Podcast: Weekend preview and Big Ten hot takes

The Moving Screen is a podcast collaboration with The Athletic’s Brendan Quinn. We’ll be tackling Michigan, Michigan State and Big Ten basketball at large with a blend of rational analysis and hot takes.

We recap Tuesday’s MSU at Illinois and Michigan at Rutgers games before previewing an eventful weekend of Big Ten hoops. Then we wrap things up with a mailbag of reader questions.

    Each episode of Moving Screen is an instant must-listen. The more content you can pump out, the better!

    Yes any and all podcast content is a winner in my book. The format of power rankings after the weekend and a mailbag mid-week is good.

    But if everyone is a top 70ish prospect… They are on the radar enough to test the waters. Three big games in March can turn 62nd to 29th. There are just a lot of moving pieces. I mostly was just trying to say that I think it will be worth all three guys exploring their standing.
