Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose.
When the season began, MSU was ranked sixth and seventh in the two major polls. With Friday night’s win, they’ve proved beyond a doubt that those rankings were justified.
If this team loses tomorrow, they will have no reason to hang their heads. Rather, they will have a multitude of reasons to hold them high.
A win against the Cardinals, though, would take a stellar season and turn it into an elite one. Only one other Michigan State team has won an outright Big Ten regular season championship and reached a Final Four in the same season (the 1999 team).
In short, this game is all upside. So let is all hang out, boys.
