Aside from scUM, whom he has had to deal with all the pay for play throughout his career, who do you think Izzo dislikes the most. He is a good guy, and political as hell, so he will never show it, but I believe he likes to beat purdue as much as anyone these days. The Wisky rivalry has died down a little. 3line is clean and classy as far as I know. Painter was allegedly the rat leading to a 1 game suspension. Their fans and family are classless dbags to Dawson and Harris. I would rate his dislike at
the rest i think he generally roots for.
UM is so far ahead of everyone else it's difficult to put on a scale.
After that, probably shifts from time to time. Wisconsin bit has died down some, but I doubt he and Bo are on each other's Christmas card lists.
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
I guess I didnt exclude scUM. Oh well, I just hate those corksuckers.
Just my guess, but the years of frustration in coaching against Wisconsin, the close games, Bo's personality, and their frustrating style of play has me thinking they're at the top.
scUM is absolutely #1. He saw them cheat throughout Jud and the first few years of him coaching. Had scUM played fair we would have a few more BT titles and maybe an extra FF or NC. It took us years (and we're still working on it) breaking into the PSL because of fucking Ed Martin.
I doubt Izzo has anything against Purdue. Keady's tree and Heathcote's tree are like brothers. I think as fans on this board our sudden hate for Purdue is just us. We won some recruiting battles. Just let the Purdue dregs complain awhile and forget it.
For me, i wonder if Izzo has anything against Illinois now. He was pretty steamed that Webber got run out, even though it was inevitable. And maybe a little extra angst about OSU. Matta is so un-Big Ten, and i think there's some suspicion about his recruiting tactics, though Izzo will never come out and say it.
But really other than scUM and Wisconsin, i think Izzo gets the same warmth, respect, and admiration that he reaches out with himself.
WTF? Indiana, our protected football rivals.
Forks the fuck down bitches.
Don't post poop!
God, that whole Indiana thing is over played.
Fuck you. Forks DOWN!
I doubt there's much love lost between Izzo and Painter since he got suspended.
I'll wait for the book to come out.
Painters a little tattle tale. He thinks because he plays it by the book anyone having more success than him must be cheating. It's much easier to believe that line of bs rather than admitting youre a fucking failure, who with the exception of one recruiting class where 3 extremely talented young men misplaced their faith in a man who would go on to supplement that class with absolutely nothing of value. Gene Keadys hairpiece must be rolling around in its cage when he sees that his legacy of post season failure has now just become a legacy of failure.
"losing Caleb Benenoch is a blow that Dantonio will never recover from. Izzo has lost it as well. Hoke and Beilein own the state."
1: The scummers.
2: Bo's flopping white boys.
3: Everybody else.
I think most coaches know exactly which coaches/programs bend the rules. I am not sure about matta, but if he is dirty, then he is probably up there. I think Bo and Izz have made some peace. I just have a feeling all of the antics coming from west lafayette have not gone unnoticed.
tZippy, is that you?
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
I would put purdue above Wisconsin as of late....someone started a thread last year asking why Izzo was talking to Vlad for so long after the game at the Bres so I will guess there is some mutual respect there unless Im mistaken
To die in ann arbor is redundant
If you venture outside the conference, you need to add UDM (or are they back to being just U of Detroit again?).
I have the impression he doesn't care for UK since they ran off Tubby.
I'm sure there are many more. ND still hasn't been scheduled since Jud decided they should go F themselves, don't know if that rift continues or is just overshadowed by the Delaney/Football issues with the Irish.
definitely wisconsin. no doubt.
Or UK since they started blatantly cheating.
No, not since Perry Watson left. And they're still UDM, but the team just goes by Detroit.
Easiest way to judge is by looking at the post-game handshake length. His handshakes with Bo used to be incredibly short. As someone mentioned, in the last 2-3 years they've gotten a bit longer. His shakes with Painter have gotten progressively shorter since the tattle tail incident. Yesterday's was a 'good job' and walk by. Still think UofM is so far and away the most hated. Have never been able to get a good read on what he thinks about Matta.
