This podcast was recorded at Human Element, the Ann Arbor-based team of software developers and designers who are currently (perhaps literally if the site seems slow right this second) deep in their Kerrytown nerd cave, entrusted with the top-down redesign of this very site.
We Couldn’t Have One Without the Other
We get to make audio content because we can afford the studio time and equipment to make it happen, and that is thanks in large part to our longest and greatest supporters, Rishi and Ryan, proprietors of UGP, Moe's, and the Bo Store.
All or our sponsors are people just as embedded in the MGocommunity and whom we know personally. Homesure Lending, Residence Inn Ann Arbor Downtown, the University of Michigan Alumni Association, Ann Arbor Elder Law, Deo Bookkeeping, Michigan Law Grad, Defensive Drivers Group, and Peak Wealth Management.
1. Michigan after Maverick: Big Ten Tourney Recap Part 1
starts against 0:55
How far these players have come. We back up to the streak (and a couple of weird things on the road) before to set up the culmination of Maverick Morgan’s white collar comeuppance, followed by out-x’s and o’s-ing the Big Ten’s best guy to talk to about X’s and O’s.
2. Michigan after Maverick Part 2 and Gaming the RPI
starts at 20:45
Second half of Minnesota everyone’s legs die, Derrick Walton puts the team on his back. Announcers have to learn to appreciate Walton shots. Praise for announcers AND for referees—I’m warning you now in case you get here and start to wonder if this really is the MGoPodcast you’re listening to.
3. NCAA Tourney Preview
starts at 37:10
Not a good draw—Oklahoma State was seeded way—however Beilein might be the exact kind of coach that Cowboy shtick doesn’t work against. If they’re hitting from 30 feet or Michigan’s not hitting their open threes, it’s tip your cap time. Louisville is some big scary blocky dudes who don’t score enough to be terrifying. Kansas is the 1 seed you want in your region.
4. Gimmicky Top 5: Great moments in 2016-'17 M Hoops
starts at 1:05:15
HUEL (Human Element to any HUEL marketing managers out there) co-founder Jason Magee sat in to reminisce our favorite moments. Jason, not Ace or Brian, remembered the one that David and I were going to pantomime in the studio if they didn’t get to it.
