Five-star C Mohamed Bamba, the No. 2 player in the country, talked to reporters after his game last night and gave a final four of Duke, Kentucky, Texas ... and Michigan. Bamba took an official here in the fall.
"Michigan is still involved," he said.
I'm not getting my hopes up, but I'd say our chances are better than Jim Carrey in Dumb & Dumber.
Hey, we won the hoop game, but still running second in the Challenge.
Here are the 3-pt field goal stats of our opposition from the last five games:
As you can see, only once in the last five has a team hit fewer than 50% of their 3-pt attempts against Michigan, and even that was a pretty good 42% clip from Penn State.
On the recent WTKA roundtable, it was suggested (by Craig Ross, I believe) that this was just "bad luck". So, what do you all think? Bad luck, or bad defense? If other teams stop having the hot hand against us (regression to the mean and all), will the season suddenly seem a bit more salvageable?
Michigan -- and its 348th ranked 3-point defense (I wish I was kidding) -- will tip off against Nebraska in about 45 minutes. The bad news: This is likely another curb stomping by an average opponent. The good news, if you're the betting type: Nebraska is amazingly +9, so if you like free money today is a win. Go Patriots!
sorry to be that guy
should I buy on stubhub?
or should I try and scalp at the game?
