Alums Will Be Bleeding Final Four

From our friends at the The San Francisco Examiner:

March may be gone, but the madness of the NCAA basketball tournament continues, and the local alumni from the four schools still in the championship hunt will stream into San Francisco bars this weekend to watch the action.

Eager fans of North Carolina, Villanova, Michigan State and UConn all have plans to congregate together in San Francisco to root for their teams, despite being thousands of miles from their home campuses.

Watch Party, Championship Game

Awesome turnout on Saturday, Alumni! Thanks for coming out to cheer with us!

“Long I pondered my coach’s cryptic talk of victory, but time has proven him wise, for from student to graduate, the word was spread that bold Izzo and his hardened cagers, so close to home, played the game of their lives… not just for Spartans, but for all of Michigan and the promise this state holds. Now here on this ragged patch of earth called Ford Field, let UNC’s hordes face obliteration! Just there the barbarian Tarheels huddle, sheer terror gripping tight their hearts with icy fingers… knowing full well what merciless horrors the Big East suffered at the Dunks and Defense of 15 Spartans, yet they stare now across the stadium at 70,000 Spartans representing 10,000,000 pride-filled Michiganders. HA-OOH! This day we rescue a state from depression and hardship and usher in a future brighter than anything we can imagine. Give thanks, alumni, to Tom Izzo and the brave Spartan Team! To victory!”

Way to go Spartans! Championship Game!

We play the UNC Tarheels this Monday, April 6th, for the title. This is the final and most important game of the season, so join the other Bay Area Alumni to support them from afar!

Spartans Advance to the Championship!

Kalin Lucas could have been considered overly optimistic or just plain delusional when he said after a 35-point loss to North Carolina on Dec. 3 that Michigan State would look forward to “the rematch” at Ford Field.

Prophet might be a better term for him now.

Michigan State defeated Connecticut 82-73 tonight before a crowd of 72,456 at Ford Field, sending the Spartans to their first national championship game since 2000. The Spartans’ opponent will be Villanova or, as Lucas indirectly predicted months ago, North Carolina.
