starts at 1:00
Third straight week of a win that points Michigan towards the tournament and a loss that points them back to the bubble. Michigan finally shoots pretty decently against Illinois but the Illini shoot 59% from three. Curbelo doesn't look like a great player coming into this game but shoots 5-for-7 on FGs. The Hunter Dickinson mid-season Renaissance seems to have cooled down - offense and defense both seem to be off. DeVante' Jones is looking like a legit Big Ten point guard. Can Michigan use NIL deals to get everyone back next season?

Caleb Houston was the Kenpom MVP after going 5-for-9 from three. Rutgers shoots 17% from threes - Michigan gets to win a game because of the other team's poor three point shooting this time! Some contested pull-up jumpers from Rutgers even missed! Michigan needs a defensive wing next year, who's it going to be? At this point, just get into the tournament.3. Hot Takes and Gimmicky Top Five
starts at 34:33
Takes hotter than Illinois shooting a three from the logo. Everyone lost this weekend to keep the spotlight on Carol Hutchins for being the winningest softball coach in NCAA history. Who do you give the ball to on this team to shoot a game-winning three? Return of the Gimmicky Top Five! Top five things Juwan Howard is doing with his spare time. Brian discusses pretzels. Your podcast editor cannot relate to Brian's number one :(4. Hockey vs Notre Dame
starts at 57:44
A very frustrating end to the regular season. Officiating has been inconsistent all season and this weekend was the cherry on top. Michigan is tied with Bowling Green with the most penalty minutes on the season (517 minutes). Michigan does need to be smarter about cross checking opponents from behind, especially with a conference title on the line. Playing Notre Dame is like a microcosm of the NCAA tournament. Michigan has dropped to #2 in Pairwise behind Minnesota State and probably won't fall any further because there's a huge gap between #2 and #3.
