Men's Basketball vs Wisconsin
starts at 1:00
Not firmly in the tournament but firmly on the bubble. Brian talks through the various scenarios that would work to get into the tournament. Who else got flashbacks during the Wisconsin banked 3?? Dug McDaniel hasn't quite turned the corner yet (he has the worst shooting at the rim of anyone in college basketball) but he also had consecutive Kenpom MVP performances. Able to keep winning without Jett, thankfully. Still just feels like they're a player short of being a top 20 Kenpom team.
[The rest of the writeup and the player after THE JUMP]
2. Men's Basketball vs Rutgers
starts at 22:08
Brian did not watch this game live because he did not have power (and two children). Shout out to the Ann Arbor District Library. It's a lot more pleasant watching basketball when you know it's going to be ok! Rutgers goes 5 of 16 from the free throw line, 9 of 22 at the rim. The key to beating Rutgers is forcing them to take long twos. Michigan is tied for second in the Big Ten. Looking ahead at Illinois, the Illini have been kinda meh recently. Winning that game would still be a much needed Quad 1 win.3. Hot Takes and Hockey vs Notre Dame
starts at 36:22
Takes hotter than Crisler Arena after they show a clear foul on Tyler Wahl that's, the ball's out of bounds and you're just like "it's gonna be Charles Matthews again" and everybody's really mad and then they bank in a 3 and it's just [inarticulate yelling]. Not enough pressure is put on the zamboni drivers. Michigan only gets 2 points out of Notre Dame in this series. Notre Dame's goalie stole the whole weekend, shots in the 3rd period of the Saturday game were 27-6 in favor of Michigan! Penalties called have not been consistent with keeping players safe, it's more about avoiding bad press. Who's excited about Allentown, Pennsylvania?4. Football Spring Bits
starts at 58:43
The least interesting Spring Practice of our lives? Not much chatter since most of the team is decided (selecting the starting five on the offensive line needs to be decided?). Pretty much everything else is set besides cornerback. Amorian Walker is a cornerback now! There's been some hype, how much can we believe it? The rest of the chatter has been along the lines of "yeah! Donovan Edwards is good at football!" Otherwise, just trying to figure out which new guys are going to be good.
