Nissan is giving away one set of two tickets to the 3/5 MBB home game vs. Iowa. You'll also get a pre-game facility tour, be interviewed on-air, and get to meet the radio crew. Check it out.
Our friends over at maizenbrew have the story:
Daily reminder... pretty cool that top 3 are B1G coaches. Still early in the second round - keep up the good work!
Episode covered the entire day in New York at MSG with the hockey and basketball wins over Penn St. Interview with Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman and how it feels to beat Penn St. Also had some clips from the press conference introducing the new athletic director Warde Manuel. Is it signing day yet??? Enjoy
If you're like me and went to Michigan during the late 80's and early 90's and lived through the Christian Laettner years, you quickly grew to enjoy your basketball in two simple servings that probably remain until this day:
1. When Michigan wins.
2. When MSU/OSU/Duke lose.
With that, I gladly share that Coach Eye Chart's team is out of the top 25 for the first time in 8 years. Hopefully the first of a lot of good news in the next 20 hours:
Let me also add that no one does Grecian Formula like 69 year old Coach K with his precious dark black, bowl cutted coiffure.
Just released today, the latest bracketology has Michigan at a 7 seed. These are still fairly meaningless, but it is nice to see the team firmly off the bubble and creeping towards an attractive seed.
Depending on how the last 9 games + BTT go my guess is that anything from a 4 to a 10 or 11 is possible. I'm hoping for a 6. Barring a complete meltdown they aren't missing the tournament.
Other teams of note:
Xavier - 2
Iowa - 1
MSU - 3
Maryland - 3
Purdue - 4
Indiana - 6
Wisconsin is in the "next four out" category and OSU is nowhere to be found.
