Izzo numbers vs. "The field" All 11 teams vs. Tom Izzo:
O.K., we all know Izzo numbers. We know what he's done. He's been here 17 years, this is his 18th. He's pretty much unmatched and a first ballot unanimous Hall of Fame coach. But since "the punch" and the Purdue idiots on this board, and Mr. Woodson on tBB board who claims we are not the "Premier" program in the big ten since Izzo has been here, I did a little Big Ten research on the NCAA tournament and the BTT championships.
I did something stupid. I put Izzo up against the whole field. Not individual teams in the big ten (that would be stupid he towers over every school with Wisconsin and OSU coming closest with half the amount of sweet 16's Izzo has had (10-5). So I decided to just say screw it, lets compare Izzo's numbers against all 11 teams in the big ten since he's been here. Jesus h. tap dancing mother of god. These are sick.
*Conference Championships: Izzo 7 The field 10 ( A losing record but damn, not bad)
*Big Ten Tourn. Champs Izzo 3 The field 10 ( some of you are saying 12 but Michigan and OSU vacated two Izzo still is tied with three for the lead)
*Sweet 16's: Izzo 10 The field 22 (OSU, Wis with five Ill with 4, Purdue with 3)
Elite 8's: Izzo 7 The field 5 (Jesus, the whole fricken field)
Final 4's: Izzo 6 The field 5 (that's sick)
Championship games Izzo 2 the Field 3
Championships Izzo 1 The field 0
MSU is the premier team in this league. It's not close. 17 years. Wow.
Overrated!!! Overrated!!!! 7-0 about 2 minutes into the game!
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
21-0 now. Steve, I thought Notre Dame was good.
this ND team went 3-0 against the big ten. the SEC is unreal.
Bama's special even for the SEC. They are like Miami and Nebraska in the 80s/90s and USC in the early 2000s. And Michigan over the next decade.

Yep. This is not very indicative of the SEC. Give Saban a full month to prepare, and he will give you the best team in the country. I believe that's been the case 4 years in a row.
First beat Texas for a title.
Then crushed MSU, and played better than the national champs.
Then crushed LSU.
Now is crushing ND.
laconophilia is everywhere...
I still believe that Texas wins if Colt Mccoy doesn't get hurt. The Alabama then was not as near as good as the Alabama now.
Think about this for a minute. Bama was up on Auburn something like 21-0 in 2010 and let Auburn come back and beat them (their only loss that year). If it hadn't been for that, this probably would be Bama's fourth NC in a row.
Oh, I definitely agree. That was only Saban's 2nd true recruiting class (his 3rd season as coach). Since then, the team has gotten consistently more and more talented. It's absurd, really.
They actually lost 3 games that year believe it or not
Michigan can't even win the b10, no way they top Alabama.
Hoke was a good coach to restore order at UofM but he's not going to win a Natty.
You're right. It will probably be like five or six NC'S. I just figured I would get that comment out of the way before someone else said it.
Alright, this has gone on long enough.
I will no longer be visiting this thread, and will only be posting in the rejuvenated 'old thread'.
I hope that others will join me in no longer posting in this thread.
ND is also probably the weakest team to ever play in a national championship game. They almost lost to Purdue, BYU, and Pitt.
Congrats on the complete domination tonight. It was hard to watch as a Michigan fan.
MSU played its best defensive game by far.. Bigs came up huge too
I'm sure UM will be pissed as hell for the Crisler game
Michigan always gets everyone's best shot. ;)
Bumping this gem..
He's talking to Wags...
