Linking Laconically is fine

It's the Monday after the first weekend of the NCAA tournament, and MSU's basketball season is still ongoing. But it's time to start making room for a little football in your life again.

Fresh off leading MSU to its sixth Sweet 16 in the last seven years, Tom Izzo landed his third commitment for next year. It's been a nice few days for the Green and White, but it's time to look ahead to next weekend. The Spartans will be fighting for the last spot in the Elite Eight an Friday, as their game against Virginia won't tip until about 10 pm. That leaves a long time to wait, so we should all be plenty knowledgeable on the Cavaliers by the time the game rolls around.
