Disappointing: That MSU hasn't lost anymore games.
Overachieving: Minnesota 3-2 (won @Wisc)
About to fall off: OSU
About to win more: Purdue

Kenpom isn't trying to predict NCAA seedlines just margin of victory if two teams played. All bracketologists have M on the 1 line (the few in the matrix that don't are extreme outliers/homers).

He leads the nation in floor slaps.

Mitch McGary made a Final Four despite his injuries/suspension so it's hard to put him higher than Gary or Peppers.

Gary is an upstanding individual, generational athlete, #1 overall recruit, and you know he's going to crush it at the NFL level. So when you look at what his legacy at Michigan will be- 2-1 vs MSU, 0-3 vs OSU, zero championships, zero post-season - there's a lot to be vaguely unsatisfied with.

Ohio State got boatraced by Purdue. Got super lucky to get out of Maryland with a win. Nebraska shot themselves in the foot and gave that game away as did Frames Janklin. So really this is,  performance wise, a 4-loss OSU team coming into The Game.

There are no ghosts, the better team will win.

Screw #72, Indiana, O'Neil and his entire crew.

Question: was Quinn Nordin hurt or was this position change the result of all the awful field goal kicking in the past several weeks?

Uche has quickly become my favorite player name to exclaim loudly, randomly, wherever I am, regardless of circumstances.

Feels to me like this could be one of the least "Beilein-like" seasons ever. Lot of defense, not a lot of shooting. Lots of driving and pick-and-roll baskets, lots of sub-20% 3 point shooting nights.

6 for sure, LSU will 100% be in front of us, if not Notre Dame as well, and I can totally see them putting Georgia at 5.

This was an inevitability as soon as the "investigation" two days into its work announced there was a two week timetable to completion. It was a slightly more polished version of MSU bringing in Engler. They had a set, desired outcome, and this was the path to it.

Every day I cry I become more hardened and more radical in my hatred towards cowards and bullies like yourself.

Any thought to the impact going through a near-death experience in a plane crash might have on Beilein's bucket-list mentality?

04/10/2018 - 4:51pm I would be absolutely shocked

I would be absolutely shocked if Wagner came back for his senior year. I would be equally disappointed if Matthews signed with an agent (go ahead and test the waters but please come back).

Beilein has been burned by attrition too much in the past few years not to be out there looking at all manner of transfers and recruits.

04/03/2018 - 12:16pm The only way next season can

The only way next season can be "better" is winning the national title. While we bring in some great recruits, there's no one replacing Wagner, so the answer to "can we be better?" is: maybe? probably not.

04/02/2018 - 2:23pm I spent all day yesterday

I spent all day yesterday lying in bed sick, making a basketball GIF. Today I'm just sort of spacing out. 9:20pm start time is no bueno.

04/02/2018 - 2:18pm Texas Tech's defense is

Texas Tech's defense is barely in the top-30 in efficiency since February, FWIW.

04/01/2018 - 10:24am Gonna be honest, is there

Gonna be honest, is there really any land Villanova controls that's worth getting? Hawaii, I suppose. But Michigan pretty much has ALL the good land.

03/30/2018 - 3:21pm One thing I found interesting

One thing I found interesting about Duncan's story is that his freshman year at Williams he played a major role in the 2014 DIII Final Four, dropping 30 points in the semifinal vs Amherst and 17 in the title game vs Wisconsin-Whitewater, despite his team losing on a buzzer-beater layup. I want him to win a title and come full circle!

03/28/2018 - 4:31pm There is no need to go small

There is no need to go small against Loyola. They have been exteremely fortunate thus far in the tournament that all the good big players they were supposed to face were out with injury (Kyle Alexander, 6'11" for Tennessee and Dean Wade, 6'10" for K-State).

Tennessee played a lineup with no one taller than 6'7", Nevada also didn't play anyone taller than 6'7" (their 43% 3-point sniper had an 0 for 8 outing), and K-State laughably went with five players shorter than 6'5".

Michigan can impose its will on Loyola because Loyola is 2011 Michigan with a higher turnover rate. Driving lanes will be open and MAAR/Simpson have no need to fear shots getting blocked. Wagner will be able to shoot over everyone and get to the bucket whenever he wants.

03/28/2018 - 12:44pm The Medcalf article

The Medcalf article referenced here is an achievement in and of itself. A gift that keeps on giving this March. For those keeping score he predicted Arizona to the final four, Michigan State over Gonzaga in the championship game, then doubled down by ranking Michigan 15th out of 16 teams in the Sweet 16 and now writes an entire column attributing college basketball three point shooting exclusively to the Golden State warriors. It is, as listed, impressive.

03/27/2018 - 12:15pm Not sure if it's been

Not sure if it's been mentioned but we are actually experiencing it right now -- Moritz Wagner is here leading the way because of the 2013 run.

03/25/2018 - 2:55pm What's the state of Michigan

What's the state of Michigan basketball? I'd say strong. To quite strong.

03/21/2018 - 1:13pm The top 5 teams on Barttorvik

The top 5 teams on Barttorvik since 2/11 are Duke, Michigan, Villanova, Kentucky, and Houston in that order. For reference Texas A&M is 47th (Gonzaga 10, FSU 53). I think we're more likely to see Madison Square Garden offensive Michigan at Staples Center. Good riddance to Intrust Arena!

03/20/2018 - 2:23pm Because the one complaint

Because the one complaint everyone has about soccer is "too much scoring".

I'm greedy.

I want a Final Four run this year AND I am really stoked about a starting 5 of Simpson/Poole/Matthews/Livers/Teske for next season with all the talent coming in.

Who knows where/when they post game times?

Not quite correct. Jordan Morgan attempted (and missed) one free throw in that game!

03/06/2018 - 3:12pm Yep I won't be tuning in.

Yep I won't be tuning in.

03/06/2018 - 10:24am I was just thinking the same

I was just thinking the same thing. Let the chips fall where they may, I think Michigan has a great shot at a 3-seed with games in Detroit.

03/05/2018 - 8:29pm You can safely rule out

You can safely rule out Charlotte, Dallas, and PIttsburgh as possible sites for Michigan based on other top-16 projected teams. If not Detroit you're looking at a very high probability of Boise with a slight chance of San Diego.

03/05/2018 - 1:23pm M seems destined for the

M seems destined for the 3-line this year. I'd kind of rather be a 3-seed with Auburn/Cincinnati as the 2 instead of facing Duke, or rematches of UNC/Purdue. We want to root hard against Clemson, Tennessee, Texas Tech, WVU, and Arizona.

03/05/2018 - 1:01pm Yep, you're correct. Still I

Yep, you're correct. Still I think it's nice to see exactly what the committee sees (or doesn't see) when determining S-Curve.

03/05/2018 - 12:55pm For those wanting to get to

For those wanting to get to the source it appears the NCAA is posting daily updates to the official "team sheets" that the committee will use to determine seeding. As of today, Michigan is the 13th sheet listed (ordered by averaging the six rating metrics used), MSU is 15th.
