Been reading on Facebook from all the “professional” critics regarding MSU’s season and coaches. All kinds of people have suggested that it’s time for Izzo to step down, become the AD, or simply disappear. Well, I don’t agree.
Yes, the team took a mid season skid and never totally recovered. However, let’s take a look at some of the possible reasons. Number one, that’s when the Nassar debacle surfaced. Yes, the guy is evil and fully deserves the 200 years or so he’s been put away for. With all the blame that was tossed around, how could the kids not be affected? Some of these kids are 18-19 years old. Yes, they are kids. To say nothing of the fact that it wasn’t the coaches who missed something like 13 of the final 14 shots.
ESPN, of course, had to put their 2 cents worth in. Like, the more hysteria they can cause, the higher their ratings. They went on an MSU witch hunt, vendetta, blaming the football and basketball coaches for sexual abuse cover-ups. The fact that all of these things had been investigated by the Title 9 people is irrelevant. They got to make up their own facts.
What say we let the authorities sort this out and move on to next year. In the meantime, let’s root form Michigan and get a Big Ten national champion. Wouldn’t that give the ACC droolers something to gnaw on?

The team had just finished the last day of tryouts, and the roster sheets had been posted on the door. Jayden, who had played halfback as a freshman, did not see his name on the JV roster. Devastated, he sat alone on the bench in the dressing room, with his head buried between his knees. His mind flashed back to what his father had preached to him his whole life. “You can’t do that, you’re too puny. You can’t do that, you’re not smart enough. You Can’t do that!”
So, what should he do? Should he give up, or should he fight? With the help of a number of people—his teachers, his counselor, his coach, his soon-to-be best friend and his friend’s mother, Jayden developed his own life’s mantra—I Can, and I Will!
