This about covers it.
I'm pretty sure that what they would never do is key the break on their own when the game is over and the other team is conceding. Apples and oranges.
You can see Dawson coming in from the weak side pointing to the rim asking for the alley oop.
But as Phil pointed out, Izzo said he didn't like the play, so he is holding to that standard. Even if he didn't comment on not liking it I wouldn't have had a problem with it.
Derrick Nix scores 17 points to lift the Spartans over the Cornhuskers, 66-56.
It wasn't Izzo who made thr dunk. It was two of his players, who made a bad decision in the views of some. I personally thought it was unecessary, but nice given Dawson did the dunk. He basically stole that bucket back where his knee buckled. But I am a biasd Msu fan... who can see how it looked hypocritical - and it was. Izzo is the one who has always been mad about running it up in the past, and it wasn't like he told his players to do that alley oop. He was mad about it. And I am sure Dawson and Appling got an earful after the game about it. We may have not seen it, but Izzo was clearly upset about it - that is all you guys need to know.
My apologies for bad grammar and/or spelling, wrote this one on my phone.

According to Detroit News today the talk was about Dawson going down not the last minute dunk. All the Neb coach about the dunk was 'we were pressing them so why not?' props to him...

Are you insinuating that MSU players executed an alley oop on purpose?
Anyone else picture UW fans keeping a list of late game dunks by MSU?
Every time, muttering... "I'll remember that...".
I'm not insinuating anything. I'm saying that's what happened. I have no problem with it whatsoever. Only reason I brought it up was to point it out to those here who said MSU would never do it.
Sure he did, because why the hell not at that point? It's still completely different from the play (and reaction to the play) your Vadger brethren won't let go.
Herp a derp
tRCMB - Where MSU fans eat their own.
And continuing to not acknowledge the fact that "it" is not the same thing. You don't have a problem with MSU's press break. You do have a problem with Izzo not liking Wisconsin initiating a fast break for no reason? Or do you just love playfully juxtaposing things against each other when they share nothing in common but the way the ball went in the hoop?
Izzo seems to be consistent in not being happy about last second dunks with big leads. His players or opponents players.
I'm not sure who "those here who said MSU would never do it" are, but since Izzo seems to lack the physical ability to stop his players from dunking open shots in some instances, perhaps the UW mantra should be revised from "MSU would never do it" to "Izzo would reprimand his players for doing it".
Your well-structured argument is nullified by the fact that Dawson pointed to the hoop, CLEARLY asking for the ball to be thrown upwards at such a velocity and angle that he could catch it and simultaneously throw it through the basket. There is NO denying this fact; and hence, there is no denying the fact that Izzo is a hypocrite and that two completely unrelated situations are now the same.
Oh, but I don't really care about this argument at all. Honestly, don't give two shits. Nope, the past 5 posts of mine clearly demonstrate that this is something I could not care less about.
Leave it to Rexrode to make an article out of it:
"The lob dunk, I hate that. And yet, he was right, they were chasing us all around. And he was good enough to not even care about it."
Good enough for me. I'm sure Wisconsin fans will etch this dunk into their collective memories as yet another example of how classless Izzo is though.
Nice try. Not good enough. Still a hypocrite.
Clemenza, is that better? Either way, I'm siding with Izzo on this one. I would love to see you tell Izzo to ask Lupe for his dick back. Dick.
Its best just to ignore him. He is such a cancer on this board.
Good advice. No wonder he is embarrassed about his former user names.
Being on the court and playing aggressive defense are two different things, dumbass.
From water we're born, in fire we die. We seed the stars.
Keep in mind that "aggressive defense" at Wisconsin generally means standing around near the key while holding your nuts and falling over as the guy with the ball runs past you.
So, you can see how he might be confused looking at that photo, which clearly shows 4 MSU players standing around.

You didn't watch it so you didn't see Appling try to dribble out the clock for 18 seconds before the alley-oop.
On a side note, I didn't see the Payne dunk that got a technical. WTF kind of call is that? Is the Payne dunk-technical the new Raymar Morgan travel? Where the player has a "reputation" built by sh**ty refs so anytime it's remotely questionable they just call it?
This. And this means for the grown ups to continue, since the 99 posse of 2 want to give each other hjs over their lack of spine.
