Nice of the Big Ten to have our home game against Michigan with no students
Not clear on the verbiage - Are you saying Michigan plays away nine times during those opponents' student vacations?

I think he is just saying that MSU hosts M while the students are on break.

Ah, a dyslexic moment for me. I thought you wrote "Nine of the Big Ten ..." instead of "Nice of  the Big Ten."

Nine is definitely more confusing than nice.

I doubt, unfortunately, that this kid ever gets on the floor.  There's a reason he went from five-star recruit to project.  Sadly, his legs aren't built to last...

7'2" kids built like that rarely are.

Doubt he was going to be a huge factor this year anyway, those 6'9" bigs Maryland added are the impact freshmen.  It's more a concern going forward if he was ever going to develop into anything.

MSU gets a commitment from 2020 big Mady Sissoko from Mali, by way of Utah.  Kansas and BYU were his other finalists.

Rare for Izzo to go outside the MI-OH-IN footprint to get a recruit, and this might be the most out there commitment they've ever gotten.  Apparently the chance to work in a program at MSU that allows him to volunteer during the summers in Mali helped.

Wisconsin added a three-star center last night, the No. 169 player in the 2020 class. 

Apparently about to add the No. 82 player in the class, a stretch 4 with Iowa State, Purdue, Xavier, Stanford offers. 

A bit of a surprise because the scholarships were sorta full, but not mad at it.

Purdue was in on Carlson, and I think many thought it was down to Purdue vs Stanford, as he wants to be an engineer. Seen a lot of players who talk about how highly the value academics then go to a decidedly non-academic school. As Wisconsin is a fine academic institution, I'm sad to see him not choose Purdue, but feel like it was a solid choice for him.

Yeah. All the "experts" had him going to Xavier lately, which made no sense at all, given his academic values. They don't even have an engineering program there, and they don't offer any doctorate.
