This is the second of a pair of half-sized episodes so we could get one out between the games last weekend.

The Sponsors

Thank you to Underground Printing for making this all possible. Rishi and Ryan have been our biggest supporters from the beginning. Check out their wide selection of officially licensed Michigan fan gear at their 3 store locations in Ann Arbor or learn about their custom apparel business at undergroundshirts.com.

And let’s not forget our associate sponsors: HomeSure Lending, Ann Arbor Elder Law, the Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, Michigan Law Grad, Human Element, The Phil Klein Insurance Group, and Information Entropy, the Raw Power app for iOS by Gentleman Coders.

And introducing SignalWire, which is the virtual office platform we recorded this on because we’ve had it up to here with Zoom (use the code MUPPETS and they’ll buy your team lunch!)

1. Recapping LSU

starts at 1:00

That was terrifying. Hurrah for the regression to the mean on lean twos and floaters off the dribble. They were who we thought they were, weren’t they? Smith struggled with length but his offensive creation wasn’t missed when Chaundee was on the court. Also how nice is it that Michigan has so many guys who can win them a game? Also the refs: 10 really bad calls, split unevenly, felt worse because every possession was life or death.

2. Previewing FSU

starts at 25:18

Remember the last FSU team? They’re like that: super duper tall, use a lot of bench in weird places, including having the best player on their team, Scottie Barnes, coming off the bench. This is because they can’t defend the rim without their two 7-foot centers who haven’t faced a lot of post-ups. Not great off-the-dribble shooters which is good news because no guard is less than 6’4”.

3. Big TEHN!

starts at 48:23

We survey the carnage of our conference mates who didn’t make it out of the opening weekend, from least to most disappointing. Rutgers is now in the Big Ten since they didn’t make it out of Round 2 despite being expected to win at some point.
