09:12 AM ET 12.22 | Tom Izzo, fresh off a suspension he'd prefer not to address, claims to have mellowed, but he doesn't care for it. "If there's anything I've done over the years it's that I've mellowed to a point where I don't like myself," he said. "I like myself a lot better when I'm ticked off. Now I like myself a lot. Read between the lines on that." Izzo was answering a question about how he almost relishes the chaos of controversy and criticism that sometimes follows his program. It's something that he says he loves, calling things "boring" if there isn't something controversial going on around his team.

I like myself better when I'm drunk! Come to think of it, I like most people better when I'm drunk.
