Putting the scrubs with no names on the back of the jerseys in with a minute and a half remaining and jacking up 3s lol
Serious question: do the walk ons wear uniforms with no names? I remember Sweeney last year having his name on his jersey. Either way, funny shit... Seeing the starters on the bench cheering those guys on was absolutely priceless!!!

If umAA is not pressing then I doubt he gives them the green light, but it was great to see!
Chapman has his name on the back but I didn't notice anyone else.
The players that came in aren't just walk ons, they were practice players. They don't travel with the team any where and didn't even dress until the illinois game this year. It really was the ultimate "F you."
They're pretty new walk-ons so that may be why.
I thought it was great when they were standing up with Izzo talking to them, waiting for the end of the FTs to send them to the scoring table. All the players were getting so excited, and then Gauna eventually tore off one of their pants
Though fun, it was hardly an F-you. It was a reward for all they do in practice and to make sure Dawson's injury was the last of the evening. Izzo has spent considerable time on the losing side of this rivalry as an assistant, so I think he genuinely respects their program and wouldn't purposely insult them. He may rub their face in the dirt to show who is boss, but wouldn't try to disrespect them. That is a Calipari type behavior, not an Izzo one.
Despite him being like our 18th best player, Izzo still gave it to Bella Sibedwo (I think that's who that is) late in the game.
If the scummers want to press when down 30 with 2 minutes to go they are lucky Izzo didnt let payne and nix get some dunks in. Good to see those guys get some minutes especially against scum
To die in ann arbor is redundant
As everyone else already said, putting in the walkons isn't an F you to Michigan. Also, Izzo is too classy for that.
As for the shooting, I think Dakich nailed it correctly when he said "if I'm a walk-on and I get into the game, if I get the ball, I'm gonna shoot. I'm going to put up the ball so fast it'll be like I'm allergic to leather."
Don't blame them. In 50 years, Trevor Bohnhoff is going to be telling his grandkids about that point he scored against Michigan every time they come visit.
If you bank the first free throw though, go ahead and bank in the second one.
If we can trick Coach Krzyzewski into saying his own name backwards, perhaps he will be pushed back to the fifth dimension
An "F You" would have been to leave the starters in and finish with a 30-40 point win.

I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
the ultimate F you would have been to not spread the court out and stop running our offense like we did. With 8 minutes left we had a legitimate chance at 90 or 100 points if we would have kept playing up tempo like we were. Izzo just has too much class and respect for bline
The difference is one is a classy "F You" while the other is a calipari* "F You."
*calipari (adj.) - classless
Guy next to me at the game said the same thing...
Exactly. The F-You to scUM was the 113-63 game in 2000 when Mateen got the assist records.
Izzo is a classy guy, but I think it still chafes his ass that UM cheated for years and dominated MSU because of it (and in an absolutely classless way). That 2000 game was the exclamation point on his statement that MSU is now the dominant program in the state of Michigan. I am absolutely sure that it still does his heart good to beat UM, especially in the way his team took it to them last night. But I do think he no longer needs the obvious middle finger of a 50-point win to prove his point.
I think that was the earliest that Tom has turned off the attack mode against scum.

Nίκη για MSU
Whoever #44 was when he got the ball on an inbound pass under michigans basket, he took about 6 steps with pressure on him and the ref just let him go. I think the ref was kind of giving Beilien a "what the f**k are you pressing the team managers for"?
I think you are dead wrong that he "respects" their program. Being on the other end of the score as an assistant is why he dislikes them as much as he does. Izzo respects the game, and their coach, and he is too classy to intentionally embarass anyone. I bet he respects their program as much as he respects calipari's tireless work on the recruiting trail.
I don't think it was an "F-You" at all. Just a reality of the blowout at hand.
Not an ef you at all. Most teams insert their walk on players and clear the bench whenever a game is all but won. It was classic to see that kid bank in a free throw though. I searched, but couldn't find a video.
How about when he put Byrd in? Was the ultimate taunt to UMAA?
When Byrd, Guana, Costello were in together, you knew that Izzo was smiling. Then later, they were joined by a walkon. Valentine did a good job of running the point with that crew, especially considering that you know whoever you pass it to is going to launch the rock.
It would have been even better if they would have had WE ON on their jerseys where their name goes...........
114-63! Get it right!
Can't blame a walk-on for jacking it up in a blow-out. Heck, that could just about be the highlight of his college career.
As a side note, watching the walk-ons run around furiously while the starters are on the bench laughing is my favorite "victory cigar" moment in any game, any where.
