Death, taxes, Tom Izzo hinting at Michigan State using a zone in the season. But this time, he means it. Or does he?

On Tuesday, Izzo took to a press conference to preview the preseason ahead for Michigan State. And once again, Izzo is reporting that the Spartans are working on a zone defense in practices.

According to Kyle Austin with MLive, Izzo hinted at the move and said he thinks “we’ll play some zone.” Izzo didn’t stop there, going on to say “what a surprise it’ll be” when the Spartans roll out the zone in a game.

We’ll see if the Spartans ever go to a zone consistently. For now, it sounds like another pre-planned troll job from Izzo.
