Tom Izzo has said that football is No. 1 at MSU. Think about that.
This is one of the three or four greatest coaches in college basketball today (no argument from anyone, I assume), and he still loves the football team and understands its importance.
I want Coach Izzo with the team next Saturday in Iowa. Here's why: We are ONE MSU.
We are not football, basketball, women's volleyball or hockey as separate components. We are ONE MSU.
And I want Coach Izzo with Coach D in the halftime locker room to reflect that.
Magic, Coach Perles and Lorenzo White are invited, too. In fact, let's get them all to Iowa, all Spartan legends, and just those who played tough for us. Scott Skiles, we would like to see you there, too.
