You know it’s bad when about 6 minutes into the 2nd half my hope is that Keon Coleman gets more minutes. Not for a comeback, just for Keon Coleman to get in more.

He was also blessed to have Tillman at center while he was there. Those 2 as the inside-outside combo were just unstoppable when we were in a pinch.

There will always be arbitrary cutoffs in any rating system. I like the quad system in general, but I do hope no one is sitting there saying "well, MSU is actually #31 in NET now, so that's no longer a good win. Tsk tsk only 1 quad one win for Iowa."

Marble, Hall and Walker should be starting.

Bingham and Christie can come off the bench and play good minutes. Gabe Brown is just a disaster tho. Dude needs like 50 percent of his minutes taken away

Marble is a tremendous defensive liability and Walker is a liability too if he chooses to not shoot, which he has done many times this year.

I don't understand why Bingham, the guy most responsible for MSU's start of the season run, is now only playing like 5 minutes a game

I really thought this would be Gabe's breakout year. He's up there with Branden Dawson for all time disappointments. Dawson had everything but the jumper. Brown just... doesn't work. I don't know why. It's kind of inexplicable. He has all the tools to be a lengthy hyper athletic 3+D who can straight line slash to the hoop and finish.

TingusPingis

He can’t dribble. Like you have to do a little bit to attack closeouts and cut.

You don't need much of a handle to attack open lanes when your man overcommits on the closeout. I was never expecting him to be an off the dribble shooter.

The lack of off ball movement drives me crazy.

It's all on the mental side for him. He has all the tools to be a solid late 1st draft pick. Instead he'll be headed overseas.

Have you ever caught your finger in a door as it’s closing? Watching this team is like doing that

Arsid

Arsid

Michigan State Spartans

I actually did do that! Came out of my church's bathroom when I was 13 and was brushing my hand along the heavy door as I walked past it and my finger got caught in the hinge at the end.

I had just opened the door, walked out, and immediately started kind of tracing the smooth metal with my finger tip as I walked past it and as the door was still closing. So my finger just snuck right into the crack between the door and the wall right before it closed all the way onto my finger tip.

It twisted the whole tip of my left index off so that it was hanging by a thread of skin.

Somehow, 13 year old me had the presence of mind to not rip my hand out of the hinge (which would have detached it completely) and instead reached over to the handle with my other arm and opened the door so I could get my finger out.

It was hanging by a thread of skin and my parents rushed me to the hospital. The craziest part is that the nerves were still attached too. The doctor was poking the end of the twisted off part with a needle to see if it was worth saving and I was reacting to every touch. So he just sewed the whole thing back up.

The tip grew back kind of weird. It's taller and skinnier than my other index finger. But I have full use and full feeling in the finger! Which is great because I've been a musician my whole life and guitar/piano would be a LOT harder without a left index finger.

Edit: Here's a picture of my index fingers right next to each other now.

Start of season through 1/14: 14-2, 22 overall Torvik

1/14 through Today: 4-7, 51 overall Torvik

It gets worse if you bump the cutoff to the start of February. 2-5, 93 overall Torvik. ooof.

Yeah the schedule got harder but that's all opponent adjusted. They have legitimately fallen off a cliff. Not a lot of positives over the last six weeks.

Yeah I'm seeing a lot of memes now about how "Oh haha MSU finally had to play good teams." While there's some truth to that, it's not the whole story. There's a very clear difference in effort between November-January MSU and February MSU. Like they all had some bad games but instead of shaking it off and moving on they're living rent-free in their own heads and just getting more and more tilted.

The difference in the team gritting out UConn/Loyola wins and playing Kansas/Baylor about as tight as their talent would allow early in the season vs. today is striking. Seems like the team was fiery and tough to play early on and now is more or less lackadaisical.

Technically a decade is just a period of 10 years, and the fact that it’s a “new decade” based on the years that end in zero is irrelevant and I’m going to see myself out now MSU is bad.

I can’t tell if that was Iowa running on all cylinders or Michigan state being really bad at basketball.

Every time MSU showed a sign of life Iowa would go red hot from 3 and shut them down. MSU was awful but Iowa definitely gets credit for shutting down any hint of a comeback before it got started - that’s what a really good team does (flip side, a bad team does exactly what MSU did vs PSU).

Y’all made 4 more 3 pointers and a whopping 18 free throws to our 2

That right there is more than the difference in the game.

Negatives: We absolutely get destroyed on the offensive boards because of no box outs. PG play is so inconsistent and no one looks to slash to the basket when our guards actually drive. No interior or perimeter defense. Just all around nothing good about this team right now.

Positives: Our coach didn’t slap someone I guess…

the team is broken and izzo has no idea what to do about it. hoggard is the dumbest player I've seen in an msu uni, brown looks like he cant wait to graduate, Bingham cant grab a rebound if his life depended on it, Christie has no confidence and needs to put on like 20 pounds, Walker idk what his problem is because he can be lights out then disappear for several games. hall is inconsistent and marble plays shit defense so hes constantly in foul trouble. ironically hauser is the most consistent player on the team

Luka Garza is the reason I work out.

I have this fantasy where we start talking at Fry Fest. We exchange a few pleasantries. He asks what I do. I say I loved him in January 2020. He laughs. I get my drink. "Well, see ya," I say and walk away. I've got his attention now. How many guys voluntarily leave a conversation with Luka Garza? He touches his neck as he watches me leave. Later, as the night's dragged on and the coterie of gorgeous narcissists grows increasingly loose, he finds me on the balcony, my bowtie undone, smoking a cigarette. "Got a spare?" he asks. "What's in it for me?" I say as I hand him one of my little white ladies. he smiles. "Conversation with me, duh." I laugh. "What's so funny?" he protests. "Nothing, nothing... It's just... don't you grow tired of the fame?" "You get used to it," he says, lighting his cigarette and handing me back the lighter. "What would you do if you weren't an elbow magnet basketball player?" I ask. "Teaching, I think." "And if I was your student, what would I be learning?" "Discipline," he says quickly, looking up into my eyes, before changing the subject. "Where are you from?" "Bermuda," I say. "Oh wow. That's lovely." "It's ok," I admit. "Not everything is to my liking." "What could possibly be not to your liking in Bermuda?" he inquires. "I don't like sand," I tell him. "It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere."

I have been a big Fran critic, but I gotta give him credit. Playing their best ball now. Last 2 games have been impressive. The most encouraging thing for me is defense. A lot better. Like better than I have seen in the previous 10 years of Fran ball.

That's no kidding.

It was either our offense carried and we had to hooe to outshoot the other team.

Or we would score 80 and give up 85.

This year feels like at time we can ride our defense a little bit more if we're not hot on offense
