The Moving Screen: Fielding your questions on U-M, MSU and the Big Ten

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 answer we touch briefly on Michigan and Michigan State’s wins over the weekend and then dive into reader questions about Michigan, Michigan State in the Big Ten.
Listen to “Ep 7: Special edition! Fielding your questions on U-M, MSU and the Big Ten” on Spreaker.

1:46 – Anything to worry about in Michigan/Western Michigan?
8:32 – Quick look back at Michigan State/Green Bay
11:46 – Answering reading questions in this week’s mailbag


The podcast should be available just about everywhere that you can listen a podcast. If we are missing something important, let me know in the comments.

    Thompson was before my time, but man it was fun to show up to Crisler an hour early to watch Petway put on a show for the fans.

    My favorite in-game dunker was Webber. Great hands and really put it to people in traffic.

    CWebb was a different style. Average leaper, but had those great hands and control. I like the high flyers.!!! To each his own.

    The 1st year of dunking being re-instated was 1976-7 which was my freshman year at UM. Those alley oops from Ricky Green to Joel would blow the roof off of Crisler. Those were the days.

    UM had the best team in the Country that year. Beat the NCAA champs, Marquette in the last game of the regular season in Crisler. I still don’t understand how UNC-Charlotte beat Michigan in the elite 8 that year.
