Per CMU athletic site, Michigan will get a rematch against CMU at Crisler Center this season on Saturday, 12/29. Falls perfectly into the schedule with Hockey. Got the GLI on Thursday & Friday and this game.

Michigan will try to avenge the 67-78 loss to CMU in year 1 on Beilein's tenure.

Yay I have an excuse to be hammered that day now! I hate watching my two schools play

EDIT: Figured I'd add a little bit about Central's team seeing as I've probably seen more of them then the majority of the board. We're in complete rebuild mode after firing Ernie Ziegler and losing Trey to Pitt after that. HIred Keno Davis of Prvidence fame. He plans on running his up tempo offense but it looks like it could take a while before it's fully implemented well. Leading scorer this year will most likely be Derek Jackson who returns this year after being in the top three in a lot of the offense categories last year. He's a high athletic guy who should fit into Davis' system well

Very true, I think that lost could actually be a bigger loss than Trey. Trey is a better player but expirence at point guard is very important and there was no way Trey was ever going to stay without his dad here. Also McBroom would have been a better fit in the new system than Trey would of been.

That should be a pretty fun weekend, UM Basketball, GLI, New Years Eve, and the Winter Classic on the 1st. And then Michigan football plays a week later
