Is it weird that I'm a bit more excited for this year's basketball season than I am for the rest of the football season?   I think we have a legit shot at a final four berth this year.

I don't recall ever feeling that way about Michigan sports, it'd always been football first for me, then hockey, then basketball. 

That said, it's still a bit too early to be focusing on bball, I'm going to wait until after the Nebraska game to shift to that.

to me how much is thought of Michigan basketball right now.  I think they will be good, and I know they brought in a real strong class.  But I have seen a publication with them ranked 3rd!?  I don't know man.  A first round exit a year ago losing a lot of experience across the board (including Smot which hurts more than noted).  Like I said, good, but it may be a little early for the kind of talk they are getting.

I grew up in an era where both Football and BBall were perennial top ten programs, nice to be back in that spectrum. I like our chances in the NIT and feel we'll win at least 3 of the 4 games but prefer all 4 wins of course, Go Blue!

Pitt and KSU will still be tough but i think we have the talent and the experience to run the table. Honestly, it doenst matter much its the big ten that counts. Would b nice though to add another trophy to Crisler
