    Well, I have to say I am so disappointed that my Spartans could not seal the deal against the Hoosiers. We had our chances but just could not put the ball in the bucket in the last minute. IU showed they are #1. Miami squeezes out yet another close win, showing some toughness in tight end of game situations.

    I still expect coach Izzo to have the Spartans ready for another deep tourney run.

    Every game from the very 1st to the Tournament counts. All. The committee looks at all stats. That's why UNC is a bubble team right now. Miami should have gone down by now in the ACC. Talking about lucky at times. Clemson had them @ home.

    I didn't say that you said they were meaningless either....

    You are right, there is no exact science to know for sure who is better than another....THANK GOD we have a tourney to determine the champ!

    I didn't say the Nov and Dec games are meaningless. I said they "don't mean as much to me as results in February". With the key words being "to me". The reason why I probably believe there is some merit to this is because every march when the bracket comes out, one of the key criteria you hear about is Won-Loss record in the last 10 games.

    As for Duke. I don't feel as confident about Duke now as compared to how confident I was when they were 15-0.

    There is no exact science to debating which team is better than another. It's all based on personal opinion until everyone plays the exact same schedule.

    To me, the whole argument that November and December games should not mean as much as January and February games is bogus. If that is the case, we should start the season in January.

    but you just told me November games do not matter to you....so 10-3 makes a 2 seed?

    I totally agree about Izzo teams in Novemeber being different than Izzo teams in February, but I am not going to discredit Miami's head-to-head win over the Spartans.

    When was that played? I hate to say it but wins in Nov and Dec don't mean as much to me as results in February.

    What about that thumping they put on Duke? Pretty impressive also.

    As much of a Duke homer as I am, I hate to say it but Duke without Ryan Kelly is no match for Miami.

    I am not trying to say that Miami should be ranked ahead of Michigan State, just saying it is not as cut and dry as you seem to make it.

    Point taken. Michigan State doesn't have a perfect conference record like Miami. I'm just saying when conference play starts, you have to take into account the stength of the conference when comparing teams from different conferences.

    I also take into account Izzo's history. It seems year after year, his teams start slow and off the radar then sometime in mid-Feb, they end up in the top ten and eventually a favorite to make the Final Four. This year's no different.

    Michigan has lost 3 of their last 5 games. Maybe they aren't quite as good as you think.

    Feb 2 @#3 IND L81-73
    Feb 9 @WIS L65-62 OT
    Feb 12 @#8 MSU L75-52

    That's what I'm saying. Miami plays in a weak conference. Michigan State (and Michigan) play at places like IU and Wisconsin and Michigan State.

    I love the ACC and all, but c'mon, the Big Ten is just a better conference.
