For the sixth episode of the UM Hoops Podcast, we had our engineer back but unfortunately we were down a co-host. Dave Merritt couldn’t be with me but we still managed to record a great show. I was joined by current Michigan basketball captain Josh Bartelstein as well as Chris Vannini from the excellent Michigan State blog The Only Colors.
With Josh, we addressed some of the difficulties Michigan ran into against Penn State on Wednesday.
