"I'm sure it looks like if I would have made the move that it would have been a worse move now that he (James) is gone, but I would have made it for more than one reason, and I didn't make the move for more than one reason. So it had no affect on me, as far as my job. And if he would have come back, I would have been happy. It would have had no affect on me to say, 'Oh, look what I would have missed out on.' "That's where giving me a chance to really figure out what I wanted to do helps, because I had no buyers or sellers remorse in this, and certainly didn't feel any last night, and wouldn't have, either way."

Yet Another Basketball Blog: The State of Coaching (Summer 2010)

Interesting fact: Looking at the last 7 years of data for active Big Ten coaches, Tom Izzo teams rank 1st in the Big Ten in average adjusted offensive efficiency but only 5th in average adjusted defensive efficiency. Fabulous stuff, as always, over at YABB.

Live-Blogging Tom Izzo's Press Conference - SB Nation Detroit

Sean Yuille does the yeoman's work of transcribing press conference quotes from Simon, Hollis, and especially Izzo. The story of the press conference clearly was the exchange between Lynn Henning and Tom Izzo, wherein Henning challenged Izzo's media silence, and Izzo proceeded to absolutely eviscerate him during a good ten minutes of back-and-forth. In case you're curious, Henning's column has already been posted, and contains this gem: "Izzo has built a castle of a basketball production in East Lansing and could have the top-ranked team this autumn. His personal standing, even if he picked up a bruise or two during the Cavs vigil, has been impeccable. Which is why no one begrudged him taking a long look at Gilbert's overture." Words fail me.

As Izzo exited the stage after a musical number, from the darkness the audience heard him say, "I gotta quick change now." Oops. That mike was supposed to be off. As the audience laughed, Broadway performer and narrator Merwin Foard, still on stage, looked up to the ceiling and delivered the perfect ad-lib: "Lord, you sound just like Tom Izzo." And the crowd went wild. "'Izzo Goes to Broadway' gets extra laughs with unscripted event" - MLive.com.

Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere: Mapping Tom Izzo's Non-Conference Scheduling

Looking back at MSU basketball's out-of-conference scheduling during the Tom Izzo era.

With all due respect to [Roy] Williams, whose Tar Heels blasted past the Spartans on the way to national titles in both 2005 and 2009, Izzo's never gone 5-11 in the Big Ten. So keep your eyes peeled on the sidelines this weekend, because the best college basketball coach in the land will be in action at the Final Four. And, yes, Mike Krzyzewski will be there, too.

Michigan St.'s Tom Izzo is college basketball's best coach, bar none
