"It's just been a perfect storm," he said. "I don't like to be an excuse-maker, but with the injuries and the guys I've had to throw off the team, it's been difficult. I blame myself for most of it. Jud [Heathcote] always used to say it's hard for your leader to lead if he's struggling with his own game. Kalin's been doing that all season. The injury affected his speed, and that changed his whole game. I don't think I've done a good enough job helping him with that. "Honestly though, I still think we could get our act together before this is over. Kalin's 95 percent now. I have to be able to get them to defend and rebound better. I still think we can be a tough out in March if we can get some confidence back and get there."

. . .the poor play has nothing to do with Lucious, and unless Tom Izzo has lost his team, the Spartans will surely play better - and probably much better relative to their last three efforts - the rest of the way.

How much is Korie Lucious worth? Ken Pomeroy weighs in on the Spartans. The key clause in that quote, of course, is the one that begins 'unless'.

The question shouldn't be if MSU sucks, it should be if it sucks less than everyone else on the bubble. The Spartans aren't playing up to their usual standards, they're not winning the NCAA title, and the Final Four seems like a pipe dream. This was the team ranked No. 2 in the preseason polls? But Michigan State has hardly hit bottom.

A little perspective, please - Michigan State hasn't hit 'rock bottom'. From Mike Miller at NBC. The "spoiled fanbase" meme is implied, rather than stated.

Green said he thinks the Spartans simply "expect to win" when they take the floor. Izzo believes complacency, possibly the product of two straight Final Four runs, is a possible culprit. The question is, how much failure does it take to eliminate complacency?
