1. Harbaugh Extension and Football Program Outlook

Ba ba ba ba ba basketball, gimme the ball cuz I’m gonna dunk it. Oh right, that. Ba ba ba ba

2. Hoops vs Minnesota

starts at 28:09

That. It must be miserable to play against Michigan. Eli loses a tooth so we get more Brown, like more Brown. Also like everything that Johns does except that he wont’ do more of it. Dickinson, oh Dickinson. Smith staying in front of Carr means he’s legit okay at defense now? Finding nits to pick in lieu of the canceled game against the picking Nits.

3. Big Ten Hoops

starts at 51:10

This segment is not entirely making fun of Michigan State, but there’s a lot of making of Tom Izzo’s insane roster management. Indiana is making everything out of one guy, often late in the clock. Illinois opponents found out how to slow down Ayo, and Kofi’s not getting the ball enough. Minnesota churning out disaster factory candidates. Iowa gonna Iowa. Ohio State again gets a Rutgers game with Myles Johnson in early foul trouble—nice to see something go that athletic department’s way for once. Wisconsin is interesting but beatable.

4. Hot Takes, WBB, and Hockey

starts at 1:44:40

With everybody out for COVID we have the Naz game. Might be putting too much on Dilk. Hailey Brown has been stepping up in Leigha Brown’s absence but the ceiling on this team is much lower without key parts of their roster. In hockey, an 11-3 weekend went almost as badly as it could, with the hockey gods awarding MSU goals on their first, penultimate, and last shots in a game Michigan otherwise dominated. Blech.
