Vacancy rates in downtown Detroit are at 70 percent
As a 63-year-old baby-boomer, here's my Bible verse for the week and beyond

Should Tom Izzo take the $30 million from Cleveland to leave MSU?

Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert reportedly is offering Izzo a five-year, $30 million contract to take the professional plunge. That kind of money sure sounds nice, but it won't guarantee happiness for a guy who has said several times in the past his NBA ship might have sailed.


Would Jud Heathcote have abandoned Michigan State University and its basketball program for $6 million per year and a chance to live in Cleveland?

The Detroit News' Eric Lacy says that's the amount offered to Tom Izzo who still hasn't made up his mind about going for the big bucks to coach a wanna-be NBA team.

It's time for Izzo to make a commitment and to show his loyalty.
