    I think we have a great team this year. We are top 10 quality. Go Blue!

    I still don’t see Purdue and Wisconsin ahead of us at season’s end if we remain healthy.

    This is stupid and I’m sure I’m wrong, but whenever there’s a discrepancy between the AP and coaches polls in either football or basketball, it feels like its always the coaches poll that ranks UM lower. Weird observation…
