The Northwestern Wildcats take on the No. 1 Michigan Wolverines up in Ann Arbor. ERRRRRRRRR
Northwestern! Michigan! Err, sorry, No. 1 Michigan. They're the No. 1 team in the country. There's 346 other teams that are worse than them according to the people who are involved voting on that stuff, including Northwestern. So, uh, they're good and stuff!
I was pretty down on everything earlier when I wrote my preview about this game, and, well, I still am. I still don't think Northwestern has much of a chance. But hey, it's an opportunity to take down a No. 1, and that's something that doesn't happen all the time. As unlikely as it is that it happens, you know, its a game. I'll be watching, and if something does happen, hopefully you are too. ESPN's already running promos for Michigan vs. Indiana on Saturday. Show em how dumb that is, y'all!
Game's an early one - 5:30 p.m. on the BTN - so get ready. Don't leave work early, though - money's important and stuff.
