Staff Picks recap: What's happened to Scott Bell? After starting the season with seven consecutive plus-.500 weeks, he's come back to earth in the past two, posting the worst records in each week.

Daniel Bromwich came back after a weak week to post an impressive score, bringing him right back into the thick of things at the top of the standings.

Pundits questioned whether Michigan's run defense could hold up against the tandem of Jehuu Caulcrick (thunder) and Javon Ringer (lightning) after five straight weeks against spread-based teams.

"I was just laughing. I thought it was funny. They got excited. Sometimes you get your little brother excited when you're playing basketball and you let him get the lead. Then you just come and take it back."
