It was just a minute. Takes that long to type it up.

Edit: might need a little explanation with the posts already in there, but as someone suggested to e once, you could just edit it and turn it into a Fiesta Bowl open thread. We're going to need it later anyway.

It looks like the line is around 10-11 in favor of UM in Vegas. I believe Kenpom had us as an 8 point favorite ... both seemed low to me, but what do I know?

It looks like Tim Hardaway Jr. is warming up and APPEARS available to play (according to multiple sources on Twitter). They also are saying Hearn participated in warmups for NW, but that might just be part of his recovery.

Because of the NBA lottery contract Trey Burke is obviously going to sign after this year, he made more money by coming back than he would have by going out last year.  Really, everybody wins here.  Better yet, more players might follow his example and not leave Michigan until they are certain first round picks, preferably in the upper half.
