Podcast: Breaking down Juwan Howard’s early decisions

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.

Note: We started with Michigan State on this week’s pod after skipping the Spartans for two weeks in a row. Michigan talk starts at 37:51, full timestamps below.

It has been a quiet offseason for Michigan State but that’s not always a bad thing. We (finally) spend some time discussing Michigan State’s roster for 2019-20, make the case for the Spartans as preseason No. 1 and discuss Joey Hauser’s fit.

Then we get back to Michigan and examine Juwan Howard’s early decisions on the job. Howard has selected his assistant coaches and extended his first scholarship offer. What do those decisions say about him as the man in charge?

    Sorry ya’ll, started with MSU this week. Some good Michigan talk on the back half though.

    Early prediction: this pod is awesome with lotsa awesomeness

    No apologies necessary. Michigan fans are only half of your target audience. That has been clear since the first pod… we have just been treated to minimal amounts of that green nonsense the past couple of pods :wink:

    Good podcast with Phil Martelli, I think he’s going do really well on the recruiting trail. Also if it wasn’t clear by the Christopher offer, it seems pretty clear Juwan and the staff plan to go after the best of the best.

    Good find @goblue8. I think Quinn mentioned on the podcast that Martelli loves to do radio interviews of all sorts. A good example.
