starts at 1:00
Michigan is in the tournament and opposing sports fans are mad! Colorado State is probably the best draw for Michigan - they are the worst 6-seed in the field by some distance. The gang discusses Colorado State's roster. Hunter Dickinson is bigger than most Mountain West players. The Rams are excellent at defending twos but will give up a lot of open threes, Michigan can't have a 16% day.

2. Potential 2nd Round Match-Ups
starts at 20:48
It's probably not going to be Longwood. Tennessee is the best 3-seed in the field (two others are Big Ten teams that they wouldn't rematch Michigan with) - they've lost one game since the end of January. The Vols are the #3 defense in the country and wreak havoc with speed on the perimeter. They're not a juggernaut offensively. Better than having to play any of the #1 or #2 seeds, though. Tennessee has fast guards and are #8 in the country in take-aways. Need neutral-court Caleb Houston to hit half of his shots to help give Hunter Dickinson 1-on-1 matchups. Tennessee shoots well from three but not as well from two - Michigan needs to exploit this.3. Hot Takes and Big Ten Predictions
starts at 40:14
Takes hotter than Indiana fans who are like "why-do-we-have-to-go-to-Dayton-because-we-won-that-game-and-you-did-not-win-that-game-and-we're-just-going-to-ignore-what-happened-the-rest-of-the-season-cuz-that-doesn't-count-for-us-at-all-it's-just-the-one-game-THAT'S-WHAT-COUNTS." The Michigan win/loss pattern is a re-occurring theme. Not much optimism about a Big Ten team winning it all - bad news for Brian's annual bracket pick of Iowa winning it all. What's Wisconsin going to do when a non-Big Ten ref tells Brad Davison "you can't do that"?4. Hockey
starts at 1:00:01
Michigan beats Notre Dame at their own game in the coolest Yost environment in a long time. Michigan got a penalty for... embellishment? It felt like Michigan was cursed when the score was tied 1-1, but Michigan scored and held Notre Dame to four shots in the third period. Michigan is locked into the first or second overall seed in the NCAA tournament. Ohio State with a 41% chance of making the tournament- root for Bemidji!
