Mon, 20 Feb 2017 14:35:00 ESTI can't say it is the most pleasant day, but I can't say it's the end of the world either. I think we all know about Eron's injury, Matt released it. You know as much as I do. It is going to be something that they are probably going to do surgery in three to four weeks. The swelling goes down and then they'll be able to give a much better indication and exactly what it is. But, it is a significant knee injury. If you got a chance to see it on TV, it buckled pretty good. And yet, I am so proud of this kid for how he has handled it. Yesterday, he gave a passionate speech to our players on what they should do. And I thought it was amazing. We have two weeks left of the regular season and a ton to play for. After we talk here for a second about Eron, 100 percent of what we do is going to be on Nebraska, especially since they have beaten us two times in a row here.

Wed, 15 Feb 2017 15:15:00 ESTSpartan victories aren't always pretty, but Coach Izzo says his squad is starting to find its identity as a grinder team.
Wed, 15 Feb 2017 01:09:00 ESTWith Tuesday night’s eight-point victory, 14 of the last 17 games in the series history between MSU and OSU have been decided by 10 points or less.
Wed, 15 Feb 2017 00:50:00 ESTWell, I just have to accept that we are a grinder team. Every time we have a big lead, nine points, 12 points, we just find a way to make us uncomfortable. But give us credit, we grinded it out. So, I guess we aren’t going to be pretty, but pretty doesn’t get you any wins anyway. Before I go into anything, I have to tell you that I do a lot of work to try to somewhat control the Izzone. If there’s some things not being said, I email them and talk to them, and catch help both ways – if too much is being said, if not enough is being said. But, I have to be honest with you. I was kind of getting upset at the chants of (Dan) Dakich…until I got in the locker room. I asked, ‘What was that all about?’ And somebody read me his tweets. The social media. If I would have known that before the game, I would have embarrassed myself almost as much as he embarrassed himself and I would have led the chants. Because calling us whiners and that is kind of unprofessional. Classy broadcasters like George Blaha and everybody else wouldn’t have even thought to do something like that on TV. But, saying our students couldn’t get in there? And he’s doing games for Michigan when his son is there? That is a disappointment and that is ridiculous. I think it’s funny because I have no respect for him for that and I am going to publicly say that. You can tweet it, you can read it, you can do whatever you want with it. But Twitter got him in trouble and he earned it. I am surprised that ESPN would let someone say something like that, that works for them. That’s off my chest now, another one for Twitter…Danny owes our fans and our students an apology. I probably won’t get it. But you know, I always got along with Dan, but as you know, it seems like this year a lot of people have been mad at me. But, I would have loved to get in that Izzone and join those chants. If I was on Twitter…Thank God I’m not, thank God some of my friends are. So, that was the commercial today and now we will get back to the game.
