Michigan Friday: Morning Basketball

Michigan is going to tip off a basketball game at 10:30 Central/11:30 Eastern this morning.   There're two news worthy things going on right now: 

#1 - MSU lost to Maryland yesterday, so the rubber match between MSU and Michigan won't happen unless they somehow meet in the NCAA Tournament.  

#2- Michigan Basketball is saying that Eli Brooks is a game time decision.  Which in part is good news after seeing him carried off the floor on Sunday afternoon. 

Beat Maryland!  

Seems Michigan Football is back in the submarine as spring buzz has been non-existent so far.  A few players are saying that QB1 is McNamara right now and he is playing well and leading the team.   That JJ is learning the playbook but shows flashes of his ability to make plays.  Will be interesting to see what happens when that Texas Tech transfer gets to Ann Arbor.

Go Blue! It would be fun to see a deep tourney run.

Regarding Bowman. I know he brings experience and veteran leadership to a team that is need of that at the QB position. It makes sense why JH would want someone like that on the squad.

He (Bowman) is from TX, he was the starter for TT - lost the starting gig and transferred. Was it because he was benched or are there other factors?

I have no inside information but it appears he is leaving as he was benched...if he left his home state of TX after being benched I highly doubt he is coming here just to bring experience and being content as the #3 QB. If/when he isn't the starter what happens? This will be interesting to see it play out.
