A little context for the expected early-season–though mid-season form–UMhoops panic:
Kentucky just beat East Tennessee state (124 on Kenpom, but that’s probably inflated just by playing Kentucky, no?) by only 17, at home.
Duke beat Southern (331 in kenpom, before they played Duke) by only 17, at home.
Obviously not saying Michigan is anywhere near as good as those teams, and Im not saying there isn’t reason for some concerns regarding Michigan, just pointing out that not every good team destroys their cupcakes.
