This Season

14-1 (3-0). In a shocking twist that blew the minds of the sporting community...

...Michigan State is good (yet again)!

The Spartans are coming off a 3 point home win against Ohio State (kind of a big deal). Their lone loss was to a North Carolina team that I can't figure out, but UNC beat Kentucky and is no slouch so that's hardly a bad loss. If you're a KenPom guy, there's nothing to like there either. This team is near the top of the country in offensive and defensive (especially defensive) efficiency as well as offensive and defensive eFG%. They're in the top 75 in turnovers, which isn't nearly bad enough for me to think they'll go all FSU against Minnesota. Oh, and they shoot the 3 ball well. The only thing they suck at is getting points off free throws. Personally, I'd prefer they had a horrid defense.

THE #TAKES

1) ALL HAIL THE HONEYCRISP TROPHY!

It's so beautiful!

2) No one expects the Gophers to win this game. I mean, I'm not sure what everyone else has been watching but clearly the Gophers are due. (Totally true and utterly irrelevant).

3) If the Gophers win this one I run barefoot around my house in celebration. Seriously. I'm not kidding. It'll suck but the glow from the win will keep me warm. I'll make my wife take a photo and I will post it here on TDG. I'll even put my Zubaz shorts on first.
