Game on ESPN2, and maybe the last good one till almost the new year (Iowa State isn't what they once were, and lost to Drake).  So might be the last exciting game with a month's worth of development (maybe more...how do we start AND end the Big Ten season with Penn State?). And if I'm wrong, there's always Rudolph at 8 pm. (Oh who am I kidding, set your dvr).

Whenever you play on the road, if you can survive the first 10 minutes without digging yourself in a hole, it's a good thing. Just need to figure out UVa's defense and the points will come. Luckily they're missing shots and having turnovers like we are.

Can somebody throw up the score occasionally. I like reading everyones comments while I'm on the road but I hate having to switch between apps to see the score. Thank you in advance.

"As far as offense goes, this isn't a Picasso." 

Smot bails them out with a cheap reach in foul late in the shot clock.

17-12, UVA shooting 1-1 after the TO.

Were Eso Akunne and Christian expected to get much playing time this season? I've already seen a lot more of them than I did last year.  Would be great if we can get some productive depth.

They talk about Zack Novak's three year captaincy every single game. I'm not tired of it.

Not a great half, but with THJ's minutes reduced big time, you've gotta feel good about Michigan's chances.
