It took us a while to get going after the break, but Dave Merritt and I finally got in the studio to record a new podcast. We had a good time and got to talk Michigan’s loss to Ohio State on Sunday as well as look ahead to the Wolverines’ match-up with Minnesota at The Barn. Here’s a quick rundown:
We kick off by talking with ESPN.com national college basketball writer Myron Medcalf. Medcalf, who worked for the Minneapolis Star Tribune for four years prior to hooking up with ESPN in 2011, previews Michigan’s game against the Golden Gophers this Thursday.
Next, former Michigan captain Stu Douglass joins us all the way from Pamplona, Spain. Stu gives us some insight into what he’s seen from the Wolverines so far this season, including what he likes about Nik Stauskas, a fellow lang-range sharpshooter. We also chat about Stu’s experience in Spain and what it’s like playing pro ball. Unfortunately, Stu was cut off due to international calling trickery.
Dave and I finish things off by f...

Michigan sophomore point guard Trey Burke says the Wolverines are responding well to the first taste of adversity experienced Sunday at Ohio State. Burke discusses the atmosphere in practice, recaps his performance in Columbus, and explains why he loves playing Minnesota so much.
(AP) Trey Burke and Michigan can put aside for now the idea of being ranked No. 1 in the country.

No. 5 Michigan plays at No. 9 Minnesota on Thursday night.
Although the quantity of three point attempts has decreased in John Beilein’s offense this season, there’s no secret that his offense leans on perimeter players. The Wolverines lean on four perimeter players – Trey Burke, Nik Stauskas, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Glenn Robinson III – to do the bulk of the heavy lifting on offense. Jordan Morgan and Mitch McGary at...
