"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."
Apparently in the new NBA 2K16 game, in the MyCareer mode you will be able to choose from 10 schools for your player to attend, and Michigan is one of the 10. MyCareer mode follows you from high school, to college, and through the NBA.
Confirmation from 3 people with the game, Wisconsin is 10th college in NBA 2K16. Here are the other 9. pic.twitter.com/LNC8jsmpx1— Steve Noah (@Steve_OS) September 21, 2015
No real surprise here. MSU has a scary good class now with 3 247 composite Top 50 players and potentially one more with Miles Bridges yet to decide (the two have discussed being a package deal, but we all know how that can go). Bridges announces on October 3rd and has a top 3 of Kentucky, MSU, and Indiana - probably in that order. Oh well. Beilein's still gonna Beilein.

Battle 4 Atlantis bracket I made.
ESPN college basketbal analyst John Gasaway has projected what the AP pre-season top 25 will be. We're No. 18:
He has five B1G teams in his top 25, led by No. 2 Maryland.
Sam Webb reported this on WTKA this morning. Sam initially said Bridges, the five-star forward from Flint who goes to a prep school in West Virginia, would visit Michigan despite Cassius Winston no longer being an option for the Wolverines (Bridges and Winston are AAU teammates). But Sam then issued a correction to that, saying he'd just received word that the visit was off.
Sam also said he considers Bridges a "near lock" to commit to Kentucky, so this may not mean much.
The first Andy Mignery segment has Sam's correction:
EDIT: MeanJoe07's mother was a wombat. I'm just sayin'.
At age 60. One of the all-time greats and definitely owner of the best quote IMO when asked for his prediction for the 1983 NBA playoffs: "fo, fo, fo"
Three time MVP, one of 50 greatest players of all time, NBA Hall of Fame.
And he's gone. Too damn young.
