Indiana lost last night to Minnesota, which means Michigan needs 4 more wins for a share of the Big Ten Championship. Michigan plays at Penn State tonight, MSU home this weekend, a trip to Purdue and home to current #1 Indiana. MSU and IU at home will not be easy but Michigan struggled with Penn State just a week ago and a trip to Purdue will be difficult. It's doable but it will be tough. (If Michigan wins out and IU only loses to Michigan they would be tied for the Big Ten Title)
It's a strange tip off tonight at 6:30, BTN has the game.
- I know BHB reader Uncle Ron loves him some walk-on news. This isn't new news but Angelique writes a nice story about future walk-on Jack Wangler. Jack turned down a chance to play at Harvard to follow in his dad's footsteps in Ann Arbor. Jack won't be throwing the ball he will be catching it from one of his best friends in Shane Morris.
- Manti Te'o is not having a good 2013 so far. His weight was way down and ran a 4.8 in the 40. The reaction of John Harbaugh to his time was priceless
- Here is Brady Hoke's statement on Jerry Montgomery:
"You always hate to lose members of your staff, but you know going in that at a program like Michigan, other schools and NFL teams are going to come after them. However, I am confident that we will name a new coach who fits in very well with our staff soon."
- Sounds like MSU is going to hire Purdue's OL coach as their new OC. Jim Bollman served as Tressel's OC for 10 years at OSU.
