The Moving Screen: Early season thoughts on U-M/MSU, the inaugural power ranking

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 talk about Michigan State’s wins over Texas and UCLA in Las Vegas, touch on Michigan’s win over Chattanooga, look ahead to Michigan State-Louisville and Michigan-North Carolina and dive into our inaugural ranking “draft” of the Big Ten.

Listen to “Ep 4: Early season thoughts on U-M/MSU, the inaugural power ranking” on Spreaker.

    Great pod. Definitely agree with you that Livers is the best option to guard Maye. Don’t know if Teske would make sense. Also, I am sure Brendan is regretting that Minnesota pick at #6 in the power rankings! Cringed when I heard that yesterday… don’t trust a Richard Pitino-coached squad.

    Love the pod, Dylan! I’m not seeing ep 4 on Spotify this morning. Any ideas when it’ll be up?

    That is weird… I’m seeing it if I google search it.

    Wonder if there is some sort of caching or something going on? I’ll have to look into it.

    I restarted the app after reading your reply and it’s there. Sorry for the false alarm.
