Anybody planning on voting for Doug Meyer? It would be funny if three million people cast a ballot for a local election in Pratt, KS.

On our way to the arena this morning, we stopped by the Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids. This trip is about more just basketball



Black Dude with the Glasses is closest to the King.   Speculate.

I think OTPT could beat three or four people pictured.

Does that include Rosa Parks?

Ward Gets the Green Light

From the black guy with glasses. To foul away.

“And Nick said, ‘I don’t want to foul,’” Izzo recalled Tuesday. “And DJ says, ‘We don’t care if you foul this year, that doesn’t matter. We don’t have handcuffs on you like last year. Go do your thing, be who you are.’”

We have a crap ton of fouls to give underneath this year.   Just no flagrant I hope.   I also think it's funny they said that, but don't you think that stuff gets out to officials and they'll be more aware of body stuff now?

ESPN's predictions: Final Four, national title and more

With the season almost here, it's time to make some tough calls. One thing is clear: Our experts love Michigan State, Miles Bridges and Tom Izzo.

Let’s hope we don’t see Middle Tennessee State in the first round.

Thanks Tyler....makes sense for all involved. I think Ahrens can still be a player for us, but if not then 2 years somewhere else is better than 1.

Good interview, thanks for the link Floyd. Rome is as close to an MSUSlappy as there is for a national media member.

Tom Izzo says Michigan State will wear a t-shirt as a team as a show of solidarity amid “social injustices” and division in the country.  Two or three teams meetings were held to discuss this.
