Michigan received two first place votes (AP) and one first place vote from USA Today, but remain #2 behind Duke. #3 Syracuse had a major drop to #9, after their first loss to Temple. Also nice to see Pittsburgh and Kansas State make the poll at #24 and #25 respectively, since we beat them in the NIT Preseason tourney at Madison Square Gardens. Happy Holidays Michigan Family!!
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.”
