that isn't happening. Seem to be some red flags.
MSU has Johnathan Lovett on campus this weekend. He appears to be MSU's primary target to be the second back with Bridges. Guessing Taylor would be out of picture.
|11 weeks 15 hours ago||That's interesting. He was||
That's interesting. He was rumored to go to Oklahoma and it was somewhat surprising he went back to MSU. Makes sense.
If MSU is set at one position going forward it's WR. Great class last year and White, Rison, and quite possibly Martin are another very solid class coming in.
|11 weeks 16 hours ago||Probably because Andre||
Probably because Andre wouldn't let his kid go to UM so why bother. I'm sure Hunter is good - has offers from Alabama, OSU, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA, etc.
|11 weeks 16 hours ago||MSU does look to be in pretty||
MSU does look to be in pretty good shape with Oliver Martin and Cordarrian Richardson. But yeah - not shaping up to be like last year's class.
|16 weeks 6 days ago||MSU last year isn't a great||
MSU last year isn't a great example because they actually had a resume that stacked up very well to other contenders (Oregon at home, at OSU and UM, BTCG against Iowa). They may have squeaked by a lot, but if you look purely at win/loss it was impressive.
To the bigger point - yes - conference championships don't always mean a team is one of the top four.

FYI - MSU/Wisconsin is actually in East Lansing.

Wisconsin plays the "money/benefits" game?

Please supply evidence that Izzo is cheating.
Fact is the talent in midwest outside of Chicago has been really good last few cycles, Izzo is a hall of famer, MSU has a good deal of NBA success the last couple years (Draymond is huge for them), and they go to the tournament every year (and often far). Izzo also works his butt off on the recruiting trail and every commit has had a very logical reason for picking MSU.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||He's good...believe he was a||
He's good...believe he was a pre-season All-American last year. More of a blitzing guy then a run stopper...but they need all the bodies they can get to get to the QB this year.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||MSU won at UM and OSU last||
MSU won at UM and OSU last year. They overcame that mental hurdle - probably doesn't bother them as much.
|30 weeks 6 days ago||MSU would probably just argue||
MSU would probably just argue they should get two more straight games in EL since the first zillion in the series were in AA.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Well, that's irrelevant. If||
Well, that's irrelevant. If they took the Rose Bowl out of the NY6/Playoffs games and replaced it with the Pizza Pizza Bowl then the Pizza Pizza Bowl would become a "major" bowl. It would have the same quality of teams in it as the Rose Bowl did. Not really sure how this is an arguable point...
I mean, did Alabama not win a "major" bowl last year when they defeated MSU in the Cotton Bowl which was a national playoff semi-final?
|33 weeks 6 days ago||It's basically the equivalent||
It's basically the equivalent of a BCS game. Pretty much everyone considers the NY6 Bowls to be major.
|33 weeks 6 days ago||Not sure if sarcastic, but||
Not sure if sarcastic, but didn't Hoke win one (Sugar) and Dantonio has two (Rose, Cotton)?
|47 weeks 6 days ago||Not happening. They just -||
Not happening. They just - which controversy - started up construction on the new Detroit PAL headquarters with plans to develop some condos/restaurants on the site.
They are planning on keeping the field itself, but the controversy is the plan to put in articifical turf.
|47 weeks 6 days ago||It's actually fairly common||
It's actually fairly common to have county jails in downtowns (look at Chicago). Many courts are downtown and this makes it much cheaper and more convenient to transport prisoners/families around. Not saying I like it, but it's not a Detroit only issue at all.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||I can't find a for sure||
I can't find a for sure answer, but just read a quote from Izzo that said he'll help them transfer whereever they want to. If you can prove he put restrictions in then feel free. Otherwise, your point is basically invalid.
|51 weeks 5 days ago||Did Izzo restrict where Bess||
Did Izzo restrict where Bess and Clark can transfer?
|51 weeks 5 days ago||I give that sacred honor to||
I give that sacred honor to either Turgeon the Turtle or Kill when he was a Gopher.
|52 weeks 22 hours ago||For likely being the top||
For likely being the top prospect this year there have been remarkably few rumblings about his recruitment being dirty. Everything seems to show it's clean and he's a really smart sounding kid. Now there may be an issue that his mom is somewhat of a control freak (there is a thought his Mom wants Kansas and he wants MSU), but nothing at all showing anything dirty.
|52 weeks 22 hours ago||There were very strong||
There were very strong rumblings that Jackson was going to commit to Kansas last Thursday night. MSU fans are pretty pessimistic at this point.
|1 year 1 week ago||For the record, a seemingly||
For the record, a seemingly connected poster on another UM basketball blog has mentioned there is basically nothing shady at all about Jackson. Actually said it was the cleanest recruitment of a straight up elite talent that he'd seen.

What a terrible story. Sadly, he's also a UofM law school grad.
