If Michigan loses tonight, suddenly people will be freaking out about them; losing two games in a row, looking bad doing it, etc. They could come into Assembly Hall on a bad losing streak come late January. I expect Minny to win too.

I think Michigan takes it. Maybe by 10 or more. Could be wrong but they match up just fine with Minny. Fun one to watch!

Thing that has been noteworthy for me so far watching this game is the passing.
Good inside passing generally
Outside passes have been zipped, not the lazy arcs I have gotten too used to seeing.
Good game so far, advantage Michigan

So Illinois beats OSU and OSU beats Michigan and it looks like Michigan will beat Minny.

This means: Illinois > OSU > Michigan > Minny > Illinois.

(Illinois is 2 different teams)

Belmont taking it to E Kentucky. Murray State or Belmont are getting an at large bid.

Murray State=no chance for at-large. Best win is Evansville or St. John's and already lost to EKU. Would need to sweep Belmont and hope some of their non-con wins drastically improve, which is unlikely.

VCU beats St. Joe's in a barn burner... 92-86 in OT after VCU tied it at 80 at the end of regulation.
