If you aren't able to watch tonight's season-opener against Northern Michigan on BTN Plus, it's going to be rebroadcast at 11:30 p.m. EST Sunday night on the regular Big Ten Network. Just set my DVR.
This might have been buried in the other thread, but I thought it deserved its own.
Nice write up from the Daily in their hoops preview coverage.
I had never heard this bit:
After watching Albrecht play in an open gym on campus during his recruiting trip, Beilein invited him and his parents over to his house for dinner. Following the meal, he took them into his home office.
“I was kind of intimidated, like, ‘Oh shit,’ ” Albrecht recalled thinking. “He was sitting there talking, then he paused. I could tell he was thinking, about ready to make a big decision. He’s like, ‘You’re either going to get me fired or make me look like a genius.’ And then he goes, ‘How would you like to come play basketball at Michigan?’ ”
Spike accepted on the spot.
Jerry Palm of CBS has Michigan as a 3 seed in his really early bracketology.
Michigan is in the East Regional, playing first round and second rounds in Des Moines against 14 seed Hofstra and 6 NC State or 11 Valpo.

Michigan announced the signing of Austin Davis, Xavier Simpson, Jon Teske andIbi Watson this afternoon. The Wolverines inked the four class of 2016 prospects to letters of intent on November 11th, the first day of the early signing period.

I remember hearing that Austin Davis may reclassify, but not sure if there is any real substance behind that.
