Izzo was furious with the referees for not calling a foul on Ohio State before halftime of the Spartans’ game against the Buckeyes. Keith Appling was dribbling down the sidelines and stepped out of bounds, but Izzo believed he was pushed out.
Even though Michigan State went into halftime leading 28-21, Izzo was ticked that the non-call cost his team a possession. He proceeded to go Gregg Popovich during his interview with ESPN’s Allison Williams.
Asked what had him so frustrated, Izzo barked “a lot!” in response.
He gave Williams the death stare too before finally calming down and answering two more questions.
Michigan State won the game 72-58. Imagine what Izzo’s interview would have been like had his team been losing at halftime.
