I have a weird feeling that MSU is going to lose tonight.  I predict Duke wins by double digits.

Just talked about MSU's "injury problem" which I believe is just Payne and Appling, one of whom is just an idiot

Guaranteed that in the game vs MSU they bring up MSU's injury problem but conveniently forget to mention the strange absence of some Mitch McGary guy

They are on fire and unless they cool off soon, this is going to get ugly. Here is to hoping they use up all of their hot shooting tonight.

MSU is playing great tonight. We must start hot. McGary will be missed on Sunday. We can beat this team again but it will take a monster effort on both sides of the ball.
