Michigan State : true story

Bobby Knight, after living a full life, died. When he got to heaven, God was showing him around. They came to a modest little house with a faded Indiana University flag in the window. “This house is yours for eternity, Bob,” said God. “This is very special; not everyone gets a house up here.”

Bob felt special indeed, and walked up to his house. On his way up the porch, he noticed another house just around the corner. It was a three-story mansion with a bright Green and White sidewalk, a 50-foot tall flagpole flying an enormous Michigan State flag, and, in every window, a Spartan logo. In the front yard was a sign that said “Welcome to the Izzone.”

Bob looked at God and said, “God, I’m not trying to be ungrateful, but I have a question. I won three national championships, more Big Ten titles than I can remember, and I am the winningest coach in IU basketball history.”

God said, “So, what do you want to know, Bob?”

“Well, why does Tom Izzo get a better house than me?”

God chuckled and said, “Bob, that’s not Tom’s house……..it’s mine.”
