But that's not why I'm posting this, although it's definitely a great CBB article and worth the read. Really the thing that irked me was a short sentence: "But if you had a tournament including all 17 of Tom Izzo’s teams in East Lansing, would this one even get out of the first round? I doubt it." Really? Frankly yes this team would make it out of the first round. Is this really how people view State, as a fluke? Or is this one Chicago writer just misguided? Well either way, I know and you should know that this team would easily beat up on last years team, 2002, 03, 04, 06, 07, 08 and 10.
