At this point, I wouldn’t argue against you if you told me Tom Izzo is the best coach in college basketball. Sure, you have Cal and Coach K winning a lot of ball games, but they do it with teams that are loaded with NBA talent. Izzo, on the other hand, finds his way into the Final Four with guys who buy into his idea of team ball and just go to work on opposing teams (outside of Draymond Green, name me one stud Spartan drafted into the NBA since 2009).
Before the Spartans took on Louisville on Sunday, Izzo gave the team on hell of a pep talk. Here it is:
Now we know why you can never count out Sparty when Izzo is at the healm. Shit, how could you not want to go to battle after that? Tom really knows how to fire up a team. Two hours, that’s all he’s asking for. A simple, yet powerful message. The way he ends it just has you ready to take on the world.
This shit has me so pumped that I’m going to go challenge ol’ Dorn to Golden Tee at $500 a hole..
