    So I watched the Michigan exhibition game today...

    Beat Wayne state 47-39 and looked quite unimpressive. I only tuned in for the first half because I know they're our first 'true' test. 5 of 24 from three point range as well.

    I know it's a tough place to play and all, but match up wise I like our odds.

    47-39? Typical B1G basketball.

    This could be a completely different team in a month. Can't base anything off what they did against Wayne State tonight.

    It's an exhibition game; don't make any inferences from it.

    I kinda assumed it was this one:

    Wayne State University

    But they looked so un-athletic. And they're 18th..

    And I agree that it was a typical B1G game

    Are you sure? I think this situation calls for mass amounts of hand-wringing and pessimistic thoughts from Michigan fans. It might even be appropriate for them to consider cancelling the rest of their games, as teams never improve or work out any of their problems over the course of a season. They're obviously going to suck this year.

    Heaven forbid anyone ever let you witness a practice; you'll think the sky is falling.

    Just didn't think they looked like the number 18 team in the country.

    Maybe they didnt try, maybe they'll go undefeated. You're right I have no idea.

    Crisler Arena is not a difficult environment.

    Neither do I or most people, which is why pre-season rankings should be taken with a grain of salt. It's even harder because teams always sandbag it in an exhibition game; they'd be stupid to risk an injury by going all-out in a game that doesn't count.
