I've asked twice.  I'll try one more time.  Got any names of quality 2/3 guys that were available?



Regardless of the timing, was Izzo under some kind of mandate to only recruit one specific player for that spot?

Worth noting. @MSU_Basketball will face Duke in Champions Classic, could see North Carolina in PK80, and will see Notre Dame in Big Ten/ACC.

Looking ahead at Michigan's State basketball's 2017-18 non-conference schedule

After playing Notre Dame, the non-conference schedule will take an odd detour to league play. In 2017-18, the Big Ten will play its conference tournament one week early -- from Wednesday Feb. 28, though Sunday March 4 -- in order to host the event at Madison Square Garden. The change will lop one week off the regular season and condense the schedule.

To accommodate the change, Big Ten teams will play one home and one road conference game on the week of Dec. 2. Those matchups are to-be-announced.

While Michigan State has built its conference schedule, it's done so in-part without knowing the extent of two key early conference games. Think about it: Perhaps the Spartans land a pair or manageable games, say, Nebraska and Rutgers? Or they could be lined up against Minnesota and Northwestern for two huge games.

Either way, MSU will be capping a challenging stretch with a pair of league games, one being on the road.

Schilling, Carter progress

Izzo said last week that senior center Gavin Schilling had been "working out hard," but it will still be about a month before he can go live with the rest of his teammates after missing all of last season with a knee injury. It will likely be longer for fellow big man Ben Carter, who came to MSU as a grad transfer last year but also lost the season to a knee injury.

Izzo said Carter "is still a couple months away" from returning as he recovers from his second serious knee injury. Before the the injury he sustained during preseason workouts last year, Carter tore his ACL in January of his senior season at UNLV.

I have a feeling Carter might never play.

Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

Feels like one of those things that'll be "wait and see" the entire year for Carter.

Well, I think Izzo is eating the schollie that's left, so if Carter gets hurt again or can't go we'll have 2. Also, even if he's just servicable to get on the court, it gives us 5 more big man fouls and protects big pudding some.

You're probably right but none of us knows what lays ahead - we may still need him.

Goins is now a 3 & D I guess....
MSU's Kenny Goins adds range in quest for more playing time


DIMONDALE, MIch. — A weight has been lifted off Kenny Goins’ shoulders.

Well, actually, off his knee.

Gone is the bulky brace the Michigan State junior wore after suffering knee injuries during his redshirt freshman season. And Goins is adding a few things in its place.

More quickness. A few pounds. And a three-point shot.

“Once you get healthy and you get to spend some time in the gym, you get to improve on areas of your game that people didn’t really get to see,” Goins said Thursday after the opening night of the Moneyball Pro-Am at Aim High Sports.
