It is going to be a beautiful day tomorrow and we are still the Spartans of Michigan State.
This team is young and they have a lot of room to grow. This is a down year by our standards, but very few programs have maintained such high standards in the last 15 years. We are set to return a lot of our young talent, and their potential is very encouraging.
"Sing our love for Alma Mater. And thy praises, M-S-U!"
Go GREEN! Always!
If we step back and remember that most pegged this squad as a middle of the pack team in the Big Ten, it was a damned good year.
If everyone comes back next year (I'm looking at you, Mr. Payne) I think this team is probably front runner for Big Ten champion and legit NC contender. GO GREEN!!!!!
Exactly my thoughts. This team exceeded all expectations and had a legitimate shot to win a conference championship. We got plenty of young talent to improve and make another run next year.
Exciting, definitely. Successful? Yes, but by our own standards, maybe not. Fulfilling? We didn't quite get the job done.
Vim -- noun: robust energy and enthusiasm : VITALITY
Best memories of this year include celebrating every basket like it was the game winner in a75-52 blasting of um at Breslin, the fight-gate at Penn State (i think they're still repairing walls in that hotel), and Nix on senior night.
Go Green, Great Season!
Weak. No Final Four. No banners. Season wasn't a success
Compared to pre season expectations, this was a very good year with many injuries, developing leadership and skills...among the challenges. Looking forward to next year and many more successes. No gripes here!
Thank you Mr. Nix!
Nίκη για MSU
27 wins and sweet 16 is not a down season. Duke was an anomaly. We were not intimidated by the name on the jersey the refs were.
bump to keep this near the top.
So much negativity and armchair analysis. A lot of Elite programs celebrate a Sweet Sixteen. You would too if your MSU years fell right between Magic and Skiles. (cue "kids today have it too easy" cable commercial).
Cmon down, 14 recruits!
Yep. I fear too many here aren't old enough to remember when sweet 16 was a prayer not an expectation. Its amazing what our coach has given us. He is the only reason I watch any form of basketball as I truly can't stand the officiating, not just last night.
That said, I was ready for nix to body slam someone yesterday out of frustration. Appling was right about officials.
