Men's Basketball mlive.com —  Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo is trying to resist the urge to talk about injuries but confirmed Monday night that Keith Appling will at least miss this week's practice and games. "I'm not going to talk about it anymore," Izzo said Monday on his weekly radio show on the Spartan Sports Network. "It's nobody's fault -- it's not his, it's not mine. Let's blame the officials, what the hell? I think he's participated in over 400 straight practices until he got hurt. He had never missed a game (until Penn State). I'm not worried that he's not tough enough to play with some pain, but it's just the way it's all gone down. It's hard on him and hard on us."
