NCAA Basketball: Michigan at Northwestern David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan Wolverines men’s basketball is back on track, having one four of its last five games as the team looks to pad its tournament resume. We at Maize n Brew and SB Nation have been tracking your feedback and confidence in the team via our FanPulse poll (which you can and should sign up for here) and we have the latest data to share.

After a handful of dips over the last month or so, 94 percent of Michigan fans are confident about the direction of the basketball program under head coach Juwan Howard. The team is currently sitting at 15-9 on the season and 6-7 in conference play.

Here’s a look at how the data has come out over the first 12 weeks of the year.

Week 1 — 91.6 percent confidence

Week 2 — 85.3 percent

Week 3 — 90 percent

Week 4 — 91.6 percent

Week 5 — 98.3 percent

Week 6 — 100 percent

Week 7 — 98 percent

Week 8 — 93 percent

Week 9 — 88 percent

Week 10 — 71 percent

Week 11 — 86 percent

Week 12 — 94 percent

Fans from across the SB Nation network also chimed in on the team they feel is most overrated this season.
