"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."
My bad if that has been posted already but I though it was important enough.
Mitch McGary has progressed to running on a hardcourt and next week plans to start jumping for the first time since shutting down his season with a back injury.
The Michigan sophomore still doesn't have a timetable for a return, though he does have a wish.
"Let's get back to Dallas [site of the Final Four] and we'll see," he said after Michigan beat Ohio State in a Big Ten semifinal on Saturday. "You never know what will happen."
He had been running on an underwater treadmill before finally progressing to the less forgiving hardcourts. As for the jumping, it will be slow and gradual, he said -- like everything with this rehab.
The biggest hill to climb, though, will be conditioning.
"I just have to get my legs back," he said. "It's tougher than people think it is. I have a lot of energy and I like to go all out, so it's been really difficult."
@Sportscenter just tweeted that Lunardi has bumped us up to a #1 seed following our win over Ohio. I would assume we would still have to win tomorrow to keep it though, especially if it's against Wisconsin. Still cool stuff.
"Joey Brackets making changes! @ESPNLunardi has Michigan climbing in front of Villanova for final 1 seed after win vs. Ohio State."
It seems to be common knowledge that the brackets are completed and submitted before the Big Ten Tournament Championship game is over. If Wisconsin loses to MSU, I think we're a #1 seed no matter the result. Either way let's win the whole damn thing. Go Blue!
This is all that needs to be said:
I'm in ACC Country and they're showing the ACC Semifinal on CBS AND ESPN...same game.
Michigan/OSU is on CBS, but not here locally.
What options do we have?! (I haven't checked CBSSports.com yet)
NOTE: It DOES look like CBSsports.com will carry the game. I've currently got the C-USA Championship Game up live...I assume Michigan/Ohio is after this.
