Per Crain's Detroit, it looks like the Pistons may be moving downtown in 2017-18 if final details can be worked out with Olympia Entertainment (owner of Little Caesars Arena).
I don't know about the rest of the MGoBlogeratti, but I would love that move. For folks closer to Ann Arbor, it's just too hard to trek up to Auburn Hills on most nights, especially if there's any kind of snow on the roads. A quick ride on 14/96 would be much faster and I'd probably go to a lot more games.
Reminder that there is open practice tonight! Sneak some video/notes for those that can't be there.
I hope McGary is able to get himself over the injuries and self-inflicted wounds and get back on track on the basketball court somewhere. It sounds like he's looking at playing in either China or Europe.
USA Today released the coaches preseason Top 25 Basketball Poll today. See it here. Michigan got a handful of votes and finished 44th.
I compared the basketball poll with the current Top 25 football poll, and found that only four schools are ranked in both sports: Louisville, Wisconsin, West Virginia and North Carolina. It underscores how difficult it apparently is for schools to be elite in both sports. In the past 30 years, only two schools have won national championships in both sports: Florida and (yes) Michigan.
Any theories as to why Alabama can't be great at basketball and Kansas can't be great at football?
