[After THE JUMP: the player and what we said]


1. Ohio State

starts at 1:00

Holding for the last shot good, holding for that long, not so good. Three point luck versus quality of looks. Why didn’t we recruit the kid from Grand Rapids? Lots of things could have been enough, but missing Livers when you lose a game of threes kind of makes it a one-note explanation.

2. Maryland

starts at 19:26

Why is Morsell so mad? Oh right his face got dented. Anyway Maryland is very loud for a team that got put in a trash can three times by Michigan this year. Wondering if Turgeon really wanted to go with Howard or if he trusted those around him to break it up first.

3. Livepodding the Bracket Reveal

starts at 30:45

First upset is App State isn’t in our bracket. Gonzaga got the tough draws that might be replaced by standby two’s. Seth’s about 20 seconds ahead so he gets to laugh for that long before the others learn things like MSU is in a play-in game.

4. Michigan’s Corner Preview

starts at 57:20

Good draw? We skip the 16 seed (sorry Virginia) to get into LSU and St Bonaventure. LSU is athletic and long but not coached at all—they chuck and chuck some more. St Bonnies doesn’t pull their starters off the court, pretty mid-range heavy as well. Guards are chuckers but they have a PF who gets to the rim. FSU is really tall as usual, Colorado wins at home because of their elevation but they’re way more beatable down to Earth.

5. The 2 and 3 Seeds on Our Side

starts at 1:20:28

Alabama is the most modern-coached team in the game—they shoot fast, shoot threes and at the rim, and are really good on defense. Texas is biglargehuge and could put Dickinson in foul trouble.


Thanks to MGoReader Saulius Polteraitis from The Champaign Saints who offered to let us use their music on short notice here. Check them out on Spotify.
