Congratulations to Coach Izzo and the basketball Spartans. After coming off a spectacular 2020 "virtual" NCAA Basketball Championship (don't believe me? Detroit News has the proof), they're set for another run deep into the NCAA Tourney next year. They haven't been within six feet of one another yet and they're already ranked #5 in the "OMG - Are We Seriously Ranking College Hoops Teams Already?" Poll (possibly not it's real name)

According to Spartans Wire, someone at NBC Sports (who, at this point, would air your 1995 WWF Thumb Wrestling Championship you recorded on your dad's VHS -Camcorder), has Michigan State ranked #5 going into the 2020-2021 season. Behind Villanova, Gonzaga, Baylor, and Virginia.

Of course, we don't have a schedule for the Spartans' season yet and we don't know who will be staying on the team or going into the NBA draft in June, but - for now - we good.

Here's the story.
