February 5, 2023: Michigan State looks to 'get right' on Tuesday night as it welcomes in the Maryland Terrapins for their only meeting this season. MSU is due for a little home cooking as it needs to get back on track from behind the arc in order to generate the offense it needs to win games. Defensively MSU has been generally solid of late but the…
 
MSU basketball gets rolling against Saturday against Rutgers with Part II at Madison Square Garden. How has Rutgers been since playing at Breslin, and what are some reasons MSU can win this game...and not win this game? We also check in on MSU football news and notes and head to the Senior Bowl where Jayden Reed and Bryce Baringer are shining ahead…
 
February 4, 2023: In a game where MSU's shooting was as cold from outside as it was outside in the snow, the Spartans lose to Rutgers 61-55 on just 19% shooting from behind the arc. Unlike the first meeting in East Lansing, MSU held their own on the boards and actually finished outrebounding the Scarlet Knights by 10. But it wasn't enough as costly…
 
February 2, 2023: It's another matchup with the Rutgers Scarlet Knights for Michigan State but this time its not at the Breslin Center, but Madison Square Gardens in New York. This is probably a bullet dodged by MSU to avoid playing at the RAC where Rutgers is extremely hard to beat. However, the Knights will once again be a tough matchup for the S…
 
Another Signing Day has come and gone with MSU inking one additional kid to its 2023 recruiting class in Philipp Darius. What is his game like, and was MSU right for going after a "diamond in the rough" player over using that slot for a spring transfer? We chat with Stephen Brooks of 247Sports about it and hand out awards for Instant Impact Recruit…
 
February 1, 2023: Michigan State finally has a few days to rest between games after their brutal January schedule so we thought it would be a good time to check back in with LSJ columnist, Graham Couch. We spoke to Graham about where he sees this MSU team at the turn (halfway through the Big Ten season) and the rest of the Big Ten. Will the Purdue …
 
We kick off the show with a quick update on the pursuit of 4-star offensive tackle Chimdy Onoh after a quick anecdote. Then Matt and Connor Muldowney of Spartan Shadows and Spartan Avenue banter about their thoughts on the basketball season before diving into a series of hypotheticals. What's on the table for these hypotheticals? Xavier Tillman joi…
 
We kick off today's show with a listener email that's wondering where all this MSU basketball optimism is coming from? From the lack of recent success to what's taking place on the court this season, we look at what's fact, fiction and open-ended regarding this team's chances at a March run. We then look ahead to Wednesday's Signing Day where MSU w…
 
MSU basketball went into Mackey Arena and it went the same way all the other games do. We look at what we didn't like from MSU in the loss, plus realizing that maybe Purdue is just a really good team. We also look at the bright side (if there are any) of the game and beyond, including a look at MSU's schedule the rest of the season. Which brings up…
 
January 29, 2023: Mackey Arena remains a house of horrors for the Spartans as they drop another game on the road to #1 Purdue. Michigan State will have to wait at least another year as they haven't won on Purdue's floor since the 2013-14 season. The lumbering 7'4" Zach Edey was once again too much for MSU as he had 38 points and was complemented by…
 
January 27, 2023: After losing a heartbreaker to Purdue in East Lansing two weeks ago, MSU has a chance for revenge. Aside from being in a different arena, this time the Spartans will have Mr. Versatility, Malik Hall. In the previous matchup, MSU chose to largely play Edey straight up and double hard off Morton. The strategy largely worked as they …
 
January 26, 2023: In a game where MSU didn't play smoothly offensively against a poor defensive team, they did just enough to squeak out a win over the Hawkeyes. In good news for the Spartans, Malik Hall returned back to the floor and looked like Malik Hall without a bit of rust. He played 25 effective minutes on both the offensive and defensive en…
 
