WTKA Roundtable 1/19/2017: The Raw Uncut Takes

image

Things discussed:

  • Wisconsin moral victory: What are the odds of Michigan basketball going 8-4 down the stretch to match last year?
  • Weird freaky three-point luck of opponents? We all agree they don’t defend non-threes well.
  • Don’t yell at refs at the Kohl Center in German? Getting more physical is laudable; you’re not turning these guys into Bill Laimbeer. FREE JOHN TESKE!
  • Ty Wheatley Sr. moves on, how will Michigan? Sam shares some facts about the Wheatley situation that rather definitively refute the assertions of certain persons who get really angry when random internet people are politely skeptical of those assertions.
  • Talk names: The Beast, Mike Hart, stealing from Indiana or Penn State.
  • General Harbaugh turnover: it’s fine. You’ll never get a Bo-like staff again.
  • Recruiting: Aubrey Solomon’s great quickness. James Hudson: greatly desired by Michigan. Wheatley loss hurts with Gay.
  • Penn State could win the conference (no really win it not…) next year?
  •  
  • You can catch the entire episode on

Segment two is here. Segment three is here.

When I go to subscribe to the MGoPodcast in the Podcast app, it says "The provided link is not a valid podcast." This started last week when trying to download the roundtable from 1/12. I can't download any episodes individually either.

Can anybody advise?

Not able to listen to the podcast, but what was the gist of this?  I've heard a lot of speculation about Wheatley being forced out or being unhappy that - absent further evidence - seems pretty irresponsible.

I just subscribed to this podcast today and the first thing I hear is the Michigan basketball team is going to go 8-4 or 7-5 the rest of the way. I'm really supposed to take these guys seriously and continue listening?

Not with that attitude. Why can't they go now 7-4 (won on Sat) the rest of the way? Opponents had been shooting 52% from 3 pt range until the Illinois game on Sat. This team has the talent to finish strong and make the tournament. If you're really a fan, have a little faith and cheer for your team. They might surprise you.

Hey, I have been bearish about his team from minute one and think the odds of UM going 8-4 the rest of the way are abut the same as the moon exploding but I sure hope it happens(the team not the moon). I also don't see 7-5 or the 6-6 KenPom predicts,  I would put the over/under at 4,5 but concede the advanced stats and some eyeball elements are better than outcomes to date, [Teams can't keep dropping in bricks, can they?]
