With yesterday’s 20-10 win, the Michigan football team has now won 21 straight games against Indiana, and last lost at home to the Hoosiers in 1967. I wrote about the game, and the historical significance of an undefeated home season, for MVictors.com.
Actual good games to discuss this week, so we do that, sort of. There’s not much individual game analysis, but there’s plenty of playoff scenario discussion. Who controls their own destiny? Is there a path for Western Michigan? Plus, an official end to #NittanyWatch.
Among the answering of random questions from listeners, “political” “discussion,” and other nonsense, there is some college football talk. And if you want the nitty gritty, skip to the 55:30 mark for my chat with ratings guru Brian Fremeau of Football Outsiders. Steve would be sad if you did that, though.
It’s Steve’s birthday, so I let his audio sound better than mine for once. But I do almost trick him into two financially crippling bets. I indulge — join?! — the playoff committee conspiracy theorists, a move that Steve believes will increase listenership. Enjoy the new intro/outro and keep the comments coming!
Please just read my recap for CBS Local. I’m choosing, at least for now, to leave it at that as opposed to writing a few thousand more words about perhaps the greatest World Series game ever.
March Madness. Super Bowl. Sudden death. There are several two-word phrases that excite sports fans. Here’s another: Game 7. The Cubs and Indians and their long history of failure will play for the World Series trophy tonight in Cleveland. Joe Maddon made some strange bullpen moves last night, but the Cubs won. Read about the important moments and what to look for tonight in my CBS Local recap.
Hello, readers. I am excited to announce I’ll be covering the University of Michigan men’s basketball team for UMHoops.com. UM Hoops, run by Dylan Burkhardt, has been around since 2007. The site covers the team year-round, from recruiting to game coverage. It incorporates video and advanced statistical analysis. I’ll be covering specific games and delivering news updates and features. The Wolverines are not ranked in the preseason top-25, but they are receiving votes. With their entire starting five returning, they hope to return to the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row and sixth time in the last seven seasons.
