But only temporarily, so don't panic. With football on a bye this week and basketball hosting media day this afternoon, today seems like a good day to turn the attention to hoops for a little bit. Tom Izzo appears quite optimistic heading into the season, and it's setting up to be a fun group to follow.
Izzo just likes these guys because he can yell at them.
These are the type of Izzo teams that tend to excel.
I really hope so.
Probably for good reason.
Behind the scenes look.
Dawson comes in at No. 25.
