Outstanding analysis of Michigan Hoops and the entire Big Ten. Dylan and Eric provide a more in-depth review of plays and analytics that explain why results play out the way they do. I look forward to the new pod each week…great job guys!

Awesome pod!

Anyone not listening to this pod isn’t watching basketball at as high of a level as they could be.

This content is crazy good and makes my Michigan viewing experience so much better. Recommend to any potential listeners!
