SEGMENT ONE: REVISITING OHIO STATE
Mike Smith contributed more than the box score said. Maybe next time try Dickinson on Kyle Young? The benefits of sticking to the gameplan. Felt like Michigan got OSU’s best shot and still won. We’re the Tough Beilein Stylistic Opponent now.
SEGMENT TWO: POY RACE AND IOWA/INDIANA/ILLINOIS LOOKAHEAD
Luka or Ayo? While Garza is the favorite for good reason, we look at the argument that Dosunmu should be player of the year. Great offense overcomes great defense but does Garza push it too far? After that, we dive into previews of Iowa (great offense, makes other offenses great), Indiana (yuck, let’s move on), and Illinois (two major matchup problems and an interesting supporting cast). There may be a Michigan State tangent at the end because we can’t help ourselves.
SEGMENT THREE: THE COPE POST
We’ve wizened up and started making fun of really terrible articles on rival team blogs after wins now.
- “Nobody Really Cares If You Don’t Go To The Party”—Courtney Barnett
- “Campaign of Hate”—The Libertines
- ”You Know Me”—Thunder Dreamer
