"Let's be honest - we took a big step backwards tonight."
Particularly critical of Nix and Dawson. Said it's "a shame" he had to discipline Nix and will sit him longer if it happens again. Said Dawson picked a bad game to not give full effort.
I like it. Send a message
"Let's be honest - the message boards didn't bring it strong tonight"
tRCMB - Where MSU fans eat their own.
Wow he was on fire.
Called nix "immature" and threatened to sit him for longer if he ever "does it again".
Said that Dawson and Payne weren't very good and that illinois played harder and that it was a disappointment and not a very satisfying win.
Said that they need to get better and that Illinois exploited them some tonight.
The game thread forgot the third place that games are won.
Also said that stats are deceiving.
Even though they shot the ball great and rebounded well they barely escaped with a win.
Lamented the poor free throw shooting

Izzo says Nix missed a class Friday and a tutor session Monday. Izzo not happy. "It'll be a cold day in hell before I do anything...(cont)....but help that kid graduate."
Thank you, Denicos.
Izzo: "We found a way to win, and that's the only good thing I have to say."
This is why I love Tom Izzo
Sounds like Trice may be out a while. Sounds like another concussion. Izzo has nothing definite right now, though.
Appling took a leap forward.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
Ugh, gotta have trice back ASAP
i only care about spartans --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqsAJQc-NCY
I think.keith should be given his due, that guy played fantastic tonight.
Man i feel.so much worse about that win now
I don't. It's Izzo. He's never satisfied. That wasn't even close to the best we've played this year, and we still put up 80 and won. I'll take it. Whatever it is, MSU likely won't play like that in a bigger game.
Losing Trice is big. He has been playing well lately.
Trice has been playing very well as of late. He was spectacular at IU. His improvement has made a huge difference in this team. Hope he'll be OK.
Yep right now our titles chances will hinge on keeping everybody else healthy, Harrs' back and Byrd being able to contribute on both ends without consistently committing turnovers and fouling.
we have a short bench. Our rotation is literally down to 6 people if he's out. Appling, Harris, Dawson, Payne, Nix, and Valentine. Appling's playing 40 every game and now Gauna and Byrd will definitely see some major minutes, since I highly doubt Nix is conditioned to stay on the floor more than he already is.
If anyone can make it work, it's Izzo.
Thanks again Papa Kearney.
Costello will get some time too. He is a better rebounder than Gauna.
Agreed. Love that Izzo isn't satisfied, but I am allowed to be.
