- Carlos Brown, Brandon Minor, and David Molk are all listed as probable on this week’s injury report. Zac Johnson is once again listed as out.
- This week’s captains are Carlos Brown, David Moosman, Stevie Brown, and Zoltan Mesko.
- Although he won’t be returning to the starting lineup, there is a chance that Boubacar Cissoko could play tomorrow.
- F-18 Super Hornets are going to fly over Michigan Stadium before tomorrow’s game.
- Rich Rodriguez had lunch with Lloyd Carr and Bill Martin yesterday to talk about Penn State and most likely to discuss Martin’s retirement.
“We got to talk a little football, and Lloyd had great success against Penn State, so we talked about some things there,” Rodriguez said.
I’m surprised Carr had time for lunch considering he is so busy undermining Rodriguez. He probably just fed him bad information anyway. Right, conspiracy theorists?
- The coverage map for tomorrow’s game has been released.
- I am now tied for third-place in Big Ten Bloggers Pick’em.
- Michigan’s first home hockey game of the regular season was last night, and the Wolverines beat Niagara 3-2. The game was much closer than anybody expected, because it started out 3-0 after one period. Michigan scored with such ease at the start of the game that it looked like Niagara was going be down by as many as 5 goals after 20 minutes of play. I expected it to be an easy blowout, and the team must have as well, because things got very sloppy after the third goal was scored. Michigan just didn’t seem to be playing with very much intensity, allowing Niagara to get back in the game. Niagara’s goalie deserves a lot of credit for shaking off the 3-goal first period, because he really kept his team in the game by making some amazing saves. Michigan had quite a few great scoring chances but couldn’t put the puck in the back of the net. Thankfully neither could Niagara in the closing seconds of the game, though it was close to doing just that. In the end, though, Michigan held on for a 3-2 victory.
- Michigan will play at Boston University tomorrow, which will be a very tough matchup. Boston is the defending national champion, and Michigan lost to the Terriers by a score of 7-2 last season. Michigan will play at Lake Superior State next Friday and Saturday, and the Wolverines will then return home the following Friday and Saturday to play Miami, the team Boston beat to win the national championship last season.
