08:14 AM ET 02.04 | Coming of a weekend loss to Indiana, Michigan has Ohio State looming on Tuesday before a two-game road stretch against Wisconsin and Michigan State. Are they ready? There's a constant sense of urgency in college basketball today that Michigan can't ignore. They've got a truly special player in Trey Burke. He's the best point guard in the country and quite possibly the best player in the country. Guys like that don't come around too often so you had better take full advantage of his talents while he's still around. ... Without him, this is strictly a marginal collection of recruits few thought much of initially rather than a team that must be taken seriously once February morphs into March. Burke probably isn't staying in Ann Arbor beyond this season.

Drew Sharp strikes again.

I believe these Freshmen were a Top 10 recruiting class (maybe even Top 5). How they have become a "marginal collection" is beyond me. Burke is a sophmore.

Michigan will most likely beat Indiana in A2. Tuesday vs OSU is big for UM's title hopes with at Wisconsin and at MSU looming after that. 2 of the next 3 would be very good.

Drew never lets the facts get in the way of an opportunity to stir the pot.

Agreed.

BTW . . . you B1G b-ball fans out there . . . how painful is it to watch Wisconsin? I honestly am getting to the point that I root against them just because my eyes hurt watching them. ;-)

Maybe not that bad but it is REALLY hard to watch.

Who in the name of Mary leaves the window open this time of year?
