Game Thread: Can Michigan Leave Carver-Hawkeye 10-1?

Michigan is 9-1 in league play and will hit the road to take on a 6-4 Iowa Hawkeyes team looking to pick themselves up off the floor.

Welcome to the Michigan at Iowa game thread, everyone!

Back on January 22 the Wolverines were able to do more than just handle Iowa in an 8-point win in Ann Arbor; they sent a notice to everyone else that they weren't to be underestimated. With today's game being on the road things may not go as well as they did in January; we've already seen how road teams (including Michigan in Bloomington) have fared so far this season.

If you've ready anything else that I've written, you may remember that I hate all things Iowa. Okay, maybe not all things Iowa, but most things. This is a state that gave us Steve Doocy, Michele Bachman, and Tom Arnold; that should be enough to make everyone gag. Of course, those people may be offset by John Wayne and the underrated beauty Donna Reed (yeah, I like old movies and classic beauties), but I try very hard to ignore that they were born there.

Okay, so there's something more important that my hatred of Iowa going on today, so let's get to it. Be sure to check out the Hoops Preview and the Starting Five with BHGP. Enjoy the early basketball game, comment like this is the most important thread ever, mind the guidelines, and Go Blue!
