Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
I don't give a fuck about Louisville.
Location: Mumbai, India
Particularly against an unstoppable Colorado State team.
Hopefully they meet MSU in the Elite 8, bring it.
Had originally picked them to win it all. Wondering about that decision to change it now.
Incredibly good when Russ smith is playing this well
this.....pretty sure CSU is full of 3 star guys
pretty sure larry eustachy is drunk again from that interview
Behold the walls of Sparta: 10000 men and every one a brick.
i hate sounded cowardly, but a heavy turnover team playing a team that creates turnovers with the press doesn't exactly strike confidence in me. going to be awful tough, but its do able.
This guy is upset...
found out they stopped selling ice cream at half
Seeing as how we can't inbound the ball. I do not want to play these guys.
That press is going to disrupt our sets.
As long as we don't let them make shots, we don't have to worry about the press. It's that simple.

Have you ever said, "MSU looks damn good"?
Louisville and Duke say this.
"We'll play anyone, anyplace, anytime!" - Tom Izzo
That press very seldom gets called for hacking. That's what worries me.
Remember how unbeatable Louisville looked against Arizona in 2009 just 2 days before we played them? That team was on a celebratory march to the championship until they ran into MSU in the Elite 8 in Indy.
We'll make a game of it if we meet each other.
They are good overall, but they are more of a bad match-up for us, specifically. We are obviously incredibly sloppy crossing half court, but we are even worse when trying to break a press by lobbing it across half-court (and usually into the damn stands).
Izzo needs to play street ball against Louisville.

Like MSU they have one of the Top 5 coaches in D1
Laying the groundwork for a classic "i told you so" moment Tanner?
The #1 overall seed in the tournament is good? Well no shit Sherlock.
Maybe I have a short memory, but I don't seem to remember the press being our biggest issue with them last year. Ours bigs were just absolutely nonexistent, and we couldn't hit jack shit all game.
Defensively, Deng ate up Nix and Payne one on one down low last year, separately. I don't think history will repeat itself if we rematch with Payne and Nix both on the floor at the same time. Both men have shown the ability to recognize the defender and dish off to the other. I don't know if Louisville would have an answer to that, especially if Deng gets into foul trouble. I just hope we are still alive to find out next weekend.

Dude, I sitting there watching the game. Make a harmless observation and the boners turn it into a troll thread. Fucking hilarious. The self loathing on here is funny.
