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?
