It happened again last night. This time it was at the hands of The Ohio State Buckeyes in Columbus. MSU was crushed 80-69. This is an ever occurring situation with this team.

As we speak, MSU is 19-11 overall and will probably make March Madness under the wire. They will host Maryland on Sunday afternoon in the Breslin Center. MSU has been very inconsistent all season long. Some players haven’t played to the ability that we are used to. I also think there is minimal leadership on this team and this team seems to be soft to a certain extent.

I cannot pinpoint one specific thing that is going on, but there is a problem with this team. I know that the fan base isn’t used to this inconsistent, shoddy play. Tom Izzo said that he thought this was his best defensive team he has had in a long time. But, as we see, this team is not a solid team all-around.

Maybe there is an underlying reason why this team is so flat, but I sure don’t know what to say anymore. I know this is just crushing Tom Izzo, but it’s a fact of reality. MSU will end their regular season on Sunday. I expect a win too! It will be the last game of the year at home before the Big Ten Tournament.

I guess we will have to wait and see how this year’s book will finish.
