Michigan Tuesday: News and Notes

Since we are on a bye week, not much of any news is being generated on the Wolverines.   So today, I will give you a potpourri of topics:

  • Game time is set for the Michigan - Minnesota game in two weeks:  3:30pm on ABC or ESPN2.  The Golden Gophers have Iowa this week at home. 

  • This is an odd week for Big Ten schools it seems there are only 4 Big Ten games with 6 Big Ten teams playing.

  • Ohio State gets to host Wisconsin at 8:00 on ABC on Saturday, next week they will be at Northwestern again on ABC at 8:00.  We will see what OSU has the next two weeks.

  • Michigan has dropped from #2 to #4 in ESPN's Big Ten Power Rankings.

  • Mitch McGary was named on the first team USA Today Pre-Season All American Team.

  • Denard averaged 27 yards on his two kick off returns last week.  He fumbled one wildcat carry and was hit for -2 in his other carry.   He has had a total of 4 carries for a total of -1 yard in 3 games.  Since they are 0-3 you might want to give him a few more shots.
