    Did I miss something? I thought this was Inside the Hall. Why so much focus on that state up North?

  • It’s August 16. We are going to preview several other Big Ten teams leading up to the season.

    Thanks for the clarification. I can’t listen to these at work so all I could see was the run down of topics and it seemed odd.

    I had that same initial thought, but then realized that it’s always nice to know what’s going on down the street (so to speak). Information is power, that is a truism.

    I thought the range of expectations for Michigan was an interesting discussion. It will be interesting to see how the season plays out.
