Assuming nobody leaves early, Final Four or bust. We lose only Nix, Dawson gets a summer to work on his game unlike last summer when he was recovering and Harris, Costello and Valentine- the biggest jump for a player happens between the freshman and sophomore years. Add in a rapidly improving Payne and a RS in Kaminski...etc...we have a lot to look forward to.
The RCMB...is one of the most awful, alarming, inappropriate, disgusting, and offensive msg boards in the history of the internet.
Not sure how much faith I'd put in Kaminski's game until we see him against good competition.
Need a cold blooded leader. Hopefully Valentine can fill those shoes
I cant wait to see Valentine after a summer of work.
Team lacks discipline and shooters IMO.
Duke, UK, and potentially others (IU, etc) will also be really good
If we can trick Coach Krzyzewski into saying his own name backwards, perhaps he will be pushed back to the fifth dimension
Yeah! Final Four or bust (again) I'm thinking bust (again) in the Sweet 16. Totally overmatched and overrated. MSU basketball's got nothing right now.
Sparty > Walverines
Holy hell get a hold of yourself
I will relish bumping this in twelve months time.
Holy fuck, talk about a meltdown...
Losing Nix's big ass is huge tho. No doubt. Fuck man. Parker you bitch.
We Hope For Better Things; It Shall Rise From the Ashes.
UK will be preseason #1. Duke will be up there. I think we'll be preseason #2.
IU stands to lose a ton.
Bust, unless we're playing in 1975 before the 3 point shot was invented. Then we'll win the whole goddamn thing.
Welcome back valenti!
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
Appling has to make the final four or the streak ends
Costello had some moments this season. I suspect he wont be the walking foul he was at times after an offseason of work.
We one legit NBA prospect on the roster in Harris. Payne has a shot if he can develop some kind of fluid post game. He is 6'10 with a stupid wingspan and he cant shoot a legit jump hook.
The flyers on reaches need to stop. Guys like Guana who dominate class C need to not even be looked at anymore. Don't give me the Suton comparison either as Suton is light years the player Guana is in his 3rd year, I really want to like Trice as well, but again dude is half the size of Nietzel at this point and can't get his own shot.
People need to realize this is not 2000 anymore, the game is different and the physical athletes are no longer dominate. You HAVE to be able to shoot the ball and Izzo has ONE freaking guy who can do it.
Really? #2? Based on what? I'm not flaming just curious as to what you see.
You guys do realize IU lost yesterday.
If SS are good enough for you then become a Michigan fan.
Them are fighting words big guy, fuck scUM
I'm as disappointed as anyone, believe me that fucking sucked, but to say our program has NOTHING right now is a fucking joke.

Prepare to be downvoted for truth telling. Izzo loves his type of guy, and his type are losers like Gauna. I am sick of looking at him. Kaminski will probably be another Gauna. Costello is a stiff too. Trice can't play either.
should be better next season if everyone comes back.
Nix will be missed but Costello will fill his shoes nicely and is a little faster and plays with a little more energy.
They will be faster and I think valentine will take a big step.
I saw Costello numerous times in person, he is someone I'm not worried about at all. Guana well he is a robot and looks like he is still thinking way to hard on the court. Trice is a decent stop gap at bet and can give some minutes on some nights.
Kaminiski is a wild card as far I could tell....he played decent comp in Ohio if I'm not mistaken and more than held his own.
Valentine needs to find a better handle against pressure and find consistent range out to at least 17 ft. He is the type of PG Izzo needs and I hope he can develop into that position.
I didn't say those words.
