Who's living in the past now?


Izzo: "U-M's seniors have lost 4-5 times to us, and they played with incredible passion that we didn't match"

— Minh Doan (@_minhdoan) February 8, 2017

Izzo says he's not making excuses ... but, 'that was seniors against freshmen.'

— Nick Baumgardner (@nickbaumgardner) February 8, 2017

Irvin, the other senior, had a whopping 3 points. Bzzzt.

Izzo says his freshmen (Winston, Ward, Langford) didn't understand the seriousness of the game

— Minh Doan (@_minhdoan) February 8, 2017

Ward is from Columbus and Winston is from Detroit.

Izzo says MSU had a great week of practice, didn't show up on court.

Holds many records still, including career starts (128), career assists (731), career steals (total and per game), career minutes, career turnovers, single-season assists per game, single-season steals (total and per game, 1st, 2nd and 3rd places for both), single-season turnovers, single-game assists, and single-game steals

I think.  Gotta think they'll drop to 9 or 10 seed.  But yeah, I'm not sure how the bracketologists are putting them so high.  They have a 47 RPI (before tonight) and a worse kenpom.  At least Ole Miss had good fancy stats.

No idea how they could be considered a top 32 team.  For a minute I thought maybe they could be discounting some losses from when Bridges was out, but they went 6-1 without him including their best win at Minnesota!

They've gone 4-5 since he returned.  One could reasonably argue they were just as good (bad) without him.  No idea how they aren't an 11ish seed right now, at best.

Thanks for sharing WD! So satisfying!

Now someone tweet at Jemele Hill about what she said in October relative to what happened tonight. Have a respect for her journalism and analysis...but that stops when she brings up Michigan or State. One of the worst kinds of State fans.
