Minutes after dropping an 81-73 decision at No. 3 Indiana on Saturday,
Michigan's basketball coach was asked if he was looking forward to his team's next three games.
Vs. Ohio State, at Wisconsin, at Michigan State.
"It's a heck of a stretch," Beilein said. "That's for sure."
Who has Michigan beaten? How good are the Wolverines? Can they win the Big Ten?
We're about to find out.
The most brutal portion of Michigan's schedule continues Tuesday (9 p.m., ESPN)
when Ohio State visits Crisler Center, the same Buckeye team that snapped the
Wolverines' 16-game winning streak and brought them back to Earth last month.
The same Ohio State team that's 8-1 against Michigan since 2010.

I don't think there is a Great team in CBB. I see a bunch of average teams with a couple good ones sprinkled in. Id say scUM is pretty good. Though you are correct they haven't really beat anyone great. I think NC State is their best win?
That being said we can def win, but I think it will be a tough one for us being on the road. Tough to win on the road in the B1G

I agree there is no great team. There is no 2007 Florida, 2009 North Carolina, or 2012 Kentucky in this year's crop. However, the last two Saturday night games - MSU-IU and UM-IU - have been pretty damn good with many talking about Final Four level of execution and intensity. I expect the same tomorrow. Playing at home in the Big Ten is worth about 5-10 points this season, so Michigan has the edge, but they are far from unbeatable.
I agree with this. UM coming off a loss...being at home...and tasting defeat to tOSU a few weeks ago. Going to be a tough one to win.
I think we matchup well against Michigan. If we were to win it it ensures we finish no worse than 3rd in the B10...They are beatable. If you play great perimeter defense you can beat them. Craft need to continue to take it to the rack. If he can get Burke in foul trouble that would bode well for the Buckeyes.
Aaron Craft is just the Kriptonite recipe for Superman Trey Burke tomorrow night. Now if someone other than Deshaun Thomas can score a few points, we have a chance.
Calling EMIR Williams, Lenzel Smith Jr. and LaQuintin Ross to the podium please !!
Going to be a tough one to win.......took keep my blood pressure down during the game I am not expecting us to win this one but scUM will have something to prove after taking it on the chin at IU. I will have to give them credit though....getting down big/early in that game at IU and they came back shows a lot of character and they did it without their starting center, Morgan. Will he be ready by Tuesday?
Our boys have a bad taste in their mouths from last year in the shit-hole up there so hopefully they can also use that as some motivation. Q has been stepping up and playing more with more confidence, Craft has been better offensively, and YES......something positive to say about Amir Williams!! I am not holding my breath but it would be nice if he can consistently give that same effort and improve his offensive abilities. I mean he actually grabbed the ball and ripped it out of a Wisky players hands?! 7-8 from the FT line? Some blocks, rebounds? Probably his best game of the year.
This would be a HUGE win for us......can't wait to hear scUM's assistant give another knee slapper of a pre-game speech.
I also do not think that the Wolverines match up well wiht the Buckeyes regardless of where this game would be played.....we are the best Defensive team in the B10, for points aganist and FG percentage Defense(.383%.) Michigan does not play well aganist athletic teams, and Craft has proven to be a pain in the rump to Burke....If the other guys go up their to play, we can take it!
