    Pregame: Illinois at Michigan, Tuesday, March 2nd, 6:00pm CT, ESPN

    Well my decision was mainly based off of out of state tuition but now you have me rethinking my life choices. I promise I will infiltrate the basketball team and become team manager and leak info on Juwan’s game plan and recruiting strategies. The Orange and Blue Kool Aid that runs through my...

    Pregame: Illinois at Michigan, Tuesday, March 2nd, 6:00pm CT, ESPN

    This one’s been circled on the calendar for a while for me. My brother goes to Michigan and is a huge wolverine fan, and I just got accepted and committed to go there as well. But I’ve been a die-hard Illini fan my whole life so it’s tough to decide who to root for. Oh wait, no it’s not. MUCK...

    Maryland finally without an All-Conference Guard although I guess Ayala could get there. Since joining the Big-10 in 2014 they've had either Melo Trimble or Anthony Cowan Jr. at the helm. I'm not sure which of those two I'd have rather had but both were great players. My gut says Cowan though.
