Mods please get rid of this guy. He can troll all he wants in the Sparty/Michigan thread on tBB
Perhaps you should ask Duke insiders why they think Michigan is the bigger competition instead of State.

Just like MSU fans think they are on the inside track to get Tyus Jones and Jahil Okafor
Xxmgo is 100% correct. Cope is here to troll. He's been banned multiple times already and keeps coming back under new names (sad when you stop and think about it).
Don't ban Dope on my account. But please, the idea he's not here to troll is silly. It's exactly why he's here. It's what he does 24/7 on tBB and why he has been banned from this board and tBB multiple times. He is the definition of troll and is merely trying to skirt the rules just enough not to get banned.

He says all that after posting an article by SI published in 2009
Many Sparty fans were incredibly arrogant about getting Jabari Parker whereas most Duke fans were cautiously optimistic.
And Izzo is gonna be left with nothing - again - if Coach K wins the Jones/Okafor package deal.
Lastly, here's some sobering stats for Sparty fans:
Coach K is 6-1 versus Tom Izzo.
12/2/1998: Won 73-67 (in Chicago, IL)
3/27/1999: Won 68-62 (in St. Petersburg, FL) Final Four
12/3/2003: Won 72-50 (in East Lansing, MI)
11/30/2004: Won 81-74 (in Durham, NC)
3/25/2005: Lost 78-68 (in Austin, TX) Sweet 16
12/1/2010: Won 84-79 (in Durham, NC)
11/15/2011: Won 74-69 (in New York, NY)
But then there's this:
Under Coach K, Duke is also 6-1 in previous NCAA Tournament games played in Indianapolis.
1987: Duke (5) defeated Texas A&M (12) in round of 64 and then defeated Xavier (13) in round of 32.
1991: Duke (2) defeated undefeated UNLV (1) in Final Four and then defeated Kansas (3) in National Championship game.
1996: Duke (8) lost to Eastern Michigan (9) in Round of 64.
2010: Duke (1) defeated West Virginia (2) in the Final Four and then defeated Butler (5) in National Championship game.
In short, history is on Duke's side. State is essentially up against a Duke team that likely would've been a #1 seed if not for a mid-season injury to Ryan Kelly.
I am the only Woody on this board. Who does this guy think he is
Why all the Spartoon garbage?
Stealing Sparty's recruits and owning them on the field since 1898
Mitch is gonna be really really good. Tim and Glenn both need to come back
And BOOM goes the dynamite.
Coach K now improves to 8-1 against Izzo and 8-1 in NCAAT games at Indianapolis.
Coach K PWNS Sparty.
You gotta think that game last night helped with our basketball recruits interest!hope they were watching, you would think they were and if they werent they sure will see it and hear about it!!
With Michigan's beat down of Florida and Booker's other top schools MSU and Duke getting beat down as well, do we move up his list?
yeah where is all the basketball recruiting talk...there has to be something going on while Michigan is making this amazing run
I think we get him. What guard wouldn't want to play in Beilen's system and look at what Beilen has produced Manny Harris, Darius Morris, Trey Burke, Tim Hardaway JR. Each incoming guard gets better.
It will come down to Duke and Michigan.
This is Michigan, fergodsakes.
I have a good feeling about Booker.
wanna add Booker, Davis and Kennard in the next two classes as our shooting guards. Would be unreal.
Same, I'm fairly confident that he'll end up at Michigan. But Duke is up there.
Agreed. Feel good on Booker.

I felt good about Booker. Weren't we on him super early? this success in the tourney can only help i would think.
