Each year, Tom Izzo vows to tone down on the preseason traveling for his basketball team. But now with each passing year I'm starting to believe him less and less, with good reason.
This morning reports surfaced that Michigan State will play UConn on November 9th at Ramstein Air Force Base in West Germany.
This means that a year after playing North Carolina on the USS Carl Vinson in San Diego and Duke in New York City four days apart, they'll do the same thing this year - with their Champions Classic game versus Kansas in Atlanta four day later.
Wow. That's about all you can say.
WHERE TO NEXT?
We all know that it's been in the works for the Spartans to play the Trojans (USC) in Greece. But I wonder how long that may take to get done with the economy and unrest in that country.
So where else would you want to see MSU play? Australia? China? Antarctica? THE MOON?!?!?!?
Or maybe some popular venues? Could they play under the Eiffel Tower? How about near the Pyramids. Or, could they play a game on the Golden Gate Bridge?
I wouldn't put anything past Mark Hollis and Tom Izzo at this [..]
