JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
Michigan State head men’s basketball coach Tom Izzo reportedly slept among 1,000 tents and 3,000 “Izzone” members. These kinds of stories are why recruits think so much of Izzo.
Sometimes college coaches start to believe their own hype and forget that, at the end of the day, they’ve still got to, at some point, sit in the den of a big time recruit and be vulnerable.
Can’t be larger than life. That doesn’t go over well.
The best coaches know how to just be one of the guys from time to time.
