"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
So today is the "official" offering day of Michigan basketball. UMHoops will have coverage all morning and you can keep up with the live updates here:
Should be a very exciting day for basketball fans for sure. We had two commits on this day last year and I definitely think we could get a commitment from Devin Booker in the near future (offered this morning already).
Did you guys know there's a water park in Battle Creek?
We all know that a win over Penn State and an Ohio win over Michigan State will result in a three-way tie for the regular season. In this situation, all 3 teams are 1-1 against each other so head-to-head won't solve the tiebraker. What other factors will detemine the seeding?
We really could use the 1 or 2 seed. A quick look at the B1G standings reveals the 5 and 6 teams are Indiana and Purdue (both teams we split with), who play Sunday in Bloomington to determine the order. It would obviously be preferable to have an easier first game against the likes of Iowa, Northwestern, Illinois, or Minnesota.
How long is Beilein and how do we keep him here? I know that he has said that he wants to stay here, but his stock has never been higher. So do you think that we will be able to keep him and how can we ensure that we do?
Great seeing Denard representing Michigan: he was seen at Yost on Fri for the hockey game.
