And introducing SignalWire, which is the virtual office platform we recorded this on because we’ve had it up to here with Zoom (use the code MUPPETS and they’ll buy your team lunch!)1. Recapping FSU
starts at 1:00
Put that in your Seder. Florida State didn’t know what to do about Franz, Johns came alive. First time we’ve gotten to see Johns after a week to practice in this role, and first time we got to see Juwan coach with a week to prepare for a tournament opponent, something Beilein was always so good at. Chaundee can rise. FSU’s switching nerfed some of their better qualities.2. Previewing UCLA
starts at 25:21
Weird team that wants to be big but lost two bigs and now overplays their 6’9”/260 foul-prone guy because the next biggest player is 6’6”. Kind of like Maryland in that they have a lot of scary wings who take a lot of jump shots, plus a wild-haired point guard who can pass (top-50 assist rate). Were underrated with the rest of their conference but drill down into the Synergy numbers and there are a lot of weaknesses, not to mention they’re all way smaller than Michigan’s frontcourt and no bigger in the backcourt.3. A Farewell to WBB, Hockey, and Giles Jackson
starts at 42:57
Naz and the Browns took us as far as it could be believed, and further. Kind of like the 2009 basketball team that beat Clemson and hung with Blake Griffin, proving this is a program you can compete at. Hockey, man, at least it’s either star-touched Duluth or a team that’s never won it. Giles Jackson, man, at least we’ll always have the Indiana “return.”
