Pat Caputo: Hard Evidence Suggests Michigan Has Caught Michigan State In Basketball

Michigan State fans don’t like this notion, but I believe it to be true. Not based on 2008 or 2009. Or 2000. But in the world as it exists in 2012. The one we live in now.
Michigan’s basketball program has caught Michigan State’s. Why? The proof?

They had the same record this season in the Big Ten, sharing the conference title. They split their two meetings. The Spartans schedule was tougher than Michigan’s overall, but not to the degree MSU’s faithful is saying. State had nice wins over Gonzaga and Florida State. But didn’t anybody notice Gonzaga lost to St. Mary’s in the West Coast Conference title game Monday? Michigan did beat UCLA, Iowa State and Memphis in non-conference play. Not bad. Like MSU, the Wolverines did split with Ohio State.
