Fall Practice starts tomorrow
Fall practice kicks off tomorrow (August 4, 2008) and Coach Rod is ready to go. There will be 29 Fall practice sessions before the Wolverines kick off their season on August 30, 2008 vs. Utah. Michigan will have single session practices this week and two-a-day practices commence Saturday, August 9, 2008. Media/Photo Day is scheduled for Sunday, August 17th. The following day (August 18, 2008), the Big Ten Network (BTN) program "Big Ten Tonight: Football Practice" will be on campus to film practice. The broadcast will air at 9:00 p.m. that night. In addition, BTN will broadcast its Michigan Football season preview on Aug. 23 at 6:30 p.m.
If you cannot wait for the end of the month to watch a Michigan game, you can always try watching some classic Wolverine contests on the BTN to tide you over. On Sunday, August 10, 2008 at 11:00 p.m. EST, the Big Ten Network is showing the classic 1993 Rose Bowl game during which Tyrone Wheatley ran for 235 yards and 3 touchdowns in a 38-31 Michigan victory over Washington. On Monday, August 11, 2008 at 6:00 a.m. EST the BTN will replay the classic 1997 Michigan/Ohio State game that put the Wolverines into the Rose Bowl to play for the National Championship. Set your Tivo recorders. Go Blue!
