At press time, Harbaugh had sent Michigan’s athletic department an envelope containing a heavily annotated seating chart, a list of the 63,000 seat views he had found unsatisfactory, and a glowing 70-page report on section 25, row 12, seat 9, which he claimed is “exactly what the great sport of football is all about.”
This is some good news regarding frontcourt depth.
"Jon will be back hopefully in a short period of time after straining his left knee," Beilein said. "Right now it is too early to predict, however, we are optimistic he will return for the season opener."

Heading to A2 for @umichbball practice big question is the annual rebound concern now a strength w/ McGary Morgan Horford #norebound-noring
New facilities for @umichbball incredible 2 yrs ago substandard today a game changer no chance to recruit McGary & Robinson w/o the upgrade
First impression @umichbball most talent since the Fab Five - 5 legit NBA prospects 11 deep tremendous size loaded with athletes on the wing
#michiganbasketball practice thoughts Jon Horford is 260 top 5 bigs in the Big 10 Trey Burke has added leg strength Hardaway improved handle
Nick Stauskas @umichbball has not missed - Best M shooter since Lou Bullock? - like Jon Diebler from OSU but better athlete/handle #starter?
Nice little interview with Simmons as they chat CWebb. The story about how Jalen met Chris was great, and it's really interesting to me that both Jalen and CWebb are now so very active members of the media.
Jalen Rose is going to join ABC/ESPN's pregame NBA Countdown show this year in addition to analyst on ESPN2's Numbers Never Lie, current podcast on Grantland Network, and new role on ESPN College Basketball Gameday. He may be spreading himself thin, but he is now a rising media star and going to be one of the most visible analysts on ESPN.
He taped a new podcast with Bill Simmons yesterday as they are both joining NBA Countdown this fall, and Jalen offers some insight on his recruitment, relationship with Chris Webber, Ed Martin, and rooming together in college. Sounds like Webber took the money right before he left school and turned pro.
