|15 hours 9 min ago||Minnesota and Stanford are||
Minnesota and Stanford are sitting 47th and 48th in the RPI also. Nebraska is at 50th. If those teams drop even just a little bit Michigan's 10-5 "Top 50" wins suddenly becomes a pedestrian 5-5. That's your difference between a 2-seed and a 3-seed at this point and it's largely out of Michigan's hands.
Although a run to the BTT finals would end all speculation. It's just that Michigan prefers to end up opposite Wichita State or Florida... not Arizona.

Nebraska will finish the conference at .500. That's great but COY isn't solely based on "performance versus expectation" it's also based on end results. When you win league championships you get the inside tracks for these accolades and rightfully so.
Also, Izzo has only 2 outright COY awards in the B1G so this one needs to get to JB so he can pass Izzo in a couple more seasons.
|1 day 20 hours ago||Novak, Douglass, and Morgan||
Novak, Douglass, and Morgan are the three players I'll remember above all others when looking back at the Beilein "turnaround" era.
Jordan Morgan: Two Big Ten Championships, 6-2 record against MSU, wins at every venue in the Big Ten, and a Final Four. Best resume of any Michigan player in over 25 years, insanity.

Don't look at his predictions, just use the matrix composite which ends up being more accurate than almost anyone else.

Saint Louis is a poor man's Ohio State. Same level defense, worse offense. They've lost every tough game they've been in this year.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Nik, Glenn, and Mitch are all||
Nik, Glenn, and Mitch are all as good as gone as Burke and Hardaway were last year. Not that I wouldn't love for them to stay, but they made the decision last year they wanted to have one more year of "fun" before becoming professionals.
Next year's team is still going to be tremendously talented with a lineup of Walton, LeVert, Irvin, Donnal, and Horford. Not to mention a junior Albrecht and incoming freshmen Doyle and Chatman.

Home stretch, here we come.
Let's play unconscious versus Minnesota like they did against Nebraska at home instead of the "usual" see how far we can get down before coming back ploy.
|1 week 21 hours ago||For B1G seeding purposes I||
For B1G seeding purposes I think we want to have MSU and Wisconsin as the 2 and 3 seeds to give Michigan the best shot at winning.
Michigan is playing for NCAA seeding now, keep winning and they can get to the 2-line!

this is abysmal, ten minutes in and they haven't had one good offensive set
|1 week 1 day ago||Saint Louis||
Please, they are Ohio State lite (mirrored stats on kenpom but with worse offense) and have lost the only two games they played against real competition (Wisconsin, Wichita).
I will take Saint Louis across from Michigan in the bracket a thousand times before Kansas, Duke, or Creighton.

Don't be afraid to move up a diaper size. That was our #1 cause of blowouts, trying to get extra mileage out of the Size 1, 2 or 3 diapers.

Trailed to FSU by 16 early in the second half this year.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||The way I'm calculating it||
The way I'm calculating it right now the Russians will either be the 4 or the 5 seed with Canada and Finland being the 1 and 4/5 seed respectively depending on their game outcome (assuming no OT).
USA will happily take being the 3 seed on the bottom half of the bracket and take Switzerland and Sweden over Russia/Canada/Finland.
|3 weeks 5 days ago||Agreed. They already won||
Agreed. They already won their close call games. It's really hard to see them losing more than once more the rest of the way.

This is a championship game.
B1G championship race will be mostly determined over the next four games. Michigan can't lose two in this stretch and still win the championship (unless one of those wins is over MSU and then they would still need help).
MSU has avoided losses in 3 OT squeakers and they're only going to get better with Payne coming back. They will be favored in almost every game the rest of the way.

Pregame wide angle stadium shots on BTN, place looks deserted...

Game had nothing to do with Yogi Ferrell's shooting and everything to do with Michigan's offense not showing up.
If you knew before hand that Indiana was going to score 63 points you would have been 99% sure of a Michigan win.
Only question I have is how can one player be allowed to completely neutralize Stauskas at one end and not have to spend any energy doing it? This screams coaching adjustment.
|5 weeks 16 hours ago||Tourney seeding was fickle,||
Tourney seeding was fickle, UM got barely bumped from a 3-seed due to tournament not wanting rematches. And Michigan only missed a one-seed because of the Brust 3 pointer and the indiana rollout. Without those two losses (hell, throw in the meltdown @PSU), Michigan is the outright B1G regular season champs and on the 1 line.
There's no way Michigan can get to the 1-line this year. It's way too crowded. 2-seed is the ceiling.

Breaking Beilein treatment, grab a pic of Beilein seated and stoic and do it up like the "all hail the king" ads for the show.

Hello, I'm an NBA scout (not for the Pistons) and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful compilation of videos on this player I hadn't really been looking at until now.
This has been eye opening!
|5 weeks 1 day ago||Outside of Madison and Ann||
Outside of Madison and Ann Arbor it's hard for me to see any more losses on MSU's schedule this year. They're unfortunately a super good team with an even higher ceiling with Payne.
Can Michigan finish out the conference 8-3 to share the conference title? That's a tall order.

Ace's way of saying gif is far superior. Just like it's pop not soda.
|5 weeks 3 days ago||The one positive of||
The one positive of Michigan's remaining schedule is that the two games they will have the longest to prepare for are Wisconsin (4 days rest) and MSU (6 days) home games.

6 home, 5 away for Michigan we play a one-off @Illinois not at home.

Go Blue win the B1G!

Currently Michigan has taken 135 3-point attempts in conference play which ranks them 8th out of 12 teams. They certainly aren't just jacking up more threes than anyone else in the B1G and only winning because they're lucky and going in.
The only game you could say Michigan "lived by the three" was in this most recent matchup vs MSU.

Put up a banner this year and then I won't feel bad about him going pro. That's the deal we have, right??
