Travis Walton has an interesting take on the March phenomenon that is MSU's NCAA game prep routine.
I assumed Joanne P. McCallie cursed the NCAA selection committee after it put her Duke team in East Lansing, but I wonder what she's doing now. Great night for Suzy Merchant and the MSU women's team (advancing is the most important thing, regardless of how many MSU administrators are dancing on enlarged McCallie head shots-turned-dart boards), and a bad, bad night for McCallie.
Can your mind handle all that in the middle of the NCAA Tournament? Mine can't. But here are some updates:
Not only did Travis Walton have one of those days that make guys like Tim Floyd -- who had a great defensive plan -- lose hair, he made a key coaching decision late in the game.
The second round of the NCAA Tournament might just be the best, and I have a feeling this Michigan State-USC game is going to force the ESPN highlight editing people to make some tough decisions.
One of the people Tom Izzo called when he was mulling an offer from the Atlanta Hawks in 2000 was Tim Floyd -- then a former college coach who bolted for the rebuilding Bulls. Also, a guy who had never met Izzo.
The Colonials wanted to run. The Spartans wanted to run. And usually that works out well for Michigan State -- especially if it can own the backboards like this.
