He's got more experience than a true frosh. Last year Draymond would have taken every shot in the last 5 minutes. This team is still trying to figure out who will/can do that this year.
Did I miss us going to the Final Four last year? Do you think UNC or Kentucky will lose their first game or more than 10 % of the rest?
And lost to a #4 seed in the SS.
Everyone wants to win every game. hasn't happened since 1976. No reason to expect it now. This game is meaningless in terms of it's impact on how this season turns out. There is zero difference between 24-7 and 25-6. or 20-11 and 21-10. or whatever. We gave 3 freshmen significant minutes and they looked very good. Anyone with half a brain knew this game would look a lot like it did. A very talented, but young and raw team that needs to figure out who's going to play with who.
Frankly, the only thing that's troubling were the turnovers by Nix. Otherwise Dawson looked incredible, Harris is for real on D and shows he has a nice stroke. valentine is even better than advertised. This team is loaded and will be just fine. Freaking out over a gimmick game in early November is so pointless I can't believe anyone is actually. That's not a loser's mentality....it's knowing that the team is young and will grow from this. Not letting an early non-con loss bother is a sign of strength and maturity, not weakness.
The team is better with him in. He's smart and a scoring threat. I think he would have made a difference.
we still should have won............fukkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk
I just don't see it.
you are the 60 year old man sitting at home on a friday night trying to bait college kids into an internet slap fight by saying we are going to lose the entire game. and they suck at life? You are the single most pathetic troll i've ever seen on any forum in the history of the internet. You are the very definition of failure
is msu done with camo games? i didn't attend west-f^&cking point.lose 'em all anyway.
Who was the third freshman that got minutes again?
Need more Byrd.
exactly...and who do you think got more from tonight, MSU on the biggest American Air Base in Europe or Kansas playing SE Missouri State at home?
Dont forget Guana. Showed his heart out there tonight..
KU is over ranked. They lost most of their talent and are going to be extremely dependent on Withy for offense now on top of defense and rebounding. They have a lot of freshmen who will play. it should be an interesting game.
So are we.

Simple question...why do Izzo teams always need all this time to gel with a lot of the same parts year after year? It's not like the offense changes and on D it is pretty simple, play tough Man and have good help side.
How do guys forget all that in one off season year after year?
People love to say this, but it did not happen.
After the horrid start our team outscored Uconn significantly and showed flashes of being a good team. Valentine and Harris took turns making some Frosh plays, it happens. Nix and Payne need to step it up. Overall the team needs to cut down on turnovers and make better decisions. The game was not as bad as we think imho.
I said *want* implying it's not realistic.
This team did not want to win the game for the first half and at many points in the second half when they had opportunities to pull away.
I don't care if we lose if we have our all the entire game. This team didn't.
I'm amazed so many of you are excusing the team's effort.
We played a team with a new coach and mostly new starting five and lost with 4 out of 5 starters returning from last year and a stellar recruit in Gary Harris in yet another marquee opening season game.
This team had an entire off season and two preseason games to get some of their shit together and shit the bed in a program game. You win, recruits are impressed. You lose (especially to a team we had no business losing to) and recruits look at our program and go meh.
If that doesn't make you salty like me, you have a problem with competition.
Kansas getting confidence by winning a game while the other team managed to crap the bed for 15 mins and put themselves in a 16 pt hole. Oh yea that team also lost.
No, Izz o needs to figure out who he is going to put on the floor with Nix, Dawson, Harris and Appling. He has to pick between Valentine, Trice and Kearney. Too bad Byrd and Gauna are liabilities on defense.
Yes, but we REALLY missed the captain down the stretch.
We gave 3 freshman significant minutes? Would love to know what game some of you watched.
If they are over ranked, what is Michigan State?
