    Very sad display yesterday. Illini defense was good but State's half court offense was stagnant, almost like they were playing together for the first time.

    Izzo is going to have to pull a rabbit out of his butt to get this team to the Sweet 16

    That would really be something, wouldn't it? UM could get there -- if they play two halves of solid ball for the next few games. MSU the better team right now. I like MSU to beat UConn. Virginia gave Sparty all it could handle. Virginia kept coming. UM/Kentucky is a tossup. Kentucky has some BIG guards. I worry about foul trouble for some of M's guards.

    If they JUST get to the final 4 ALONE, I would be ecstatic. Sometimes the Final 4 gets more hype than the actual game. I am so spent today that I am just getting up to go the gym (I'm usually there at 8AM).....I love the Sweet 16 games and I just didnt want us to lose to Virginia or Tennesee on that stage. I really feel that State just has to play THEIR game and that UConn will wilt just like Virginia did. I was so pissed when Izzo didnt call a time out at the 5 minute mark when it was obvious Payne and the team were spent as they walked the ball up court....Virginia is awesome...But I got Sparty and Blue winning on what will be a SuperBowl sunday for me.

    The difference for UM vs kentucky is that Kentucky also has to guard US!!! It reminds me of that UConn/MSU game at Ford Field that was supposed to punish State as well as the Kansas and Louisville games from last year! This state of MICHIGAN has heart!! And the world of NCAA watchers are finding out!

    U/M will be underdogs the rest of the tourney unless they are facing Dayton in the finals......even then Dayton would be the cinderella favorite

    First half State up 25-21!!! Nice way to show your force as Conn led 12-2 but State is a MAN's team....Nice 3 by Valentine at the end of half......
