1. Hoops vs Ohio State

starts at 1:00

Ohio State gets two bank threes: can you remember Michigan's last (competitive) bank shot? Understand now how Purdue felt when they had to take Isaac Haas and Caleb Swanigan off the court. Michigan's trying all kinds of switches. Livers had a terrible week. Castleton hesitated on his corner three attempt. Very matchup-dependent team. Livers discussion: not great in the lane, stay in your role.

2. Hoops vs Wisconsin

starts at 27:30

Vastly worst defensive performance of the year. Wisconsin can't miss their threes but this time they're open. UW let X go crazy in the paint—it didn't really work for them. DDJ hits his breakaways and Michigan's got the lead at the end. Communication went badly but straight-up they got beat on drives. Wagner coming around. Why Nunez? Michigan this year is just incredibly unlucky in threes.

3. Hot Takes and a Gimmicky Top Five

starts at 45:55

Ways Brian is like Adam Sandler. You can't sue me for this: Saul Goodman is not real, first of all. There's a 90s open shirt with a t-shirt thing going on.

4. Hockey vs. the World

starts at 1:18:24

Old fashioned three-point weekend at Minnesota on the head of Strauss Mann.
