SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) - FOX 2's Sports Director Dan Miller was joined by John Niyo & Will Burchfield on the roundtable as they talked about Michigan State's win over Ohio State, but losing Nick Ward to a broken hand. John says the loss of Ward will just add to Cassius Winston's workload and the ceiling for the team keeps shrinking. Will says they need Thomas Kithier to step up now. Dan says they have lost two of the three guys they rely on to make big plays.
The roundtable moved on to Michigan and how they might not have enough offense to make a long NCAA run. Will talks how important a rejuvenated Charles Matthews is. John says every game will be a grind.
Tigers are next on the rundown and FOX 2's Jennifer Hammond has the latest from spring training. The crew talks about the pitching staff and who can stand out this season. Will says it's Daniel Norris' time to prove if he is a major league pitcher. They also talked about the latest with Nicholas Castellanos.
The crew moved on to the Red Wings and their two losses this weekend. John says it's a big week for them with the trade deadline coming up. Will says he is looking at what they get for Gustav Nyquist and Jimmy Howard. John says he's looking at Nick Jensen.
Pistons were also debated and where they currently are after the trade deadline. John says you might as well go for it and have some playoff basketball in Detroit. Will agrees at all since there have been no playoff series in Detroit since 2016.
