Izzo rubs salt in Jets' wound

I’m guessing New York Jets fans are going to root against Michigan State next time the Spartans come to Madison Square Garden.

After Syracuse beat Michigan State, 72-58, on Tuesday, Spartans head coach Tom Izzo brought up a reference Jets fans are quickly trying to forget.

“I feel like the New York Jets,” Izzo said. “We were taking it like a sissy and they took it up like men.”

Surprisingly, Michigan State was dominated in the paint – an area the Spartans usually control on a yearly basis. Syracuse outrebounded them by eight and also had a 42-24 advantage with paints in the paint.

The Jets were drubbed by the New England Patriots on Monday, 45-3.
