Wut? My own medicine? I thought we could discuss the match up.
2) Go at Kelly and get him into foul trouble so his minutes are limited and he has to play more passively when he's on the floor.
3) More Payne
A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in.
OK, We will stop Kelly because Payne is a far,far better player. We will contain their guards because Appling will play lock down d and none of their guards is as good as Harris. Nix will contain Plumlee by pounding on him everytime he touches the ball.
Finally, Izzo will outcoach Ratface down the stretch.
By the way. I love the new qb. That guy is huge. Great touch and can make plays. He'll be a 4 star on rivals soon.
I guess I don't, but that is what I was told by someone who is connected at the ACC tourney.
How do you even know it matters? What games did Kelly play in to make them win all but 1 of them? Could MSU say they were a certain % without Trice?

If they don't have metal detectors maybe small caliber weapons?
I'm by no means a tanfan apologist, but the downvoting on this thread is just stupid. It's a legitimate question. Payne has shown that he has trouble playing mobile big guys who can shoot the three. Duke was #1 for a month before Kelly went down. Duke is stacked as usual and has arguably the greatest college bball coach of all time. Personally, I think this game hinges on Appling being aggressive and going to the hoop and hopefully drawing fouls. But frankly, I haven't watched enough Dook this year to know much about what to expect.

A chocolate milkshake loaded with laxatives before the game and he craps all over himself and the court and Curry slips on it and twists his ankle and throws up because of the smell and all the Duke players start puking and have to forfeit.
it's a fair question but because of who's asking it they're getting unfairly downvoted. i got your back Tanny and with upvotes for every post you make in this thread.
You're right, MSU wins by 30 because MSU.
Because YOU are so Offensive...you old, delusional fart... why don't you pick a University that you can root for? Oh wait, you already have... any University other than MSU.
Nίκη για MSU
The key is who can be the aggressor first. Appling is key to this, as well as Harris and Dawson. If Duke becomes the aggressor first, we'll get caught up in flop city. We've got to attack them early and often, circa '05.
I see Michigan State as a destination, not a stop.~Mark Dantonio
Kelly's played exactly one good basketball game in 3 months.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
Yeah, that's exactly what I said. The point is the question should be how does Kelly stop Payne.
Well yeah, for two of those months he didn't play.
You guys are acting like he's Larry Bird.
Jesus. Did you see him in the last 3 games? Payne is playing way better than Kelly is right now. It isn't even close.
That's a really dumb question as an MSU fan unless you're a total blower. I don't speculate on Duke's defensive or offensive strategy. i speculate on our defensive and offensive strategy to counter them. That's just fandom 101. Kelly averages more PPG than Payne, so if you want to get technical, we should be questioning how we limit his points.
Sorry, we should just assume that MSU will win and this message board we're on dedicated to talking about sports should just be one post that essentially says, "MSU is the best, we'll win because we're better."
I never said any of that. What the hell are you talking about?
Kelly's a mess right now. Anyone who's actually watched Duke play the last three weeks could see that.
Way more concerned with Curry and Plumlee.
No question that Tanner roots for MSU. Pumping up Duke in basketball and O$U, U of M and ND in football is his coping mechanism. This way, if MSU loses, he can say I told you so, star so hard, etc.
this is a choose your own adventure and your next page you fell into a spiked pit. Assuming MSU wins you can either... slit your wrist or act like you neverhad any doubts about their potential. tough guy.
