Obviously the Big Ten is the best league in the country.

He said “No matter what anybody says we have the best conference in the country”.

Translation?

“No matter what I or any other Big 14 apologists say, we are what our abysmal (for multiple decades) record in the NCAA Tournament says we are”.

Leaders lead. You’re one of the moderators of the board. Maybe act like it once in a while. Just a thought.

Sir, this is an Arby's.

There is absolutely coach speak.  Each one has their own variations, but there are definitely consistent themes and cliches.

Georgetown should have taken notice back then that he wasn't a good judge of basketball talent.

It's not exactly coach speak in light of the fact that there are 0.0  B14 teams left in the tournament with only 1 that made the S16.  It's clearly an idiotic and dishonest statement by Izzo.  Everyone with eyes knows how crappy their league is and their flame out was totally predictable. 

There are white lies and degrees of dishonesty.  We all understand what coach speak is and what It's not.  The B14 was a mediocre league and it has been proven once again this season.  If Mark Few said the WCC was the best conf in the country, or any coaches in the Mountain West uttered the same thing, they we be excoriated and rightly so.  Izzo is a imbecile, a lying sack of garbage, and his routine and mannerisms are getting old and tired.  #Assclown

Geez Mugs, did he steal your girlfriend?   Not sure how we should feel considering the imbecile owns us. I would take that guys post season success any day of the week.

Piling on, you do you Muggs. What's to get upset about? He's clearly pandering to his base. I don't think anyone is going to change their mind on the Big10 after his speech.

Since Izzo was hired in 1995, MSU has 8 final 4s.

The rest of the Big 10 combined has 11.
(I exclude Maryland, as their appearances happened in the ACC)

This illustrates muggsy's point about the Big 10 being mediocre.  It shows that Izzo is far from an imbecile when it comes to tourney time.

You know what’s impressive?  Kansas State is 263rd in offensive turnover % and they turned it over 5 times last night.  A normal night?  They lose going away.

Also, a note on UCLA.  In the first half when they were doing what they wanted on offense and had Gonzaga on their heels, Dan Bonner noticed Mick Cronin imploring his team to slow down.  Balance that against UConn who buried Arkansas.  Have my doubts Cronin has a better 3-year stretch he just had in LA.
Ramsey head thoroughly up his ass.

I don't care for the guy and I wanted to be clear about it.  Also, the drool fest from some here annoys me.  I simply do not get it.

He's said too many moronic things to count, I'm not talking about his coaching.

I suspect Cronin wanted them to slow down because they have a couple of guys out with injuries and he was afraid they might burn themselves out.

That concern was probably well founded.

Even at full strength getting into a horse race is playing to Gonzaga’s strength.

Yes and no.  That's Cronin's MO regardless.  You can see it against teams even when they are healthy.  The man loves a rock fight.  Its just a bit silly when you have the offensive talent he does.

This extra Covid year crap needs to end.  It’s getting ridiculous seeing 23-25 year old men playing against 18-21 year old kids.

Was waiting for someone to post this as I feel the pain will continue to grow the more upsets happen. Both 1 seeds are going down tonight. Our path could have been Fau in the elite 8 and sdsu/creighton. We couldn’t have hand picked a better route
