Michigan State’s NCAA Tournament season is off to a great start as they crushed Miami 78-58 in a first round matchup Friday night in Tulsa. It didn’t start out easy for the Spartans though. The Hurricanes jumped out to a 10-0 lead from the opening tip, and held a 17-5 lead halfway through the first half. But Michigan State calmed down, and the final 30 minutes of the game was all Sparty, as MSU went on a 30-8 run to close the first half and kept rolling the rest of the way.
Let’s take a look at some tweets from when Michigan State was down early…
Miami obviously wiretapped Michigan State's practices.

Michigan State looks like a pickup team of guys that have never met each other. Awful to watch.

Miami appears to be better than Michigan State. Like, by a lot.

and the Bruce Brown slam gives @CanesHoops a 17-5 lead on Michigan State. The Hurricanes are amazing, but Sparty sucks, let's be honest.

At no point this season did I think Michigan State was a NCAA Tournament team. Still trying to tell myself they're actually in

Finally, here are some very rational, patient, and measured college basketball fans. The commentary about legendary Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo is especially amusing…
