Massacre in Motown!

Of course it wasn't unexpected - we should all be use to seeing those kind of blowouts at Ford Field.

Nice job North Carolina - you made State look like a high school team! Congratulations!:)

Congrats NC, but one thing is true. You lived up to your potential, MSU went beyond. They slew two other giants and made every attempt to slay a third. They can hold their heads high as they represented the Big 10 well. Nice season MSU.

Amen to that. It's always great when you have the refs in your back pocket.

Typical fan of the Big Ten, get blown out in the first five minutes, get out played in every aspect of the game, get manhandled by a superior team and then some idiot fan states the refs, had something to do with it. With that attitude, no wonder the state of Michigan is in as bad of condition as it is. Congradts to the Tar Heels who went into Michigan, in front of the HIV kid and beat the Spartans like a Red Headed Step Child.

By the way, in the immortal words of Magic Johnson, The Tar Heels have Acquired a Win.

Congrats to NC. They earned their win.

I am still an MSU fan and MSU played well! After all someone has to get second place which isn't that bad at all- They were in the final 4 playoffs!

Where do these jerk athletes from NC come off staying in school for all four years... they all should have been in the pros. Great season Sparties!!!!!!!! I predict number one in the preseason polls next year, with 7 of our 11 man rotation coming back. I knew we were in trouble last night when listening to the pregame- "Huge" said we looked exhausted form the hype of the previous ten days.

To all of the haters out there, that's fine have your fun. I am still proud of Izzo and this team and Michigan State University. If they had to go down, at least it was to a great program like that of North Carolina. Nearly every member of this team will be back next year, not to mention some great recruits. Last night they were outplayed by a seasoned team that was more confident and hungry after having their asseshanded to them in last year's semifinal. Rip on State all you want, but no team has a better tourney record over the last 12 years and they have done it with class and with pride. Thank you Tom Izzo for what you do for my Alma Mater and for what you do for those student athletes. Go Green! Go White! Congratulations Tar Heels, you deserved this one!

I am so proud of the kids from MSU! They had a fantastic year and played their hearts out. 2nd out of how many teams, plus a great regular season. Nothing to be ashamed of! Izzo himself said the Tar Heels were the best team in the country. GO MSU! You made us Spartans proud.

And I really think that is what it boiled down to; The Spartans buckled at the knees; It definitely could have been better

Well said Spartanman. MSU did a great job and knocked down 2 #1 seeded teams to get to the final. The game could have been a little more enjoyable to watch on TV if announcer Clark Kellog had not been so obviously biased toward N Carolina. Maybe next year.

Exactly WHAT game did Michigan play in last night? Michigan STATE played in the NCAA Final. I wasn't aware that the Wolverines were scheduled to play.

Congratulations to North Carolina AND MSU. Unfortunately, the Spartans were beaten last night by the superior team.
