I never questioned his toughnessI'd be worried about a lot of players. Not this one. Breaking his nose might adversely affect his modeling career, but not his basketball career. You might question a lot of things about his game, but toughness? Guts? Nope and Nope.
So just because he is fourth string just ignore the kofi hit then the Ayo massacre. I guess that'll do it!And I feel like a 4th string center is the lowest of low hanging fruit. It’s not like we are talking about suspending Garza. Not that I think Garza is a dirty player at all or has done anything remotely requiring suspension, just that we aren’t talking about a marquee player here.
Tom Izzo should be suspended from coaching the rest of the season big ten needs to send a message after all these are still just kidsI was wrong on what injury it was (I wasn't specifically told concussion I was told an injury would prevent him from playing in tonight's game). It sounds like a broken nose now.
Either way I think Tom Izzo has cemented himself as a jackoff.
WRONG AND MALICIOUSBoth plays were bad but let's not put this on the same level as Griffin last year. That was bush league plain and simple (and clearly malicious) and he went into Brad's permanent doghouse because of it. I'm sure we would all like to think Sissoko did that on purpose but I don't think so. I think he was playing like he was told to play which is very very very physical.
Keep in mind, he's a freshman that is still very raw. I find it hard to believe he meant to hurt Ayo but it's very clear he was told to be rough with us.
The league is asking for trouble. If there are not consequence from them on the play, consequences will be doled out on the court next time IL meets MSU. At that point there would be no standing to suspend an IL player. I'm betting the holdup right now is the league trying to get Izzo to accept a two game against Sissoko. Izzo has the cajones to put the guy in tonight against OSU - he has two fouls in less than 5 minutes of play. He will likely be back in the second half and we will see how he puts his "skills" to use.Not me. After tonight’s game, it wouldn’t surprise me if after an MSU BT tourney game the Illini have at least one suspended player.
My move would be 6'7" OL, Julian Pearl from Danville.Think we should add a linebacker, say Jake Hansen, to the roster if we play MSU again. Put him on Henry to start the game. Doesn't really have to do anything - but just to see Izzo's face.
Not trying to hear it.LOL at Izzo's half hearted "apology" to "A O" to start his postgame presser after the Ohio St game. Dude sold his soul to the devil or has incriminating photos of someone in the league, I swear. Two top 5 wins in 3 days with a TON of help from the zebras.....smh.
Did he seriously mispronounce it again??LOL at Izzo's half hearted "apology" to "A O" to start his postgame presser after the Ohio St game.
