Need to change my “mojo” with some hoops talk - the multiple Sparty Trolls on the football posts are ruining my Christmas spirit.
Before Michigan travels to Wisconsin on January 19th for what should be an epic road battle with the Badgers, we have seven more games: three home “scrimmages” before the end of 2018 (Western Michigan, Air Force and Binghamton), and four games to start the BIG season in early January – home games v Penn St, Indiana and Northwestern, and a trip to Champaign to face the Illini on 1/10. Seven very winnable games.
Which of these is most dangerous? Have to feel it is the Hoosiers at home – but Illinois did give Gonzaga a game, only losing by six, 84-78.
Don’t want to be overconfident – getting through the BIG schedule is going to be brutal this year, for all the teams. But would be nice to get Johns or DeJulius in the rotation (if they are ready) before the heart of the BIG schedule kicks in with that trip to Madison.
