Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
What's with you guys and fighting?
I'm hearing that it's Dawson and Payne. It's just a rumor though.
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Didn't Cleaves choke out Mo Pete before winning the Title in 2000?
We just a bunch of thug$
Tom Izzo said scuffle was between Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson.
Neither will start tonight
What does needling mean?
@ESPNAndyKatz: Izzo said Payne/Dawson were needling each other, resulted in a dented wall. Players will pay damage. The off-campus roommates won't start.
@BrandonWood30: I knew it was them two lmao

Little used captain Russell Byrd took advantage of a lapse in judgment by his teammates to shine in Michigan State's 72-57 win over the Penn State. The junior from Ft. Wayne, IN, relegated to mop-up duty most of the season, was given a starting nod after the Spartans' Brandon Dawson and Adrien Payne were benched by Izzo following an altercation earlier today. Byrd hit his first 4 3-point attempts, all within the first 6 minutes of game-play, and finished with a career high 20 points on 6-8 shooting. The junior added 7 rebounds and 2 assists.
A little early to be drunk, isn't it?
Did Payne have a Purdue jersey on? ;)
Never too early for Kool-aid . . .
uh.. um.. i have no words
Notre Dameo learned first of the death of his grandmother, Annette Santiago, and then of the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua.
That is effed up. Wow.
I just finished reading this. There has to be some sort of confusion, like Deadspin has her name spelled wrong or something, righy? Tell me Te'o and ND didn't just make the whole thing up for PR purposes.

Mel Kiper talking about Te'o and his draft stock right now.. how fitting
It sounds like Te'o and his friend more than ND.
The comment about her name, "That's because she was registered under her real name, Lennay Marie Wochinski. Lennay Marie Kekua was her professional name.", is a Seinfeld reference, FWIW.
Well, ND is sure helping them cover their tracks then:
Notre Dame Statement: Manti Te’o
On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia. The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators.

ND is covering up. Too bad his dad is quoted as saying that the two have met and used to meet in Hawaii.
Also, this. BrianMFloyd: Manti Te'o was asked about his girlfriend on Jan. 3 at a media availability: http://t.co/ElLEcOak

Anyone catch the Izzo interview on BTN? I missed it. Was hoping for some more details of this "scuffle" (if it was serious or not, if the two are over it, etc.)
It's about time. This team, like our football team, has no giddy up. Zero spunk, they need some fire. Who hasn't got in a fight with a teammate? Jesus at two a days how many would break out in afternoon sessions? Now take that to the court.
I don't mind it (as long as it was a Hey- play with more emotion scuffle vs. hey- I slept with your GF scuffle)
Cleaves choked out Mo Pete during halftime of the elite 8 game in 2000 because he was playing scared..
