QUOTES FROM THE BIG TEN BASKETBALL MEDIA DAY HERE IN CHICAGO: TOM IZZO GAVE NEW UM COACH BEILEIN A TOUR OF THE MSU BASKETBALL FACILITIES!
Hondo S. Carpenter
UM Coach Beilein on MSU:
"MSU has never dropped off.Â They have had great continuity.Â I think they are a model of how to do it.Â I went up there and Coach Izzo showed me around and went up and saw the new locker rooms.Â Impressive."
For the record, I like Coach Beilein very much and I know that Tom does also.Â He is a very good person and he isn't a cheater.Â Tom told me earlier this summer that he wants this rivalry to get to the level of Duke/UNC and he think that Coach B can get it there.
