Tell Byrd that it's practice
Wouldn't mind if we lost, just don't want to get blown out
Or the MoneyBall League in Lansing.
Small chance I go to the game Sunday. We better win if I'm there

It could be regardless of the outcome vs. IU on Sunday.
Wish IU had a tougher opponent than PSU today. Someone like Iowa who would force them to play hard for 40 minutes.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
And have Payne tell Dawson that he's a punk for leaving his jearsey in the hotel room.
People have opinions..
This game is not a must win...but we minus well, it would be a blessing in the skies, if we have any type of delusions of grandeur.
If we were to win I think the IU loss would be important than the MSU win because you would have put the B1G favorite behind in the race. The effect on IU with regard to their remaining games would be a wonderful thang to behold!
Win 4 out of the next 5 even with a loss to Indiana and MSU will be in great position.
This has potential
What's wrong with all you sad sallies? IU is beatable as Wusconsin showed. Zeller is weak and State can take advantage of that and take IU out of their game.
Win at IU and the B!G is OVER!
Nίκη για MSU
1. I think it can't be underestimated that the kids will be pumped and play even more inspired with the new unis.
2. I also think it might be time for the OP to retire that username.
Needed to split @wisc and @IU and since we already locked that up I hope they play like there's nothing to lose because there really isn't. Play loose and who knows
The key to IU is Nix and Payne having a field day against Zeller, much like they ate Sullinger alive last season.

Their game is their guards...making 11 3-pointers tonight

Zeller's down...doesn't look serious
A win would be awesome and would give this team a great deal of confidence. However a lose is never a good thing, but it's not going to derail this and make them go into a tailspin. Besides I think we all would be pretty happy with a split in Madison and Bloomington.
My biggest concern about this game is that I believe there is no way Nix can hang with Zeller on either end of the floor. Zeller is far to quick for him.. runs the floor as fast as a guard too...has a complete offensive game and is TREMENDOUS on help defense. I don't think Nix can keep up.. even at the opening tip.. let alone later in the game. The rest of the match-ups could be good for State. Dawson is stronger and perhaps more of an athlete than Olidipo has seen all year but Olidipo is a better player than Dawson has seen. PG's? Appling is stronger and more experienced than Yogi Ferrel. Watford at 6-9 is a load at PF for most teams, if he comes to play.. but then when has he had to deal with a 6-10 PF like Payne? The rest of the subs work well against the IN subs though the Hoosiers are deeper in bodies and bodies with significant minutes playe thus far off the bench.
MUCH.. VERY MUCH will depend on how the zebras call the game. MSU is much more physical than IU.. if the refs call it ticky tacky.. forgetaboutit!
Who guarded Zeller last year? Because he was non-existent in the first game we played against Indiana.
I'm looking at our remaining schedule and fuuuuuuuuu it's deadly. Even if we play incredible, I wouldn't be disappointed with 4 more losses. Wins in Bloomington, Ann Arbor, Columbus, or West Lafayette are bonuses...lose a tough one against UM, MINN, IU, or Wisc at home. I just can't shake the troubles we will face at Assembly Hall, but obviously IU is not as unbeatable as they were made out to be.

F*ck Feb. 12. I will always see them as some second rate opponent.
