Michigan Tuesday: Big Game Tonight

ESPN has been promoting this game for nearly a week.  #2 Michigan will take on #4 Illinois tonight at Crisler.   It the latest game of the year for the Wolverines and the Big Ten after Michigan beat now #5 Iowa and #7 Ohio State. 

It's also another monster match-up between big men.  We know about Hunter but tonight he is going against a brick wall in Kofi Cockburn.  I would suggest that Austin Davis use all of his fouls tonight on Mr. Cockburn, who is built like he is ready for WrestleMania's main event.  

Illinois's best player is still questionable as Ayo Dosunmo is healing from a facial fracture that he suffered a week ago. 

Either way this should be a great game and if you have been missing Michigan Basketball this is your week, as the Wolverines play 3 times and need 1 win for the Big Ten Championship.   Let's go!!!

  • The NIT will only be 16 teams 
  • The #2 player in Michigan in the 2022 class, 4 star LB Josh Burnham is starting to trend away from the Wolverines to ND. 
  • Mgoblog does some roster analysis on the Spring Roster.  To net it out:
 Jack Stewart to DL from OL

David Ojabo to LB from DL 

Walk-on WR's: Schoenle and McCurry are both gone

JJ is #9

Edwards #7

Dunlap #22

Dixon #10 

Anthony #1 

Crippen #51

Anderson #62

El-Hadi #58

Bounds #72

Colson #25

Rumler from #55 to 70

Wheeler 25 to 44

Green-Warren 6 to 28

How sad. Michigan had its biggest game of the year, at home, and the game would solidify the conference championship and a #1 seed.

We came out flat, lazy, tired, and disinterested.

3 minutes of that and Michigan will get knocked out of the NCAAs by mediocre teams.

Wow - they either better wake up NOW or it's going to be a waste of everything they've worked for.

That was pathetic - sad really.