WOOO BOY WHAT A GAME. MSU basketball escapes a hairy one against Iowa and avoids a bad loss and a potentially slippery slope for the upcoming schedule as well. We look at what went wrong for MSU before it all went right, as well as a self debate over who the MVP of tonight was between Malik Hall, Mady Sissoko and Jaden Akins. Then we are joined by …
 
MSU football hires its defensive line coach with Diron Reynolds who comes to East Lansing with 25 years of experience and a championship pedigree. We then chat with Trent Condon of Locked On Hawkeyes ahead of Thursday night's matchup between MSU and Iowa. What can we expect from this Iowa team including star players Kris Murray and Patrick McCaffer…
 
Friend of the program Graham Couch of the Lansing State Journal and the Couch and The Rube podcast drops by for a chat on all things MSU. We kick things off with discussing whether AJ Hoggard has "it" as MSU's lead man and go into whether this Spartan team can truly make a Final Four run. And what player would MSU benefit the most from having this …
 
January 24, 2023: Iowa is coming to town and bringing another fantastic Murray brother into the Breslin on Thursday evening. Fran McCaffrey once again has a team with a very good offensive efficiency rating. And... once again they are terrible on defense. Michigan State looks to defend their home court and return to winning ways before heading on t…
 
January 23, 2023: Rod and Eric introduced 2023 incoming freshman, Gehrig Normand, to the Spartan Nation in this interview. Normand is a 4* recruit, 6'6" shooting guard from the Dallas-Forth Worth, TX area who was the third commit for MSU this summer. Many describe his game as similar to former Spartan, Matt McQuaid, who was from the same area and h…
 
Jeremy Fears finally earns his composite 5-star rating as if we couldn't be excited enough about this 2023 commit. We are also joined by West Joliet basketball head coach Jeremy Kreiger to help us get to know more about Jeremy one and off the court in the midst of his big senior season. We then head to the mailbag to see if MSU can possibly add a p…
 
Michigan State basketball jumped to an early lead but it wasn't enough as another opposing big man shreds the Spartans. Also, how detrimental was benching AJ Hoggard with two fouls in the first half, and what else is MSU getting out of the team besides Hoggard, Tyson Walker and Joey Hauser? Friend of the program Sam Martin joins the show to talk al…
 
January 22, 2023: In a game that MSU controlled for the first 10 minutes, it looked like they might come away with a big road win at Indiana in Assembly Hall. Unfortunately for the Spartans, the Hoosiers caught fire from behind the arc and at the free throw line and were too much. Before the game, there was a lot of discussion for how Michigan Stat…
 
January 21, 2023: Now that MSU is back on the the winning track they head down to Bloomington, IN to take on the Indiana Hoosiers who are riding high after two straight wins including an impressive beat down at Illinois. The Hoosiers have been an up and down team this year and have suffered injuries to two starters in Xavier Johnson and Race Thomps…
 
January 19, 2023: Michigan State ended their 2 game losing streak with a decisive victory over Rutgers on a rainy night in East Lansing 70-57. On a night that might be viewed as a coming out party for Jaxon Kohler who finished with a double double and played the most minutes at the 5 spot, he contributed a lot to MSU's great defensive effort. Rutge…
 
Jaxon Kohler and the Big Three of AJ Hoggard, Tyson Walker and Joey Hauser all had career nights in an important MSU win over Rutgers. What were the storylines coming out of the game, and what does this mean moving forward for MSU? And we then get a pulse of the fanbase and ask how they are feeling in the midst of this stretch without Malik Hall. W…
 
With the transfer portal window closed and being in between signing periods, we take a look at MSU football's top returners and new faces that will impact the 2023 season. From the top-ranked recruit to a multi-Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week, we take a look at MSU's biggest offseason acquisitions. And then we are joined by Greg Patuto of On T…
 
We start the show with the latest quotes from Tom Izzo's regarding Malik Hall's foot injury and when we can expect him back. Also, some quick Big Ten officiating talk leftover from Monday's loss against Purdue. We then switch to a MSU football notebook of news with Eli Collins, longsnapper Mason Arnold, Sam Leavitt and 2024 prospect Davi Belfort. A…
 
