Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo had an amazing quote Sunday after playing Purdue.

The Boilermakers stomped all over the Spartans 73-63, and apparently that pissed off the legendary MSU coach.

“I give Purdue a lot of credit. I give this place a lot of credit. My freshmen needed diapers today,” Izzo told the press after the loss to Purdue, according to Saturday Tradition.

I don’t know why, but I find this quote hilarious. Imagine being a young man and having your coach tell the entire country that you need a diaper.

It’s the most humiliating and emasculating thing I can think of. I would be so mad if I was a 19-year-old kid and my coach was out there telling the media that I need a diaper. (RELATED: Duke Basketball Star Zion Williamson Throws Down 360 Dunk Against Clemson)

Hilarious move from Izzo.

I have a solution for all the Spartans players that aren’t pleased with Izzo’s comments. Don’t go out and get smacked by Purdue.

If you don’t want to have your coach humiliate you, then don’t lose. It’s pretty damn simple.
