Izzo suspended by NCAA

A little bit about hoops. Tom Izzo getting a suspension from the NCAA for a secondary violation? Yes, Coach Izzo should have been more adroit when it comes to what he's trying to do to entice players to the MSU program. Is he being used as an example? Yes, he is.

So, let's not make more out of it than what it is. He violated the rules and is paying his pennance. But, not coaching vs Prairie View A&M isn't a tough sentence. Rather, it DOES speak volumes of the problems of recruiting and too much emphasis and resources being placed on going after kids in AAU (or other third party) summer camps. It's really ridiculous, let's be honest.

No big foul here, though. Next up: Texas, Dec. 22.

Don't lose any sleep over it. The ES won't.
