Another great coach

Another great coach who gets very little respect outside of the Great Lakes area is Tom Izzo of Michigan State. His team beat Pittsburgh yesterday in Denver 65-54 to advance to the Sweet 16. I was very high on Pittsburgh to advance to the Final 4 figuring that they were due, but Michigan State out-toughed them.

You always hear Dick Vitale, Doug Gottlieb and Seth Davis talking up Mike Krzyzewski, Roy Williams and Jim Calhoun. Rarely do I hear how good Izzo is.

I think that he is a no-frills guy, he's not a self-promote like the egotistical John Calipari of Memphis.

I fully expect Michigan State to beat Memphis next round and possibly advance to San Antonio.
