Sportscaster Teddy Solomon here with Dawn's insiders coming at you guys with another video.
It's been a while since I've been on here. I actually got a concussion.
Or this week, Uh, and I've just had a lot of headaches and haven't been ableto you stream it on here, but now I'm back with another video.
Michigan State Men's basketball.
One of my favorites in college basketball this upcoming season, I think Michigan State it definitely title contender.
I would say that they are my savior right now.
To win the national championship, most likely because of cash is Winston.
I've been cautious. Winston's a phenomenal player.
I think he made a great decision not to declare for the draft, uh, this past season, because we're going to see a weak draft class this next season. That's my call.
I think that we saw a very strong when this past season, Um, so I want to talk about their schedule right now, now that we know a lot about their skin.
So their first game is November 5th against Kentucky in New York.
So you've got that neutral site game against Kentucky.
Everyone's gonna be watching this Kentucky being a powerhouse program.
Michigan State being pretty consistently called a top three team in the country.
And that's gonna be a big game for Michigan State to solidify that over one of the nation's biggest powerhouses.
I think Michigan State takes that game and they go into their next skin, where they're playing Binghamton at home in East Lansing and we'll win that one.
And then they go on Thio for their first big challenge.
Really, which is, er at Seton Hall.
So they're gonna be going to seed in Hall.
That's a challenge.
It's not a huge challenge, but I think they're gonna be narrow favorites in this, I'd say probably three point favorites at Seton Hall.
Seeding Hole's not gonna be phenomenal, but they're gonna be good, and that's gonna be a tough game.
They gotta prove themselves on the road in Michigan.
State needs to win that one Caches.
Winston needs to leave that team's victory there.
Then Michigan State goes on to take on Charleston.
Southern should be an easy win, also in East Lansing, right before they go on to go to now for the Maui Invitational.
That's gonna be a big tournament they're taking on Virginia Tech.
Virginia Tech was very good this past season.
I think they'll be good again this season.
But they lost their coach, Buzz Williams.
They lost some other big time players for their program, including carried Blackshear, and I think that they're not gonna be quite as good as they were last season.
You guys sell them, give do quite the game.
Last season in the tournament, they were a very good team.
I don't expect them to be as good, and then they'll be taking on Dayton or Georgia, both teams that are also very beatable.
So up to this point in the season, I like Michigan State to stay undefeated, go into December undefeated, ranked number one in the country.
That's what I'm gonna be calling right now.
I think that will be the case.
And then December 3rd at Michigan State, they're taking on Duke in the CC Big 10 Challenge.
All eyes will be on this game.
I don't think Duke is gonna be a great team that are bringing back trade. Jones.
They did have a great draft class, is recruiting classes always, But I think that Duke is going to be a little bit down from last season definitely loosens.
Barrett losing cameras, so I think that it's going to be a very good game.
I think Michigan State will be favorite for sure, with it being at Michigan State and another chance to prove themselves up to this point, Their biggest challenges will have been maybe a game in Maui and then that game in New York against Kentucky, the game at Seton Hall, all usable games, games.
I think Michigan State will.
So this could be the game where Michigan State loses that undefeated record.
In what I think I could happen this upcoming college basketball season, Uh, but Duke will probably lose that one, Just given the fact that it's at Michigan State and Duke is down a bit.
I think I see Duke ating around number 15 in the country.
This is then they've got a little bit of being easier run.
They got rockers followed by Oakland, followed by a game at Northwestern.
Not an easy game.
That's a Big 10 game, true road games and at this point in the season, you gotta say they probably will have lost a game by now.
They're definitely not gonna make it through the Big 10 without losing a game.
The Big Ten's a superstrong conference.
Uh, so then we go into conference, But I'm not gonna talk about that at length right now.
Just talking about out of conference.
But in conference, I will say they've got some stiff competition.
You guys know Michigan There always a phenomenal team.
They've got to compete with Indiana.
They got to compete with with Northwestern.
As I said, Wisconsin, these Air, all teams that can take them down.
And the Big Ten's gonna be a battle.
I think Michigan State comes out on top both regular season and in the conference tournament.
And I had them winning the tournament as of now, until I, uh until I get to see more of these teams and decide, I wouldn't say that's a firm pick.
I wouldn't say that I'd necessarily have that pick if you ask me in a couple of months.
But right now I think Michigan State's the best team in the country.
So that's all I've got for you guys right now.
