Per Coach Izzo: Son wired with listening devices; to sit on Duke bench during the game
"If they want to mock us, I'm telling them it's not over. It will never be over here. It's just starting." - Mark Dantonio, 2007
"Im pretty sure his name is Steven Mateen Cleaves"

First Jabari, now his own son. Cue the Blue Wall with an "Izzo's Gang No Longer Green Giant" story.
Steven Mateen Izzo picked Duke over MSU in his bracket per his dad on Mike & Mike, so everyone is joking about it.
Also said he has a scholarship offer, and took a jab at Izzo saying:
"I've been planning it on Twitter and Facebook, that's why Izzo doesn't know"
this story is crying out for an Onion article.
I have a feeling Izzo is going to get the last laugh this year.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
so what, with like 2 minutes left and MSU up 10, Steven stands up from his seat, walks to coach K, kicks him in the nuts for ruining his bracket, then calmly walks past the scorers table to sit on the MSU bench.
is that what's going down tomrorrow night?
i'd like to see that
Ok can anyone give more back story please? I actually don't know much about Steve Mateen.
He's Tom Izzo's and Mateen Cleaves' love child.
Keeping the sunshiners in check since 2000.
Makes sense... I was curious what the Duke angle was, does he like Duke or something? How old is he?
He's actually a blue devil. A real. blue. devil.
(think its been quoted that hes always liked Duke and has Duke beating MSU in his bracket)
Tom's son. Middle name is Mateen because of, well, Mateen.
He picked Duke over Michigan State in his bracket. Not sure how old he is, but around 11 or 12.
Dominating Press Conferences Since 2007
You could always read the rest of the thread.
I did... I wasn't sure how much was joke and how much was based in reality that's why I asked for more info.
Ahh ok. I remember them talking about Steven Mateen Izzo as Izzo's son in a broadcast before but I never knew the age or this info about Duke. I figured tho he would be 13 or under, but that was only a guess. thanks for the info. +1
Ugh, lets start getting used to that.
Steven is thirteen.
My son was on his team at Izzo camp.
A real father would never bust his sons bracket!!!!
So izzo is either a bad coach if he loses, or a bad father if he wins. There is no middle ground
Your average UofM fan and I have something in common, neither of us went to UofM. Though we do share One major difference, I got Accepted.
13 and 82 days...
really i have no idea, i didn't know his sons first name until this thread.
