Now that the football season has come to an abrupt stop, we can move on to other sports. This is a big week for the Michigan Men's Basketball team as they look to win the Old Spice Classic Tournament. The teams Michigan may face include the following: Xavier (3-0), Baylor (4-0), Creighton (2-1), Iona (3-0), Florida State (3-0), Marquette (3-0), and Alabama (2-1). This looks to be a pretty interesting group of teams and I can't wait until thursday for it to kick off. Michigan is the odds favorite to win, but are tied with Xavier, IIRC. I really think that Michigan is going to win this tournament. They play Creighton thursday at Noon, and then play the winner of Marquette and Xavier. I would put my money on us playing Baylor or Florida State in the finals on Sunday. Xavier and Marquette are both great programs, but Xavier lost their head coach and Marquette lost some big players. Big stage for the team to step up and prove its self early in the season. Should be an interesting weekend. Bracket lives here: http://www.umhoops.com/2009/08/03/2009-old-spice-classic-bracket/ . Thoughts on the tourney?
