    Looking at OSU, MSU and Illinois we have to be realistic that we are not in their league yet. Success breeds more success. I think TC can do this but winning in the B10 will be very tough.

    Alex, any reason the Star was removed from “Resources” on the right nav? Just asking purely out of curiosity.

    Because they are lame in their coverage is my guess.

  • BGleas

    I definitely agree with you on that. Their coverage is lame, and they've completely missed the boat on social media and blogging. Their blogs are not updated regularly and are poorly written. But, the Star wasn't the only lame site on the right nav 🙂

  • Quick question: just got my tickets for the Michigan game, and, never having been to a game yet and not knowing how it works; how do I read it? My ticket says Section #1, row 14, South Court. Would that be the section 1 that is at the end of the court behind the hoop?
