A frenetic night of basketball gushes into today's show. The progress of Michigan was stymied last night by Oregon, but Al touches on why Michigan fans shouldn't be too upset with the result. Al makes the rounds around the college basketball scene, scrutinizing the resumes of the teams that have already punched their tickets to the Elite Eight. Current Sports engineer Isaac Constans provides his takeaways, as well. Then, Al brings on a Michigan alumni who is $12,500 poorer but rich in school pride--Derek Stevens, owner of The D casino in Las Vegas. Derek describes the ups and lows of his time following the Wolverines. Next, Al and Isaac try to predict what the future looks like for the Michigan basketball roster. And you know how it's closed out every week, as 'Reflection Friday' finishes off the show.
