  • The Purdue game on November 7 will start at noon and be broadcast on the Big Ten Network.
  • Lloyd Carr talked up Rich Rodriguez and proclaimed his support for the football program on the radio during the opening quarter of the Penn State game.  I’m sure some people will criticize Carr for waiting so long so do something like this, but maybe now we can all move on and stop worrying about what Carr does or doesn’t do.
  • Junior Hemingway only suffered a knee bruise from the hit Donovan Warren put on him during a punt.  Warren was pushed in the back as he ran down the field and his helmet nailed one of Hemingway’s knees.  At the time it looked like a pretty serious injury, but it thankfully only ended up being a bruise.
  • The Michigan Daily chatted with Cass Tech head coach Thomas Wilcher about Boubacar Cissoko.
  • It has been a rough few days for Cissoko, but one piece of good news for him is that his disorderly conduct charge was dismissed because the arresting officer didn’t show up to court.
  • Devin Gardner led Inkster to an amazing upset of Steubenville, an Ohio team, last week.  Gardner threw a 63-yard touchdown pass with 34 seconds left to give the lead back to Inkster after Steubenville made a comeback, and Inkster’s defense forced an interception as time was winding down to seal the upset.  The loss was Steubenville’s first at home since 2001 and something like their first regular season defeat in seven years.
  • Rich Rodriguez would like to see the addition of another signing period sometime in December.
  • Mike Milano was acquitted of felony assault and instead convicted of a misdemeanor for last year’s incident that left Steve Kampfer in the hospital with a cracked skull.  The judge actually made it known that he disagreed with the verdict, saying this after it was announced: “For what it’s worth, I’d find the defendant not guilty and recommend that you file for an order to have it expunged, which I’ll be pleased to sign.”  It seems unbelievable to me that a judge would say that, especially considering there is no doubt that Milano slammed Kampfer to the ground.  I guess this story may not be over just yet even though the trial is finished.
  • Michigan lost 3-2 to Boston University in hockey last Saturday.  Michigan made a third-period comeback and came back from a 2-0 deficit, but a late goal by Boston was enough to win the game.  The Wolverines will be on the road this weekend for a two-game series at Lake Superior State, and then next week they return to Yost Arena to host Miami (Ohio), the top-ranked team in the country.
  • The Big Ten’s baseball tournament may be headed to Columbus on a permanent basis, which really sucks for every team in the conference except Ohio State.
  • MVictors shot a video of the pregame flyover from last Saturday.
  • Also at MVictors is an in-depth look at whether or not the current Little Brown Jug is actually the original one or if it is a fake.  I won’t give away what Greg concluded as you really should read the post for yourself, but let’s just say that I was pleased with the findings.
  • Brian of mgoblog shared some new information on possible candidates to replace Bill Martin, including some interesting tidbits on Dave Brandon.
