We won't have Bo Ryan to kick around any more

Tom Izzo's #RealRival will retire following next season

Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

This annoucement brings to mind this cartoon:


Fortunately, MSU plays Wisconsin both home and away next season, so we'll get to unleash a full dose of HATE on Ryan before he departs.

Unfortunately, this means Tom Izzo won't be able to catch up in their all-time series, which Ryan currently leads 16-12 (one more reason not to think about this past season's Big Ten Championship Game).

This is the part where I'd say something classy about the quality of his career if it were anyone but him. Still, after all these years of sucking the blood out of the game of basketball, he definitely deserves to spend more time in his coffin.*
