Tuesday Morning Brews: The land of ice and snow

We are talking basketball, wrestling, lacrosse, and football

NCAA Football: Indiana at Michigan Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

If you’re a Michigan fan living in the midwest, I would like to send you well wishes. Absolutely brutal sub zero temperatures are ravaging the state, enough for the Governor of Michigan to declare a state of emergency.

Michigan students will still be having class during said state of emergency, and U-M athletics will keep on trucking along as well despite some horrible weather.

Let’s get to the brews and warm up your morning:

Get your Motown on

A rivalry game against Ohio State at Crisler sounds appealing, but cranking some Motown tunes and dancing to “ain’t no mountain high enough”, “I’ll be there”, “Oh baby give me one more chance”, and more sure sounds swell. The Motown was a tremendous era of R&B sound, with its roots firmly being planted in Detroit. It sounds like a fun night at Crisler for those in attendance! Plus, OSU stinks this year and Michigan should get the W.


The women’s basketball team had a historic day on Sunday. Although the ladies fell to Michigan State 77-73, the game was sold out. In all, 12,707 fans attended. They will be taking on No. 17 Iowa on Thursday at Crisler.

Down go the Buckeyes

The Michigan wrestling team is damn good, and they proved it yet again over the weekend, beating Ohio State narrowly 19-17. The No. 6 Wolverines are now 9-0 on the season.

Lacrosse ranked in first poll of season

Michigan’s lacrosse season will begin on February 9th at Cleveland State, but in the first poll of the season, they find themselves ranked in the top 20. Michigan just made the cut being ranked at No. 20.

Gary and Bush to participate in skills competition

If you’re not doing anything on Friday night, you might want to check out the All Star Challenge, where Rashan Gary and Devin Bush will both be representing the Big Ten. The Challenge is a lot like the Pro Bowl Skills Competition, an event I find to be WAY more entertaining than the Pro Bowl. Tune in if you so please.
