Hot Takes and Men's Basketball vs Penn State
starts at 1:00
Whatever, SEGMENT ONE HOT TAKES. Shout out to Randy's daughter for getting into Michigan. We then talk about the Penn State game (sorry). Penn State starts hitting everything en route to a 33-6 run, offense can't hit anything for nine minutes. Dug McDaniel is not generating shots for everyone else, neither was Hunter Dickinson in this game. Just hold the ball above your head, you're taller than everyone else! They look like a bad SEC team this year.
[The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP]2. Men's Basketball vs Purdue
starts at 20:39
Michigan looks decent in this game and Hunter Dickinson is able to at least slow down Zach Edey. Needed a third scorer, really missed Jett. This team needs someone to step up. Rough day (and especially five minute stretch) for Isaiah Barnes. Purdue can't keep getting away with getting a center at 6'a million" tall. It's a conference full of 11-seeds besides Purdue. The football-basketball dichotomy: they both can't be good at the same time.3. Hockey vs Penn State
starts at 34:06
Michigan is in this weird place where they're 5th in the conference and 4th in the Pairwise. All things considered, this team has weathered a lot but they're in a good spot. Maybe the Saturday game was a turning point for this team? Officiating was terrible on Saturday, Yost may have been the maddest it's ever been - Brian reverted to his college days in terms of words said. What constitutes a five-minute major? Is there an elite team other than Minnesota? Michigan isn't quite elite right now but not many teams are better either. Could you go .500 in the Big Ten this year and still make the tournament? You could probably just go ahead and promote Naurato to full time head coach by now.4. Football Bits

Should Kirk Campbell still be referred to as "Soup"? Which soup do you think he most closely identifies with? Well anyways, Michigan has hired Kirk Campbell as the QBs coach. Apparently JJ really wanted this to happen. We don't know how good of a hire this is but Harbaugh does have a pretty good track record of making coaching hires.
