Prediction: Kansas will tear up the regular season, win the Big XII, and get bounced in the round of 32.

Couch: Miles Bridges' return to Michigan State would change everything

Through two decades of NCAA tournaments and seven Final Fours at Michigan State, Tom Izzo has only truly had a few legitimate chances at a national championship. After the program’s initial rise, probably only three: 2010, 2014, 2016.

Add 2018 to the list.

Likely lottery pick Miles Bridges turns down draft, returns to Michigan State

Bridges was part of a highly touted recruiting class that lived up to the hype. He was one of the nation's best freshmen and was surrounded by three classmates -- Nick Ward, Cassius Winston and Joshua Langford -- who ranked among the team's top five scorers.

"To have Miles back, it's going to be a special year," said Winston, who attends weekly bible study with Bridges. "A lot of us, if we were in his shoes, it would be really hard to turn down. The NBA is the goal we are all working toward, and he chose a different track."

With Bridges staying, Michigan State will be without only two players -- Eron Harris and Alvin Ellis -- who averaged at least 10 minutes a game last season. Eight of the Spartans' top 10 players return overall.

Another player, power forward Gavin Schilling, will play as a fifth-year senior after missing last season because of a knee injury, and center Ben Carter has petitioned the NCAA for another season of eligibility after missing last season because of a knee injury.

The Spartans have signed 6-11, 220-pound forward Jaren Jackson, one of the top recruits in the country, and 6-8, 270-pound forward Xavier Tillman, who was voted first-team all-state in Michigan. They are trying to land two more highly touted high school seniors, Brandon McCoy, a 7-foot center from California, and Mark Smith, a 6-4 point guard from Illinois.


"We're going to have a great team," Bridges said.

SHOCKULAR:
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.
