1. Maryland

(starts at 1:00)

Michigan ruined Fernando in the first quarter; Teske's defense was scrumtrulescent. His shot: not so much, but you gotta keep taking those. He might be hurt a little because his form looked off and he kept shorting them. Poole on a run of bad thruck. DeJulius! Don't look now but Michigan's free throw shooting in conference play puts them in the 82nd percentile among Big Ten teams since 2006. X unearthed the ghost of Spike Albrecht, is a sidearm pitcher now.

2. Penn State

(starts at 25:50)

The saving grace of this game is that none of our Penn State friends saw it. Beilein gets booted for a three-finger salute. A lot of being down in that game was dumb luck, where PSU had open threes off scrums and rebounded airballs, and shot 80% on other two's. Teske was playing don't-get-fouls ball. X getting hacked badly in the lane all game, also had an uncharacteristic four turnovers. Nobody for Matthews to erase on Penn State, but some uncharacteristic Michigan defensive breakdowns.

3. Around the Big Ten

(starts at 45:45)

Rutgers rampage ended by the least probable shot in the history of corn grower basketball. This conference is all knives: put Penn State in the America East and they'd be a popular 12 seed. Even IU is still hanging onto a seed thanks to a win at Breslin. What was PSU thinking when they made Bryce-Jordan twice the size of their best turnout?

4. Hockey Oversigning

(starts at 1:01:48)

How many can they fit into this class? Michigan probably has six spots for 12 to 16 commits who say they're coming in 2019, and the 2020 class is even more loaded. The whole hockey world seems upside down, and the small hockey programs, who desire 20-year-old freshmen and silly unattended playoff venues, are in control and running things against what's best for the game and the athletes.

Here's not looking at you, kid.

My biggest question going into the MSU game this weekend is whether Matt McQuaid will close his mouth at all before, during or after the game.
