Checks out since you can't manage to play more than 2 games every tournament
Would be a relief for Purdue to get that W tonight. Our shoulders hurt from carrying this conference in March for so long.
Since when does making to the Sweet 16 mean anything?
Means more than losing in the round of 32
Congrats on playing 4 extra days than we did Michigan fans. Go hang that banner
Howard has already won less than 20 games in two of his first three seasons. Izzo has only done that twice in the last 18 seasons.
How many games has Izzo won after interfering in a rape investigation?
Thanks. Feels great!!
That's where you want to go with zero implications or evidence? Isn't there a statue you should be taking down?
Pretty sure every Michigan fan here has condemned Bo's inaction re: Anderson, but you guys still absolutely worship Izzo.
This weather has really got folks Midwest Melancholy this week.
Fair point…I mean how would any of the rest of y’all know?
Izzo's repeated March failings really has Sparty on edge
NCAA Tournament wins since Howard started
Just like football I guess. Sparty plays to a win a game; Big Brother competes for championships.
By all means carry on about those incredibly meaningful regular season wins.
Just realized this current outburst from Sparty probably is less about Izzo and more about their assumed heir apparent, Dane Fife-Goebbels, being outed as a Q-supporter
We've hated Fife since at least Loyer and Kithier
I thought wins in March counted more? Pretty sure I read that somewhere. But I’m probably misremembering
Of note for #Indiana Hoosiers fans...Michael Lewis took the Ball State job
I think Fife and his recruiting evaluations, including prioritizing two kids that played at his HS that didn’t have the athleticism necessary to play, is significantly to blame for our current teams inability to play basketball. I think we’re all happy he’s not affiliated with us at this time
I am not thrilled about the state or direction of the program, but do want to note that this Michigan State team basically played to its preseason ranking and expectation.
I do not feel that this year's team (or last year's team for that matter) underperformed in the tournament. They were both shit rosters from the beginning for the reasons mentioned above.
I hope the staff plans on being far more aggressive in the portal as I think there are a few solid pieces on the roster currently.
I also recognize that we are probably going to be in the NIT every other year after Izzo leaves. I hope he gets back to a final 4 level, but if he doesn't this is still likely better than the alternative.
If even half of what's being said about his year with us is true, people won't be beating down his door any time soon to offer a job.
Could see him eventually taking the reins from Woodson if that tenure goes well.
It’s all believable and we had hoped for years he would leave
lol at you thinking anyone here worships Izzo. 2/3 of the fanbase wants him fired.
That last paragraph is stupid. They will not only make the tourney 50% of the time post-Izzo and I would bet Vinegar Strokes life on that.
Yeah that’s an awful take. If Michigan can make it going less than .500 against power 5 conference teams, than we should have no issues making the tourney.
Are you really comparing Bo to Izzo? You’re such a piece of shit.
I find Bo's inaction deplorable, but you're still out here stanning for Izzo after *AT LEAST* 3 rape cases involving his program. 20 years from now, who knows what that number is.
There is a difference between Izzo letting law enforcement do their jobs and Bo forcing underperforming athletes to be in positions to be sexually assaulted
I think it could be similar to post-Knight Indiana or post-Weber Illinois. Indiana is right at 50%, Illinois is below over the last decade.
Many good programs with established coaches have missed multiple tournaments in that time period. 50% may be understating it a little bit, but it's harder to keep things humming like that than it seems at face value, even if we hire a good coach after Izzo which is far from guaranteed
It's very odd to me that B1G posters on here generally get along in the football thread unless Iowa is involved, but the basketball thread is a free for all of non-rent paying hate. Is it because basketball in the league is actually competitive while OSU has just destroyed the collective will of football fans?
no. It’s because Michigan has been irrelevant in football for the past 15 years (outside of this past season). So all their fans just hide on their team board all season.
basketball program has been the 2nd best program in the B1G the past 15 years (behind MSU), so their fans feel the need to run their mouth every once in a while, since they don’t get the chance to do it in football. We saw it this year with some posters, they went into hiding until about February and then boom.
Vin, why won't you disavow Tom Izzo?
20 years from now, who knows how many rapes you’ll be accused of?
Stop being a troll. It’s not your swim lane.
We'll never know.
I'll stop bringing up Izzo's players raping women once Vin stops being so predicably boring with his efforts.
You guys can keep bringing up Bo and I'll keep agreeing with you about him.
But if you want to stop having the Izzo conversation, stop being an annoying twerp.
Oh no. Vin is being annoying.
I rest my case.
Not to change the subject (but I totally want to change the subject), I feel bad for all of your teams that keep losing in the NCAA tournament. In Minnesota, we don’t have that problem.
There was the Appling/Payne one and we know Appling is a criminal so that checks out. What were the other two?
I think bball is competitive in the sense that we have still won 20% of the last 10 titles outright while employing 3 HCs and being a shit sandwich outside of them but OSU is the Thanos of football. Bball is mich more of a wildcard.
Plus I can't say shit in the football thread.
In the football thread you could say that Indiana won the Covid B1G before the rules were updated to benefit OSU
Your chicken is getting cold fat boy.
Purdue joins MSU and OSU as B1G schools losing to 15 seeds. That said, there’s no shame in making it to the Sweet 16. Tough loss, Boilers.
