Default Michigan State goes down in defeat...

Division II Grand Valley State stunned No. 8 Michigan State, the Big Ten favorite, 85-82 in two overtimes Friday night in an exhibition game.

Thank God only a few people saw it cuz it was on the BTN.

God in heaven, can't anything go right for the Big Ten?

I wonder when the media is going to stop drinking the Izzo Kool Aid. Not taking anything away from Izzo but MSU has been nothing special the past few seasons yet it always seems they are ranked top 10 in the preseason every year.

He got to the Final Four so many times that I think they finally just permanently put him in the Top Ten each year.

I agree. I think he's a good coach, but still. He was mentioned as a Kentucky candidate and thank god that didn't happen. The last thing we could take was more defensive slowball. Billy Gillespie has been great so far and plays more like Pitino than Tubby. His defensive scheme is very different: he tries to force his style of defense on the offense, rather than Tubby's more passive style. I just had to buy another Sports Pack on DirecTV so I can watch Kentucky on ESPNU tonight. Sunday Ticket, Gameplan, Sports Pack ... being a sports fan is expensive!