January 17, 2023: MSU enters into the game on Thursday against Rutgers on a two game losing streak after dropping close games at Champaign and by one point at home to first place Purdue. Rutgers, however, isn't the usual slouch team that they were in their early days in the Big Ten. The Scarlet Knights are ranked #14 in KenPom and have one of the b…
 
January 16, 2023: Zach Edey and the number one offense in America, the Purdue Boilermakers, came to the East Lansing and took on a Michigan State team down one of its veterans due to Malik Hall's injury in the Illinois game. Despite being down a man, MSU almost pulled out the win against a talented Purdue team and even outplayed the Boilers in a nu…
 
Michigan State saw a career night from Tyson Walker, but it wasn't enough against No. 3 Purdue as the Boilermakers break hearts late. We talk with Carter Elliott of Spartans Illustrated joins the show to talk feelings, the strategy late in the game and how they handled Zach Edey. Also, what does Thursday's game against Rutgers mean now for both the…
 
Dave Klein of SpartanHoops.com joins the show after MSU's road defeat at Illinois to talk about his takeaways, Malik Hall, the big men and more. And after a brief chat about Big Ten officiating, we look ahead to MSU's big showdown against No. 3-ranked Purdue that will be taking place on Monday. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! LinkedIn Linked…
 
January 14, 2023: Michigan State's seven game win streak was snapped in Champaign on Friday night and the Spartans look to return to their winning ways against a top rated Purdue squad. Per usual, Purdue enters the game with a monster center, 7'4" Zach Edey who is a national player of the year candidate. Edey is a beast scoring in the paint, reboun…
 
January 13, 2023: In a game that Michigan State led for the majority of the first and second half, Illinois proved to be too much at home in a 75-66 win. Illinois uncharacteristicly took care of the basketball and finished the game with only 5 turnovers. They also shot free throws well above their average at 83%. In contrast, MSU failed to hit a si…
 
We kick off the show with an important listener question in the midst of MSU's win streak -- can this Spartan basketball team actually win the Big Ten? We take a look at their chances through the eye test, what Vegas has to say and what the computers think as well. We are then joined by Andrew Pastorek of the Illinois podcast "Oskee Talk" for two s…
 
MSU football got some good news this week with the return announcement from interior offensive linemen JD Duplain and Nick Samac. What does the offensive room look like now? And staying on football, what Spartans are there to watch this weekend in the NFL Playoffs? And after talking about Xavier Booker, Coen Carr, Jeremy Fears and Gehrig Normand be…
 
January 11, 2022: The Spartans will take their 7 game winning streak (four in Big Ten play) into Champaign to take on a hot Illinois team. Illinois has won their last two conference games dispatching Wisconsin at home and blasting Nebraska in Lincoln. Illinois features a test for MSU as they have size all over the court which is giving teams fits b…
 
January 10, 2023: In another Big Ten road test, MSU headed into Madison, Wisconsin to take on the Badgers and try and extend its winning streak to 7 games. In what can only be described as a poised effort, the Spartans were perfect from the floor down the stretch hitting their last 8 field goals and all their free throws to win the game. Wisconsin …
 
Michigan State gets a HUGE road win against Wisconsin thanks to late-game heroics from AJ Hoggard and Malik Hall. And, oh yeah, a SENSATIONAL game from Joey Hauser as well. We break it all down with former Spartan basketball player and birthday boy Anthony Ianni. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! LinkedIn LinkedIn jobs helps you find the candi…
 
It’s a mashup for the MSU vs. Wisconsin preview as Locked On Badgers host Ryan Harings joins the show to breakdown Tuesday night’s game! What are the biggest storylines heading in, and how should each fan base be feeling about their team up to this point? We also take a look at what will make the Badgers tough to beat and where the holes could be, …
 
