So No. 5 Xavier just beat No. 1 Villanova. This only helps Michigan: we lost to a team that is now gunning for a number 1 seed in the NCAA tourney. I realize that Michigan could have had a "harder" non-conference schedule, but cumong . . . if you are playing a number one seed in the non-conference part of the season, that's pretty significant.
In highly irrelevant news to most Michigan fans, Xavier has just downed the basketball and football powerhouse the University of Cincinnati in the annual Crosstown Shootout in a double OT classic! I don't know if any of you were able to catch the game, but as a Xavier student, I am uber-excited! Go Muskies (and Wolverines as well).
