Sparty makes his way to the barn tonight at 8:30 Eastern for a matchup with Tubby Smith's golden gophers in a matchup that could put Michigan in the driver's seat for a big ten championship.
The spartans enter as 6 point favorites, and they obviously know their way around a barn, but it is a road game in the big ten, and if the gophers can find a way to hold onto the ball and big ten officiating holds to form they just might win one for the good guys.
The numbers are somewhat stacked against the gophers, but Julian Welch is on somewhat of a tear, going 7-12 overall and 5-10 from downtown against Northwestern.
Sparty is going to have to slip up for Michigan to have a shot, and their games at Indiana and against Ohio loom large in Michigan's hopes for a B1G championship...But a win by the gophers would certainly be huge--both for their ncaa hopes as well as Michigan's.
I guess what I am trying to say is...