January 8, 2023: Michigan State heads back onto the road and will try to continue its winning streak of six straight and two in Big Ten Play as they head to Madison to take on the Badgers. In an arena that has historically been a house of pain MSU will look to stay in first place in the Big Ten. Rod has stated it a number of times that MSU has a pr…
 
Michigan State basketball did it ugly, but it doesn't matter how you do it in a rivalry win. Who were the stars of the game for Michigan State, and what did they do to limit the damage of Michigan's star players? We also look at what Tom Izzo had to say about the game and take a peek at what Malik Hall's return to the team has meant. Also, what did…
 
January 7, 2023: In an ugly offensive game, MSU pulled out a win at the Breslin Center 59-53 over rival Michigan. Neither team could hit their shots as the Spartans launched at least 3 wide open air balls for 3. The only thing worse than MSU's outside shooting was Michigan's who shot 15% on 3-20. It was a game where MSU controlled by double digits …
 
Let's breakdown this MSU vs. UM basketball game before the weekend by taking a look at what Michigan has done so far this season. Who are their "big three" and how do our Spartans match up with them? Also, after five years at MSU, Elijah Collins enters the transfer portal. Should we be surprised at this, and what does MSU's running back room and ro…
 
January 5, 2022: Rivalry week is officially here now that MSU has dispatched Nebraska and awaits a matchup at home with cross state rival, Michigan. The Wolverines have struggled at times in the non-conference schedule but are in first place of the Big Ten with a 3-0 mark after defeating Penn State on Wednesday. Last year, the teams split their ser…
 
MSU basketball put together its best half of basketball in quite some time and rolled Nebraska on the Big Ten play restart. Who shined the brightest, and what other takeaways can we get from this game? And when is it time to start wondering if Steven Izzo will ever score in a regulation game in his career? Also, MSU football notes from Keon Coleman…
 
January 3, 2023: Michigan State welcomed in the new year with a decisive 74-56 victory over the visiting Nebraska Cornhuskers. In what is probably MSU's best complete game since the early season, they coasted out to a 22 point half time lead behind suffocating defense and a fantastic first half scoring effort from Tyson Walker (16 points). MSU had …
 
Nebrasketball is coming to town as MSU restarts Big Ten play with a spicy but slow Huskers team. What does Nebraska do well, and who are the players MSU needs to watch out for? And on the heels of TCU reaching the national title game after a 5-7 season, what does MSU need to have happen in order to duplicate that? And also, when was the turning poi…
 
Thanks to solid individual performances all around, MSU basketball cruised by Buffalo before the weekend. Who shined the brightest, and what kind of a month is ahead for Michigan State basketball? And then, we play a game of "MSU bowl game...or not a MSU bowl game?" with special guest Matt's sister. And then we banter about the College Football Pla…
 
January 1, 2023: As we enter a new year, Michigan State begins the Big Ten campaign in full with 18 games and a march to a potential championship. However, there are no easy wins in the Big Ten this year and protecting home court is a necessity after already losing their first to Northwestern. Fortunately, the Spartans will be full strength with a …
 
MSU football picked up some good news with linebacker Aaron Brule returning to the team for the 2023 season. And Buffalo vs. MSU basketball tips off to close out the year and we break it down with Buffalo facts...basketball and not. And then...TRIVIA! Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors! LinkedIn LinkedIn jobs helps you find the candidates you wa…
 
December 30, 2022: In what is the most significant development for anyone with hopes of MSU making some sort of run for a Big Ten title or NCAA tournament Final Four, the return of Malik Hall back on to the court was a big one. Now that Jaden Akins is almost back to where we hoped he would be starting the season, Hall played limited minutes but loo…
 
December 29, 2022: Michigan State has its last non-conference tune up before Big Ten play resumes with the new year as they welcome in the Buffalo Bulls from the MAC. Buffalo has had a recent history of success with multiple NCAA tournament wins under coaches Bobby Hurley and Nate Oats. However, this year is clearly a rebuilding year with them hold…
