Tonight is the only match-up between the Badgers and Wolverines in the regular season.

Good Saturday, evening, Michigan faithful. Tonight's going to be very tough contest for the Wolverines as they take on the two-loss Wisconsin Badgers, who are powered by Frank Kaminsky.

Fouad has described Michigan as a "rickety Millennium Falcon", which is pretty damn accurate. Sooner or later, they're going to get eaten up by that big space slug, like the Falcon did in The Lego Movie after Batman stole the hyperdrive. (That scene is just one of one thousand reasons why the lack of an Oscar nomination is ridiculous).

I'm keeping this pretty short. As of writing on Friday night, it's been a very long day, and Saturday is going to be busy, too, as I'll be with the family and then heading to the hockey game between the Wolverines and Badgers (thus missing the basketball game, but perhaps checking in from my mobile). I'll just leave you with a random Michigan thought--as I'm sitting here watching Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, I forgot that Strother Martin has a bit part in this fantastic movie. Strother Martin, the man famous for saying, "What we have here is failure to communicate" in Cool Hand Luke...and is a former Michigan Wolverine swimmer and diver.
