Hondo,

At 20-3, anyone who isn’t as excited about this team is a fool.

Cliff

Don’t let last nights final score be your guide. This team’s record is better than they are.

Glenn

Â
Hondo

I am not excited about this team at all. Where is the fire? Where is the excitement? Where is the fall on the floor will of last year? I think these three freshmen are good, so this isn’t a reflection on them: give me back last year’s team.

Curtis

Hondo

I don’t have any idea what has happened to Izzo. Has he lost the fire? Sure I see him yell and scream, but after a week of practice his teams are never that lethargic.

Brad

Â
Hondo

I can’t believe how many ignorant people are Spartan fans. WE ARE 20-3 IDIOTS.

Perry

Â
Hondo

Last year you praised Izzo for his coaching job. It was his best by far. He did so much with so little. This year, maybe they just have way too much? I love Izzo, but this season is boring.

Grant

Â
Hondo

I distinctly remember Izzo telling you last year, that this team would run from the time they got off the bus until they left the arena. He also said that they would substitute like a hockey team. I guess he forgot?

Phil

Â
Hondo

Are we not supposed to be a running team? What happened to running the ball?

Hank

Â
Hondo

The Spartans have a lot of great kids on this team. Anyone notice that there isn’t a tough guy on this team? No enforcer?

Will

Â
Hondo

Last years team would beat this one. If you consider that all the amazing young talent we added this year we are missing one thing from last year.  Tone Smith! His toughness even as a supposed video guy is lacking this year. Look at it close. I love these kids and Tom, but clearly this isn’t MSU basketball.

Ray

Hondo

20-3 and 10th in the country, there is nothing to [COMPLAIN] about.

Mike

Â
Hondo

I have the Big Ten network so guess what? I can’t tell you what I think about this team.

Shaw

Â
Hondo

Thanks to the Big Ten Network I have hardly gotten to see a game. By the sounds of things I haven’t missed much.

Curt

Â
Hondo

No way this team wins a Big Ten title or a final four. Very disappointing.

Mary

Â
Hondo

I go to all the home games and I can tell you from my seats that this team looks discombobulated. They all may get along and be friends, but they certainly are not coming together as a team. If you watch they seem to just not be on the same page. Last year, they were a team. This year they are still great kids, but just a bunch of good players.

Sarah

Â
Hondo

I feel terrible for Drew and Drew. Sadly they are the ones that suffer more than the rest of us.

Martin

Â
Hondo

I have a friend that works VERY close to the Spartan basketball program. He told me Izzo hates the Big 10 Network and that people need to keep complaining. I hate it and if the people in MSU athletics are angry about it, they should blame Simon.

Julie

Â
Hondo

Marquise is a great kid, but we are going nowhere without him stepping up. All of that talent should be doing more.

Jeremy

Hondo

I sat in the stands last night at halftime and told my wife that they would come back and win big. The sad thing is that taking teams lightly killed them against Iowa and PSU. This team is toast in the tournament when you can’t take anyone for granted.

Lyle

Â
Hondo

I go to MSU sporting events for entertainment and to see friends and clients. I think that all of the complaining is ridiculous. People need to get lives and stop acting like their life revolves around the athletic success that a group of kids has or doesn’t have.

Stacey

Â
Hondo

Izzo needs to go back to playing the guys that played last year until the freshman can adjust.

John

Â
Hondo

With all the talk about the rookies, maybe someone should look at the vets who have not played the same since they got here. Maybe that they shouldn’t be looking over their shoulder and just step up and play. I think Tom should start D Nice, Raymar and the three rookies.

Stephen

Â
There you go everyone. These are a few of your thoughts. This team did surprisingly come out slow and listless for a team that had a week off, but they are 20-3 and the sky isn’t falling. If you email didn’t get posted I am sorry, please try next time.
