This could be the best episode ever. Sweep of Iowa and MSU in the same week both top-10 teams. Episode recaped the games and had some sweet postgame interviews. Love John Beileins attitude of never being satisfied i love this team. Enjoy!!

Playing basketball, I always prefered approaching a game with focus and poise rather than being "fired up."  I know not everyone is wired the same way, but playing angry never did me any favors.  Approaching a game with confidence and determination to play smart was the best angle for me.

Personally, I think Izzo is too emotional and it transfers to his players.  If you get too high, you risk crashing.  Maybe in the second half or maybe the next game.  

I wondered at halftime on Saturday, if MSU could sustain the high emotion and level of play in the second half (especially the subs who weren't used to playing so much) and I don't think that they did sustain it.  I thought that Michigan had more energy in the closing minutes.

Whoever is scared, stay seated.

And as far as being a great pep speech giver, I love the even - keeled approach. I always figured if you have to motivate someone with antics, you haven't done your job to prepare. Players/coworkers won't decide to give it their all at the last second, they should already have the desire before the task at hand.

No. He isn't a very talented broadcaster. I think this has been covered before but he got his gig in the lean days of the program and has just stuck around even though he's never been very popular or done memorable work.
