Early Season Perspective

Michigan State just lost their 3rd game.  The general reaction - They've tough schedule, but they are talented and get it together.  Even with 2 losses they were a Top 10 team, so they'll probably be ranked in the teens even after dropping their 3rd.

Gonzaga lost their 3rd game on Saturday.  The general reaction - THE SKY IS FALLING!  THIS TEAM IS HORRIBLE, AND THIS IS THE YEAR IT ALL FALLS APART FOR THEM.  After 2 losses they were ranked in one poll, and now it's a joke that they're even receiving votes.

What's the difference so far between the two teams losses?  Well, Michigan State has lost to slightly better teams and weren't blown out in 2 of their losses, only 1.  Really in the big scope of things there's not a massive difference.

You know how many bad losses we have so far?  Zero.  We weren't even the favorites in 2 of the 3 losses.

 

Things to remember:

There's still no team as talented as the Zags in the WCC.

The WCC seems worse than usual.

Elias Harris was a non-factor until the first half of the Illinois game.  He can only get better from here.

The rotation right now includes 4 guys who are in their first year playing with the Zags.  They'll grow.

 

Just saying.
