All you have to do is listen to Izzo for 10 seconds in the postgame, and if you can't see why some are happy he lost ... come on.

As for the letterman ...

He shot really well in helping Sparty stay in the game. But over the last 23 minutes, he had as many fouls as points (3). And over the last 12 minutes, he bricked the only three 3-pointers he took and choked on the front end of a 1-and-1. He also was a statue on defense. A fitting ending.

In 23 seasons from 1997-98 through 2019-20, Izzo had a .732 winning percentage overall, .714 in conference, finished in first place 10 times, finished in the top 3 of the conference 17 times, and made 8 Final Fours.

Purely coincidentally, in 3 seasons since 2020-21, Izzo had a .602 winning percentage overall, .525 in conference, finished 8th, 7th and 4th, and never sniffed a Final Four.

He’s still running the Mid-10 program that won the NCAAs most recently.

I've said 70% Kolek's thumb, 20% MSU defensive effort, 10% nerves.

But as Tower has said, and I agree, we will not convince one another...which is perfectly fine, it's what sport arguments are about.
No…100% thumb….dont bring MSU into this…

Michigan State lost today w/ 13 made threes & 18 made twos.

Since 2010, teams that had made 18+ twos & 13+ threes in NCAA Tournament games were 19-0 with an average margin of victory of +24.

The actual evidence says otherwise. But, as noted previously, we aren't going to convince one another.

I’m sure the thumb impacted him but some of the decisions he made weren’t driven by the injury.

The Owls came out to play in the 2nd half.

Winning it from behind the arc on offense and matching toughness on defense.  You don't need size to beat bullyball teams if you can do that.
VIOLENCE!

Do you have any idea how quickly a vole or lemming is introduced to darkness by several of our 🦉 species?    The game is long from over but it's important to remind ourselves how insanely cool 🦉 🦉 🦉 are.  :)

Yes, by all means, hyperbole and things never said are great arguments. Please proceed.

Joey should have taken that straight on 3 with about 8 seconds left. Mistake to pass on that and now going home.

No idea if MU would have beaten KSU, but I think a lot of us saw MU’s possible road through the East and were quite happy with the draw.

Was Shaka the first to run the 5 on the baseline in bounds set this year? He did it a couple times earlier this year and now everyone is running it
