This is partly due to my allegiance to the BigTen, however, I really think that
Michigan is playing their best, right now and with the talent on that team, they should win today.
If not, Theeeee Iowa Hawkeyes will be the lone BigTen team standing in Post season play.
'Texan by birth, Hawkeye by the Grace of God'
Not sure Michigan is playing their best right now. A matter of perception, I guess. They were 6-6 in Feb/Mar games before the dance started and for all practical purposes should have lost to Kansas. When you have only 7 losses on the season and 6 came in your last 12 games, not sure one could conclude they are at their best.
What they have done is survive. Maybe the Kansas game spoke to destiny. If they buy that, they have a chance against Florida. The good news is Florida also had a mediocre close in Feb/Mar.
Living in Florida, I need Michigan to win for multiple reasons. That said, Michigan's youth could be a problem. If they lag behind in this game, they won't be as lucky as they were against Kansas.

mi and the 18 point lead to start the game
Wrestling owns the Olympics
I like MIchigan in this one. I have a feeling they'll start the game strong.
this mcgary kid is amazing - i don't recall that he did that much v iowa - as i recall O and mel kept him under wraps pretty well.
now he seems like the best player on the court in the ncaas
McGary played some against Iowa, however, he has really come on toward the End of the year.
Believe that he did not start any game until first game of NCAA tourney.
And as I predicted in the OP, the BigTen will have a entry in the FInal Four.
Congrats to Michigan. This game is already over, at half-time.
mi getting lazy .......
Michigan relies a lot on young players. It's showing right now.
With Hardaway, Burke, and Robinson, the Wolverines had the heart of a really, really good team. But they lacked an inside game to mess with their outside game. Horford is good, not great. Same with Morgan. But McGary has grown up over the season and now looks to be on equal footing with the three proven wonderkids. He has really come on and now Michigan is the class of the league in the Big Ten and looks like a potential NCAA Champion too!!!!

As long as they make it to the final to at least keep the debate of the B1G as the best conference this year.
well - chatting up the future is what these boards are made of. an NCAA champ and a NIT champ would be cool!
I have no idea how many, if any, Wolverines will go pro early this year. But while keeping that condition in mind, They look to be the class of the Big Ten next year. We should be very damned good too. But this Michigan team looked otherworldly good tonight.
Nice win for Michigan and the conference....
bp.........as stated in my earlier post.
Game was over at half time.
BigTen has a rep in the Final Four.
There was never any drama in that game, after Stauskas hit the 5th 3 pointer.
Way Over.........nice try though, bp.........not sure if was worth the effort?

What debate can you be talking about?
EVERYONE is aware that the BigTen is By Far the best conference in College basketball.
