The Moving Screen: Thoughts on Michigan’s 5-0 start

I’m teaming up with The Athletic’s Brendan Quinn for a weekly podcast throughout the 2018-19 season. We’ll be tackling Michigan, Michigan State and Big Ten basketball at large with a combination of rational analysis and hot takes.

In this episode we focus on Michigan’s 5-0 start with big wins over Villanova and Providence before jumping into a few mailbag questions.

Listen to “Ep 3: Thoughts on Michigan's 5-0 start” on Spreaker.

    Very good. The Poole discussion in particular.

    The podcast is great but you guys need some intro or theme music to make it more captivating from the start.

    Really enjoyed this pod. Admittedly didnt get through the last 15 min yet, but when you and Brendan talked about the most surprising/shocking thing from the past week, for me it was definitely the proficiency of Iggy defensively. He was extremely good one-on-one, even laterally which I was surprised by, and understands the team concepts already. Obviously this fits in line with your answer about how elite the defense is, but there is really no weak player in the top 7 to attack. Great stuff!

    My surprise was the leap in performance from the first two games to games 3-5. They almost look like they are in NCAA tournament mode.
