The nutty Michigan coverage isn't so much about Harbaugh as it is a signal to the Big Ten that Fox wants to party.
According to a release from BTN, the Michigan vs. Massachusetts game will be at 3:30 PM on BTN.
Was just reading a post over at BHGP (LINK) in which Patrick Vint dresses down that latest SEC playoff proposal. The comments themselve make it worth following the link but one of the BHGP contributors threw in a link to the following EDSBS article:
Confessions of an SEC Fan to a Big Ten Fan
Good read on a slow day.
Hey all. On Monday, the Golden Nugget will be releasing pointspread on upwards of 100 games of the year. Several of Michigan's game will be on the early board and, for sure, I will put together an in depth post breaking those down in the diary section.......
But, why wait until then. Especially when one of my favorite blogs Beyond The Bets came out with their spread projections for every conference game to be played this season. Here is the link to their Big 10 projections......and here are the projected spreads for the MICH games:
UM -7 at Purdue
Illinois +18 at UM
MSU +6.5 at UM
UM +3.5 at Nebraska
UM -14.5 at Minnesota
NW +17.5 at UM
Iowa +14 at UM
UM +4 at OSU
Not gonna lie. That MSU +6.5 looks mighty tempting
Figured this might spark some discussion. Look for something more in-depth in the diary sections on the actual lines released on Monday
And, I plan a series of Michigan player/positional unit/key stat previews throughout the summer here. If all goes according to plan, I'lll have the first up in the diary section sometime tomorrow. You've seen this before where we make up Over/Under prop bets. We debuted this summer's other Big 10 previews over at the JCB with Northwestern.

For the first time in the history of the ESPN team recruiting rankings, Michigan is No. 1. With 21 commitments, 11 of whom reside in the ESPN 150
Title says it all. 2,000 former NFL players are expected to file a class action lawsuit against the NFL, alleging that the NFL covered up information that their product caused head injuries. This is the biggest class action lawsuit that players have brought against any pro sports league.
