Every Four Years Isn’t Bad For Michigan State
By Cheval John
The majority of everyone’s bracket has been busted by now.
This year’s March Madness has been excited to some degree because of the fact that the only captivating thing is whether anyone can beat Kentucky.
Notre Dame came close when they went toe to toe with the Wildcats.
However, the Wildcats found a way to stay undefeated and make it back to the Final Four.
For anyone who had chosen Kentucky to win it all had a little scare from that matchup.
Now if anyone chosen Michigan State to make it to the Final Four this year were really smart.
The Spartans beat Louisville yesterday 76-70 in overtime.
The reason why they were smart is that Michigan State were destined to make it back.
Under head coach Tom Izzo, who is in his 20th year at Michigan State, they have made it to the Final Four every four years, which one of them led to the National Championship (2000).
Do not know why that is, but it is really impressive.
Maybe we should not have write them off of making it back after losing in the Big Ten Tournament final to Wisconsin, who are in the Final Four for the second straight year.
What we should have done is look at history and see the pattern of Michigan State’s final four appearances.
Whether they make the national championship game or not, you can’t take away the accomplishments that Michigan State has experienced under coach Izzo.
If Kentucky was not this dominant, Michigan State would have had a much better chance to win the national championship.
So if the pattern continues and coach Izzo is still at Michigan State, then I will say that they will make it back to the Final Four in 2019.
