"He's a hard worker, and he watched me and Tim (Hardaway Jr.) and Nik (Stauksas) put work in to become (first-round picks), and I'm just happy he's getting better," Burke said. "It's great for the program, too. It shows what type of program the University of Michigan is and the direction it continues to go in."

They did announce it, but since there still seems to be a lot of questions on it, it's as follows:
-Conference Record (Good for The Game having meaning in winning your division)
In case of Multiple team tie:
-Collective head-to-head record among tied teams (I would think the old "if one team beat the other two, they go; or if two beat the 3rd, eliminate that one, and go back to previous tie-breaker)
-Division Record (probably after true round robin)
-BCS Component (which is like the first tie-breaker after head to head in the Big 12, isn't it?)
There were a couple of people wondering about the band's schedule for Saturday given the extra festivities. Here's the latest info from the MMB newsletter:
Game Day Schedule
10:00 AM - MMB Rehearsal begins at Elbel Field
12:00 PM – Rehearsal ends
1:00 PM - The Victors Walk @ Michigan Stadium
2:00 PM - The Drumline Step Show in front of Revelli Hall
2:30 PM – Inspection on the steps of Revelli Hall
2:40 PM - Step Off for Michigan Stadium
2:55 PM - Arrive at the Big House
3:20PM - Pregame Show
3:30 PM - Kickoff - Michigan vs. UConn
In about 18 hours the first kickoff of the first game will occur at Groves Stadium for the matchup between Wake Forest and Presbyterian. Although that game may not get you excited there are 18 games that are going to be played.
Two games will be on the Big Ten Network as Indiana squares off against Towson at 7:30 pm, and Ohio State vs. Marshall
There are actually four top-25 teams that are playing today being Ohio State (2), Miami (13), USC (14), and Pitt (15).
I was wondering which game would you all most like to see. In my opinion I want to watch Ohio State vs. Marshall and Pittsburgh vs. Utah.
Here's the link for today's schedule:
By the looks of it, people in Michigan will be able to watch OSU/Marshall. To check which game you can see, here is the site:
Who will this affect more? I would assume us since UCONN is such a run heavy team!
Since the home opener now is officially 2 days away we all know how important it is for Michigan to get into this game with an early lead. This Uconn team is not a joke like Deleware State or BG. They are skilled in areas on defense and offense and for Michigan to come out with some fire, an early 7-0 lead is the way to get the fire lit. What would also be nice to see is a Uconn 3 and out if we choose to kickoff. A kickoff off return for a an early touchdown would blow the clouds out of the sky above the Big House. What's one big thing your looking to see on our first drive down field? Ball security, good passing, broken tackles, big gains, a touchdown or all of the above? If defense is our first stand of the game what key things will you be looking for?
