Well my rep went up a whole point overnight after i started this thing so i suppose thats good news. On to the days sports.
UM mens basketball lost to Illinois. The Illini have a good squad this year. What made the win even more impressive is they were without their team "leader". Hopefully Michigan has done enough to go dancing.
MSU beat up on Minnesota. No suprises there. MSU is a lock for a 2 seed and a dark horse for a 1. Depends on how the dice fall for that 1 seed. NC will have to lose big tomorrow in the ACC tourney i think as will louisville.
UM mens hockey beat WMU today to take a 1-0 series lead over WMU in a best of 3. I see UM getting to the frozen four this year. If they get a 1 seed in the NCAAs they are almost a lock.
The pistons won in OT tonight also. HUGE block by Maxiell to cover his butt for not boxing out in the final seconds. Nail biter there. The whole are we better without AI debate... yeah i have no idea. AI is an insane talent but destroys teams and i dont think people play as hard when he is out there. I would rather he never come to detroit but hey, you have to make it work somehow. Curry seems to be a bit shell shocked this year when it comes to being a HC. We will see if Detroit can improve their playoff seeding. You dont want to be a 7 or 8 seed this year! Too much power at the top.
Red Wings play a dreaded saturday game. They have not gone well the past few saturdays. I have the day off so i get to watch and see what happens. Hossa should be back. I dont know what that will do to shore up the seive that our D/goaltending has bcome.
Drive safe everyone!
