Loving March

The wild and wacky NCAA tournament continues and look who's left for the Big Ten.

Yes, the Michigan State Spartans and Tom Izzo play Tennessee Sunday for a chance for another trip to the Final Four.

Michigan State, down Kalin Lucas, beat Northern Iowa and afterward Izzo was asked why his teams always do well in the tournament. Late-night TV viewers heard the answer in classic Izzo style.

"I love March," the coach said. And March continues to love him and the Spartans. 

I had picked Ohio State to make the longest run. Now I expect Sparty in the Final Four. 

Aren't you enjoying this great tournament.
