    We know it's coming. Not a single analyst thinks we even make the title game. Everyone seems to have jumped on the Michigan State bandwagon.

    I am perfectly fine with that. We certainly haven't needed the analysts love to get to this point and we sure don't need it to go further.

    I would prefer the disrespect. Being fluffed by the media serves no purpose if you end up winning it all anyways.

    MSU is a trendy pick. People feel they have all their working pieces back at the right time. Kinda like when ppl were hopping on our bandwagon as we started to get injured/suspended players back. That UF/MSU game should it happen will be epic.

    They are very good and that game would be an insane game. But ill take Florida over Michigan state. They are prisoner of the moment. Michigan state is not as deep, and not as balanced in terms of both sides of the ball. I heard two guys claim they are great defense.....but I've seen them all year...really not that great and we can turn them over a ton.

    UNC kicked the crap out of MSu when they were completely healthy and Kentucky should have beat them when Kentucky was green. So yes I am glad they are picking MSu

    They stirred up controversy that's all. It's all for the ratings. If I were ESPN though, I'd have a range of teams to keep it interesting. If MSU loses early, they have nothing left.

    Think digger said Izzo experience factor. I guess 2 national titles and 3 elite 8's in the past 8 years isn't enough experience for Billy or this team.

    I think all these analyst convinced themselves of the myth they told themselves early in the season that "Michigan State is the best team in the nation when healthy".

    Understand, any irritation I might express about ESPN's coverage, or lack thereof, arises purely from my fear of its impact on recruiting. It has nothing to do with me needing validation. ;)

    I don't care what they think, I want them to not give us a chance.
