TOM IZZO RUMORS & GOSSIP

Michigan State Basketball: Counting down the top 20 players of the Izzo era. #8 Adreian Payne

Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images A couple weeks ago we started counting down the top 20 players for Michigan State basketball over the 20 years of Tom Izzo being in charge of the program. Just a reminder, when making this list, stats were not the only thing considered. Skill, leadership, what they accomplished at Michigan State and their impact on the program were all looked at. What...

Michigan State Basketball: Why Eron Harris will be an elite guard

After two years at West Virginia, Eron Harris decided that he needed  a change of venue. He then decided that he might be a great fit for Tom Izzo’s Michigan State Spartans. The past year, Harris has been playing scout team guard against the Spartans in practice. He has emulated the competition that his future teammates would be matching up against. Now, it is time for Harris...

Michigan State basketball recruiting: The impact of the 2015 class

Before we highlight the incoming recruits coming in for the Michigan State Spartans, this class could have been one of Tom Izzo’s greatest in his time at MSU with Caleb “Biggie” Swanigan. Unfortunately, he decided to de-commit from MSU and take his talents elsewhere. The good news is that there are still three very, very high caliber players coming in for the Spartans and each...

PHOTO: Tom Izzo shows support for Memphis Grizzlies

“Whoop That Trick” by Terrence Howard was one of the songs on the soundtrack of the 2005 movie Hustle & Flow. It’s edgy and pretty much self-explanatory. If you’re in the mindset to kick some butt, this is the song to listen to.  Howard’s character in the film, DJay, is a pimp and an aspiring rapper from Memphis. Starting back in the 2013 playoffs, “Whoop That Trick”...

This isn’t Tom Izzo’s greatest March masterpiece

It is very easy to think that any particularly special achievement — enhanced by the adrenaline or excitement you feel in the present moment — is the best ever. Once in a great while, the euphoria and breathlessness surrounding a given sports moment are not out of step with a genuine analytical appraisal of what just happened. The 2008 Wimbledon gentlemen’s singles final...

Should Tom Izzo be worried about his Spartans?

Michigan State lost at Nebraska on Saturday. You might not think that’s too big a deal. After all, Michigan State lost at home to the Huskers a season ago, and not only made the NCAA tournament, but gained a No. 4 seed and eventually progressed to the Elite Eight. This is a Tom Izzo team. The Spartans play in the Big Ten. They’re still a good bet to make the Big Dance, right...

Izzo criticizes coaches, players after embarrassing loss

If you’re a low-tier college basketball team hoping to beat an established, premier program, travel to Michigan for a game.  This afternoon, a couple weeks after NJIT defeated the then-No. 17 Wolverines, No. 25 Michigan State (8-4) fell to Texas Southern (2-8), 71-64. According to noted college basketball expert Ken Pomeroy, this was a bigger upset than NJIT’s victory against...
