Thanks for your comment, UofMJBfan. I agree with your handle and will always support UM and JB! Tom Izzo is a great basketball coach, with flaws. He is a tremendous motivator of his players, but he doesn’t motivate in ways that I would, personally, condone. I have had the privilege, experience, of attending a Tom Izzo practice. That experience taught me that his demeanor is every bit as WILD as we Michigan fans think. It was a memorable experience. I have also had the opportunity to see him at Michigan State’s golf course a couple of times where he was personable, funny, and quite gracious. I think it’s great for kids to be taught and coached to be physical, to be tough, but when a kid just knocks another player out of bounds, really nowhere near the play, for no other reason than his coach wants him to be tough, to get physical, to intimidate, well, that’s not basketball, not the way I want it played. And Miles Bridges is a great BASKETBALL player. So I was a little upset with Izzo. For my wife’s sake I was actually cheering for the Spartans. OK, I was pretending to cheer for the Spartans, but when that happened, in addition to yelling at Izzo, I yelled out, “Just play basketball! You are better than Penn State! You don’t need to do that stuff! Just PLAY BASKETBALL!” Of course, they did, and what I told my wife would happen, actually happened. Well, it almost did. I said at half time, and even well into the second half, they’d win by 12-15. They won by eight. The Spartans are really good. I think Purdue is better. But I LOVE Michigan, and I’m a big JB fan!
