Sink or Swim
Michigan gets a crack at #14 UCLA in Crisler today, and along with it a chance to catapult themselves into the top 25 for the first time since 1998. Yep, it's been a while. But UCLA has a damn good team right now. Michigan has perhaps been getting a bit too much hype this past week, but that's only because they weren't even on the national radar at the beginning of the year. Apparently bball pundits didn't pay attention to the fact that our entire team was injured last year (or so it seemed).
Win this game today and Michigan is likely 11-0 and a top 15 team heading into conference play. Lose, and all the naysayers will be raining down with talk about a weak schedule.
But you know what? In the grand scheme of the season, this game doesn't mean that much. Might make a 1 seed difference come March, but that's about it.
