That George Mason team beat UConn that year who was the number one overall seed, they were legit. Every single time Izzo has had one of the better teams in the country he has at least made the Final Four.
I'd love to hear all these times he's choked.
I'm an MSU fan and this simply isn't true. Last year we were a 1 seed and lost in the sweet 16.
It's not that clear cut. Against top 15 teams Michigan State is 2-7 while Wisconsin is 5-5 with 1 game remaining. RPI is rarely used anymore. All the time you see teams with higher RPI's go to the tournament over teams with more favorable RPI's. Any time you use a formula, you have to take it with a grain of salt. The eye test is much more effective, especially when you can look at records against common opponents within conference and between ranked teams.
I'm a fan of a team that sucks at basketball and I know what you posted is BS. RPI is used much more than AP Top 25
I read an article the other day that Ohio State players were really insulted we beat them at the Kohl Center. The article was over the top. They were mad that our players with joking around with each other and that the fans were cheering? It was a weird, article, almost made me think the Buckeyes are a little soft. Could just be using it as motivation though. Do you want the link to the article?
Lol. Whatever bro, drink another car bomb.
Haha. Just saw another one of this kpm 's threads. He's either a fanboy or a troll, my bad guys, carry on.
You were a 1 seed, but you weren't one of the top 5 teams last year and that is one time. How about all the other years you made the Final Four? You can't say Izzo chokes when he delivers a majority of the time.
......... A 1 seed is a top four team dude. Kind of how that works. And a lot of the years we made the FF our teams were good not great (sort of like this year....)
He is not a choker though. Some of our most talented teams have underperformed.
Seeding doesn't necessarily mean you are a top four team. Do you really think Gonzaga is the second best team in the country this year because they will be the #2 overall seed?
No more than I thought ND was the number one team in the country at the end if the season in football, but that is how these things work.
I understand that, but I think you need to evaluate the team based off of more than their seed. If Gonzaga makes an Elite 8 this year I'd say it was a great season for them and I wouldn't say Mark Few choked by not getting them to the Final Four because they were a one seed.
No flopping Brust...
UMs SOS is in the 60s
But I forgive you as a fan of the SEC
why do you guys feed someone from a football school? Oh I forgot hes a Dookie...and Cowboys, and a Bama..fan.... prolly likes the Yankees/Braves and Chicago BlackHawks too.
UM isn't going very far regardless of the seed they get so don't worry about them.
We swept Wisconsin. You guys are not jumping us end of story.
Who said jumping you? I said we both deserve to be 3 seeds. You swept us, but against Indiana, Michigan, Ohio State here are the records:
Wisconsin 5-1 (1 in progress)
I worked with a dude that was duke for bball, lsu for cfb, lakers nba and colts. I don't even accept trash talk from a dude like that.
Sorry you are not taking our spot. Congrats on a great b10 tournament and good luck with your 4 seed. You guys had your chance b
One of my best friends, IS Duke, Miami Hurricanes, Yankees, Lakers and Green Bay.... hes not even shy
