Yup, I remember that one. I was on a house tour and walked into the living room and thought the floor was a little shaky.
This was much bigger. I'm heading to Galesburg to loot.

I heard on the radio today that Isiah Thomas was probably the only truly great NBA player Bobby Knight turned out.

As a Spartan fan, I normally stay out of the conversations, but I'll throw my .02 into this one. I don't think MSU has an elite program--I think we have an elite coach. Jud Heathcote was an excellent coach who did a lot with limited talent. He got lucky with some recruits: Earvin Johnson, Steve Smith, Scott Skiles. For the most part, though, he had a solid--not great--program.
Izzo has taken MSU to a new level. We'll see if MSU stays there once he's gone. To me, it's not so much elite programs as elite coaches. 25 years ago, who could have seen UCLA becoming irrelevant (memo to UCLA, if you look down the bench and see Steve Alford as your coach, you're become irrelevant)? Look at Indiana without Knight (memo to Indiana, if you thought Mike Davis was a wack-job...).
So, the point when you find an elite program, look at the coach. Lastly, I think far too many at MSU take Tom Izzo for granted. To do what Izzo had done, with the resources available to him, I'd put him in the top 10 college coaches of all time.

Man, there is enough butt-hurt in this thread to start a proctology clinic.
But, yeah, you guys figured it out--the fix was in for MSU. MSU got a 7th seed (AP #23, RPI 22) after finishing third in the B1G, just like Iowa got a 7th seed (AP OtherReceivingVote, RPI 43). Hollis thought by giving MSU a lowly 7th seed, he could set up the other pins in the region without the conspiracy being sniffed out. But, you guys figured it all out. Virginia, even though they were AP #6, RPI #7, they sucked donkey balls. Then, Okie, AP #13, RPI #18, were really chumps who liked fat women and cheap whisky, didn't even practice the night before because they got their pay-off.
But, that's the way it goes for MSU every year--the committee sets it up for a run. They've been doing it for 18 freakin' years in a row. Nice bunch. Try buying 'em some decent cigars and a bottle of wine once in a while. It works wonders.

As an MSU fan, this is a fair post. MSU was killed in three games with great QB play: Oregon, OSU, and Baylor (luckily, they started the party too soon). The most impressive QB we faced was Barrett. He dropped bombs on us like we were the Taliban. Hopefully--for all of us--OSU's qbs hate each other, bang each other's girlfriends, and generally become a huge issue for the their team. I don't ever want to face Barrett on another hot streak.

"No," says Dantonio,"I watched SanFran play against San Deigo a couple of weeks ago. Harbaugh was up 21 points, and I said to myself 'pretend Harbaugh was coaching this game' and I pulled out the victory just like San Deigo did. Harbaugh giving that game away was an inspiration."
Now, ask me another question."

You have no idea what MSU fans think of Harbaugh. It's all about recruiting. You got a nice HC coach recruit, just like you got great player recruits. Nothing has changed--UM wins the coach recruiting National Championship!!
See you on the field where it actually counts.

I can agree with a lot of what you said. However, I don't think most MSU people were denied admission to UM. Tons of students go to MSU for specific programs offered by MSU and never tried to get into UM. I never applied to UM. That line of thought makes as much sense as saying many/most of the students at UM were turned down by a better school. Do some students go to MSU because they couldn't get into UM?--sure. Is it many/most?--come on.

I've been a Spartan fan all my life, and I DON'T hate UM football. I don't hate their players, wish injuries on them, or find joy in poor decisions made by young men. I do love the good natured bombs that go back and forth between the fanbases. Also, I have no illusions that MSU will crush UM every time they play from here until eternity. I wish Dantonio had never referenced Mike Hart, and I understand why he is disliked by UM fans. However, it takes passion to excel at this game, and Dantonio is a very passionate man. If the worst thing the guy does is let that passion boil over from time to time, I'll take that in a heartbeat. And, whether UM fans will admit it or not, they would, too.

?You're kidding, right? 40 pounds in a couple of months? Did you ever think if he didn't eat a thing he would have trouble losing 40 pounds? For the record, Max Bullough weights 10 pounds more than he did in college. Either that or the Houston Texans hire 190 pound weakings that look like 240 pound linebackers. UM has been touting photos of Green and a number of other player's before and after photos. The photos show a huge difference in size. Are you saying that UM's own photo evidence of such a huge difference in just a matter of months is juicing, too? Or, does UM own the only weightroom in the B1G?
Thanks for the flat out lie. Mogoblog appreciates it.

Sorry, but Max Bullough weighs 10 pounds more than he did in college. Check the Houston Texans roster against MSU's.
