Who’d have thought Michigan State, No. 25 in our poll and 22nd in the actual poll, would be on the cusp of falling out of the rankings when it opened the season at No. 1 in our poll? Injuries certainly have played a part, but the Spartans who lost to the Illini on Saturday in East Lansing looked dysfunctional. Tom Izzo is a master of getting the best out of his teams in March, so it’s entirely too early to count the Spartans out, but that run of all four-year seniors under Izzo making a Final Four looks to be in some jeopardy.
