. . . now THAT’S a Tuffy!
What’s to be done about hanging a banner?
Certainly, he [Tom Izzo] doesn’t want to show any disrespect to the Boilermakers, or fire them up, by dropping the banner before the game. And, such a ceremony might feel hollow if MSU loses to a motivated Purdue team, which is playing for the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten Tournament and the best seed possible in the NCAA Tournament.
However, seniors Travis Walton, Goran Suton, Marquise Gray and Idong Ibok will be playing their last game in Breslin and will scatter to the four winds after the season. They may not be able to make it back for a banner ceremony in November at Midnight Madness or before the season opener.
Mr. Grinczel’s plan to have a super-secret banner-raising ceremony after the game–but only if we win–is a pretty good one.
Two more things about Sunday:
- Wear white. (Mrs. SW picked up a very fashionable white block S sweatshirt this evening just for the occasion.) And get there by 11:45 for the Senior Day introductions.
- I just realized tonight that Sunday is also Jamil Wilson announcement day. Is the fact he’s waiting until 2:30 (Central Time) a good sign for us?
