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.
